      Great location as alwaysGenerator Barcelona is a 7-10min walk from the metro. Although the neighborhood seems dark and quiet at night, it’s extremely safe. There’s also a lot of nearby 24hr convenience stores near the area. The rooms were cleaned regularly, and so were the bathrooms. The staff was nice and accommodating. Tried asking for a bottom bunk for my shared room, and they gladly gave me one (this makes all the difference to me). My only issue is that the elevator can be slow sometimes - can be troublesome of you’re rushing for something. But overall, Generator Hostels never seems to fail me. It’s always my go-to hostel whenever I go to Europe, and Generator Barcelona kept that reputation.

      To many little kids running around unsupervised”

      There were to many little kids running around yelling, and jumping on furniture, at 10pm, seemingly unsupervised. Bathrooms were very cramped and no soap in the shower, which other Generators provide. Also the sound system in the bar kept cutting out and no one did anything about it. Very annoying.

      Took my 10 yr old niece for 3 days and she loved the cool decor, games room and funky lounge. We had a Deluxe Twin Room and I realise this is a hostel, but it was very noisy. Security are very good at keeping the peace, but the walls are very thin. Great restaurant, close to good bus routes and clean and tidy throughout. Staff are friendly and it's a great way to see Barcelona at a reasonable price.

      Barcelona stay”

      The hostel was clean and modern. It was a nice room and bathroom. Close enough to the Metro.

      We enjoyed the stay although found the staff not very friendly. We also put the do not disturb on our door so our room would not get serviced, but they decided to service the room anyway, which happend twice. The first time they moved a lot of our personal belongings around the room which we did not like. The lifts were very slow and only worked half the time. Positives were the bar staff were friendly, the food was great. There are many eateries around the hostel.

At breakfast for 6.50 there is all u need, good coffee too. Easy check in, check out . Subway is a 5 min walk . Will return there. Kids ( 12 and 14 ) enjoyed the atmosphere too.

      good location & staff, but check-out time is 10AM.”

      location, breakfast, clean

      Located in 5 mins walk to metro station "Diagonal" and 5 mins walk to Casa Mila. The front desk staff can speak fluent English (which is pretty good in Spain). The breakfast costs 4 or 6.5 euro (2 kinds to select) and is worth price. Room is overall clean, we stay in 6 mixed dorm with shower and toilet. The door of the shower room is broken and makes noise every time when open and close, which is quite annoying especially when roommates come back late (in 4-5 am) or get up early. Moreover, the check-out time is 10 AM and the luggage storage requires extra payment.

      French train strikes!!”

      I booked the Generator Barcelona for 4 of us travelling. I paid for our accommodation in advance. Sadly due to the strikes on French railways that May, we didn't make it to Barcelona, had to stay in Lyon the night ( we were forced to eat nice cheese & drink wine!!).. Bur also had to pay for another hotel. Generator Barcelona refused to refund our money saying we paid on a 'no refund'. SNCF ( the train company), also refused to refund us... ( sob sob). Thankfully Agoda have been kind enough to offer us a 'free credit' equivalent to the amount to use on another Agoda booking. Excellent customer service from them all along. Can't say the Same for Generator Barcelona!

      Review is based on room with no balcony Room 615.”

      Overall the hotel has an interesting concept. Location is not too bad. Supermarket across the road. Excellent cafe round the corners. 10 mins walk bring you the the main luxury shopping street. Hotel is clean. Reason why I won't recommend to get the room with no balcony is, firstly, the room is small if you have 2 large size luggage. No Tv ( if you are those that watch TV before you sleep or prefer some noisy in the room while you do other things). The toilet size is decent but ONLY the showering corner is so small that even my petite wife struggle to shower without hitting the walls. The water pressure is weak. No racks or space to place your shampoos and soap. This hotel is a mixture of hotel/hostel. So do lower your expectation if you do choose to stay in this hotel and please choose room with balcony. Hopefully it will be better.
