I booked Generator because a friend of mine in Stockholm really enjoyed the stay. I have to say the Stockholm one was very clean, tidy and spacious however this place is worse than a Motel 6. My first room their was lipstick or some red stain on my pillow case and the lock was broken and the second one 4...

Liked the location very much, felt very secure. Room facilities (showers and toilet) were done very well. Would recommend and stay again. Value was good, Copenhagen is just not cheap. Most tourist spots are walkable distance, if not public transit is nearby and easy.

It was situated at a central location close to lots of cafes, boutiques, bars, restaurants etc. New facilities, exceptionally clean. The breakfast and cleaning staff were very amiable. This stay would've been perfect were it not for an awkward incident I experienced while I was sitting at the seating area near the reception where I happened to overhear a conversation...

Everything in Copenhagen is hioer expensive but this place had the best offer and great standard. Very nice breakfast option, party in the evening (but no noise in the room), firendly stuff. We were happy to be there! The only thing that waa missing in our room was a table or sth similar to put our things on.

We decided to stay here as a cheaper option when having a weekend away in Copenhagen. Me and my boyfriend booked a private double room. The room is simple but clean and has everything that you need. The bed is very, very comfortable and shower is great water strength. The location is absolutely amazing, walking distance to everything. The bar...

I traveled solo and stayed at the Generator for two nights The hostel is very clean and well presented. My 6 person female dorm was clean, perfectly formed and surprisingly spacious. The dorm had a separate shower and toilet - the shower was very powerful and was consistent (always hot water). The bed and pillow were very comfortable and I...

This is a big, busy hostel suited to groups as it's a bit large and anonymous if you're a solo traveller. Lounge and common areas are mostly devoted to bar, eating area and games rooms. More quiet chill out areas would be nice. It's clean and provides good budget accommodation. But kind of geared to to getting guests to spend...

Despite being at the "upper end" of the age bracket of patrons here, this is a fantastic place to stay as well as chill and read in-between sight seeing. Well worth considering for your stay in Copenhagen

Neighbourhood 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.
