This is one of the coolest cities in Europe. People can sometimes seem to be a little bit cold, but Danes are great if just take some time, drink some beers. Christiania is nice, even if you don't smoke weed! Copenhagen is best during summer though!
You should visit Tivoli Gardens.
Christiania is absolutely sh*t. If you are not drug addicted avoid going there. Go to Nationalmuseet instead. It's free and definitely one of the best museums ever seen around the world. Supermarkets are not more expensive than in Italy. Two complete days are more than enough for Copenhagen.

Overall I found this city to be pretty unfriendly. You kind of get the impression that they wish you would just go home. My friend and I got yelled at and called names for buying all of the pizza in the deli. Go figure.
Christiania!!! Pusher street is not what is used to be (summer 2004 now) but still very fun and easy to find weed!
Visit Christiania, it's changed a lot but still has a great vibe.
Copenhagen - what a grooooooooovy city! Sex in the city!!! ;) And tequila in the tequilabar!
Copenhagen is the cultural and financial capital of Denmark and is also home to the Danish Royal Family. It is divided into the city center and several surrounding suburbs.
If you are looking for a Copenhagen hostel, you might want to try finding one in the city center because that is where most of the attractions are situated.
If you do not want to stay in the center of the city, Osterbro and Norrebro are very nice, more residential neighborhoods. Living up to the reputation of Scandinavian countries, Copenhagen hostels are relatively expensive, but you can also expect them to be clean and welcoming with very helpful staff. If you are traveling here in summer, make sure to book well in advance since rooms tend to fill up quickly.
If you end up staying at a city center area Copenhagen hostel, getting around by foot is the way to go. You will find everything within easy walking distance and get to enjoy beautiful buildings and lots of shopping while you're getting to your destinations. Do not forget to stroll along the harbor to meet the famous little mermaid.
If you aren't big on walking, there's a comprehensive public transport system which can take you from your hostel to anywhere in the city that you want. If you have an extra day, take a bus or train across the Oresund bridge to get to neighboring Malmo where you can eat some famous Swedish Kottbulla.
