It's a european hostel so the cosyness and atmosphere is not like in asia or other hostels. This is basically a hotell where you share your room. But the hostel was clean, neat and has a great location right next to the train station :) nothing negative to say about it really. Ps. Good wifi and friendly staff

Hello, Thank you for your review. I am happy that you have had good time in Hamburg. Hope to see you again on your next trip. Sven Heberling Assistant General Manager


literally across the street from central hamburg station. Location can't get any better if you are traveling by train. However, shower and toilet facility was too small. There was no room for maneuverability. Can not rent towel, only buy them for 6.5 euros.

Hello, Thank you for sharing your impressions with us. You have mentioned really good points and we will internally see what we can be changed. I would be delighted if you chose Generator again on your next journey. Regards, Sven Heberling Assistant General Manager


The hostel is beautiful and clean. It's set in a good position, in front of the train station and close to the shopping aerea. Although this, the staff is unfriendly and too serius for a hostel. They didn't give any information about the city, events or somethingelse interesting to do in Hamburg.
