    Fabulous

    Generator was a great location so it made everything worth it!! The bathrooms were really dirty so make sure to bring shower shoes. Also they really make you pay for everything like storing your bags. It was fun with the bar though, a good was to meet people. The rooms were simple with a sink and the beds were pretty comfortable.

    Very Good

    12 Oct 2018
    Generator hostels are always amazing when it comes to social spaces and promoting social behavior. Therefore, the lobby and bar spaces where clean and aesthetically pleasing. Unfortunately this hostel failed when it came to the look and cleanliness of hallways and rooms. The elevator, hallways, and rooms all smelled of mildew. The Sheets we were given also smelled of mildew. We were given a private 6 bed room. In my opinion the cost of the room was not worth what we were given.

    The problem of this hostel is that it is not a real hostel. Paying 70 euros for a bed in a shared and mixed room with other people is not worth any nice atmosphere. The place itself is quite nice and big but after spending all that money for a spot to sleep on, it just makes you lose the interest in appreciating the space. Breakfast not included obviously, prices in the bar are high as well, even lockers are expensive. Not a good experience, expecting much more for all those money.
