This is a fantastic place to stay. The common areas are the best of any hostel I've stayed at in Europe and even during the week there were always a lot of people to meet downstairs at the bar. The room lockers are spacious as well. Also a great location near Nyhavn. Cannot recommend this hostel highly enough!
It was a clean hostel, in a central location with good lockers in the room. The staff was really friendly and gave us even an upgrade for a better room :) However the hostel wasn't that cozy and the bar area was a bit too smelly during the day..
Really loved my stay at this hostel - staff were very friendly and helpful, great breakfast, clean and comfortable. I had booked a 6 bed dorm but was put into a 4 bed dorm, so very nice! Ensuite but separate shower and toilet in room, both were very clean. I was in a room directly above the bar and balcony which could get noisy at night, but the window's are very good and provide a lot of sound reduction. Only complaint was my pillow - much too small and uncomfortable!
We are from Taiwan. we stayed in double twin room, it's very clean, there's a window, so we can enjoy sunshine in the morning, all the facilities are really good, the breakfast is nice too, and the staffs are also really kind. We love this hostel.
This place was great. Only problem is that their are not enough laundry machines for the amour of people who stay here. So don't wait until the last minute to do laundry.
Loved this hostel. Great atmosphere. Really liked that the bathrooms and showers were in the rooms. Plenty of amenities. Karaoke in the bar was a lot of fun.
Great location, quite big so quite individualistic but still nice hostel. showers ensuite with dorm rooms were great. only thing I hated was the grandfather who stayed in my dormroom. Eh?
In general the hostel is quite nice, but it might need to be more clean in the rooms. It seems they just change the bedline. The mattresses are quite old and you can feel the springs.
Quite pricey but so is everything in copenhagen. Great location. Rent bikes! Nice accomodation and a good bar vibe at night. I would definitely recommend.

Overall very nice facilitated, however the design of the facilities especially the separateness of toilet, sink and bath room created a little bit of inconveniences.
Perfect location, close to the places shops, cafes, sights in Copenhagen. A very big hostel (hotel-like). Staff are usually impersonal (been twice already), plus teach them to raise their heads once in a while and not focus too much on the computer screen (probably their phones too) esp at the reception - they need to see when people are standing there waiting. Good bar atmosphere - Alessandro is great! Second time I got there my sheets were kinda dirty, but reception was too busy.
Great hostel! Clearly designed for travelers by travelers. It has everything you need plus a great staff and a fun bar to meet people in. I will be staying here again!
Nice hostel, good value for money. The rooms/bathrooms are clean, the stuff is friendly.
Great location and facilities, as you'd expect from Generator. Staff seemed indifferent and felt a litte robotic - a smile goes a long way in lifting the spirits of travellers who may have just finished a long trip to reach the hostel. Staff were efficient, though. Bar and common rooms were great. Breakfast not included.
huge hostel many people nice breakfast live music
My Generator Hostel Copenhagen was fantastic! Very affordable price for my one night stay, centrally located in Copenhagen city and the bar area was awesome!
Everything was really good except for the fact that the bar closed early and that it was a little bit expensive, but the hostel is very good. Lockers under the beds, light and plugs for each bed, security in different doors, elevators, internet in the rooms, bar, receptionists were polite. etc.
Best place to stay in CPH. It seems expensive but relative to copenhagen it is the cheapest but there is no sacrifice of quality. It is in a fantastic location, rooms are lovely, staff are brilliant - though they seem to be short staffed so queues build up at busy times and it can be chaotic trying to check out/in. The only downside or weakness is they dont provide enough lockers for the luggage. So it is almost a mob scene trying to get lockers. That said said still a brillaint hostel :D
The hostel was great and rooms were clean, although I got the impression that they weren't cleaned daily. The shower had hair in the plug hole for a couple of days and I had to remove it myself. I took this as a sign that no cleaners check the room over on a daily basis and I think this could be improved for a more comfortable stay. Reception were very helpful and it was nice to have the benefit of it 24/7. I liked the storage boxes underneath the beds, meaning less things lying around.
