Generator Copenhagen

Whether you’re looking for elegant Danish design, minimalist Nordic fashion or the ingeniously innovative Scandinavian foodie scene, you’ll find it all in Copenhagen.

Generator Copenhagen is smack-bang in the centre of the city, just off the Kongens Nytorv Square. The hostel is housed in a Philippe Starck development and it's a hub for travellers and locals who are drawn by custom-designed furniture and an expansive bar and café. Inside Generator Copenhagen, Tim Bjorn illustrations, intricate lighting, the large outdoor terrace and pétanque court make it an oasis in the heart of the city.

About

We’ve brought pétanque to Copenhagen. If you don’t play already, fret not; you’ll pick it up in no time. Originating in France, it’s all about trying to hit the jack with your boule. It’s really easy and lots of fun in groups. If pétanque isn't for you, head to the hostel bar – which features one of the biggest terraces in town – and indulge in a cocktail and some tasty snacks.

Happy Hour at the bar everyday from 16:00 to 17:00 and 21:00 to 22:00
