Cute and smart”

The place is designed really smart so, even though the room is not so big it's not spacious. The room is very clean and the sheets are not charged extra. In general i really liked the room and it's good money for the price. The only 'unsmart' thing about the room is you can't wash your body without getting your hair wet, since the shower head is fixed to the ceiling. And it's forbidden to bring food from outside which is a negative point for the hostel in general in an expensive city such as Stockholm.

Hi there! Thanks a lot for the nice review ;) We're pleased to hear you had a good stay and liked our place! :) In regards to external food, since we don't have shared kitchen facilities (our place is too big for it), we ask our guests to avoid bringing in external food&drinks as we do serve them in our bar or restaurant :) This also helps keeping out place super clean :) We thank you for choosing Generator !

If I'll visit Stockholm again, I'll definitely stay again at Generator Stockholm. Room was spacious, food was great, and the staff were courteous and nice. Generator Stockholm is a 5-10 minute walk from the Arlanda Express Station, and the Stockholm Central Station. In front of the hotel is a 7-11 store. Wifi was super fast.

Very Convenient”

Generator has everything you would need from a hostel at an affordable price in Stockholm. Only thing missing is a kitchen to cook your own food would be nice but the restaurant there is pretty good. Very clean, lockers under your bed made it very safe. Staff were very nice. Very close to the train station to the airport, city centre and tourist areas so very convenient overall.

We loved Generator Stockholm, we stayed for 2 nights and the hostel had everything we needed. We had a large double room with natural light, which was clean and stylishly decorated. Water was hot, breakfast was good and there is a laundry service, which we used. The hostel bar has a great atmosphere and the staff are friendly. We really enjoyed our stay!

Not much more to add really, the place was fantastic, room was unbelievable, clean fresh, bed was very nice, we have stayed in rooms that were 5 star and were nowhere near as good as the Generator, when we go back next year we shall stay there again. So to sum it up, if you need a decent place to stay in Stockholm, look no further than this place, its well worth a visit.

Good for the partying lots (if you aren't, it's better to find somewhere else)”

What I like about Generator Stockholm : 1. Located within 10min walking distance to Arlanda Express, Stockholm Central and the airport bus terminal. 2. There is a digital locker storage system which costs SEK25 for 24 hours (small locker), and there is no limit how many time I open/close the locker. 3. I could get hot water at the bar next to the check in counter (which basically is the only place you could get drinking water) What I did not like : 1. 4-nights stay in a 6 beds female dorm was sufficient to tell that the ventilation in the room is poor. There are big windows in the room but we could only open a small side window to let the air in. No fan, no air conditioner. Good luck for those wishing to stay during summer... 2. Those teenagers in a school trip should be allocated at a different level from other independent travelers, as they were really loud and did not hesitate to bang the dorm doors even late at night. 3. There are parties EVERY SINGLE NIGHT. It's just too much.

Good for a quick night stay”

I stayed at the hostel as I had a 15 hrs layover at Stockholm and didn’t wnat to sleep at airport, this seems to be the only cheap option available around the central station. Its a HUGE hostel with over 100 rooms from dorm beds to triple rooms — thou i must from its deco and its reception area/bar this is a hostel caters to flashpackers. I stayed in a 6-bed mixed dorm - bed is comfy and comes with usb port and socket (a plus!) also a bathroom within a dorm room (double plus!). My stay was short but definitely comfy.

Basic but fine”

Ended up here as a last resort but it turned out fine. The room (twin) is basic but clean and more spacious than the hotel I stayed at previously. Wet room shower also better than normal shower over the bath. No TV but wifi was good enough to stream. Wifi connection a bit of a faff as it sometimes asked to register again. Cafe downstairs is handy. Small menu but some reasonable options. Burger was decent, fried fish was too small. Staff are pleasant but not much else in the way of service (get your own cutlery, salt (empty)) etc. Hard to get a seat as usually full of people on laptops but not eating. Had eggs and bacon for breakfast one day and that was surpassingly good. Cappuccino was small but seems to be a Stockholm target than a Generator thing. Location is convenient for station (for airport train) and top of the main shopping street (Drottningsgatan). 5 mins walk.

Location was still satisfactory but not suitable if you are carrying a lot of stuff. Generator Stockholm is more of a hostel, lacking of TV in the room. It will be better if breakfast was provided. With the same rate, I can stay at a hotel near the station with breakfast provided. Biggest plus point is the spacious room.

We booked a family room for 4 but was given a room for 6. Good thing is Generator allows early check in which really helps a lot after arriving at 8am in the morning. There's a laundry room but there wasn't any hot water dispenser or did I miss it? Location is just 600m away from the train station. 7-11 and chinese restaurant opposite the hotel. Breakfast was good. Buy the token the day before and breakfast is cheaper plus token includes a got drink or juice
