Profile: Copenhagen City Centre

Profile: Copenhagen City Centre

Copenhagen City Centre is home to Copenhagen’s most historic neighborhoods, a place of narrow streets, cosmopolitan boutiques, boats drifting down picturesque canals, and 1st-class restaurants dishing up decadent smørrebrød sandwiches. SMK—The National Gallery of Denmark is Denmark’s largest art museum, with an impressive Matisse collection. Stop by bustling Torvehallerne market, a local favorite, to pick up rare teas and Danish delicacies.

See the city by hopping on one of the blue Netto-Boats, which offer multi-lingual tours and cruises down the Børsgraven. The tours take in many of Copenhagen’s most noteworthy sites, including the Little Mermaid statue and Amalienborg Palace.

8.0.Very Good.
  • 10.0.Exceptional

    I went to Copenhagen for a quick getaway with a friend. Our stay at The Generator far exceeded expectations of a hostel. The room we had was well laid out, clean and comfortable. The bathroom is tiny but works well. The only downfall we found was the wet floor from showering but we had an extra towel to use as a mat so we weren't tracking water back and forth. The noise in the room was good all but one night when the street outside was packed with partiers. The lounge area was very nice and had plenty of space to relax and/or socialize and the food we had there was excellent. The location was perfect for us to walk to most of the sights around the city and close to the train/metro/buses for farther excursions. We found ourselves heading down to the Nyhavn area each evening just to watch the scenery.

    Location is accessible. Property is clean. But it was from the bar vibrates thru our bedroom on the 2nd floor.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    My first stay in a hostel. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Food was much better than I expected, both breakfast buffet and dinner options. Lots of comfortable common space, inside and out. Convenient location. Walking distance to many tourist attractions! Stayed in 6-bed dorm and it was pretty good but the nature of a dorm, is, of course, that guests come and go at all different times of the day and night so it was hard to get a solid night’s sleep. No one’s fault, just the way it is. For the same reasons, the cleaning staff can really only do a cursory clean between individual changeovers so the room rarely would have the chance for a thorough clean. Understandable but don’t expect too much. All in all, a very pleasant stay with terrific staff at a very reasonable rate in a terrific location.

    Central location with grocery store right next door; 6-person shared room with shower is great and have a big bin to lock your belongings (bring a bigger lock or thin bike lock cable to lock it); Back patio facing room gets loud and worse on Friday/Saturday night when people talk very loud and/or get drunk though.

    Great deal

    Centrally located in Copenhagen. Rooms are comfortable. Staff are helpful and friendly. Food isn’t delicious. Hotel quality on hostel budget.

  • 4.0.Fair


    The hostel was ok, good location, staff not always the friendliest, and the most disappointing were the mattresses conditions. You can seriously feel the springs with your hands. I stayed at the Generator in Stockholm and you would even guess its the same company as they are completely different. The one in Stockholm is way better.
