Hostelworld says:

Hostelworld guests have said Generator Hostel London is a clean, secure, 'well-organised hostel with good and professional staff'. We like their 'lively and atmospheric' bar, which travellers tell us is 'a great place to hang out a bit and have a beer while meeting nice people from around the globe'. Our users say this hostel is 'only three minutes' walk to Russell [Square] Underground Station, six minutes to King's Cross Station [and] three minutes to buses'.

Property Information:

Generator London was the very first Generator and you'll find it in the area of Russell Square in the heart of the West End.

It's the ideal spot to enjoy London from, everything you need to see is minutes away by tube. You'll never run out of things to do in the UK's capital. You just have to decide where to start and we can help you with that. When you have seen and done it all for the day head back to Generator and unwind.

It's a destination in its own right and a great place to socialise and reflect on your experiences of the day. Head to the bar and chill out areas to get yourself a well deserved drink or two. It's lively, friendly and un-missable. We've also got great beds for sleepy heads and of course you'll be enjoying London life in the most authentic surroundings.

Choose from a great selection of rooms, from Dorms, to Quads, to Private rooms with innovative mod cons. Fast and free Wi-Fi is all yours too. To get the most out of your stay visit the travel shop and our city experts will help you devise an itinerary that will take you to all the hidden treasures this dynamic city has to offer. You'll have to stay longer to fit it all in but you'll not need convincing of that. We'll see you there soon.

    Nice and clean. This place has metal grate floors, and a very busy, buzzing atmosphere. Very nice if you're looking to have some fun and meet lots of people. I think it houses about 800 people when full.
