    Perfect location but quite pricy considering the amount you pay and you still don't even a towel. Very comfortable bed and great to have the plug to charge your phone. A big plus!

    The hostel is very very close to central station. There are lot of affordable eatbuy options inside the central station. The room was neat and clean. We took a 2 hours free guided tour on the 2nd day provided by them .It should be must taken on the first day of your trip to know about the history and most significant areas to visit.I should have done it on the first day itself. We also took 2 hour harbour boat tour. Always remember to ask about the preferred languages before buying tickets.

    I always stay here when I'm in Hamburg - it is convenient for the railway station and the coaches (Flixbus etc) - though the area is not so salubrious. The price is variable, sometimes you get a good deal, sometimes it is dear. Beds are comfortable with led light, USB outputs and an electricity socket. Lockers under the beds are big. I had to register twice - once with Hostelworld and again with Generator which was annoying as I was just about to start my trip, but otherwise highly recommended

    Don't get it why they don't have proper bathrooms but some kind of plastic "boxes" for shower and wc instead... Our room was quite warm since it was a hot day outside, they might consider bringing up air con or at least a fan.

    Overall, the one night experience at Generator was a good one. The facilities are modern and up to date and in a good location and there is decent security on the property. My only areas of feedback are that the bed covers were not clean and still had hairs from the last guests and that there was no soap in the bathrooms (if travelers do not bring their own hand soap, this impacts the cleanliness of the environment). Overall a decent experience for a one night stay.

    Generator was in a good location and the hostel itself felt clean and pretty new. Breakfast was expensive for what you got though. The bar was dead on a Thursday night which was a bit disappointing and the bathroom was the smallest bathroom I’ve ever been in, it felt like an airplane. Overall, it was good for 1-2 nights but I couldn’t have managed much longer in such small accommodations.

    The washrooms were too small to use. Moreover, there were no bins provided in the rooms.

    Too many massive groups staying. If I knew this, I would’ve stayed away. Took so much away from the experience. The bar left something to be desired. Zero events planned for the guests. The food at the bar is decent for the price. The “chill out” area upstairs is nice. I would absolutely not recommend for a solo traveler.

    No cooking facilities and food made by the hostel is expensive. Loud, people coming in and out of room drunk in the night. Close to train station is useful.
