    Amazing location, young atmosphere and very modern facilities!”

    Our stay was great, however, the beginning wasn't good enough, as the welcome the staff member gave us wasn't the best. Cards to open the room weren't working, so we had to go back to reception so we can enter the room, and later we got working cards. Also, one of the windows was broken so we could close it completely so noise came in through it. We ask the staff if it could be fixed and if not if we could have a new room, and the solution was to use some tape to hold both windows, so we couldn't open any of them... We ended up getting used to the noise and opening the windows during the day to get fresh air. But not everything was negative. Beds were quite comfortable. Breakfast is great, with a wide range of food to choose from so you don't even need to repeat. Facilities were almost new, modern and functional. The atmosphere was so nice, with lots of people from different parts of the world, and the bar is amazing with happy hour.

    Excellent Location, Friendly Staff , would be nice to get some chairs or seating arrangement in room”

    I frequenly visit Berlin and most of the times I stay at this hostel. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. No soap or shampoo provided inside showers. There is a bar and cafe down strais which is great to hang around with other travelers. p.s. I would recommend solo female travellers to get female only rooms. If you end up in mixed dorm, that too alone with some prevert man...things can go wrong. I had an unfortunate situation of man trying to force him self on me and than assualting me...hotel staff was great in handling issue but no help to reporr him to police as no CCTV in hallways. Regardsless, it was not hostels fault..these incidents can happen anywhere and i will be back to thia hostel again soon.

    We didn't spend much time in the hostel as we were busy exploring the city but we enjoyed our short stay (3D 2N). Perfect location; public transports (tram/bus/metro) are super near and it made our exploring super convenient! The room was squeaky clean, the staffs were friendly and helpful. Had minor issue with the washer/dyer but all was good. I have never stayed in a hostel before, but I would definitely recommend Generator Hostel to my friends! Danke!

    Location of this hotel was perfect. So central 10 minutes to walk to the Brandenburg gate. Internet was really good and fast. Laundry was good but took ages only two machines for the whole building. Food in the cafe was yum and cheap.

    Vibrant Hostel at Berlin's Main Hub”

    Of walking distance to major attractions, comfortable room, friendly staff

    The Generator franchise is extremely welcoming to tourists. Its young and vibrant atmosphere makes it the best choice for fellow travellers to rest and meet new travel partners along the way. The beds are comfortable, and come with individual bedside lightings and individual electrical sockets. Each bed is also allocated a large storage box (big enough to fit a 28" luggage). Just remember to bring your own lock, towel and electrical adapter! Additionally, the hostel is conveniently located right by Oranienburg Strasse station, and is also in close vicinity to popular attractions (of walking distance to a few). It is also close to various pubs and restaurants, where you can try authentic German beer, sausages and pork knuckles at affordable prices.
