Reviewed 18 November 2015

Easily accessible from the airport both by public transportation and by taxi, this hotel is walking distance from the stroet and 'all that happens in copenhagen center'. Organized, clean and with friendly staff, a great choice if you don't need the frills and just need the convenience. Parks, supermarket, cafes all a stone throw away

Well situated hostel, very clean and rooms nice and clean bed linen etc. Only criticism would be that drinks at the hotel bar were very expensive- moreso even than local bars. Still on the whole very good.

I shared a room with 5 other people, and it was nice. The only downside was that our shower had very hot water, but on every floor (I think) there are communal showers and toilets, so I used those showers. I was on the 5th floor and had no noise complaints. There are 2 elevators and 3 staircases, which is...

I really enjoyed my stay at the Generator. I stayed in a six bed room and opted for breakfast. Found the selection at breakfast quite limited for the price, so if I was going again, I'd probably find somewhere to eat in the city. Breakfast was very social though! Rooms were clean and generally I found it quiet enough for...

The Generator has a fun and funky feel to it with it's reception and bar/dining area having quirky different areas to it. From hammocks to sofas and thrones! The bedrooms are very basic which goes with the hostel description, my colleague and myself had a twin room which was in fact a double bed with two single duvets...but it was...

This is a nice hostel, we stayed in 2x private rooms (a triple and a twin) which had good showers and clean comfy sheets. The lobby area is quite cool with a bar and terrace and hammocks for chilling. The staff were really nice and really helpful. There is also a free (you are expected to tip) walking tour which...

I liked this place. It was very clean, I would say it's closer to a hotel than a hostel. The lobby and cafe/bar area has cool decor and a good layout.

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.
