Great location and friendly staff. TINY showers but lockers in rooms were great. Rooms were incredibly hot in the summer as our window was broken

They charge me internet, and it is a free facility, also they are a lot of homeless in front the hostel, location is perfect near the Hbf . Friendly staff.
Very nice hostel! Buy the breakfast for 4.90€ and be there at 8 or earlier, so worth it!
Generator Hostel was great. Great location; in middle of Hamburg close to Hauptbahnhof, tours of city available, lots to do in hostel common area and people to meet, quite in the rooms (when not talking to roommates). I'll stay here again if in Hamburg again!
Good location near train station. Very large hostel. Good cafe and bar. Good for large groups. Discouraged being in outside good. No kitchen.
Everything was great. Maybe some AC in the hostel would be good. But they had computers, internet, free printing, wifi, great atmosphere, discounted food.
I wanted not to like this big, trendy hostel. But I liked it. It was very clean, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and I had a lovely time talking with a bunch of the other guests in the bar. I guess if I were to dislike anything, it'd be the pod-style bathroom inside the room, but it really was fine, too. The neighborhood is terrible. That's one bad thing. But it was a short walk to a good neighborhood and the hostel had good security. So what can I say: don't hesitate to stay here
Great location, but the staff could be a lot friendlier. The bathrooms are too small--even for Europe. Also, the hostel can do better with the card keys they are way too sensitive and work half the time. You have to go out of your way to meet people here. Dissapointing since Generator can do better than this.
The hostel is ok. The beds were fine and everything was clean. My big issue was that the bathrooms are literally smaller than train/airplane stalls. They were so hard to use and everything got wet so easily, which was terrible for a room of 8 people.
When I stayed the people in my room were in a group and decided to do their own thing for the night, however Sandemans pick up people for the bar crawl downstairs and I went on my own - met people on the crawl and had a great night in hamburg! There is a bar at the Hostel, but I didn't have time to check it out as only stayed one night.
Generator was great. The atmosphere was awesome - I loved how social it was and just a great place to hang out. The staff was all really friendly, the bed/room was comfortable, and I had no issues doing laundry. My only complaint is that the bathrooms inside the multi-bed dorms are tiiiinyyyyy. I preferred to use the larger common-use bathrooms that were accessible from the hall.
it is a very busy hostel. With 24 hours reception. Unfortunately the service rendered there all depends on who was on Duty. Out of five different receptionist we encounter. Only one girl was good. Service with s smile. Two were average. One indifferent. One was so bad that when I asked for the rate of the coin operated lockers, She has the audacity to tell me to go there and check for myself !!! I need another token to dry she thought I was trying to get a freebie. Very insulting !
Small, cramped facilities. Soft beds (i prefer them a bit more firm). But a totally okay place to stay.
Great location. Great price. People were friendly both staff and guests
the shower and toilet were incredibly small. otherwise no issues.
Clean and good facilities, staff were sometimes a little rude and disinterested but overall a good stay!
Great and very laid back staff who even upgraded me to a smaller dorm my short stay (which again was due to my late arrival)
The bathrooms in the rooms are to small to actually. I've or clean yourself
Great Location to see the city. Great atmosphere, very clean, a bit small, but overall great

The only things that let down this hostel is the fact that the bathrooms are far too small and designed in such a way that they're barely useable, and that during happy hour they had the slowest bartender in history working solo and most people just left.
