I can help you. However, I'm not sure exactly what you're looking at when you pull up www.sj.se, since there's a lot of information on that site (and you can click 'In English' - I hope you saw that?). "SJ" for "Statens Järnvägar" is the Swedish Railroad Company, and this is their website. Let me know the different choices you see for Copenhagen when you pull it up, and I will tell you which is the best one for you.

And the other site: Ingerslevsgade is right next to the Central Train Station in Copenhagen. It's pretty much downtown. You are exactly 500 metres (half a kilometer) away from Rådhuspladsen ("City Hall Square"), which most people would probably agree is THE most central part of Copenhagen. If you were to walk from Ingerslevsgade to Rådhuspladsen (easy enough unless you have lots of luggage), you would have the famous Tivoli Amuseument Park on your right.

Let me know what other questions you may have. I can't help you with hostels, but if you have the address I can tell you what the neighborhood is like and how far away from the "action" you might be!

Quoting averynkh

may i kow which one is more centre area?

They are about 100 metres apart. Here's a link to a Google map which shows both on the same map.

I then did a search here on Travellerspoint and here's a list of properties available on 1 August (didn't have your dates, so just used this) with their ratings, price per person, per night and distance from half way in between the rail and bus stations ;) I stopped the list at properties further than 1 km away.

Hotel Ansgar
0.07km (Hotel)
77%
From €44

Absalon Annex
0.17km (Hostel)
74%
From €37

Hotel Nebo Copenhagen
0.18km (Hotel)
78%
From €33

Hotel Selandia
0.19km (Hotel)
76%
From €49

Hotel Loeven
0.36km (Hotel)
79%
From €34

City Public Hostel
0.45km (Hostel)
67%
From €18

Hotel Copenhagen
0.69km (Hotel)
70%
From €28

Hotel Euroglobe
0.82km (Hotel)
59%
From €32

CABINN Copenhagen Express
0.89km (Hotel)
71%
From €38

Hotel Jorgensen
0.96km (Hostel)
30%
From €23

If you want to do a similar search for the correct dates, visit the Copenhagen budget accommodation page and fill in the form at the top with dates and preferred currency. Hit the 'check availability and prices' button which will give you a list of all properties available on those dates. To see the distance from where you're arriving, just filter by 'Distance' instead of 'Popularity' and enlarge the map that's showing at the top of the page. You'll see a big reddish marker in the middle which you can drag around and it will automatically show you the list of available properties and their distance from the marker. If you then zoom in and stick the marker right on top of the bus station or train station, you'll have a really accurate idea of where each hostel is located compared to where you're arriving! Sounds complicated, but it's not that bad :)

thanks guys!

hi bgi,
i knew there is an eng ver for SJ train, i just dun kow which station it ends in copenhagen... coz it just written "Stockholm – Malmö – Copenhagen"

so Ingerslevsgade will be centre as most pp agree, then at the moment i probably will search my hostel around this area and swebus express will be my choice then.... and this route doesnt need to transfer (as i know) but SJ needs to transfer train at malmo...

i have quite heavy luggages, 500m is crazy far for me.... but i will still try to find hostel around here though...

sam i am,
thanks a lot!!!

so the train station is just one in the town where is end of SJ?
may i kow the name of the station? :P
so i can check the fares from stockholm c....

and the bus stop shown on the map is Ingerslevsgade whcih run by swebus express?
so i can find my hostel from the area and from your list... i will stay in hostel

The Danish name for the Central Train Station in Copenhagen is København H. And if you have plenty of luggage - just take a taxi. There are plenty of buses, but if you have heavy luggage that may be too much of a hassle.

i think i will take bus then, it seems to be cheaper...

do u guys think that just stay at copenhagen is enough for my denmark trip?
coz i just found out that is a ferry route from copenhagen to poland (Swinoujscie, btw, is this place tourist spot?)
actually i am still thinking of after denmark, i should go to poland thru germany or jsut fly to crezh repub/poland, after that only i go to germany.... then will be belgium and netherlands, maybe...

coz copenhagen is just right next to sweden, and it is capital, i should have to visit :P
but since there is ferry to poland, it just makes my route smoother
i mean, i dun have to pass by germany to poland/crezh repub or fly to there,
as flight tic use to be more expensive...

my friend recomm me to see skagerack and kattegat, but i searched a bit, it doesnt seem very special, and it is at another island (far from copenhagen).... anything so special to it as my sweden fr recomm to me?

8. Posted by bgl (Full Member 167 posts) 7y

Skagerak is the body of water north of Denmark (between Denmark and Norway) and Kattegat is the large body of water east of Denmark (between Denmark and Sweden). And that's north of the island of Själland (Zeeland) where Copenhagen is located. The fairly narrow body of water between Zeeland and Sweden is called Öresund in Swedish, Øresund in Danish.

Unless you have a specific place in mind, visiting "Skagerak" and "Kattegat" is a bit vague and ambiguous. It's like visiting "the Atlantic Ocean". If you spend a few days in Copenhagen, you may want to take a train or bus north to Helsingør (Elsinore). Cute little town. Interesting castle. And if you want to see a very different building, head over to Malmö in Sweden and have a look at the Turning Torso, a 56 story apartment building that "turns" 90 degrees from the base to the top. Simply google for "Turning Torso", and you'll get photos. Impossible to describe, and probably one of the most unique apartment buildings in the world.

Can't advise you on Poland - never been there!

thanks, u let me know more thing.... i searched, that tower is private... and malmo seems doesnt have too many things, so i think i wil jsut stay in stockholm for sweden, and take night bus head to denmark...

actually my travel purpose is taking pic, see historical stuff or unique stuff of the place... but yet have to try to keep budget... if a place is very far, i will probably have to cancel due to my route to next destination...

about the Skagerak and kattegat, my fr just said, get a point to see two sea at once =.=''''
and i searched some pic about it, it doesnt seem very inteesting to me... haha...

OK, we all have different interests! But just in case you change your mind, and since you mention "unique stuff" you can easily arrange to spend a couple of hours in Malmö. There are not many buildings that can rival the Turning Torso when it comes to being 'unique'! When you take the train or bus from Stockholm, you could stop in Malmö and spend a few hours there, and then take the train or bus across the bridge to Copenhagen.
