Where to stay in Copenhagen: Generator Hostel

Posted on 12. Jan, 2013 by in Denmark, Destinations, Europe Travel, Reviews

You guys know I’m already a big fan of the Generator Hostel chain.

What’s not to like?

Modern buildings, central locations, variety of rooms, great nightlife and cheap dining options. Honestly, it doesn’t get better than that. Including at the Generator Hostel Copenhagen.

Generator Hostel Copenhagen: The Location

View Larger Map

The hostel is located between two of the city’s handiest subway station - Kongens Nytorv and Nørreport‎, on a quiet side street. From there, it’s very easy to reach grocery stores, pharmacies, cafés, bars and my favorite, the gorgeous Roseborg Palace Gardens, just a stone throw’s away.

In all honesty, this is the perfect location. Copenhagen is a very walkable city with a compact center, making it easy and quick to get just about anywhere.

Generator Hostel Copenhagen: The Hostel

The hostel is, unsurprisingly, very modern, spacious and well decorated throughout, with funky pieces of local art here and there. The rooms are spread over 5 floors, with the first floor dedicated to all things bar, wifi, tv and hanging out, with a GIGANTIC common room that overlooks a nice terrace for the warmer months.

One of the things I love about Generator is the whole spirit about it - there are several activities organised throughout the week. While I was there, I had the chance to take part in Hangover Sunday, where popcorn is served and a movie is on (how did they know I loved 50/50?)

Also, I will forever be thankful to Generator for introducing me to Somersby apple cider, perhaps my favorite thing about Denmark now.

Generator Hostel Copenhagen: The Rooms

I was assigned a twin ensuite private room on the 6th floor, with gorgeous views on the neighborhood, and a prime spot for sunsets.

To say I was totally in love with this room is an understatement - I barely ever left on some days! While I love hostel life (especially at Generator), cheap prices and a fun atmosphere, I value my privacy to no end. I can be quite the grumpy person in the morning, and trust me, you do NOT want to be around me then (nor do I want to be around you).

So this private room was just perfect. Silent, calm, modern, spacious, with ample storing space and a spotless bathroom were just what I needed.

The wifi signal was also very good during the day, but not so much at night - however that’s a problem I’ve faced with all hotel/hostels that are particularly large. One connection can only serve so many people!


I would definitely recommend the Generator Hostel Copenhagen, for both solo female travelers, couples or large groups. The hostel really does fit the bill, in just about every way. They offer a wide range of accommodation options to fit every budget. Whatever you choose, you won’t regret it!

Disclaimer: I was a guest of Generator Hostels and Visit Copenhagen. As always, all opinions are my own (and Generator really does rock my socks).

    I have stayed at this hostel also. My family is from Denmark but on my last visit I wanted to stay in the city centre to wander on my own. I love Copenhagen, and this was such a clean, friendly and central hostel! I’m glad you enjoyed it there :)
