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'.

    This was my first stay in a hostel and boy was it a shock by the time I got to my next hostel... this place is above and beyond. Great facilities and great, modern, clean rooms. Spotless but still homey. There is a bar and an ice bar but you can’t hear much noise in the rooms. Great location! I am so impressed, it had an upscale hotel feel rather than a hostel.

    This place is huge and in the best location for sightseeing. The staff were super helpful and allowed my friends and I to stay in the same room despite separate bookings. There is a big bar with loads of activities. Room has decent sized storage and comfy beds. You have to pay for lockers if you need to store baggage after check out which is my only negative. However, would stay here again.

    The hostel is located in the very centre of the city and, from there, it's very easy to move around Copenhagen by bike or metro. Nice staff at the reception, ok breakfast buffet for only 55 DKK if you buy it on the day of the check in and simple but clean rooms. Just the sink inside the room does not make sense at all but it's not a big deal. Recommended if you don't want to spend much on your accommoda in Copenhagen. I guess it's among the cheapest hostels with good ratings in the city centre.

    Great location and good value considering how expensive accommodation can be here. Nice looking room but very uncomfortable beds and not the cleanest place. The area was quiet however the hostel itself was very noisy!

    Would benefit enormously from providing a kitchen to guests. While some of the facilities are ok, others are less so. For example, the simple addition of a liquid soap dispenser in the showers and small tray or shelf to put stuff like shampoo would improve it. The under-bed lockers are well designed, but space is tight in the rooms compared to other hostels. The hostel is more aimed at a young party crowd than travelers that need a decent night's sleep and somewhere to cook and chill.

    Good location and walkable to the attractions. The staff is helpful, except on my last night the male host working overnight was unpleasant and rude. Cleaning is not frequent. After my roommates left, their beds and the room was not cleaned for 2 days. And the public toilet on the same floor did not get cleaned during my entire stay. This is not the Generator Hostel experience I am used to and I stayed in Dublin, Paris and Barcelona locations. Sadly, I would suggest staying at another hostel.

    The staff was not friendly at all, I didn't feel welcomed, and when I had questions, I felt as if they were doing me a favor. The girl had a really bad, prideful and not friendly attitude. I suggest you train your staff on how to be better with people.

    Due to COVID my booking to Denmark, and thus this hostel, that I had planned for late March got cancelled. Fair enough, no one can do anything about that. What I do expect however is a refund, something I have yet to receive over 5 months later. I get there will be a backlog and a waiting period but it's just ridiculous at this point, haven't heard from them in months on the situation.
