“lovely room to live”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Front desk is quite nice for introduction. There are clean towel/Bed/bathroom and hair dryer in each room. the internet is not convenience cos it is only available in public area. The hostel locate in the downtown, and nearest station "Norresport" which takes about 15 minutes could take all s-train. During these five days, I live in a lovely 6-bed dormitory and met friends from different countries. Conclude that Generator is a recommended hostel of Copenhagen for me.

Stayed at this hostel for 3 nights - 3rd night was unplanned - due to an airport strike
The place is nice and well run, clean, modern with friendly staff
Location is fantastic right in the middle of town next to nyhavn and konges nyturv - walkable to all the sights and easily reachable by public transport
It is a bit pricey - but then again everything in Scandinavia is :(

I was pleasantly surprised by my stay at the Generator Hostel in Copenhagen! Rooms were comfortable and impeccably clean. The downstairs area for hanging out was fun, comfortable, and a nice place to relax between being out on the town. Staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. Location is AWESOME - easy walk to shopping, tourist sights, places to eat, and transit, but still quiet enough to get a decent night's sleep.

The design is very sleek and modern, the facilities are very clean and comfortable, and the location is also great being close to a major train station and many restaurants.
Several lifts are there making it easier to get to rooms. and the restaurant/coffe shop is very nice and offers free wifi.

We stayed at Generator Hostel during our vacations in Copenhaguen (CPH) in August 2013. The best thing about the Hostel is the really good localization, near the heart of the city and really close to almost "all you can do" in the city.

However, there are few things that we didn´t like at all. You can't bring your own food or drinks (they say that is because of the hygiene Danish laws, even though you buy your own stuff in Denmark), which is really important since CPH is really expensive for most tourists. In addition, the organization of the rooms is really bad: on the one hand, the WC and the shower are separate (obviously). But on the other hand, you have in the same room with the beds, the washbasin so you can't wash your teeth without disturbing your room-mates since you have to switch on the lights of the whole room.

Finally, the suppliers of the toilet paper/cleaning hours of the rooms (non-officialy) work like this: if you're inside, you're not gonna have your room clean until next day (if you aren't in, of course. Is that ok with Danish hygienic laws?). Also, the hostel does not have its own kitchen but it has a really good/beautiful bar...with danish prices and a really bad WIFI.

Definitly, in our opinion the hostel is "cooler" than useful. Probably we won't come back.

Good central location with funky decor. Lively bar area.

No kitchen area. Expensive to stay in, but so is anywhere in Copenhagen in fairness. Over priced breakfast. I didn"t have it and didn"t see anything to make me want to change my mind either.

Staff were polite, but over worked. Hostel in general seems interested only in making money.

Small rooms, but with all the essentials.

It"s a beautiful city and well worth a visit, I"m just not sure I"D stay here again. However, if you"re in your twenties and want to go drinking, clubbing, then this may well be the place for you.

Good value rooms, great service and great atmosphere. If you are looking for a central place to stay on a budget the Generator ticks all the boxes. Not your usual hostel... smart, modern and clean rooms. Good free WiFi
and a great bar with plenty going on.
