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.

    Really good place to stay in an amazing location in the park with a very chilled out atmosphere with plenty of activities nearby! Loved our stay and my partner loved it so much he proposed with the amazing view of the park. Will definitely be coming back!

    Everything was great, except for breakfast arrangement. They need to organize it better and let all the staff know the information about it, so they all can give the same feedback to costumers. Other than that, i had a wonderful time during my stay

    Had a great time with my mates, the hostel was easy to find and in a great location backing on to a park. We were stranded there for an extra day as our flight was cancelled due to weather conditions and we managed to get another night in the same room for a fair price which was very helpful. Would definitely go again!

    The generator is in a great location, close to public transport which is easy to use to get into the city. I cannot fault the staff here, especially the male receptionist that was there both evenings of my stay. Clean and sanitary facilities, decently priced bar and food. Only suggestion would be to somehow include an area where guests can cater for themselves eg a kettle or a microwave.

    The hostel was so lovely, modern and clean. Perfect for my first time in a hostel. However since staying in more hostels I think more facilities could be provided it’s strange to not have a kitchen to make food, no free towels, and the location wasn’t that close to be centre. Overall I think it’s perfect for a group of friends but not so great as a solo traveller

    Nice beds, kind patient staff. The bar downstairs let us down otherwise would have got higher rating but felt like we got ripped off for a breakfast at 12 euros a dish and the breakfast came out in tiny bowls. Happily pay 12 euros for a full cooked breakfast but a bill for three beers and 3 breakfasts being over €55 seems alot for what was given to us.

    Great cafe/bar with great food and evening entertainment. Lots of areas to relax and great for meeting people. Room was clean but could have been better (quite dusty on the top bunk) and sadly wasn't cleaned for the 3 nights I was in the room, and someone I was sharing with had left quite a mess that was never cleaned up. I did tell reception this but nothing was done about it. Other than this though service was great and would definitely stay there again.

    Hello, I booked this hostel well in advance for myself and a group of friends. We were very excited to visit Amsterdam for the very first time, yet due to the current coronavirus pandemic, we were unable to travel from the United States because of travel restrictions. Despite being unable to physically travel, your administration refused to issue a refund or simply give a credit for future use. Had we been able to travel, we would have been stuck abroad and unable to return home.
