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

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

Hi A, what a great review!! We are super happy that you had the best time here! A big thank you, and we hope you come back for more good times! 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

Staff didn't explain things right and the restrooms are really dirty, smelling like urine.

Just your typical chain hostel. Rooms are well equipped but sterile, generally everything is pretty clean. Bar and common floor are large and also well appointed but the noise and number of people makes it impossible to meet anyone. Too large, too many groups, staff treat you like cattle and zero atmosphere. Fine if your in a group but stay away as solo traveler.

Hi M, thanks for staying with us. Our rooms are equipped with you, our guest, in mind - small shelves, bedlights, personal powerpoints, underbed lockers plus ensuite showers and toilets. It sounds like it was very busy when you stayed, the bar can get busy with alot of guests and events. Usually it is loads of fun - perhaps you were just unlucky? We hope you check us out again next time. Cheers, Team Generator Cph

A very fun and lively place that somehow manages to stay quiet in the rooms. Highly recommend.

A big, well organized hostel! I really recommend to stay at this hostel. The location is perfect: A parallel street have lots of cafes (for example TASTE, serves cakes, coffee, sandwich and omelettes, very delicious) and you are near shopping street and bars. Another really advantage of this hostel is, that every bed has a big box under the bed, where you can put your stuff (laptop, backpack,..) and you can locked it!!

The rooms and common areas are really nice and well desgined, my only comment is with there not being a kitchen cooking isn't an option and it can be quite expensive to buy meals in Copenghagen, but this is definitely one of the best hostel breakfasts offered and is value for money, especially compared to the prices to buy food in Denmark!

Dear H, thank you for your review and comments. We have a restaurant and cafe on site, and therefore do not offer a kitchen for guest to use. We have a nice picnic bench area on our terrace, where our guests are able to eat their own food. We are a hostel, but we aim to offer more than just a bed to our guests. Team Generator Cph

This is a big hostel. When we arrived the room was not ready and when it was, it was not really cleaned up. There were used towels still hanging on the back of the door. The check-in staff was cordial but I feel lacked warmth and no smiles. Gives me a feel like a posh hotel reception. The place was great with good vibes, especially with the bar area. Nice room.

Hi W, thank you for leaving a review. However, it is not good to hear that your room was not prepared as it should be. Our reception team can always help with situations like this, so we hope that our guests will always go to them for help. They are open 24 hours a day.
