    I had an amazing experience with Generator Hostel in Hamburg. It was my first time visiting Germany, and the staff were so helpful and welcoming, I felt quite comfortable. The accommodations are comfortable, clean, and cozy. The staff desk is open 24/7, and were always on hand to help with any question or concern. I even saw one of the friendly staff help an older man walk slowly from the entrance to the elevator; the staff were some of the best I've seen and absolutely generous.

    Decent hostel, very up to date and modern. The ensuite felt like I was on a space ship. Right outside the train station which was nice, but with train stations comes a few odd balls on the streets. Lots of restaurants nearby in the other direction and there's a bar.

    Good location close to the train and bus station and not too far from the attractions of Hamburg. Unfortunately said location doesn't seem to be in the best part of the city, especially at night, so something to be aware of. Comfortable beds and rooms and nice they had a number of outlets/USB ports for each bed.

    The hostel is generally good. Secure, quiet rooms, a nice reception area and a good location. However the en-suite bathrooms and showers are tiny!!!! Especially the shower, it can be even dangerous to attempt to have a shower in there because anyone over 5 foot all is gonna struggle. Luckily there was a seperate bathroom on the floor which I ended up using instead

    Was located very close to bus station, which made it very convenient for my late-night arrival. Beds were comfy enough, and shower and bathroom in the room were small and cramped. Lockers are big boxes that slide under the beds, and they didn't close properly, so my lock didn't fit. Overall an okay stay, staff was pretty friendly.

    Good location, reasonable hostel but pretty quiet. Did a pub crawl through the hostel and there were only 2 of us until we met up with other groups. So turned out to be better than expected

    Rooms are very nice and clean but in terms of other facilities, they do tend to try and rip money off you. For example, Bring your own padlock so you can lock up your things in the locker, otherwise they will charge you 3 euro for a lock.

    I was just there for one night. Is not a cosy hostel and is right near the Hauptbahnhof which can be good practically but personally I prefer local spots. The staff were helpful but did not show the kitchen (was there one?) or anything when I arrived so even to make a tea was complicated. If you want no frills, check in and check out stay this is your space. For more personal, local feeling... this is not your place.

    The room was nice and clean, hostel basically had everything I needed. Not the place to meet fellow travellers as a solo traveller tho.
