Central Copenhagen stay for design lovers and wallet watchers, with cool Scandinavian interiors and a petanque bar

The Lowdown

In a six-story building just off Kongens Nytorv, Generator Copenhagen is a style steal in the heart of the Danish capital. The interiors feel classically Scandinavian (blond woods and white-on-white minimalism in the guestrooms) and hip and homey thanks to the mismatched textures and furnishings in the busy public spaces. The guestrooms range from private single or double rooms to shared spaces with eight bunkbeds. All have a simple, modern style, with soft white duvets and pillows, full-length mirrors, and lock-up storage units; premium private rooms come with towels, desks and chairs, clothes hanging units and free toiletries, snacks, water and two-for-one drink vouchers. All guests have access to private showers, and a small number of en suite guestrooms are available. On the dining front, a classic continental breakfast is available each morning, and hot snacks and drinks are available at the indoor/outdoor petanque bar and terrace from noon until 10 p.m.

In the Area

Join the cultural cognoscenti in savoring Copenhagen’s rich landscape of art, design, history and music. Listen to some tunes at the annual Copenhagen Jazz Festival, or head over to the Koncerthuset, designed by Jean Nouvel, to see chamber music performances or pop concerts. Catch a free performance in the foyer at the Royal Danish Theatre, or the hotel can arrange dinner at Salt followed by a boat transfer to the Royal Opera. Delve below the surface at the new and otherworldly Blue Planet aquarium, and then visit the Arctic Ring, Copenhagen’s new zoo, devoted to polar bears, North Atlantic birds and seals.

The rooms were not big enough. So so disgusting. They are not able to clean such a huge hostel in a reasonable time. They really need to start thinking about that. If you need some place clean this is not the place.They had one thing that I've never seen anywhere - if you arrive before check-in or leave after check-out there is NO luggage room where to put your thins, I'm not even mentioning your most valuable stuff. The only option is for you to rent a loker per hour - because the city wasn't expensive enough. This, besides the lack of cleaning was the thing that I hated the most.

I was staying in the hostel for four nights. Nice location, but very noisy nights. The night club downstairs is open until 2 AM, and it is impossible to sleep.

Contacted reception and only thing they could offer, were ear plugs. Not so happy.

Great location by being Just a five minute walk from the train station and in the heart of the city. Rooms were clean and modern, en-suite bathroom was a major plus as well. Many bars just a block away as well as high end shopping. Everything very walk able, within 15 minutes at the most. My only gripe is the bar is open to outside customers which made it hard to interact with fellow travelers but on the positive side one can meet locals.
They two daily walking tours that meet in the lobby daily. I did the architecture tour and really enjoyed it. Walking back from the tour once can hit new town which is only a 5-7 minute walk from the hostel.

Good experience.

I have been to another Generator hostel before, and I have to say that they never disappoint. Good value for the money! and I would like to highlight the excellent location, the majority of the attractions are walking-distance.
