I've stayed here with 4 other friends who travelled from Istanbul and I arrived from London on different day and we all checked out on the same day. Hostel made a mistake when my friends arrived a day before me and put us in different rooms however, they were quick to help out to change their room when I've arrived...

I recently stayed here for 2 nights with 3 of my friends while we attended a concert in Copenhagen. It is a very modern and hip hostel and I must say the staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. It’s in a very central location, easy to reach from the airport as it’s only a short walk from the Kongens...

Very clean, excellent location, rooftop terrace, bar and entertainment area with pool tables. Very satisfied with this place. Slightly more space in the rooms would be welcomed. A bit expensive for a hostel at 30 euro for a dorm bed.

The Generator combines hotel services wrapped in a youth hostel exterior for a price that can be cheaper than couch-surfing! Clean spaces and bed sheets with quality bunk beds and a spacious locker for each bed. The common areas are pretty neat and inviting to spend some time meeting people and have some fun after walking a few dozens of...

Perfect spot for young people, families and groups of friends. We stayed there as a couple together with 3 friends. We would definitely recommend this hostel and a trip to Copenhagen in general. We will come back somewhen in the near future.

Stayed here with a friend for 2 nights just before Xmas. This was a very good modern hostel in the centre of Copenhagen. The room had bunk beds, but big lockable boxes to store your items (remember a padlock!) and a electric plug in each bed. Rooms were clean, and we got fresh linen for the beds each night. The...

I´ve stayed at Generator Hostel in Copenhagen and Stockholm a few times, and I´ve always been happy with my stay. They are well located, clean, friendly and relatively cheap. I know I will stay there again.

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.
