Cool, young hotel in a central area”

Desgin, convenience, staff

Newish hostel in the Mitte area. Very convenient to S and U Bahn and walking distance to a lot of attractions (Museum Island, Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate etc.). Oranienburger Strasse, where Generator is located attracts a lot of young tourists on trashy weekenders and there are lots of bars and bad restaurants catering to that crowd. We didn't find that scene very enjoyable compared to other districts in Berlin, but the area is still great if you are only staying for a few days and just want to stay central. The quirky/colourful/industrial design of the hostel is really appealing and the staff are young, energetic and mostly very friendly and helpful. Everything is pretty new but the beds were quite hard and not comfortable. The showers in bathrooms were great though. The cafe food was decent and the bar has a nice social vibe. For the level of comfort, Generator seemed somewhat overpriced compared to other budget accommodation in Berlin, but this might be typical of the Mitte area. Overall, Generator has a nice atmosphere and is pretty good for a couple of days stay.

Fair”

Cleanliness, safety, staffs

First the advantages. Clean. Modern. The vibe. Fourth-floor dorm rooms seem to be free of noise from downstairs. Double shower room for 8-men dorm. The Bads. The breakfast expensive as there's little selections and they charge you for 5.5 euros (you get for 4.5 euros only if you decide it on the first day of arrival). Especially I need to mention the coffee tastes like piss because they don't use coffee beans. Instead it's some Nescafé instant coffee. Imagine the whole package for 5.5 euros. Other hostels provide way better values. Second, my 8-men dorm was cramped so no chairs and tables. I have never seen a dorm room so small that when everyone lay out their luggage or backpacks there's hardly any more space. The bunk beds are meticulously arranged to maximize the area use so they are next to each other, which gives you headaches every time you return to dorm or get a shower as all your clothes had to be thrown on the bed. The ugly. They have bars and restaurants on the ground floor. It seems convenient. But they charge you at a premium. Imagine a burger at 8.5 euros. If everything, try this hostel if you feel like it. On paper, it is a good choice. I still think it's a good choice. But you've got some compromises. Among them bad breakfasts and small cramped rooms. I personally will avoid Generator next time in Berlin (and in other cities where Generator operates. )

If you are looking for a hostel stay, then Generator Berlin Mitte is a good choice. Each bunk bed has a power supply and a draw that can be locked with a padlock. Each dormitory of beds has a shared toilet and shower. It is in a good location, with many local restaurants and a few bars nearby, Staff were pleasant.

Our stay in Generator Hostel was simply enjoyable! Staff are really friendly while rooms are typical hostel style while clean and tidy. There are also lots of choices for food nearby. I would recommend for those who are visiting Berlin at the first time joining their walking tour at 10am everyday which is free of charge and takes around 3 hours.

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.

Best hostel”

This hostel was shockingly great. The room (4 bed dormitory) was kind of smal but if you book this kind of room you are not expecting to dance there or anything so it was no problem at all. The room and the whole hostel was very clean and modern. There is even a cool bar. If you not feeling like sightseeing anymore it is really enjoyable to just chill in the room or bar where you could meet new great people which is another thing I would like to point out. The people were great. I mean stuff was really helpful and nice and the also another travelres. Maybe I was lucky but I got the best group of roommates that made my trip unforgettable. But to mention also some cons the bed is little short for me but the problem actually is I am tall so I have problem anywhere. Also everything was good as there was a hole in the bed just to fit my feet there. I have seen another 4 bed dormitory room and the bed there didnt have mentiond hole. If I will go to Berlin again this is the place to stay!

Brilliant value hostel ”

Super reasonable, clean room that stayed well heated in sub temperatures. We were 4 friends and had booked a private room (which is tiny) with 4 beds across 2 bunks. Ensuite was clean and the shower was hot. Reception offers towels (for a fee) although the website states they are included for a private room booking. Staff are on hand 24/7 for any question from logistics, transport to recommendations and are super helpful, patient and friendly. Great location with a tram stop right outside, S Bahn, 10 min walk to Friedrichstrasse. Loads of restaurants, coffee shops, bars and interesting stores within walking distance. Would definitely stay again if I'm swinging by Berlin!

Cleanliness, location, peace and quiet

Stayed here for three days and it was a very good stay. Stayed in one of the 8 bed shared dormitories and got free breakfast too because I had booked it online, also got free WiFi in the room which was a major bonus. Beds were clean and comfortable, and bathroom and shower were very clean and well maintained. Staff were helpful and friendly. Only complaint I would have is that the elevator was not working at the time I arrived so I had to go up four floors by stairs, and that was quite a hassle with luggage. The location of this hostel is excellent, just one station away from Friedrichstrasse station which is roughly the center of Berlin. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone!

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.

Good but no parking”

Warning: there is no longer a parking lot next to this hostel! It is blocked off because a hotel is going to be built there. That's why we booked this hostel. So just keep that in mind if you have a car. [We parked a ways away in the parking garage. It was near the Radisson parking around the corner from the rental car place.] We booked the private twin room the day before because it was half off. It was good, but would not have been worth the original price only because you could get a nice hotel room for that. The staff was nice and the hostel itself was big. The bar next door was "meh." It's very crowded on Saturday night but I think just because of the convenience. The cocktails aren't great. The good news is it's within walking distance to Museum Island.
