Very modern Hostel 2 minutes walk from Hamburg main train station. Bring your own padlock to lock your big box under the bed. We havent tried breakfast or the bar of the hostel because train station offers very cheap turkish stores with breakfast. Wifi is working in the bedrooms!
very great location. the hostel is clean. only sometimes the wifi signal drop in my room, but that not major issue.
super aufenthalt und sehr nahe am bahnhof auf jeden fall empfehlenswert
No kitchen facility like a normal hostel. But very clean and professionally managed.
Right across the road from the train station! Seriously cannot beat this location. Staff were helpful, highly recommend doing the walking tour of the city. Clean and the facilities were good.
They doesn't cleane a room everyday. But of you ask to reception, they can be do.
Very good location. Only two minutes walk from train station. Room is clean and there is USB portal next to the light switch. Very useful.
Perfect location and very clean rooms. The staffs are helpful.
Absolutely loved the Generator, the lockers were really spacious and fit BOTH my 2 cabin size bags. The security lockers at 2€ for 24 hours were a definite plus - security here in general is fantastic! The walking tour and pub crawl pick you up from the Generator as well but the bar could use a little bit more atmosphere - maybe a few more live acts like that guy on Thursday night. But otherwise really enjoyed my stay and will definitely recommend it! Oh also consider including fruit in breaky
everything was perfect except the small area of shower and toilet in the en suite rooms, but totally was perfect.
The hostel was clean, tidy, nice environment. A lot of what looked like high school groups staying there - which was a bit of a buzz kill. Location was a bit interesting with the homeless and 'ladies of the night' wondering round nearby. Overall happy with my stay, great bed/facilities!!
Extremely convenient and excellent location! Though bath room is a little bit small...
All though i stayed only for one night i can say the room is very nice (8 bedroom mix dorms) the toilet and shower is very small. good location 2 min walk from central train station very close to the center! staff is very helpful and if u drink to much and ending getting back at 7 am to the hostel and need to check out at 10am its possible to pay 5 more euros and stay in till 1pm , bit expensive but useful as last resort. believe me!
Location was excellent for train / bus and city. Hostel was clean, secure and spacious with many areas to relax. It would have been nice to have one of these as a quiet space. The only downside was the "colorful' back street - with the girls of the night - but don't all cities have them.
Great big hostel, with a nice bar in it. Was very clean but the bathroom / shower are SO small! Breakfast pricey but good.
By far the best hostel I've stayed at. The staff are amazing, the building itself is so modern and beautfully decorated, location is perfect, the bar has amazing food and drinks, it's clean, the beds are comfy. A complete 10/10. If there is a Generator is any city I stay in I wouldn't think twice about staying there.
This was one of the best hostels we've ever stayed in. It felt like a hotel because of the cleanliness and toilet and shower within the rooms. The location is wonderful. Next to the metro station and you even can see the central station. Many possibilities to eat in the neighborhood which are not that expensive. Unfortunately we couldn't use internet for free. The bar with tv's and chilling area was great. Would definitive stay there again!
Is one of those Hostels that promises a lot and fails to deliver. What I mean by this is that every room has a bathroom but to brush your teeth you have to hook your head between a shelf under the mirror and the sink, since it's so small (not a very pleasant experience). The Wi-fi is painfully slow. The lockers are an extra, as they'll only work if you have a small padlock (they charge 3€). The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean, but I'll definitely try different next time.

The showers are mini, if you go use the ones down the hall which are normal sized. The lockers under the beds are also on the smaller size. It's a well run hostel but expensive for what you get.
Quite a good hostel. Extrememly new with nice bar and downstairs area. Location is fantastic but also interesting. With nice looking restaurents on the train station side and a slum like road with hookers at night down the other direction. Makes for interesting location. Having train station nearby is fantastic including that EDEKA is open to 11pm. Showers and Toilet in the room are stupidly tiny and useless but usable (just) Although much better bathrooms are on each floor which rarely used
