Great location, clean rooms, unfriendly staff
This Generator is pretty huge with lots of rooms. The location is great but the staff were unfriendly and very curt with guests. They seemed to really hate their job so that was a bit offputting, but the rooms were clean and I liked having an ensuite room which I suggest, although it was weird that the sink was in the living area (not with the toilet).

Refused to sign for a Express package
I would say that I had an excellent stay that generator except for I had my Rush Visa sent Express and they refused to sign for it and it delayed my trip by one full day it was quite upsetting. The staff knew I was waiting for it so this was very rude

Stay here...don't play...
Very cool place! It seems like one of the main places...this place is HUGE! NICE set up inside with comfortable pillow seats, live music, pool tables, etc etc. People were SUPER nice. Copenhagen is REALLY nice. Right by one of the main strips in Copenhagen! Love it!

Good value and location
Hostel was comfortable with knowledgable staff. The beds were great as each had two outlets and a light, as well as a box below the bed that could be locked (padlock not included). Was lucky enough to be upgraded from a 12 person to a 6 person dorm. One major complaint would be that the shower/toilet/sink situation was somewhat awkward. Each was separate (which was fine ) except the sink and mirror were in the main room. This was very inconvenient when coming home late and trying to get ready for bed without waking others, as the light could not be turned on. Otherwise it was comfortable and seemed clean. As for the hostel itself, breakfast was adequate (only purchased it once), wifi was fantastic and there was plenty of space for relaxing and hanging out.
