2/10 Poor

Great place to party, but don't expect to sleep
I am a middle-aged solo traveler who needed a budget option for 4 nights in Copenhagen in late November 2022. My trip was somewhat last minute so options were very limited and Copenhagen is a very expensive city. After much hesitation I booked a Thursday to Monday stay at Generator, as it was the only place within my budget. Although I haven't stayed at a hostel in over a decade I had a provide room so I figured I could tolerate it for 4 nights. It was a mistake. There is a bar/night club literally INSIDE the hostel. On Friday and Saturday nights the noise is INTOLERABLE. You can barely hear yourself think; the walls are literally shaking from the noise. It lasts until about 2 am. I actually had to go for a walk because I was feeling like a prisoner in my room. If you are a young person who is going to party hard in Copenhagen for a weekend, then this is the place for you. But I cannot recommend it for any other type of traveler; at least not for a weekend stay (on Thursday the noise was tolerable and on Sunday it was quiet). The shame is that otherwise the hostel was totally fine and what I expected for a 2-star accommodation. But when I book a room, I expect to be able to sleep. If that can't happen because someone decided to put a night club INSIDE the hotel, it cancels out all the positives. Also, a small but annoying detail: they don't offer complimentary baggage storage on your check-out day. You have to rent a locker. I thought that was tacky.

8/10 Very good

Perfect budget stay.
If you’re looking for a good budget option for Copenhagen then this place is perfect. First of all the staff are really friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious enough for a hostel and the shower was very nice. As for the rest of the place it has a fantastic bar area where you could watch all the sports and soak up a great atmosphere, especially at weekends. Happy hour prices were also very good. The fact that it was also so close to all the major things worth seeing was a bonus. All in all for the money a great stay. Would definitely recommend.

10/10 Exceptional

This was such a nice place to stay during our 19 hour layover in Copenhagen! It was just a few minutes walk away from the metro station to drop off our bags in our room and then go explore the city by foot! The room was small as pictured but that was no problem at all for us and it was very clean! We enjoyed the ease with this stay.
