Me and my friend enjoyed our stay there. Love how Generator maintain their quality. Not much to complain about, except for the fact that the shower room is too small and seems like it's not well-ventilated which always leaves it so humid and some sort of rancid odour after being used. (We were staying at room 510, a 6-beds female bedroom with private bathroom in it.) Our lockers also could not open. Already told the staff, she told us to try pulling it up and/or down to open; still no luck.

Great facilities, rooms a little squishy but a lovely place to stay. Bar and cafe are great - good place to chill out. Felt a little out of town but lots of food options available in the area

Comfortable, strategic location and very comfortable place to rest with awesome facilities! The interior is totally chic and edgy. Really suitable for young and adventurous people. Difenately will come back to stay here again if visits Barcelona next time. The launge is so comfortable to hang out and chill when the restaurant and bar are both totally rock to make more new friends. Crazy ceiling detail, totally cool!!! And the receptionists too, knowledgable and verygood English. Well done guys!

Beautifully clean and modern hostel in a good Barcelona location. The hostel is huge so they so charge extra for most things, including breakfast (no kitchen facilities to cook your own food). Also took 45mins to check in but that was due to the huge volume of people staying at the hostel. Overall a good hostel to stay in for a night or two while stopping over.

Stayed 4 nights at this hostel in a 6 bed dorm with 2 of my friends, we were lucky to have 3 other nice people staying in the dorm. Staff were quite slow during check in so make sure to arrive early or you will be waiting for more than an hour! Rooms are very clean with air con, bring a padlock to store away your belongings. The bar serves great food and drinks! Would def come back again

Great hostel but a bit too big and commercial for a solo traveller. If you're travelling in a group would highly recommend due to the location and facilities but it felt a bit cold and hotel-like for me personally.

When booking with hostel world you pay a deposit which usually means that you are paying towards your stay but for some reason this isn't the case for the generator. Hostel world say there are no booking fees but when booking with generator there are, was confused and the staff just shrugged and said that's the way it is even thought it's never been like at any other hostel I've stayed.

A bit far out from the nicer parts of the city but the place itself cannot be faulted. By far the nicest hostel ive stayed in.

Beautifully decorated- but the common rooms weren't really used by guests. A money grab- absolutely everything cost extra. Just another super huge hostel, not much heart. It wasn't awful but i probably wouldn't stay there again. Very hotel like- anonymous, lots of big groups, very uniform.

I am sure we will get it, because we want to offer it and that's important in a hostel, I totally agree with you. Thanks again for this and we hope to see you in the future.

Great hostel, decent priced drinks, well-priced food (though I didn't end up ordering any), beds were comfy and clean as were the rooms they were in. Great evening atmosphere with performances and an in-house bar/DJ as well as a lounge. Cool art and design throughout the hostel!
