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 perfet hostel if you want to get to know the city and people at the same time! It’s close to the city center and to all importants points. The hostel organize city walks for free and you can rent a bike for 100 dkk the 6 hours. Also, they ahve a open to public bar so it’s perfecto to come back after exploring copenhague and to have a beer while you make new friends!

    Fantastic place - I absolutely loved my stay here. The staff were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the city. I had no trouble making friends at the bar downstairs, nor in my dorm - I even made a couple of friends in the laundry room! The hostel is really well located and everything you could want to see is within walking distance. Would highly recommend it for solo travellers.

    Stayed in 8 bed dorm. Very cosy rooms with large lockers and comfortable bunk beds, freshly washed sheets and duvet covers. Our room came with 2 toilet/shower cubicles in our room. Hostel staff very friendly and good to go to for recommendations of things to do in Copenhagen. Room was clean and good atmosphere to hostel with bar/cafe attached on floor 1. Ice bar on ground floor. Great location and 10 minute walk from Nyhavn, an area definitely worth checking out. No kitchen however in hostel :((

    In the small print which I missed the Generator bill you for the entire stay upfront which is annoying unlike other hostel world sites so not a great start. The location is solid, close to everything important. The facilities are modern and plenty of games on offer in bar area however, people tend to keep to themselves. They charge for almost everything including locker storage. Staff are hands down the best part of this place along with the pub crawls (only good way of meeting people).

    This large hostel has good facilities and the location is excellent. The food and drinks in the bar area is generally good value. Having a 24 hour reception was helpful. We found having the lockers under the beds in the dorms frustrating, as it has to be pulled out the whole way to open it, which means a bit of negotiating with your fellow dorm roomers to get in and out! Also, a lot of noise filters up from the street at night. Overall, would stay again.

    Stayed for 3 nights at this hostel in the 6 bed dorm. Overall fine experience. Pros: very clean, good rooms with ensuite shower and toilet. Great location. Cons: the WiFi didn’t work at all in my room unless you stood in the door, which was very surprising for such a large, professional hostel. Also no kitchen facilities. There’s a big bar area but no place to cook your own food, which is a shame because food in Copenhagen is so expensive

    Everything was great except for the lack of ventilation. The hallway and rooms get extremely stuffy as there is no fan and the window only opens slightly.
