    Would highly recommend those wishing to visit Paris for a city break to stay at this hostel. Only an 18 minute walk from the main station, we had a lovely stay. Thank you!

    Generator is good. The bar / restaurant is a great place to chill out and the food is good. The location is good too - 15 minute walk to Gare du Nord and a short walk to a metro. The rooms are fine but basic. It’s not 100% clean in the corridors and rooms but it’s fine. The showers and toilets aren’t en suite but that wasn’t a problem for me.

    Compared to the Generators in Madrid and London, the location isn’t the best, but it is still close to a metro line. As always with generators it is more of a hotel vibe. If you’re a backpacker looking for cheap accommodation where you can easily meet people, this isn’t for you. For myself and my partner who aren’t looking to party or socialize too much and just want an affordable place to sleep, it was perfect.

    I was a big fan of any Generator hostel.. until this one! My room was super super nice, clean & awesome; but that's all. You can't eat or drink in the bar/restaurant, you can't make your own stuff, and problems started when I was once heading back with subway sandwich.. I was asked either to eat it on the lobby or outside, not in my room nor in the restaurant. Then it was even worse when I found that lockers are actually.. paid! 8 euros. I will never go back, will never recommend

    not a pleasant stay. they do not make the beds for the guests which wouldnt be an issue but is problematic when there are other people checking into your room at all hours of the night and they need to make the bed. another person in my room let a random non hostel guest into our room to use the bathroom and hung out with them in the room for over an hour. bed very uncomfortanle

    Dirty rooms that smelt AWFUL, snot all over the walls near my bed. Receptionist was rude and didn't program my card properly so had to go back up and down with all my luggage. Once I got into my room my bed had been slept in and there were dirty sheets... went downstairs to complain and all three staff members were rude and didn't offer any compensation, had to ask for clean sheets. Shower fills up so you're standing in a puddle of dirty water. Left a night early without getting my money back.
