Property Description

Generator Madrid is a 5 story building with a 3 story ‘attico’ (approximately 6161.01 m2 in total) located at the corner of Calle San Silva and Calle San Bernardo, right off of the bustling Grand 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 Alcala, 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.

    Honestly this is an awesome hostel that has a ton of amenities for anyone staying there. The rooms are secure and clean. They have two bars, one downstairs and one upstairs. Not cheap, but not expensive either. Food is really good but I only ate there once. The atmosphere is really "clubby", so it always facilitates meeting others and socializing. The Pub-Crawls though are amazing and great deals. Takes care of entrance and lines. Was a TON of fun and really got to see the nightlife of Madrid.

    This is a great place for a great price. I got unlucky with a giant school group being there during my stay, but the hostel is super clean and really interesting aesthetically. They will overcharge you for small things (renting a towel is 5€) but overall it’s nicer and cheaper than a hotel!

    Someone robbed me in my stay in this hostel (money and even my medicines). When I told the staff their response was go to the police, we can not do anything, which is inconceivable. The rooms were fine but I missed curtains on the beds for more privacy. The hostel has no atmosphere, a restaurant operates below, so it is not a place to meet people. Be careful with your stuff and money in this hostel.

    they kicked me out of the near empty common area at 8:30 AM because it was reserved for people that purchased the overpriced breakfast. the area is huge and there were barely any people there. its the only area in the hostel that has tables to work. i had to go back into my dorm and upset the others because i had to get on voice calls for work. the staff is very unfriendly, people barely speak english, they try to ripp guests off wherever they can. ex: 1,50 for a small water.
