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.

    It is a wonderful hostel because it has a nice excellent staff. The hostel is extremely clean and safe. If I needed help, the friendly staff was there for me. The terrace was great and the bar was very nice. The jacuzzis were not functional which was a drawback in my stay, but overall my stay was comfortable and enjoyable… !

    It was the first time I stayed in a Generator Hostel, and I was not disappointed. It has the perfect balance between a Hostel and Hotel environment in a great location. The Terraza was one of the best things I will remember. The staff is very friendly, and the drink and food menu is impressive, and no need to say about the stunning view.

    Best beds of all the hostels I stayed at in Madrid. Very clean. Ladders seem to be downfall in most hostels but theirs made it easy to access the top bunk. Did not like the rooftop bar at all. Their menu was very American and their wine was overpriced. At most hostels the rooftop bar is where I met most people but there’s was not the atmosphere. If you’re traveling solo this is not the place.

    Very professional but may lack some of the traits of hospitality someone seeks in a hostel. Great room and the ensuite bathroom was separate from the shower which was really useful. The breakfasts buffet at 7 euros a day per person I believe is overpriced. Also, if you want to store your luggage for the day of your check out you need to pay for the lockers which fit about a large suitcase each...It resembles a hotel experience more but that's certainly not a reason to cross it out.

    I received an email to do the checkout online and the proposed time was 1 pm so i agreed. Only to be surprised when giving back my key card that I have to pay an extra 5euro if i checkout after 10am and that: YES it is not mentioned on the website the staff said... Like WTF 😒

    Had an okay stay - unfortunately not very hostel like and makes you pay for everything, including luggage. After a long day of travelling we weren’t even welcome to sit downstairs without paying for overpriced food and not allowed to relax up on the rooftop either (got yelled at by the staff, even though we are paying guests). IMO, unethical and should not be advertised as a hostel. If you want to spend a lot of money and are OK with the hotel vibe, then you may enjoy this place!

    We've stayed here before and had a pleasant experience, but this time the staff at the desk were quite rude to us and the room was NOT clean. There was a dirt mark on the sheets of one of the beds and there was literal **** and **** in the toilet that we had to use a toilet brush to clean. As far as hostels go, the place is nice and the rooms are nice, but this individual experience was not to standard. Actually quite grossed out.
