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'.

    Such a nice hostel! Every night there was a good atmosphere in the lounge, people had beer, played games and laugh. I shared a 6 beds female dorm and It was clean you have space to put your stuff, and we could open the widow if it’s too warm and the shower worked well. But the must is THE LOCATION!! Just in front of a supermarket, next to a “busy” street with all kind of restaurants (Asian,Greek,Italian..) bars, and 5 minutes to the famous colorful street, 10 minutes from city center

    I had a great stay at the generator hostel. Clean rooms, great location (easy for the metro to the airport as well), helpful staff! I would recommend staying here.

    Generator conveniently located in middle of the city. Comfortable bed and shower. Splendid breakfast, all you can eat for approx $12 - for me it's a great deal! Sorry the front desk isn't larger judging from long lines at times. Three elevators located at different sections of the complex. Washer & dryer on the 6th floor - you might need two coins for the dryer. The great advantage is the location, surrounded by cafes and restaurants, not far from the Metro. Outstanding city and hostel.

    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.

    Overall great experience, with a friendly staff and an unbeatable location. The fact that dorm beds each have a lockable crate is the cherry on top of the cake. But the lake of any cooking facility was a real dissapointment! I did see a kitchenette door, but our cards do not open that and it seems to be staff only. What a shame, it would turn that place from a cheap dormitory hotel into a proper guest house where you can meet people!

    Greta hostel, this is the first one I have used. The front desk people were very nice. The location is decent and the room was nice and light albeit swelteringly hot and the windows only open a crack

    Very Good

    It was more of a hotel atmosphere but it was still very chill and clean. The key cards for most of the people in my 6 bed mixed room kept stopped working. I had to walk back down to reception many times so they could reactivate it. Overall, it was clean and in a good location!

    It was my second time but this time hostel was extremely dusty and uncleaned. The location is amazing but otherwise I was a bit disappointed with the cleanliness

    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 hostel is more of a hotel, if you're looking to meet other people or have a good time, stay away from here. Everything is charged extra, even to play Petanque and the kitchen can only be used by "long-term guests" - it just seems that they do not care about the guests experience but only about making the most money possible. I think for people looking for a hotel it could be a good fit, but we will 100% not come back any time!
