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.

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.

I came here for second time. Bring more friends to visit Copenhagen and Generator here. Everything is great. We especially like the common area with long benches and book shelves. Staff is kind and helpful. The only thing kinda weird, is lockers for luggage storage before check-in or after check-out has started to charge.

The hostel was nice but the common area/bar was not a good place to meet with people.

The hostel is great and the atmosphere amazing. Some of the staff are very nice while others could do a bit more, thank you for the recommandation to da a walinkg tour, it was amazing. The lounge is very comfortable and a nice place to relax and make friends. The breakfast is very good for the price. The food in the lounge could be better and have a bigger choice, It is a bit annoying that groups have the priority over single travelers and therefore one day I could not eat there.

The hostel is in a good location and quite comfortable, although the mattress is a bit noisy. The staff always seemed to try answering all the questions as briefly as possible, not being as helpful as they could, in my opinion. You need a badass padlock for your locker and need to pay to store your luggage there after checking out.

Thanks for staying with us. Our reception is here 24/7 to answer your questions and usually get great feedback. Perhaps you were unlucky and it was very busy... We hope you give us another try next time you are in town :) Team Generator Cph

The staff in the reception was really rude! When i got to my room there was a wet towel in my bed so i asked to change mt room! She did not want to change my room and as a solution she said that she was going to the room and get the towel! The generator charged for the towel as most hostels! And the wifi did not reach the room! Only the lobby!! But the rooms were really good!

We really like the painting on walls and all the decorations, though it's more like a hotel than hostel. The staff are really nice but some in the night shift are not really familiar with the admin system and took us quite a long time to check out. but everything is cool :) Thanks!

I was very pleased with my experience at the Generator Hostel in Copenhagen. I was in a 6 bed female dorm (which are usually very cramped) but this room was actually quite spacious. The beds also offer a decent amount of privacy and each one had an electrical outlet which was convenient. It did get a bit loud at night but it was nothing earplugs couldn't mask. The location was also GREAT -- close to Nyhavn and Rosenborg Castle. I would recommend this hostel.

Dear N, thanks for staying with us.We are pleased you enjoyed your female dorm and your stay here :) Our central location makes it very handy to explore the city. Cheers and see you next time! Team Generator Cph

This hostel was OK. It had more of an industrial, pump-em-out feel to it than that of really caring about the customer experience. The linens in the rooms had been changed but still gross and full of hairs, which was disconcerting. The bathrooms were kind of clean. The downstairs bar is good but overpriced. Good chill out areas though, pool table and nice computers. Rooms had lockers but besides that I canceled the second night and went to the other hostel in Copenhagen.

Thanks for staying with us. We may be a larger size hostel but we keep it personal. We are here 24/7 to help you out, give you the ins and outs of the city... anything you need :) As for the linen, this is changed and the bed made -duvet, pillow and all (except for the bottom sheet which is left for you to put on). If anything is not as it should be come see us and we will make it right. Hope you swing by us again next time and give us another try. Cheers, Team Generator Cph

Very clean with all the facilities you would need, with the exception of a kitchen. That is supplemented by food service in the bar area. Good food if not a little overpriced based on what I found wandering around elsewhere. The size of the hostel makes it better suited to people travelling in pairs or a group. Difficult to find other solo travellers. Overall a good experience. My only critique would be: On my last night had trouble sleeping even with ear plugs on the 4 floor do to music volume.

Hi B, thanks for staying with us. Sounds like you had a good stay all in all. We have a bar and cafe where you can pick up nice meals at good prices, plus happy hours and events which are good for meeting fellow guests. As for the noise, we will take that on board and look into it, we know that your sleep in super important too. Hope to see you back next time :) Team Generator Cph
