Very comfortable stay, felt safe in the location and environment, several bakeries and cafes nearby, easy walking distance to places, but also near a couple metro stops.

A young environment, nice decoration and and clean building. This hostel is located in a very good place, 15 minutes away from Sagrada Família walking and very nearby to the main streets. I felt safe and comfortable.

Over all the hostel was cool. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfy. The atmosphere was awesome and the fact that there was food and a bar inside of the hostel was cool as well.

I really liked the ambiance in this hostel. There are lots of comfortable places to hang out and common spaces to meet people. Not quite as clean as I would like but overall a good experience.

I would stay again as the hostel itself was lovely. I would however stay in a smaller or private room as the girls in our dorm we very inconsiderate and another never left the room the entire 4 days we were there! But aside from the roommates, the Hostel itself is clean, safe, and has great facilities.

Ask for a room with window outside!! Because there are some dark rooms only with a light shaft.

The location of this place is great if you are interested in staying somewhere not by La Rambla (which I was). There are tons of really great shops and restaurants close, thats where the good part ends. The staff was rude, unhelpful and not welcoming. The rooms were standard but nothing special. This is not a good place to meet people, maybe its better if you have a bigger group.

I had a good time at this hostel,and I've met some great people as well, which is always a bonus when travelling alone! The hostel itself was good, lively (bring some earplugs) and good facilities, the staff was friendly and helpful at arrival and departure. The location is also good, it's a short walk from the metro station and other sights are either within walking distance or a few minutes away by metro. - The room could've been cleaner though, housekeeping came in at 19:00pm! :/

Rooms are a bit small, but the suite for 6 was a good bet and the hostel has a great vibe.

I was extremely impressed with this hostel! It has great amenities, the staff was friendly and spoke English, and very helpful at offering information for tourists. The only thing that could've been better was that it was located a little far from all the sights we wanted to see, however it is located between the Diagonal and Verdaguer metro stops so it was very easy to hop on any line we needed and we could arrive at our destination within 10-15 minutes. I would definitely stay here again!

I stayed in Generator hostel for 7 nights and really enjoyed my stay. The food here was very reasonable too. If I would do anything to improve the hostel moving forward, I would: 1. Make other roommates be aware if there are other people sleeping in the room after 10pm to be courtious and not make too much noise and not put on main lights. 2. Change the wifi option so that once logged in, it recognises your device and don't have to resubmit your email address each time.
