Hostelworld says

Generator Hostel Copenhagen is in a great central location for exploring the city on foot. This hostel features large, solid under-bed lockers and privacy screens on the bunks and all of their rooms are ensuite. The frequently praised staff are friendly and helpful and are 'eager to provide good advice about where to go, what to eat, metro times, etc', according to Hostelworld guests, who tell us their clean rooms are comparable to 'staying at a hotel room with a hostel atmosphere'.

    The check in time is a bit late but it's indicated as such. We were told by two people at reception that storage lockers can be booked for 24 hours but if they're stored longer, we can pay additional cost upon collection. After paying for 24 hours, we were told that this is not the case and would have to go to central station to get longer. Lockers would be emptied after 24 hours passed.

    Great hostel, with a large lively bar, nice sized rooms and a great central location. The only downside to having a bar that is open to the general public is that you miss out on the cosy backpacker atmosphere that you find in resident-only hostel bars, but that’s not the end of the world. All in all, Generator operates mighty fine hostels around the world (I stayed in their Miami branch last year) and I certainly recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable and fun place to stay.

    Great location and amazing staff! It’s more of a hotel than a hostel. Kind of hard for solo travellers to meet people other than those in their room. The bar and restaurant is open to the public, not just guests. Very vibrant atmosphere in the bar, but would be nice if they had a dedicated area for guests to meet each-other. The staff are so friendly and helpful. I had an issue with a man who was staying in my room and they fixed it up immediately by moving me and the other girls in the room

    A big hostel in a PERFECT location in the city, can walk from anywhere or easily get the metro. The cleanliness was lacking in times but I imagine that’s because it’s so busy. The room was an OK size, but when everyone was up and getting ready is felt cramped. The bar was busy, the majority of which being locals so if were hoping to meet new people there I would say it might be hard. Overall a good hostel, would recommend !

    Solo female traveler with a layover in Copenhagen. Fit my needs perfectly. A cheap/safe/clean place to sleep and conveniently located to walk around the city.

    I stayed in Generator Hostel for 4 nights. It seems a HOTEL instead of a HOSTEL, it worked for me. I never knew if people who went to the bar and the common area stayed at the Hostel but they were too fancy. I preferred to go out instead of stayed at the hostel chatting with people because I did not like the atmosphere. On the other hand, the room was very good and clean. The location is perfect because everything is a walk distance.

    Definitely it’s like a hotel not a hostel. There is no hostel culture. The common area is connected to a public bar which is annoying. Compared to many hostel I have stayed before, this one is just quite normal. The facility is good and clean, but hostel should have its own atmosphere.

    The only thing going for this place is the location. Every single bathroom I went into smelt and was dirty. The room smelt terrible. You can’t access the kitchen unless you are a “long term guest”. Half the front desk girls were happy to help, the other half made me feel like an inconvenience for asking a simple question. They deactivate the key fob before the 10:00am check out time, which makes no sense. Overall, a terrible experience and I could not wait to get out of there.

    Rude staff. Wifi doesn't work, there is no cell coverage so you can't even use your phone. Constant noises from outside, unable to sleep. Soap dispenser was broken in toilet. No toilet paper in toilet. They make you pay to leave luggage.
