Great location and easy access to everything! The snacks vending machine is a bit expensive. Management might think to lower as convenient store is a round corner.
Generators a generally good value. Typical hotel style hostel, clean safe, helpful staff. The bar is pretty decent and the location is really good. Right in front of train station and ZOB if your taking busses. Theres no kitchen but these kind of hostels mostly dont have one. Perfect if your doing a night or two.

Generator Hamburg has good facilities and is always clean, but is very sterile and has almost no atmosphere, probably because it's so big. The breakfast wasn't worth the 5euros, unless you can eat a whole box of muesli, and my locker was broken so it wasn't particularly secure either. Okay for the price, but not great for meeting people (even though I was in the communal areas mostly, but still found it close to empty at all hours).
faciliites are very poor, very small toilett/shower/washing-compartments, even the sink (about 10x10 cm) was so small that you can't brush your teeth properly without doing some weird gymnastics, no kitchen, no fridge, no eating room: so you are forced to eat costly at the bar/restaurant on the ground floor
I read a few bad reference about the cleanliness of the place and I was a bit worried but the place was really a big surprise. It's a big hostel but it's managed in a really proficient way.Rooms are clean and tidy and the bathrooms as well. The only negative note are toilets and showers in the room ...they are ridiculously small! Come on guys WTF!
Good position, good service, I would reccomed it!
unbelivably good location really close to train and bus station! and facility was perfect even though in the room shower and toilet were too small I can use another shower room outside my room so it was no problem at all
One of the better hostels I have stayed in. Excellent location and love the solutions in the doorms

Great location, great security. Everything was very clean. A lot of comfortable places in the hostel where you can hang out and relax. I would definitely stay there again and recommend is to my friends.
Staff come across a bit cold. Rooms are standard, it's a chain hostel after all. En suite bathroom is nice, though incredibly tiny! Overall average experience.
Great location. Clean and safe. Showers and bathrooms are small, but it's for the space of the rooms. Staff speaks great English and is very helpful.
Wifi strength was poor in our room on level 5.
The only downside of this hostel is that the bathroom inside the room is just so tiny but there is the bigger in the hallway
It is a nice modern hostel, there are always a lot of people staying there so you would be able to make new friends quickly. The hostel is in a nice area so it's quick to get around the city and right beside a bus station. I had a lot of fun on the free walking tour and saw most of the city and made friends for life. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Great location right at the center, comfy beds own plug next to the bed and excellent wifi, didn't like that there was no kitchen but I knew that going in for a short stay is great
Generator Hostel is highly recommended.
Know exactly what to expect with Generator and had a pleasant stay. Somewhere between a hostel and hotel. Great location - walking distance from everything touristy in Hamburg! Facilities are great - wifi is powerful, separate power board for each bed, a toilet and shower in room and free city walking tours leave directly from hostel. Unfortunately laundry facilities are quite limited in comparison to the size of the hostel. Overall, a nice stay!
Thr showers in the room waa extra small. I could not even move inside
First impressions mean a lot to me and when I arrived the check in lady was rude, snappy, miserable and unhelpful. We then made our way up to our room to find we had been placed on the top bunk of 2 beds with people already in them, as we are travelling as a couple it made life very difficult. The beds had dead skin and toe clippings all through them, we slept on our own towels they were that disgusting. Otherwise an ok place to stay, I wouldn't go back though.
