Great place to party, but don't expect to sleep
I am a middle-aged solo traveler who needed a budget option for 4 nights in Copenhagen in late November 2022. My trip was somewhat last minute so options were very limited and Copenhagen is a very expensive city. After much hesitation I booked a Thursday to Monday stay at Generator, as it was the only place within my budget. Although I haven't stayed at a hostel in over a decade I had a provide room so I figured I could tolerate it for 4 nights. It was a mistake. There is a bar/night club literally INSIDE the hostel. On Friday and Saturday nights the noise is INTOLERABLE. You can barely hear yourself think; the walls are literally shaking from the noise. It lasts until about 2 am. I actually had to go for a walk because I was feeling like a prisoner in my room. If you are a young person who is going to party hard in Copenhagen for a weekend, then this is the place for you. But I cannot recommend it for any other type of traveler; at least not for a weekend stay (on Thursday the noise was tolerable and on Sunday it was quiet). The shame is that otherwise the hostel was totally fine and what I expected for a 2-star accommodation. But when I book a room, I expect to be able to sleep. If that can't happen because someone decided to put a night club INSIDE the hotel, it cancels out all the positives. Also, a small but annoying detail: they don't offer complimentary baggage storage on your check-out day. You have to rent a locker. I thought that was tacky.

Perfect budget stay.
If you’re looking for a good budget option for Copenhagen then this place is perfect. First of all the staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious enough for a hostel and the shower was very nice. As for the rest of the place it has a fantastic bar area where you could watch all the sports and soak up a great atmosphere, especially at weekends. Happy hour prices were also very good. The fact that it was also so close to all the major things worth seeing was a bonus. All in all for the money a great stay. Would definitely recommend.

An awful experience.
My stay at this hotel/hostel was very bad. Even though I got my own private room with a Queen bed and private bath, I did not enjoy staying there. Although the hostel in general looked good, clean and fairly modern, this did not help me to feel comfortable here. The elevators are super old, slow, crappy and dirty inside, plus, stinky. The floors where the rooms were located did not seem clean either. It felt dusty and a little bit outdated. Once I checked a public restroom on my floor, and it looked pretty bad too. The room I got was very small, its design was basic, maybe a little bit stylish, but everything looked clean and good there. One of the biggest things I hated was no closet to put/hang my clothes. There were a few hangers on the wall, but they were not enough to hang many pieces of clothing. The bed was super hard and uncomfortable, the pillows were awful and uncomfortable too. The biggest thing I hated was no air conditioner in my room! There was a little fan in the room, but its power was not enough to cool down the room. The bathroom in my room was tiny. There was no actual shower stall, the water went just on the floor, and the floor all over bathroom was wet all the time. The sink in the bathroom was super small, I had a very hard time using it to wash my hands or clean my teeth. The bathroom amenities were of an okay quality and smelled fine, but I still used my own. Another issue with my room was bad soundproofing. Wi-Fi was working pretty slow.

Cozy & Convenient
Really good experience. Everyone stays here, from full family reunions to solo travelers. Very convenient option both price and location. The staff is amazing, especially the gentleman that runs the tasty breakfast service. Very clean Hostel. People from around the world make great entertainment. Please research “hostel life” before staying. It can be a bit loud if you are a lite sleeper, bring ear plugs anytime you stay in Hostels.
