when i first arrived, exhausted, they could not find my reservation. I had made my reservation (and paid in full) through Agoda, Eventually told me, the reservation came under "bookings.com" "that is why we could not find it" The place was clean and I liked the locking drawer under the bed. But the first night, a couple who were sharing...

Stayed here for one night in December as a solo traveller and loved it. Great location near a train station, supermarket, and tourist sites. The staff were friendly and helpful and reception was open 24 hours for any issues. My room was clean and comfortable. The bar downstairs was lots of fun with hammocks, games, etc - perfect for meeting...

The hostel is clean and very well located in the city, the bar and the chill room are cool. But the staff wasn't very welcoming and our room was just over the bar so impossible to sleep before midnight and we were waking up at 6:00.

Incredible experience in one of Europe's most beautiful cities. I travelled alone to Copenhagen and the Generator was the perfect place to stay. Extremely affordable, clean, ideally located and a brilliant place to socialise.

We spent two days here and everything went perfect. Our room was little, but clean and warm. The common room was full of people and entrateinments. The saff was really kind and they gave us a lot of information. Come here.

Very good location, nice breakfast. Poor heating. We stayed in a private room, which was not cleaned for 3 days. We had to ask for new clean towels. Noisy during weekend(not easy to sleep). No value for the money we paid.

Dear 151pant, thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear you was not satisfied with your stay. We do not clean private rooms for short stays unless requested in our 24 hour open reception - this is also written on the housekeeping card in the room and on the back of the door. Thanks for staying with us,...

The location is very good. The common area is very cozy, stylish and enjoyable. The breakfast was ok, nothing special but not terrible. The dinner food was ok as well (I had taco). The rooms are really minimalist and a bit boring.

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

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.
