Property Description

Generator Madrid is a design hotel-hostel located just steps from the Grand Via in the centre of the city. Guests can choose from shared dorms to private rooms, offering something for everyone. Complete with 24-hour reception, free wifi, restaurant and one of the best rooftop bars in the city, Generator is a fun and affordable choice in Madrid.

Located at the corner of Calle Silva and Calle San Bernardo, right off of the bustling Gran Via. The building is triangular in shape and was originally built in 1930 for residential use. After the Spanish Civil War ended, the area became much more commercially oriented, and the building was transformed into a parking lot with a gas station on the main level. The area has several representative buildings of the different times, with great historical and cultural value.

We are located in one of the best areas of Madrid, right near to some of the most renowned landmarks and attractions of the city such as Templo de Debod, Parque del Retiro and Puerta de Alcalá, amongst other interesting attractions that you can visit in Madrid.

We have several types of rooms in order to satisfy the needs of our guests and travellers. In this sense, we have both private and shared both accommodation options that will make the stay of our guests and travellers wonderful. On top of that, we have several common areas where the guests and travellers can get together and exchange past experiences and future plans.

    Great hostel, however the jacuzzi was out of service. Yummy but expensive pina coladas on the roof terrace. Awesome location close to the metro, grocery stores, shopping, etc.

    Dorms are very nice. Although the beds don’t have curtains it feels private. Everything was very clean. I booked this hostel because it was cheaper than some of the others but then there is a 5 euro charge for renting a towel and you have to pay per the hour to store your bag after the early checkout time of 10am so in the end it doesn’t end up cheaper. It was also really slow to do checkin and check out.

    Good hostel in a very central location. Rooms are nice and the environment is good. There is a terrace with a bar and a food truck (not cheap). There are 2 jacuzzis as well but they were out of order. Avoid the bar crawl at all costs, a tourist trap.

    The location is great and you get a nice bed and working ac for a good price but has really more of a hotel feeling to it. Meeting new people there is not really an option.

    It is a hotel not a hostel. No facilities so not worth the money from my point of view. Can’t cook or do washing, the common areas are not inviting etc. No control over who enters due to the restaurant/bar being public which didn’t feel safe. Room was fairly clean and separate toilet/shower was helpful. Housekeeping came everyday but they rushed and were not thorough. Location saved this property it is a 5 minute walk from the main centre which was very helpful.
