Very good place, near to subway/underground, in he city center, a lot comun areas with different games. You can meet a lot of people, most of them young but not all of them. The music is very nice in the commun area. The stuff is very kind. Just enjoy.

This hostel would be gread for young groups of friends with no budget issues. The location was excellent, there'should a train straight from the airport. No food or drink allowed - you can'tell bring it in from outside. Drink prices the same as TGI Friday, no cheap booze here! No kitchen facilities. Clean and the staff were helpful and friendly....

As this is my first time staying at a hostel, I don't really have anything to reference, that being said I was pleasantly surprised with Generator. The keycards here (which need to be used to access the elevator) are so incredibly finicky, that we had to get replacements multiple times in a day, every single day. An interesting fact about...

The rooms are clean and utilitarian with bunk beds that have lockable draws underneath. The downstairs has more lockers that you can rent out to store stuff before or after your stay, easy to use and not that expensive. There is also a good, well designed and friendly downstairs area that includes a bar and the rest of the usual...

The hostel was probably the nicest I have ever stayed in! The room was spacious and clean, and the reception area was decorated well. The food in the bar was fabulous and the whole atmosphere was just great. There were different things on each night including live music, games etc. There was a really cool vibe in the hostel as...

Centrally located, easy reach, efficient staff, clean and quiet enough, excellent wifi connection, good breakfast for a hostel. I was in a double room premium and it was ok. In winter the floor is cold and I could not walk barefoot

Good food, beds comfy, nice atmosphere. However if you want to get comfortable on the toilet in your room, you'll be doing it in the dark or waving like a maniac to turn the lights back on. Otherwise all good.

It is more of an hostel, shouldn't be mislead as an hotel. If you want a nice quite night sleep this is not for you. If you want to engage with other people I suppose this is it. The room was always bright and a lot of noise until late hours of the night, music and shouting on the corridors....

By far the best hostel I've ever stayed in in my travels through Europe. The location is perfect right in the city centre. It's clean, bright and has spacious bedrooms.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

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.
