I stayed in a private room for 2 with my mother. The hostel is a good 5 minutes walk from the Metro (Colonel Fabien) and 30 minutes away from the tourist destinations in Paris. It is near to groceries too (one downstairs and one a good 5 minutes walk across the street). The room is huge which is a plus since it is Paris after all. The rooms are clean and well-maintained. Although, we found it weird that there was no shared kitchen which is normal in hostels. But overall our stay with Generator Paris Hostel is great, definitely recommended!

Great location, visible coming out of subway!”
As a solo female traveler, it gave me great peace of mind when coming home after dark being able to just walk straight across the street from the subway from Colonel Fabian (my Google maps told me the station before it so it made me walk through a sketchy street the first time, but thankfully it was daytime, but still..). So convenient. They didn't have enough towels the first night and I had to dry off using clothes LOL it sucked, but when I told my sob story the next day, a guy at the desk was nice and made sure I got one once laundry was done. Cool atmosphere, would stay again!

Best hostel, great amenities”
This has been, by far, the best hostel I've stayed in in Paris. I was a little worried that an 8 people bedroom would be too much to handle as I'm accustomed to staying at 3 to 4 people rooms, but it was fine! I like that there are in-room storage to keep my valuables in and there are extra showers and bathrooms outside the rooms so I'm not waiting for my roommates to finish. Plus, it's very clean. Really awesome, highly recommend!

More like a hotel than a hostel.”
Though the hostel is located 25mins metro ride from the city center, it's quite near the metro station, you can simply cross the road to get on the metro.And there are security guards in the front door.You need to show your room key when you entering the hostel, and this makes you feel safe when in such a big city.The facilities and decorations are fancy and in good maintenance ,the only shortcoming is they don't provide the kitchen and even a fine common eating place .

Great Location for Bunkbed Room”
The property is very close to metro station (Colonel Fabian Station). The reception is very crowded especially when it time for check-in at about 2 pm until 6 pm. There are left luggage locker cost hourly. And also a big waiting lounge or cafe in the ground floor, which is many youngster there.. It also has a rooftop bar/cafe if you want to chill in the evening. I would recommend this hostel for a backpacker/budget tour for indivodual or group.

Great Location and Staff”
This hotel is a great bang for the euro. But make sure you realize what it is. It's a hostel geared towards a younger crowd, not the Ritz. Once you understand what the demographic is, you'll realize this hotel is great. The rooms are clean and functional. There is no TV, but this is Paris. If you're watching TV, you're doing it wrong. If you want a hair dryer, you need to trade your passport or id at the front desk for one (remember the demographic). The restaurant is functional & cheap, but recommend spending a few more euros on better options (but great for that Americano or hot chocolate after a day of sightseeing). There is a lounge area for smokers (covered area between two buildings). Location is right on Colonel Fabien circle with a metro right on the circle (serious selling point as it made everything accessible). There are also restaurants on the circle and many more just a short walk away. Staff was stupendous - super friendly and helpful. Well worth it!

If you can handle the noise that comes with sleeping in a shared room (people coming in late at nigth, or leaving very early in the morning) it if fine! Bring a padlock fort locking the luggage in your room. Breakfast with bread is horribly boring as it is not served with anything like butter or confiture. Better to get a petit dejeuner elsewehere or order something else from their menu. Very friendly well English speaking French staff, wonderful!

Great location close to the Colonel Fabien metro. The Hostel is clean, tidy and comfortably tranquil. I was there over a weekend and they had a party in the bar on the lower floor, this was a good chance to meet people and other solo travelers. There wasn't a great breakfast variety however, it was quite vernacular. I would visit again, as a solo traveler or a group.

Nice and cool place”
This place is suitable for a group of young people traveling light and don't mind to stay in a dorm. The bed and room is very clean. We were travelling in a group of 6 so we managed to request a whole 6 persons dorm to be occupied by us. However, everything here is commercialized. To request for a towel, you need to pay, to keep luggage before check-in, you need to pay, and etc....hence, lack of the personal touch like other hostels. Overall, was a nice experience.

Staff need to learn how to knock, but overall Good Visit”
Loved the hostel itself, the beds were very comfortable and you had some privacy which was nice. However, not a single staff member knocked before they entered my room - and this happened at least 10 times, no exaggeration. There were multiple times where I was sleeping or resting in the morning and the cleaning staff barged in without knocking, which is what happens at every other place I have ever stayed. On one occasion, they came in when I was about to shower, and I TOLD them I was about to shower, and they started cleaning it anyway.... and I had to wait. On another occasion, a man barged in without knocking when I was standing at the sink in a towel doing my makeup! And I paid extra for an all-female room so men should ESPECIALLY make sure to knock before entering! This happened almost every day and I was really uncomfortable.
