“Great location and good hostel”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is the first time I travelled alone and staying in a hostel. I stayed for 2 nights (Saturday and sunday). I selected female only dorm. Had 6 beds and bathroom and shower was inside the room. When all 6 were there felt bit cramp. But it is fine as long as all are working in different time slots.
No towels, toiletries given. No water heating electric jug or cups are given.
There is storage space to lock in the bags (remember to bring/buy a padlock).

I didnt take breakfast from the hostel, so I do not know much about it. But can get food from many nice pastry shops outside.

Quite near to metro (10 to 15 mins walk), strogate, and all the other attractions. All are in walking distance. Also there were free walking tours leaving from the hostel at 10am and 2pm (to two different places).

I felt quite safe in this hostel.

Absolutely love this Hostel! Stayed for 2 nights there, great location, good and clean rooms, and great value for money. Loved the ambience of the hostel (Very hipster). The staff were super friendly and gave me with a ton of information on the city. Will definitely come back again if I were to ever re-visit Copenhagen!

Great thing to start off with was the 24 hour reception, and knowing there will always be someone to help if needed (a plus if travelling alone).
I stayed in a female only room and found they were a bit cramped but okay for a couple if days. There was always a shower available either in the room or down the hall (never had to use those!).
Affordable bar and food downstairs and good restaurants around.
Free wifi in the rooms, which was strong everywhere. Not much noise either which was surprising for a weekend stay. I would definitely stay again!

I spent 3 nights at Generator Hostel Copenhagen in January 2014 together with my boyfriend. I chose this accomodation because the location of it was just perfectand the price was also one of the best offered (which is very important for Denmark as it is one of the most expensive country). Anyway, for this price I got the best I could get. The only thing I have to mention, it was quiet cold in our room (well, it was the beginning of January - it was cold everywhere =)) But you know, when you are cold the whole day, you crave to come back to the hostel to get some warmth))

Stayed for one night. Hostel is very clean and tidy. Staff was very friendly and had a very nice talk with the Icelandic guy from the reception. They even accepted to change my room, as there were some problems in the first one (due to a guest, not beucase of the hostel). Breakfast doesent worth the money dough, that's why I give just a 4* rating.

Room Tip: have breakfast somewhere else

Dear Stefanutz,
Thanks for reviewing us. Happy you enjoyed your stay, and our friendly staff (sounds like you probably had a chat with Sigthor). As for the breakfast, we think it's a good spread, and excellent value for Copenhagen, but if you have any extra ideas, please feel free to let us know. Hope to see you back here soon.

I like the private rooms you can book which is very unlike a hostel. Although small for two people, the rooms was quite adequate. The bed was like King Size proportions which I was impressed with. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the breakfast selection even for a gluten-free person like myself, I had to ask as usual for my special bread to be toasted. The location was very fairly central which helps but it can be a little noisy outside. It was a good job I brought my ear-plugs with me !

Room Tip: Rooms on the side side a quieter.

Hi Richlaa
Thanks for your review. I'm happy to see that you found your room comfortable, and the breakfast good. As with any other city centre location, there may be noise at times but that just means that you are in the center of it all :) Thanks and hope to see you next time.
