My room's bathroom was not clean and restocked. I left the hostel on my first day to no more toilet paper and returned to no toilet paper a clear sign that no one had been in to clean the room that day.

Generator Barcelona was my favorite hostel during the 2015-2016 winter bresk. Amenities were: Full bar, cafeteria, lounge areas, access to computers, building wide wifi, access to washer and dryer, and daily house keeping. I met an amazing group of people in an 8 bed room. Would recommend.

Brilliant hostel, amazing sangria. Rooms are small and shower in the room is tiny, they do have additional facilities though. Worth the money.

Overall a very unfriendly and overpriced place. It also is very far away from the best places in Barcelona. Furthermore, it charges you for a basic continental breakfast of bread that most Barcelona places will include in their price. I DONT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE, especially for solo travelers, young travelers or travelers on a budget. There is nothing inexpensive about anything they offer. It is more like a hotel.

Very nice hostel, which is clean and with a good ambiance. The 6 bed female dorm is a little small. The continental breakfast for €4.50 is not particularly interesting and the coffee is nothing special to speak of. Staff is super friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is really good with a bar and more quiet areas for reading, working or playing foosball etc. It is located rather close to La Sagrada Família and baout a 30 min. walk to Plaza de Catalunya.

Clean, great showers, comfortable beds with personal plugs and light! Huge but still relatively easy to meet people. The sangria at the bar has to be the strongest in town!

Really enjoyed my stay. First hostel I've ever stayed in. Staff was very friendly. Especially Moulay!he helped us with bags, extra pillows, and overall questions we had about Barcelona. Food was outstanding. Beds were very comfortable and had a quiet nights sleep. Great socializing area too. Would stay there again in a heart beat.

Everything was fine apart from the severe lack of atmosphere at the hostel, there are no events in evening and the social room lacks socialising, something was dry about this place, better only if you know people staying there or a mum and dad with children, for 18 to 35 young travelers not so good if your looking to socialise with fellow hostellers in evenings

I would recommend this hostel to everyone visiting Barcelona !! It's amazing ! The staff is very friendly , the Location is in the center of Barcelona and in a very beautiful street. The inner architecture and decoration is very colorful and innovative . Rooms and beds are very cosy and comfortabe. We were a group of 4 girls and we really loved everything in there , we met wonderful people and enjoyed our stay . So if you are reluctant to book or not , I would say go for it !! go go go

Excellent hostel! Staff were helpful and friendly, room and ensuite was great albeit a little small, fantastic location and close to the metro station. However, the food from the bar/restaurant was very average, I would not recommend it.

Room was clean and brightly decorated. My first stay at a hostel and it was a great experience for me - I will definitely choose to stay at a Generator hostel again. Storage compartment given was big. Bathrooms were a little cramped though.

The forms are pretty packed in there - not much walking space at all. Other than that the beds are nice, the location is great, and the hostel is really well decorated. Id definitely recommend

Loved the quirky design of the hostel and loved that the "hotel" part was separate from the hostel part as it was very quiet. Breakfast could have a bit more variety or at least the eggs a bit tastier but thats just nit picking. Would recommend to anyone! Great location too.

We booked a private room for 3 with the ensuite. The room was basic and clean. Toilet was small, but great shower. The hostel itself was really nice. The reception staff was super friendly and helpful, told me how to get to wherever I wanted to go, and booked the tours for me. (especially Medea!) The bar was fantastic. Food was great, and the bar staff were really friendly and a great laugh (i forgot to ask their names! Sorry!!) They made my last night there really enjoyable, and even got to see

Staff weren't overly welcoming. The shower is too small to even turn around in and the shower head attachment was broken and fell off several times while showering not. Towels cost too much. Breakfast had decent selection, eggs were cold. Tapas tour poorly advertised. Bedrooms are smaller than the pictures. Directions to hostel were poor, i was lost for a half hour, and i couldve taken the Aerobus which wasnt advetised. Overall worth it, but Generator Copenhagen shines in comparison.
