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.

    Very pleasant stay. Very modern and felt much like a hotel to be honest. The triple beds were very steady and barely made any noises. It isn’t very central, but many tram stops are few minutes away.

    This hostel was beautifully situated on the edge of a park that has easy metro access. It was super easy getting around the city from the location, but it was also wonderful to just walk out the front door and sit on the grass to watch the ducks and herons. The cafe closed at different times each night (the last night I was there, it closed around 20:45), and there aren’t many other food options around the area after 21:00, so make sure to eat early.

    Great hostel, however I thought they would've put on events for people as I was solo travelling. This was my only downfall. I think its a great hostel. It's about 10 minutes away via tram/train, so if you are looking for something closer to the city this is not it. Takes about an 45 mins - an hour to walk to centraal station. Nice and clean inside the hostel and staff very friendly

    Great Hostel. The rooms are big and feel safe. Shower and Toilet in the room are clean and big. The lookers are very big so it’s easy to store all your things safe. Location was also cool. Right next to a pretty park and 7 min walk from a bus station that can take you downtown.

    The hostel is around 30-40 minutes walking from the city centre. The shower's sliding door in the en-suite was not closing properly; after a shower, the floor would be quite wet. The staff is generally ok, but told me the wrong bed number and when I got back to the hostel later, someone had thrown my stuff on the floor and took the bed.

    This hostel just seemed too busy to take care of guests well. It seemed like guests were constantly having issues with housekeeping and our roommates changed nearly every day. The location and facilities are wonderful but we didn’t like that the main guests were a huge group of ~18 year olds and that the bar area was randomly closed on a Saturday night when we specifically came back to go there and meet people! Lots of potential here but wouldn’t recommend currently, especially for the high cost

    Overall good hostel. Better for people traveling in couples/groups than solo travelers. Line was long to check in but staff was nice and helpful. Things were mostly clean but the shower floor gets flooded easily. Nice location with the park. Could have better storage options in the rooms than under the bed because it's easy to wake up people when pulling out the bins.
