Where: The Generator Copenhagen
Verdict: I stayed here as part of a group and while huge hostels are not usually my first preference I really enjoyed the Generator Copenhagen, much more than its counterpart in London. Like in the UK, I was in a 4 bed dorm however this one was really spacious and had large luggage lockers.
There was an ensuite shower and a separate toilet, both of which were clean. If you’re not in a private dorm there are communal showers on each level. Each bed had its own reading light and power point which is always appreciated. Free reliable wifi was available.
I was only in Copenhagen a couple of days and therefore tried not to waste any time in the hostel so unfortunately I don’t have a lot to report on in regards to the facilities for this one. There seemed to be a nice common area though and there was a decent sized bar downstairs that seemed cool with a nice outdoor patio area also. The hostel itself is brightly coloured and seriously modern yet simple in design as is the Scandinavian way.
Breakfast was included since we were part of a tour and it was fairly decent for a continental selection however I don’t believe all rates come with breakfast so double check this before booking.
Location: I felt the location was the best feature of the Generator and is worth staying here solely based on this. It was only about 5 minutes walk to the nearest metro station and the famous Nyhavn area with all of its charismatic boats was about the same distance away. It was also roughly 10 minutes walk to the main shopping area of town. A bonus of the property too is that the lovely Kings Gardens are pretty much directly behind the hostel.
Price: Beds start from 150 KR (20 EUR or 29 AUD) for a 6 or 8 bed dorm which I feel is extremely reasonable for Denmark. There are also 3 & 4 bed private rooms available in addition to doubles. Breakfast may or may not be included depending on room type. Prices may change depending on season and day of the week.
