    I was in Hamburg for a weekend with my friend and we had a great time at the Generator Hostel. The location is perfect with the main station so close by and we liked the property itself as well. Our first impression was super, the reception/lobby room (with a Café in it) looks very modern. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful for any kind of questions we had. We stayed in a 6 bed female dorm. It was clean and like the common rooms furnished nicely plus the beds were super comfortable 👍🏼

    We stayed in a group of 8 ranging from ages 24-52. The room was perfect apart from the shower being tiny but luckily, there was a communal power shower and bathroom outside the room and on each floor. The bar was good and so were the chicken wings. A little bit over priced but we didn’t use it too much. Location was perfect and lots of places to eat around. The bus, s bahn and u bahn were all outside too. Brilliant weekend !!

    Everything perfect, but the “bathroom” inside the room which was added to the room as a plastic big box!

    I unfortunately had to leave this hostel early due to reasons beyond both mine and the hostels control. Regardless, my one night stay here was great. My bed was very comfy and the rooms are nicely renovated. I did not get to go to the bar they had there but it looked really nice too. It's opposite the hauptbahnhof so it is also a good place to stay if you are travelling to and from hamburg by train.

    Nice hostel at a great location. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Beds comfy and clean! The bathrooms in the dorms aren’t very spacious though... all in all, great value for your money.

    Was able to check in half an hour earlier than their usual time (2 pm), staff was super friendly. Breakfast-buffet costs 6,50€, didn't try that tho. Doors between compartments are all key-card-locked and there are two Lifts to get you up and down. There are, however, five or so steps leading from the sidewalk into the Hostel, and the bathroom in my dorm had a pretty high step leading into the cabines, so def keep that in mind if you need easy access. Overall very nice!

    It’s not the safest of areas for a solo female traveller, if you go out in the evening homeless ppl approach you a lot and there’s very shady people around as the hostel is right next to a known dangerous street. I saw someone get assaulted/ injured from my window one of the nights. Generally I just wouldn’t recommend especially if you’re wanting to meet other travellers, it’s not a social place.
