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.

Lovely Weekend in Copenhagen ????

I had a great time In Copenhagen. The city is cool and beautiful, that impressed me so much.

The Generator is a great place, I basically liked everything: our room was so clean, loved the design, the area is central and safe, the bar is huge and the atmosphere is great.

The Staff is lovely, all of them: the small guy with the cap who checked me in, the young girl who provided me nice food suggestions (we’ve been to the Boltens and we also had a Smørrebrød lunch that was great!) and the little girl who smiled at us anytime she see us.
The Bar Staff is also nice - especially Christopher, who had been so kind to us.

I had a wonderful time and I wish I’ll come back some day ????

Thank you for everything! ????

Great hostel in the center of Copenhagen

The hostel has an amazing location, we did not even have to use public transportation as everything was on the walking distance. I loved the common area, they had a lot of table games, great staff, live music, delicious food and overall a very positive and youthful environment. We booked a 6 bed room, sink is in the same room as beds, so if you are staying with people you do not know it might be a bit awkward and also it can wake up people if somebody comes later than others. Another thing that can be easily fixed and I was surprised to see it was not already there was a hairdryer. In most of the places they already have a built-in hairdryer, but at Generator you had to go to the reception and ask for it. In most of the cases people did not return it right after usage, so we had to wait for some time to get our hands on it. If the sink would be in the same room as the toilet or the bathroom, and had a dryer attached to the wall there would be no complaints from my side. Overall, I recommend this hostel

Value hostel

Good value, central location. Stayed in 4 bed room which had its own shared toilet and shower. Hostel very large with huge capacity. Friendly staff. Easy to walk to all main attractions and 5 minute walk from the airport metro stop.
