I stayed here at a 6bed female room for 6 nights and enjoyed it a lot. We had a private bathroom and toilet here and it was cleaned by the staff everyday. The room was spacious and well-designed, with a personal lamp and a tiny table for every bunk. The bed mattress weren't that comfortable though. Wonderful location and friendly...

Generator is one of the best places to stay in CPH. Right in the center and close to all the main touristic attractions, bars and shops. The employees are super nice, friendly and helpful in any way possible. And their parties are legendary! I recommend 100% Generator even if you have to spend 1 night.

Very modern, clean hostel in a good location near Nyhavn. Beds were hostel-narrow but very comfortable. The bar/communal area is very large with a petanque court, shuffleboard, lounge area, etc. A good Scandinavian buffet breakfast. You can rent bicycles from there among other amenities. Helpful staff.

Stayed here for a night at an 8 bed mixed dorm. In general they tried to make the place clean I guess, considering there's eight of you in a room, bathroom's pretty clean. I like that you have sort of a cabinet, just bring your lock. They also provide combination lockers at the reception area for a price, depending on...

It’s centrally located and not expensive. Many attractions of the city are within a walking distance. Rooms are small and simple but with comfortable beds. The communal areas: bar, dinning area, chill-out area and outdoor terrace are very well designed, very cozy and comfortable although they get very crowded and noisy sometimes especially on Friday and Saturday nights. The continental...

Generator Hostels are always a pleasure to stay in! They are so unique with their concept and interior you immediately feel it's been a good decision to stay there. They also offer a lot of tips and tricks, and are always up to help you out where needed. The location was great, very central yet not rowdy. I would definitely...

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
