Hotel and Travel


There are many options to choose from in the beautiful city of Copenhagen. We know it might be overwhelming. Therefore, we have tried to narrow down the options so that we can have most of the students together at one place. We all know it’s more fun that way 😀

We recommend the following options:

  1. Generator Hostel (if you want to stay in Copenhagen)
  2. Postgaarden Hotel (if you wish to stay close to the conference venue)

P.S: If you are a group of students traveling together, we recommend booking together.

Generator Hostel:

Generator Hostel is a new breed of design and experience led hostels, located in the heart of Copenhagen. This is our first recommendation. It is also close to public transport and it takes around 40 mins to the conference venue (by bus 150S or 15E).

We have already secured a discount of flat 20% on the list price, between the 5th to 9th June 2018. You can make your bookings directly at Make sure to write in comments “IONS Scandinavia 2018” in order to be grouped with other IONS attendees.

Postgaarden Hotel:

Hotel Postgaarden is centrally located in the heart of Kongens Lyngby, close to the train station. You can take public transport (10 mins to the conference) or walk (30 min to the conference).

Bookings can be made at either or through our website:
