When I am a bit older I will definitely come back with my friends or girlfriend or who ever as this looked like it would be fun for around 18-25 Year olds and I was only 15 when I visited here but there was pool tables, sit off areas, computers, dart boards in a bar not to mention friendly people...

I was a litttle aprehensive about staying in a hostel, but was really pleasantly surpsised. We stayed in a private room and it might as well have been a hotel room. Nice bar downstairs, great location for getting to things - and generally helpful staff. We were in a room on the 6th floor, facing the back - and there...

I stayed in an 8-bed dorm, which had two individual showers and a separate toilet. The showers were in good condition with several hooks for towels. A shelf for toiletries would have been useful. The toilet was in good condition but didn't smell very clean (same with restrooms in reception). The bed was comfortable and each bed had a built-...

Stayed here with a friend in a 6-beds room, expected a more expensive charge, so were pleasantly surprised with what we had to pay. The location is awesome, although that's not the only good side. Rooms are neat, as well as corridors. We had a slight trouble with the heating (it was off) and there was no hot water for...

Generator is an awsome hostel. Clean, safe, nice staff, perfect location in the heart of Copenhagen. The rooms are simple style, but the other areas of the hostel is cool decorated with colourfull and stylish furnituers, very inviting for being social with friends, or meeting new! Also has a nice terrace for a sunny day:-) I highly reccomend this hostel!

Was a bit apprehensive about staying at a hostel but it turned out to be a great experience. Met loads of great people, room was nice with two shower rooms. I didnt try the food there but the service at the bar was excellent and there was always something happening in the common area. Wifi was excellent.

The room was nice, wifi worked well, but almost the facilities was paid, for example the user of lockers in the day of your departure. It is common for traveller to let their baggage in the hostel without paying, but it didn't happen in this hostel.

I enjoyed the nights there, people are always ready to help you. Renting a bike is a very good option to run the city. There are a lot of options of rooms, so you can choose the bes one for you, if you are going alone or with friends.

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
