very great hostel, location is amazing- walking distance from kings cross. super helpful staff and great rooms. they were undergoing renovations at the time of my visit and they seemed to be about 30% done and the new bar and cafe looked great. cant wait to go back to london next time and stay at the new facilities!
Overall, The Generator is a good hostel. It's annoying how there is construction work going on there all the time though. Because of this, the wifi was down for 2 days that I was staying there, which was really annoying. Also, I was staying on the bottom floor - so I'm not sure if this also happens on the other floors - but whenever someone uses the sink in their room, it makes a huge noise throughout the whole of the bottom floor. So yeah it's hard to sleep.
great location but not enough toilet and shower facilities on each floor, in fact there were no female toilets at all on our floor. room was very very hot. toilets very dirty, corridors very dirty.
Very nove hostel! First of all, excelent location, then, great staff, very helpful, extremely kind. The only problem ia the room. It was clean and the bed is confortable, but we stayed at a 4 beD private room and it was VERY small. The bathroom is clean, but the shower area is small and tou see the water cover your feet! Besides that, everything was fine!

Our room was great. The hostel is being remodeled and ours was one of the newly finished ones. It is a good thing the rest of the rooms will be new again soon. The staff and facilities are great.

They were renovating at the time of my visit. I stayed on the fifth floor but to use bathroom or toilet facilities we had to go to the fourth floor. Location is very close to Russell Sq tube and there are shops and restaurants in the area.
Was a nice central place and the staff were very friendly and helpful with answering questions. The only negative was half the facilities were out of order (I.e showers, vending machines, computers etc) and they were in the middle of construction near the bar/lounge area. Place looked old, but they kept it reasonably clean. Stayed in an 8-bed mixed which was spacious but no privacy curtains.
