  • Great location - right next to train stations. Looks like a newly constructed building and definitely has a simple, clean, interior. Small toilet and shower. I'm only 5'6" and trouble fitting in.

  • Great location directly across from the train station. Hotel like, not very friendly for solo travelers. Bathroom is incredibly tiny for no apparent reason.

  • The bathrooms were a bit small, but manageable. It was nice that every bed had its own outlet and light, but it would be nice if there were curtains on the beds so that you don't wake up to the lights/people comming in and turning on the lights.

  • Rooms were nice except for ultra tiny bathrooms and showers. It is not a good place to meet people except for those you are roomed with. It is just like a big chain hotel except with four times the people. Nevertheless I got plenty of sleep here

  • I stayed there in mid June 2014 for two nights. Then I visited hostels in Copenhagen a day after. Then I found how great was the Generator. It was renovated very modern. The beds had convenient electricity plug, UBS plug, and LED light and a small cover at the side of the bed which makes your bed a little more private if you want to play with your mobile in the bed . The location is very close to central station and there are many restaurant open till very late night.
