A great place to stay. during the week the prices are very cheap per night but on Fridays and weekends the cost increases a lot. Therefore is a place with fantastic environment and very helpful staff. Everyday there is a cleaning service that is excellent and is center located. You can go by foot everywhere in the town.

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. Our room was simple but comfortable and had a nice bathroom. The hostel is in a good location, easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and main sights. It's not...

The hostel was very clean, well kept, and offered many amenities. It was great to have such a central place to crash. If you're looking for a more traditional hostel environment though, this one isn't quite as personable.

Great hostel, great staff, great location and a great breakfast! If you are searching a nice hotel with a low price, this is your place to be! Low fares and still located in the city centre! It's also a really tidy hotel, nothing to say about that!

I stayed at Generator with 2 friends and booked a private ensuite room this November and were very happy with our stay. As we arrived early we decided to use the hostel storage lockers, you do have to pay for these separately (about £4 for 6 hours) which is something I havent experienced in a hostel before but they are...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while visiting the city. We slept in a private room with our own bathroom - cosy room, comfortable bed, very nice and clean.

My friend and I stayed here back in April 2015. It's centrally-located (just a block or two from Nyhavn and Stroget) and is jam-packed with fun amenities like pool tables and a bar. We stayed in a private room that was much smaller than we anticipated and hot, hot, hot (even with the windows open), but I guess that's the...

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.
