Property Description

The Generator Amsterdam Reception is open 24 hours a day with a duty manager always around and happy to help. It has flexible and spacious social areas, filled with creative design touches like glass-fronted elevators, a raised café and an outdoor terrace. We’ve turned the former lecture hall into an impressive chill-out lounge and bar, while the old library is now a relaxation and private events room and the basement and café are now dining destinations.
Stay connected with free Wi-Fi and share those holiday snaps. In need of some clean clothes? The laundry is open 24 hours for washing, drying and ironing. A secure luggage room gives you more freedom to explore Amsterdam bag-free! The best way to explore Amsterdam is definitely by bike. Luckily for you, our hostel provides Vanmoof bikes for rental. Come to our travel shop for city tour tickets and more. You forgot your toothbrush or want a travel journal to keep track of your experiences? Visit our GenStore for exclusive Generator products. Let us help you make the most of your stay! Our hostel staff are incredibly friendly, multilingual and know the city inside out. They’re on hand to help you with whatever info you need, just ask.

Ride your bicycle along café-lined waterways, visit the most creative shops around De Pijp or just kick back by the canal and try a few cold Dutch beers. It’s pretty hard to get stressed in Amsterdam, but having a good time is easy.
Generator Amsterdam is located in the up-and-coming eastern side of the city overlooking Oosterpark.

This former zoological university building can accommodate 564 guests in 168 twin and quadruple rooms with incredible views on the surrounding and en-suite bathrooms. We’ve got a wide selection of contemporary Privates, Twins and Shared Rooms with crisp white linen and lockable storage at great rates available.

    very nice place, with Restaurant, bar and nightclub. Facilities are amazing, staff is friendly and easy going. The location can be a little bit far but it is no big deal (if you like to walk). Nice park to relax behind the hostel.

    This was my first time staying in a hostel. I had a great experience, the atmosphere was very nice! I will have to say it is pretty pricey but definitely worth it.I felt pretty safe as a solo female traveling it's legit on the park. Also I should mention I didn't feel safe walking in at night just cause there really isn't any light. Other then that I had a good experience. I definitely would recommend!

    Everything about the hostel was great apart from the fact that towels cost €5 each to hire. I’m used to paying €5 at hostels but that usually includes a deposit which you get back at the end but not in this case. I hired 2 so I could wash and dry my hair so it didn’t feel like the best spent €10 of my life.

    The Generator was very good hostel to stay for two nights. I was a little disappointed that bar down stairs wasn’t open on week days. Overall I enjoyed my experience and would definitely recommend it. 25 min walk down to the city center.

    Funky hostel, but unfriendly staff and EVERYTHING has a fee. 5 euros for towel hire? And you're not allowed to eat your own food in the hostel? Not sure what kind of hostel has that rule. Comfy areas to relax but full of clique-y groups of dudes (but maybe that's just the type of boy-trip groups Amsterdam attracts).

    Great interiors but not a great place for solo travellers . Good for big groups, families or couples. A bit far from the city. By walk it takes 30min to reach to the centre.

    Zero atmosphere. Big business hostel converted from a hotel. Everything has a fee (even luggage storage). Rooms are nice and clean – imagine a hotel room but shared with a few others. Decent if you want a quiet and clean place to lay your head I.e. essentially a cheap hotel room. Would not recommend for solo travelers

    They cancelled my reservation without sending a notification email. When we got there we had to spend more money for one night and we had to pay for a shared room instead of the private room we booked.

    Staff was terribly rude, and the housekeeping is lackluster! I would consider another option.
