Overview

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.

For a hostel this one is pretty damn good! Stayed one night in a private twin room with my friend and one night in a dorm after she left where I quickly made 5 new friends :) Happy hour at bar is good. Towel should be included in price & fans in room needed in the summer heat. Other than that very clean and friendly staff, Joe at Reception made my time there great as he made every effort to help me out :D
Another things - lockers should be cheaper/have card facilities to keep up with the rest of the city which is basically all card friendly even the walking tours! :)

Warning - only for backpackers!

Do you want to wake up at 2 am from drunk crowds chanting downstairs: ”SHOW ME THE DI**!!” repeatedly? If not, don’t stay here.

Forget about air condition, forget about a clean shower that doesn’t completely flood the bathroom floor. The location is okay but everything else is truly terrible for anyone other than drunk backpackers.

Not ideal

Our room was very hot, noisy and we could smell cigarette smoke drifting up from below. This meant it was not an enjoyable stay which is a shame. The receptionist didn't seem to know the area when we asked for recommendations either.

The hostel is located in a good position, the place is pretty clean and the staff was super kind! I will surely choose it again if I travel back to Copenhagen! Price were very cheap compared to the other hotels around !
