This hostel was fine, but a heads up before you stay there - the hostel feels like it caters to big groups of 19 year olds. If that's not you, the atmosphere isn't great and you'll feel like you're back in high school. The location is good if. You plan on hanging out in Eixample a lot, otherwise I would stay somewhere else. The hostel was also very disorganized and check in took forever.

I had a great time at Generator! The rooms were clean, cool and looked very nice. A great location, and some excellent facilities downstairs like the bar and seating areas.

It was really clean and the staff were all friendly and very helpful. Compared to my previous hostel experience the Generator seamed to be more groups of people on holiday rather than a mix of single travellers so it wasn't as easy to get involved as a single traveller. You aren't provided with a locker, just a drawer which you can additionally use a lock on but the hostel does sell locks in reception. Having an en suit was a nice bonus too.

It's more of a business than a place to relax and meet people. Decent enough though quite far from the heart of Barca though, good half an hour walk, if you like fancy shops then that's your hostel.

The hostel was pretty good. The building was good, and as long as you come up from the right exit from diagonal metro, very easy to find. Had a couple of issues with the room, air con was freezing for those on top bunks, and a couple of parts of the shower of regularly fall apart but otherwise fine (and shower water pressure and hot water supply brilliant!) Only other comment was that the whole place seemed flooded with 18 year old Australians on "contiki tours" making me feel very old!

Huge hostel, fantastic location. I recommend dinner at Bo on the square just a few blocks behind the hostel! BUT this hostel hosts loads of huge groups, so meeting people of traveling alone is difficult. breakfast is not included, which is unfortunate. The rooms are very nice, bit cramped in the sleeping quarters.

Nice, modern hostel. The A/C definitely helped to beat the heat. However, the hostel is massive. Would not recommend for solo travelers. And there is NO KITCHEN, which I found annoying and inconvenient. Generally, were large contiki groups staying at the hostel so it was a bit difficult to meet people. But the location is great, close to the metro. The rooms can be a bit cramped but overall it's manageable if you're organized.

When we first arrived late at night we were given keys to a room that when we arrived into the room there was only one bed free. It took over 40 mins for themto understand the situation and give us a new room but we had to check out of that room at 10am and wait until a new room became available to check into that room which was a huge inconvenience as we were only in Barcelona for a few days and it really ate into our time there.

Fantastic hostel. Location is a bit far away from the city centre of Barcelona. When we arrived the lady was a bit rude and not helpful, but otherwise the staff was great. There was a mix up with our rooms and the staff were great and fixed it up and even gave us a free breakfast token. Quite a big deposit to get a towel. The restaurant and bar downstairs was awesome and we ate there most nights. Atmosphere is great and always sonething to do. Very clean and felt very safe.

Absolutely amazing hostel facilities great, showers and toilets little bit tight but you get used to it. Aircon in rooms are amazing, facilities top class, lots of night life fun and activities, the one HUGE downfall was the day staff, the most unhelpful, snooty, rude bunch of people I have ever dealt with. They were obnoxious and did not at all make you feel welcome, the night staff were great though one guy in particular was always helpful and cheerful, but the woman during the day.. Gosh!!

There was this one guy that just thought that everybody was stupid. Whatever question you asked the answer was: "Eeuuh, yea-ah?" or " Eeuuh, na-ah?" The rooms for 8 people are too small. If somebody is browsing through his luggage everything is blocked. The rest of the hostel was excellent!

Room was clean and comfortable. Good to have individual lights and plug socket. Lounge area good. Free walking tour available and meant I was able to meet other people travelling on their own. Not sure that the breakfast was worth the money, especially when there is plenty of local cafes and a bakery just opposite selling delicious croissants!

Only a 10 minute walk from Sagrada Familia but a decent hike from the beach. The bar was packed every night which was good for meeting people.

Great location and a great hostel. TONS of rooms and awesome beds. The bar was great and there were two options of breakfast to purchase depending on your budget. A full concierge desk with a list of things to do and tickets that you can buy. A really AWESOME hostel in my mind!

This was our first hostel stay ever, and if it's anything to gauge, everything was pretty good.
