Booking.com, Hotels.com, and Expedia.dk are usually used in Denmark. Tripadvisor can give you an overview of which booking sites have offers for the different hotels. Note that it is more expensive to book directly with the hotel. You are also likely to be offered hotel options at a very competitive price when you book your flight.
You can plan travelling within Copenhagen and find connections from possible hotels to the venue on: http://www.rejseplanen.dk/
The main chain of Danish Youth Hostels is: http://www.danhostel.dk/content/us. There are common dormrooms, but you can also book a family room (including private bathroom) with up to 4, 6 or 8 beds.
Danhostel Copenhagen City is recommended (and closer to the conference venue). Danhostel Copenhagen Amager is near the Metro so it is possible to stay there if you prefer to stay in a green area.
The official Tourist site also links to other hostels: http://www.visitcopenhagen.com/book-your-stay/hostels

Hostels rent towels and bed linens if you do not bring your own.
