    It's a little far out from the main a 'tourist areas', however, it's approx €9-10 in a uber so nit too bad. Metro just across the street and plenty of shops/pharmacies/places to eat in the neighbourhood. The staff were incredibly friendly, we showed up early on arrival and there was no hassle in checking in. The rooftop bar is also gorgeous with amazing views and pretty chill. Extremely clean too. Would defo say again.

    The location was fine and cleanliness was good for the attached toilets, but the lobby toilets were so dirty. As for the bunker lockers, they didn't come with locks. The centralized lockers had to be rented. Towels weren't cheap. Staffs were amazing. Overall, it was more than an average one according to me.

    Generator Paris is an all rounder that delivers everything you need - comfortable beds, a decent location and a stylish space. However, the extras that make a hostel really awesome for young travelers weren’t there. Although there’s a bar area and rooftop bar, there lacked a social vibe conducive to meeting other people. At times, we found staff a bit impatient with our queries but were generally very helpful. The location is right next to a metro station so that’s a huge bonus. Decent stay!

    - Staff were so uninterested on arrival, even after I tried to make some conversation I got nothing back. just "your room is on floor 6" - ZERO vibes at this place, if you are a solo traveller do not go here. It's just a hotel with bunk beds. - The rooftop bar view is okay at best, full of people from outside the hostel. - The area of the 19th is not safe I would not recommend staying there. They do have security on the door at night but still isn't a great walk home from the station.
