Great place but like everywhere in Scandinavia your wallet is going to take a beating.

Although on the whole the stay at this hostel was good. The place itself was huge and had plenty of built in areas to chill out and a cool bar area. We did feel that some of the staff came across as grumpy when we checked in, but on the whole most of them were friendly and informative. The charging of extras was such as locker space was all fine and well except that there was not enough room to accommodate everyone at check out. My friends and I would recommend this hostel again.

Dear Yi, thanks for your review. We do charge for the products we offer as we are a business. Our basic room price solely covers a bed in an en suite dormitory, bed linen, free wifi, free computers, and 24 hours open reception. Should you need any additional items, as for example a towel or padlock, can these be rented/bough in the previous mentioned reception. You will of cause need to pay for this unless you brough your own, then you just use that free of charge. Thanks, Team Generator Cph.

My only issue was that at night there wasn't a good place to hang out and drink your own beer or eat your own food or call someone. The whole place aside from the rooms becomes a loud bar even on Sunday nights. Would have liked a place to chill out in a quieter environment.

I had a good and warm staying there. Always a clean place, VERY near the main touristic attractions, and offer a lot of facilities in one place that you may need (lockers, bikes, pub...)

I enjoyed my stay here and it was very professionally run, the only issue I had was that it was more like a hotel than a hostel. The building is massive and there are heaps of groups there of all ages and sizes. I saw many familys and older travelers too but it was a good in the chill out area. There is no kitchen and they don't allow you to bring outside food and drinks but everyone does. The bar wasn't very cheap and the food was pricey but it's Copenhagen. Buy your drinks from the supermarket

Dear M, thank you for your review! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! We are a hostel but we do not have any age limit - everyone are welcome here. We have many rooms, both shared dormitories as well as private double and family rooms so we have guests in all age groups staying with us. If you are looking for fellow travelers to share a fun night out or some Copenhagen sightseeing, our bar is always a good place to start. We hope to see you again in the future :)

Generally nothing really to fault, but the universal adapters sold at the front desk don't fit UK 3-pin plugs very well and it would have been nice to have a wider range of drinks, especially ciders, at the bar. However, as we were travelling in a group of four it was a pleasant surprise to have been moved from a large mixed dorm into a room for just the four of us.

Very nice staff and facilities. 9 free computers. They want to make money on selling cooked food I cannot afford. They do not have a kitchen or even a microwave. Crowded rooms. Physically very nice lobby bar area.

A hostel in sleeping arrangement only. A budget hotel with a popular bar/cafe in the lobby is a better description. I've stayed at other Generator locations and they're always consistent.

Really enjoyed my stay. Only minor downside was one of the cleaners telling us we needed to check out and after a brief panic it turned out she was wrong. She also did it on a separate occasion with someone else. Other than that the staff were great especially the bar staff and also the English bloke behind the desk who gave us awesome recommendations

Different from other hostels because it is so huge, but still a great place with a nice downstairs bar area and loads of facilities.

The hostel was fully equipped, individual lockers, individual lamps, individual sockets, etc. It was clean and had a great atmosphere. It was walking distance from the metro which takes you to the airport. The only thing is that it wasn't cheap and on top of that they charged for lockers to keep your baggage, when the luggage room is typically free of charge.
