This property was conveniently located and had strong wifi, good spacious bar equipped with pool tables and other games, TV & food (kitchen closed around 8:30/9:00 PM). Our double room was small with a limited hanger space & a small table. Private bathroom was also small with a curtain dividing a tiny sink & shower with a weak water pressure....

This hostel is in the best location, you can walk to a ton of places. The bar downstairs is fun and I met a lot of other travelers. A friend and I stayed in a private room, which had to twin beds and a private bathroom. Since we were only there for a night it worked out perfect. The only...

It is a good trip. But I have some suggestions. It would be even better to have a curtain on the bed of mixed dorms. The check out time is a little early. I think it is better to after 12:00 am. Thats all.

In the middle of the tourist party zone, you can't escape that. However, the hostel very strictly seems to enforce the no-alc rule for the rooms which results in the hostel being clean. It would be good to offer a hot water kettle and cups for the room - up on request with a security deposit if necessary.

Stayed here for a work trip. The hostel was clean, with good services and friendly staff. The road outside the hostel was very noisy all night and the rooms good get very hot, so having the window open was unavoidable. Great if you're a backpacker, not so much if you need to concentrate and work the next day.

As a rule, I hate hostels, always have... And I say this as a preface to the following: Generator may have changed my mind about the hostel experience. I was fortunate enough to get good roommates, and meet some fun people, but this place has everything going for it: It's spotlessly clean, centrally located, walking tours from reception, cheap bar,...

First time staying in a hostel, alone. I stayed in a 6 room female dormitory. As soon as I walked up to the reception desk, I knew I was in for a great stay! The gentleman at the reception desk was so friendly, informative and professional. He reviewed wifi, breakfast, attractions, check in/out, events etc with me and walking away...

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.
