Great but very pricey for a hostel Jun 23, 2017
Stayed here for a total of 3 nights. The best aspect is the location -- smack in town.

On the first night, I stayed alone in a Standard Double Room. The 2 beds were single beds arranged side-by-side with one pillow and one towel provided on each bed. The room was equipped with a heater (which I didn't use). Both room and bathroom were small. There was body soap provided in a dispenser behind the shower curtain but no hand soap or shampoo (not surprising for a hostel). Didn't expect to see a hairdryer in a hostel room, but it was there - so a positive. Price paid: USD 129.

Check out time is 10am and I made it just in time. The locker storages were full, so the front desk lady helpfully allowed me to store my bags in their office as our Contiki tour manager (TM) hasn't arrived to check us in our rooms.

I came back to the hostel at 5pm, met up with my Contiki TM who gave me a keycard for my room. At first, the keycard didn't work so I had to go back to the lobby to get the card re-programmed. By then, my 3 roommates have already arrived and I was relegated to upper bunk No. 1 (the only bed left). The room itself is nice and spacious - the shower room, sink and toilet are separated from one another which is a smart idea when 4 people are sharing one room. There are bag storages under the bottom bunks. There is a plug and a bed lamp on top of every bed. Towels weren't provided for quadruple rooms; however, they were available for rent.

The Contiki included dinner on 24 June - chicken, couscous and soup were delicious.

Had breakfast at the hostel on 25 and 26 June - both days there were vast selections of cold cuts, cheese, bread and juice. The only downside were the fruits - they were obviously the canned type.

Wifi signal have been strong and consistent in all areas - the lobby, the hangout areas, the dining area, the rooms and even right in front of the hostel while waiting for the bus!

The check-in employees were helpful and spoke perfect English.

Thanks for congratulating me everyone :D

@Horscheck: Yes, part of the reason is because I booked Generator Copenhagen right on check-in day whereas Radisson Blu Stockholm was booked 1 week in advance.

@ellechic: Cool, what a coincidence! I didn't expect to see several people on TB who have been on the Scandinavia Contiki.

congrats on the feature.

I stayed there when I did Scandinavia with Contiki, too! the 4-bed dorm was definitely spacious. - I think I may have even stayed in the same room as you, too! Haha...

Social gathering point Jul 24, 2013
Generator is a social gathering point for both locals tourists in Copenhagen (many of whom are traveling alone) making it a great place to meet new people. It's incredibly easy to strike up a casual conversation with anyone as most people in there are looking to connect with someone. Even if you're staying at a different hostel, make sure you visit Generator (check out their Lounge Bar) when you're near the city centre. Their Pink Lady shots alone are worth the trip but if that doesn’t suit your palate then I’ve got two words for you: Free WI-FI.
