The place is nice and very well kept. Clean and quiet, perhaps the bathroom could have been cleaned a bit better but nothing to make me say I will not go or complaint. Very central and I didnt have to use the train at all.

We stayed last month to visit the Christmas markets and Tivoli. It was the cheapest hotel we could find and our first time in a hostel. It was much more cleaner and modern than we was expecting. Our room was quite noisy and the hotel was quite busy. The rooms are basic but okay for a few days. We had...

I'm not an experienced traveller, I've probably stayed in about 4 or 5 hostels before but this was BY FAR the best. I visited Copenhagen with my boyfriend so stayed in a private double room with a private bathroom. I chose this place based on it being far cheaper than anywhere else that offered a private bathroom and also based...

The location of Generator Hostel Copenhagen is nice. Quite closed to the city center metro station, and new harbor. The interior design is really fashion!! Make travelers feel comfortable, relaxed, and enjoyable. Of course, the staff here are friendly and helpful as I experienced.

Stayed in a 6 person room for 3 nights and had a great stay. The hostel was easy to find once I got off the train from the airport and the location made it easy to walk around and explore Copenhagen.

Generator was pretty cozy in copenhagen. Our dorm was empty we were only ones there and there were own toilet and shower in the room! The lounge and bar was very cool and lots of people of all age were chilling there every day and night. And u can stay and sleep at the comftorbale sofas before ur flight leaves.

First time in my life in a hostel, so I can not compare to other experiences. The room was nice, clean, comfortable. It's good to have lockers to leave luggage (even if it is expensive, for me) and the bar is very nice, crowded of happy people. The location is great, so close to Nyhavn, Kongens Nytorv and Nørreport Station,...

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.
