Property Description

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.

Latest Review

" Staying at the Generator Hostel was fantastic! Great prices, accessible walking distances to food, shops and tube stations. The beds are comfy, rooms spacious enough, lockers provided and electric key door scanners, and fantastic and frequently cleaned showers/toilets. Music is loud of a night but nothing you can't sleep through. Guys/girls at the desk were really helpful and always happy to help! I would definitely recommend, great value for money if thats main concern. "
