Stayed at a twin private room. Room was clean but small. Atmosphere bit disappointing for a hostel but overall value for money is very good.

Hello, thanks a lot for writing us a feedback. We are happy to hear that you had all in all a great stay at Generator Berlin Prenzlauer Berg. We hope to welcome you soon again. Greetings from Berlin - Melanie, Front Office Supervisor


The location is fine, although you can't walk anywhere. The bathrooms were pretty terrible and the showers incredibly small. The only spot with wifi was in the lobby which was always packed with no place to sit. Because there were so many people online the internet always cut off, which I was relying on to plan my trip, as I was only there 3 days. The price was not bad and the rooms decent, but next time I am in Berlin I will look for a hostel with better atmosphere

Dear guest, thanks a lot for giving us a feedback. I'm really sorry that you didn't feel comfortable while you are staying at Generator. In the last months we did some renovations and we even got a new internet provider to improve our wifi service. I hope we can convince you of the benefits of Generator the next time you are in Berlin. Best wishes - Melanie, Front Office Supervisor


There were lots of school age children, which was totally fine, but i think the bar could have been more of a focus point to get adults together and foster friendships etc. because in the rest of the hostel sometimes you felt like only teenagers were visiting.

The hostel is located out on the Ring in the NE section of Berlin, but as the S-Bahn is just a two minute walk away, it's as easy as hell to get anywhere in Berlin you desire. The staff (save for one chap) were courteous, friendly, and helpful, and the pub downstairs was fun. My only complaint is their refusal to allow you to bring in outside food, especially considering how ridiculously expensive their kitchen was. Nonetheless, I would have no problem returning in the future!
