Far from centre. Shared showers with only a curtain and no where to change. No luggage room so had to pay for a locker. Huge hostel, no much atmosphere while I was there. Cheap but not too cheerful.

We had a great experience at the hostel even for a couple of things. The bathrooms are full of insects like mosquitos and wasps and they didn't smell so good sometimes, and the waitress of the bar was so slowly and she dindn't take care of us very well. The breakfast was so nice!

It wasn't clean at all. Dead flies everywhere and rubbish in my room. I have seen sooo many hostels cheaper than this and perfectly clean. You can't check out and leave your luggage there. You have to pay at least 5€ for it. No locker left in my room for me which was annoying and the people at guest services didn't care at all. I guess it is too big.l The only thing Iiked Was the atmosphere . But at least 11pm you can't go into the hostel without guys screaming at you. .

Worst hostel I've stayed in my life. Terrible staff who didn't help even find a cheap supermarket, no use of kitchen, I couldn't bring food from outside, no luggage room... This company is a money-spinner who doesn't care about proving proper customer service and caring about its clients. Never again.

Hello Nicolas, thanks for taking the time to give a review about your stay in Generator Prenzlauer Berg. I feel sorry, that you did feel like no one took care of you enough. Maybe you'll give us the chance one day to take the care of you you feel comfortable with or you will also try our house in Berlin Mitte. Regards. Ronny Spilka Front Office Manager

This hostel is not very familiar, intimate, is not like a hostel is a real hotel with another concept, everything is strict, planificated, the staff is too serious, i think they are stressful cause many people go there, they are always busy so they dont have special worker with enough time to guide and show to the clients, another thing that i dont like is the location is far for the center and it was dramatic when i went out and need to come back, well for the rest is clean and safe.

The hostel is really close to metro and tram station which is really good to reach places in Berlin. The hostel is big and offer facilities, it was very clean and good mood. The breakfast is 4euros but there is a lot of options and for us totally worth it!

The showers could use more cleaning, otherwise pretty well done with the housekeeping.

I had a pleasant stay here, it was not as dirty as some of the reviews led me to believe and the shower curtains are really a non issue. Not great location for checking out the sights of the city but going out in freidrichshain from here was a breeze

We enjoyed our time in Berlin and this hostel was certainly a part of that. The staff was very friendly and helped with anything we asked. They were extremely busy the day we checked in and our bed linens had not been changed from the previous tenets, but as soon as we brought this to the staff's attention they apologized and sent someone up right away. The hostel itself is a bit far from the city center, but the M5 and M6 run right next to the hostel. Make sure to stop by the in house bar!

Has a lot of potential, but they closed the kitchen early due to lack of staff. Some guests were smoking inside yet there were no consequences apart from being told not to. Lots of arcade games and a good bar. Bathrooms are dirty. Check out was simple. Have to pay to leave luggage. English breakfast which was much appreciated.

Can't really beat this hostel for the price paid. It is very large and aimed at the younger crowd, which is fine as it has a party atmosphere to it which caters for that audience. Having said that the place is very clean, has good shower and toilet facilities and is about a 30 min s-bahn ride to Landsberger allee, where it is unmissable. Good priced drinks and food in a cosy bar make this a good choice.

Big hostel with 900 beds. Placed sort of on the outskirts of the city but the s-bahn and tram stops right next to it so it's easy to get around. They have a bar and ok meeting facilities. But too commercial compared to the more intimate smaller hostels I'm used to. So basically you get what you pay for and I think it's the kind of place young people stay after visiting the vibrant nightlife in Berlin.

The hostel was right next to train station and so location was convenient. Staffs were pretty efficient and quick despite a lot of people waiting. Price was good and overall stay was good.

Shower wasn't the best and was kinda dirty, and the beds were quite bad, but everything else was great. Pretty sweet atmosphere, good happy hour and good staff. Only bad night was when the bar was rented out for an event and we (the residents) couldn't get in...

Let's just say that this is a motel with bunk beds. The beds were clean which was great but everything else was sub-par. The toilet smelt like pee all the time, the walls were so thin the slightest sound from the corridor can be heard in the room and the staff was not helpful. Check out time is at 10am but this was not mentioned to us when we checked in. Everything in this hostel shouts 'we want you to have fun' but 'don't bring your own food'. Overall a very disappointing experience.

First, the worst thing of the hostel was the staff. Everytime we asked something, they answered in a rude way and making fun of our questions in german between them. Besides that, they didnt really help us. Second, it was really cold in the common part and warm inside in the rooms, so i got sick because with this. Third, the bathroom was really dirty and the drains were all blocked in the baths so they were always full of water!! I will never come back to this place again.

Fantastic hostel, good for partying and for a quieter stay. Not centrally located but right beside an S-Bahn station so very easy to get into the city
