    I got a little disappointed with my booking! I paid it to stay on Generator Hostel, but when I got there, there was a Tag saying that due the COVID all the guests would be relocated to other Hostel (FREEHAND HOSTEL), in the other words, I was paying to stay in another Hostel instead the Generator Hostel...! I thinking that they should have warned about this before booked the hostel! The Freehand hostel is well located, clean, good atmosphere. Tip: *Fix the sink and bath dripping*

    I arrived for my 30th birthday and found out that the Generator was actually closed due to COVID. I received no messages prior alerting me to this, when I arrived I was told that my booking was going to be at their sister location Freehand Miami. The staff was pretty decent but the living quarters definitely could have been better. The tub took 3 hours to drain and most of the plug outlets did not work efficiently. Many fellow guest were privileged and bigots and the menu to restaurant was bad.

    Book to this hostel showed up to the front door chain and padlocked with instructions on the door to travel to the other hostel. It'd be wonderful if hostelworld would stop booking them if they are not accepting any reservations the actual building is closed. The hostel they will send you to is freehand Miami which is a great hostel but if you have a lot of luggage it's real inconvenient.

    If you read current reviews (on various sites), there is a recent wave of bad reviews. The Generator is still accepting reservations, but then switches you to another hostel without your authorization. I had a 4 bed room booked, then had this canceled suddenly and received an email from another hostel confirming an 8 bed room. This hostel is rated lower and supposedly not as good. How is this okay or good business practice? And neither place is answering the phone after many attempts. Awful.

    This hostel is inconsiderate. I booked here and the same day of arrival i was sent a email stating it was closed and that they would move me to freehand hostel no questions ask. as i read others reviews i found out this has been done several times....i also found out at free hand many was done the same. WHY ADVERTISE THE GENERATOR ON THE HOSTEL SITE A OPTION TO CHOOSE AND STAY.....THAT IS SO WRONG!!!
