Had a couple of inconsiderate roommates, but other than that, was a very good place to stay:)

Generator Hostel was an excellent hostel. It was very clean (which is my first criterion), safe, and in an excellent location. The beds all have lockers underneath them. We also had showers and a toilet in our room. The shower wasn't bad. It worked well. Apparently there are other showers in the hallways that don't work as well, but I didn't try those. The social aspect of this hostel is great. The common area is well used and it is easy to meet people.

This hostel is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The location is perfect (walking distance to main attractions) and was about a 7 minute walking time to Nyhavn. The facilities were really clean and it was quiet in the halls. There was a hair dryer in our ensuite bathroom which was a plus. There is a free walking tour that you can go to. The bar on the 1st floor was great as well as the chill hammocks, comfty couches, and multiple free computers. We had a fantastic and comfy stay!

This place is HUGE (6 floors) so it's hard to meet people. They do have a bar with decent food and drink deals though. It's close to everything so you can walk or even rent a bike for only 100 Krones all day. Reception was kind of rude but I guess that's what you get with these chains. Honestly, I only stayed here because it was the last hostel available with such short notice. Would I stay here again? Probably not. I would check out the more personable hostels down the street. :)

Very nice, clean, fancy hostel! A little pricey, especially on weekends, but also probably one of the nicer hostels I've stayed in. I especially loved the hammocks in the bar :)

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi H, we are super happy that you liked your stay here - the atmosphere and rooms. The hammocks are almost brand new and we like them too! Fun to swing in and relax. We hope to see you back again soon! Team Generator Cph

Room was like a sauna in the morning, needed aircon badly. WAs very difficult to sleep.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi guest, thanks for reviewing us. In Denmark we don't really use aircon, but we do have fans available at our front desk. Your sleep and comfort is super important so we do our best to make you comfortable. Cheers, Team Generator Cph

Probably my favorite hostel I've ever stayed in. Just wish it was a bit cheaper! Perfect for traveling on your own. Beds have privacy screens, there are luggage lockers under the beds, and all rooms are ensuites. There is a bar in the hostel and plenty of hang out areas, along with a computer. Free walking tour was so convenient and amazing! Definitely recommend both of them. I learned a ton. I didn't try the breakfast cause it was expensive and I heard it's not great. also charge for luggage

Hi G, wow, we are so happy to be your favorite hostel, that really is great. We do have a very cozy common area where guests can hang out at the bar, play a few games, relax with a coffee or watch some TV. But once all the socializing has been done, our guests want comfort, and our rooms offer that. There are even lamps and plug sockets on all beds. Our breakfast is actually offered at a discount during check-in, plus its all you can eat. We are happy with what we offer. Team Generator Cph

I have to say the staff isn't as well informed as I get to know in other hostels.

I really liked it here, it is right near the centre, without being in the noisy area, and overall it was good value. The breakfast was nice, but not worth it when there are various supermarkets nearby and a 7eleven on every corner. There were lockers in dorms, but you have to bring or buy your own lock, so I risked it and was fine, but if you are security conscious you definitely need to think about a padlock. Free computers and wifi were all bonuses, and showers were nice and clean and hot :)

Dear Guest, happy to hear you liked your stay, the location, and value for money. Breakfast is good value too if you want a sit down breakfast and loots of variety :) We recommend you lock up your things in a shared dorm, better to be safe but it is ofcourse up to you! Cheers and hope to see you next time, Team Generator Cph

My stay at Generator was hugely overpriced and on top of that my reservation did not include breakfast. I could have stayed at higher class hotels with their daily cleaning service and ammenities that include breakfast for the price I paid to stay in Generator Hostel... HOSTEL! Very disappointed.

Hi R, thank you for staying with us, we are sad to hear that the hostel vibe is not to your liking. Our super common area is packed with fun things to do, space to meet new people while traveling, a bar with happy hours, daily events and a terrace for outside seating. As a hostel we are proud to have these things to offer our guests to make their stay a fun one. Team Generator Cph

One of the best hostels I have been. Very big common area, restaurat and bar, nice enviromental music depending on time (including DJ in saturday night), lots of people. Check-in was slow, there was a queue that didn't move. Not so cheap but it is worth it, perfect for a weekend. Bed linen are included.

It's the best hostel I've ever been, the reception, restaurant and bar area are big and pretty, a lot of people to know in the place, clean and they have a big lockers to save your things besides the cubicles under the beds. I really think they deserve a 10!

Having stayed at quite a few hostels, Generator hostel was definitely of the higher standard. Everything seemed new and clean and the staff was helpful to answer any questions I had during my stay. I had a rather unfortunate first night but it felt good to have people at reception, including a security guard, to handle the situation, which they did well. The hostel is of the pricier kind but I think the standard holds up to this, and Denmark just is a more expensive country.

room is very dirty. and expensive

Hi JL, thank you for your review. It is always difficult to know who your sharing buddies will be in an 8 person mixed dorm room, but our reception team are available 24 hours a day, every day. They are there to help in anyway they can, and this includes requests for a room to be cleaned if needed. We hope that this will not stop you from returning, maybe next time have the comfort of a private room. Team Generator Cph

A hostel who charge you extra for luggage storage. How nice is that... Other than that, great location and helpful staff.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi G, thank you for your review. It is true that there is a small charge to rent a locker to store your bags upon early arrival or check out, but the lockers are 100% secure and are insured. Security of our guests belongings are of high concern for us here. Hopefully a discounted breakfast buffet, double happy hours ever day, or free daily events can add to value given. We hope that you will consider staying with us again. Team Generator Cph

We had a very pleasant stay, it was just what we needed for our mini-break to Copenhagen, and the location was brilliant and easy to get to.
