Really good hostel! It seems to be absolutely enormous! Facilities and location were great. Only criticism is that check in took quite a while.

There is queue in front of the ladies bathroom. In order to take a shower, you have to wait half an hour. The room I stayed was so small for 4 people. The security and cleanliness is good. Not a suitable place for people seeking quiet places just to sleep, partying hostel.

Possibly the best hostel I have staying in in years. Only thing not available here that others have are a few computers with Internet access for those who don't carry around laptops. Perhaps a nice to have one though. Keep up he incredable work!!!

Hostel was in a perfect location, right near Russell Square tube stop and within walking distance of King's Cross and Euston stations. The atmosphere was sociable and friendly. Security was excellent. I paid $100 AU for a night, which I thought was overpriced for a private room - which ended up being a room with a bunk bed and no ensuite. However, London is expensive in itself and I doubt I would have got a cheaper deal in a hostel elsewhere of the same quality. I enjoyed my stay.

Well run, clean, and nice hostel...but very industrial and lacks of personality. Helpful and nice staff, but only at a minimum. More of a hotel feel than hostel. I'd prefer something a bit smaller with more personality, charm and fun. But at Generator you will find a nice and clean bed/bathroom for a good sleep or a lively bar downstairs for a party. Not the most social atmosphere though...maybe too big?

Generator has upped their game since my last stay. However they really have squeezed every bed possible into each room leaving no room for a suitcase (medium-large suitcases won't fit in your allocated locker). Apart from that the Generator would have to be one of the best hostels in London to stay.

the showers need more hangers and the taps need new handles, otherwise excellent.

This was a very comfortable stay with great provision for basic necessities and good hygiene standards. The ambience is lively with people of all ages, from all around the world staying in the hostel. I immediately felt welcomed and knew it would be a memorable time as everything was well taken care of. I would highly recommend this place to any person visiting London. Also, it is conveniently located near some great attractions.

This hostel was everything you could need for a stay in London! It's only about 5 minutes walk to the metro which is very convenient and there is a shopping center nearby that has plenty of restaurants and shops. Also, I loved having the movie theater in the hostel that showed films every night at both 8 and 11pm. The cafe/restaurant in the hostel was also nice to have. The only problem I found was that the 10 person room was kind of cramped and the shared bathroom was quite far from the room.

Had an amazing time staying here! Met some amazing people, the staff and security are really nice if you get to know them! Bar is reasonable price and is open every night! No complaints really just it's difficult to bring anyone back if you were planning on it. I kept coming back to stay! Miss is already!

One of the best hostels I stayed in UK. It is a large operation yet it is well kept and clean.

Felt safe in this hostel although wouldn't say it's a party hostel as there were a lot of old people. Close to tube station for easy transport. Rooms were very muggy not very pleasant to be in. Toilets flooded so couldn't use the toilets on our floor. Overall satisfactory stay.

One of the best hostels I have stayed at so far in my Europe trip. They clean so often and security is on top of everything. Also met some great people here. Only problem I would say is the check in process is awfully slow, so the line gets really long.

This place is near the Russell square tube station, which is extremely convenient. All staff are extremely helpful and offer help whenever needed. Security is right and good, would definitely recommend visiting the hostel!
