We stayed in the private room in the 'hotel' part of the hostel. Location was excellent, the room was clean and a nice design, we had a good view from the room and the bar downstairs was good. Unfortunately we had to queue for about 20-30 minutes to check in and as a result of this, staff were a bit stressed and unfriendly/unhelpful. It would also be useful to have a safe in the room. Despite this, it was a good experience and served our needs.

Good hostel in walking distance to the Main Street and close to metro which takes you to all the main touristy things to do! The private bathroom and shower was awesome and there is a fantastic churro place open 24/7 just down the street which is ahhhhmazing. Food at the hostel restaurant was bad but apart from that all good! Awesome lobby area too :)

We stayed here for one night after deciding to stay in Barcelona for an extra night (so didn't experience it fully). The reception area and facilities were really good. The location is a bit far out of you're walking but is close to the metro. We chose here as it was affordable and good value for money. Beds were comfy & lockers were nice and spacious - only downside was the mess and smell the boys in our room made - but hey you can't choose your roomies!!! And it's all a part of the experience

We were literally only here for 8 hours because of late flights, we checked in at 2 am and left at 10am checkout. Beds and bathrooms were clean! Atmosphere would have been great no doubt if we were there for longer!

Very impressive hostel. Can't complain about anything. The weather was very hot when I stayed so the air conditioning was essential. Couldn't sleep without it. Rooms were dark at night which was also handy when sleeping. Rooms were clean, security was very good and it's possible to buy locks in reception. Staff were helpful and approachable. The location of the hostel is quite a bit of of city centre but easily accessible by metro. Had a cracking time in a cracking hostel and a cracking city.

An amazing hostel. Very new and clean. I felt very safe here and was surprised at how well presented it was. The atmosphere was fun and the location is 3 metro stops from la ramblas. Would stay here again.

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.

Great facilities. I would highly recommend this hostel. the room was very clean, good air conditioning, and close to lots of shopping. The restaurant was very good and bar was great. Fun atmosphere. Only thing I would change is that they should be more aware with the people the make you room with, I didn't have a problem until they put like a 50 year old angry Japanese guy in my room. Should room according to age group.

All the staff were attentive and helpful,I will definitely be back to Generator Barcelona.

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.
