    It was a pleasure to stay at Generator in Paris. It was light, comfortable and very clean. The atmosphere was also very upbeat. The stuff was super friendly and helpful - I got my phone stolen in the subway and when I rushed back to the hostel, their supervisor Tarik and the crew calmed me down and helped me contact my friends and family. They did their best to made sure I got this all sorted, which was extremely appreciated.

    More of a hotel rather than a hostel, very nice place to stay. Staff were friendly and accommodated needs in a timely manner. Very nice rooftop patio with great view, perfect for sunsets. Less than 1 minute walk to metro which provided access to the city and other locations, however there is not too much around hostel, apart from places for dinner/breakfast. Would recommend to others staying in Paris.

    Great hostel with lovely rooms, staff were nice and it is in a good secure location. The only issues I had was it was 6€ to rent a towel which I thought was quite expensive and also I returned to the hostel with left over pizza which I was told I couldn’t take to my room which was annoying but overall a good stay!

    It is great hostel, but don't keep your money and valuable things in the locker. One of the locker was broken and 2300€ was taken from Brazilian guy.

    awesome place, nice restaurant-bar with an easy going menu. A little bit far but no big deal you can easily get to the hostel by metro.

    It was a clean/ appealing hostel. If you’re traveling from abroad make sure that you call/ email and ASK what proper documents you need to check in! They had not informed me at all!!!! I was lucky enough to find it in a hurry by accident! The staff were not empathetic when I told them that I wasn’t informed of the documents that would be needed to check in! The bar/ terrace closes @ 10pm on weekdays which I find is extremely early!

    Felt like a hotel- super big and very clean. Location was far from most things (but accessible by metro) and I felt unsafe walking around it at night. Pretty good for the price at last minute though.

    Overall this is a very nice and big hostel. I’d say the toilets need to get checked and cleaned more, I watched one guy sign off saying he cleaned it without going in. When I checked in at 9pm the bed I was supposed to be in wasn’t made. Restaurant is overpriced and food wasn’t great, and do not get the breakfast, it wasn’t worth it.
