Property Description

Generator Amsterdam is a design hotel-hostel located in the heart of the city, overlooking Oosterpark. Guests can choose from shared dorms to private rooms, offering something for everyone. Housed in the former zoological university, Generator Amsterdam has transformed the original space creating an auditorium bar, library and basement nightclub. Complete with 24-hour reception, free wifi, cafe and bikes available for hire, Generator is a fun and affordable choice in Amsterdam.

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.

    I loved this hostel so much, the staff were genuinely helpful and sincere all the time, and were fun to talk to. Cosily situated in the lovely Oosterpark not far at all from the city centre but tucked away enough so that its peaceful. Beautiful at night and the breakfast is nice. 10/10 wonderful hostel and excellent value for money !

    Beautiful location and decor. I would stay here again and recommend to all of my friends. The only thing I would change would be access to a kitchen. The restaurant was quite expensive and you're not allowed to bring your own food. Other than that it was perfect, stylish, clean, and staff were excellent.

    Like I said in another review, great hostel. The best in Amsterdam. It's right in the park, pretty close to the center but has enough "attractions" in the area as well: zoo, de pijp. Also really cool of them to only use the rooms at 50% capacity because of covid. The place to go when in Amsterdam

    The hostel was great once I found it, everything is clean and new and the beds are very comfortable. The location is OK, not central by any standard and the hostel world directions gave me a tram number that didn't exist.

    Overall, this place is great. It's well worth the extra that you pay. It's right in the park, and the facilities are nice if you want to stay and work. Some of the spaces could use a more thorough cleaning but overall staff was professional and very friendly

    Friendly staff, nice international environment, very cool chill/study room. I wish there were some more options for longer stays (e.g. € 1 instead of €2 for the washmachine/dryer; a simple kitchen with a fridge and stove), many customers are in between houses, or newcomers looking for a permanent apartment or room to rent. But I totally understand and respect the business model. Recommended!

    I asked many questions regarding the city, places to visit, museums and restaurants, but the staff wasn't able to help me at all - they don't know the city and don't seem interested in it enough to learn about it. Also they say they only rent half of the bed capacity in the rooms (because of covid), but I stayed in an extremely small room with all the beds rented. The location on the other hand is very good.

    Our room did not have electricity, our Door lock was forced, somebody from the stuff got into our room and we do not know why. That is why we checked out before the date. We felt insecure with the people working at generator. My worst experience ever.
