    Generator hostels are always clean, well equipped and secure. This one is well located and the atmosphere was quite welcoming. However they charge you for keeping your luggage post check out. After paying for hostel accommodation, you expect these services to be free. All in all a good place to be...

    The hostel is close to a couple of metro station. Staff is nice, but there are queues during check in hours. I was there at 4 and it was pretty busy. Take this into consideration if you are in a hurry, Rooms are clean, bathrooms... not that clean. And there was just one sink in the girls bathroom, it got busy. Great terrace and view. I think for a Paris hostel is great, it’s just a bit below what I expected from Generator.

    Value for money for that price. Location might not exactly be the trendiest spots in Paris(and hence less expensive), but the metro station is just across the street which can get you anywhere. The only couple of complaints I have is that the cost of breakfast is a wee bit too expensive and also if extra care is taken in keeping the washrooms more kempt, that would be great too. Cheers!

    Very Good

    The bedroom was ok, no complaints there. The bathroom on the first floor was a different story: only one of two showers was working and only one of the toilet stalls was unlocked and usable. It could have used a little bit more cleaning as well. Location was ok, close to the metro, but quite far away from tourist attractions to walk there. There's a bar, which is a plus.

    Very Good

    13 Oct 2019
    Loved the place. The EUR 6 per towel very overpriced. The lockers were also a rip-off. Came in 15 mins late to pick up stuff from our locker, instead of being charged for an extra hour, we were charged for an extra full 24 hours, an extra EUR 8. When we contacted reception, they said 'We are not the ones who decided so', and also admitted to receiving similar complaints from other guests.

    Check in was easy, location is great and that's where it ends. Rooms are dirty, bathrooms even worse. You pay 60$ for a night and you don't get towels which you can rent for 6€, also no slippers provided. It says linen included but when i arrived to room i didn't even had a pillow. For such a price it's really dissappointing. Maybe other Generators are better but the Parisian one is a mess. The good side is people, friendly staff and location which is uncomperable to others.

    The one bathroom on first floor is not very clean and lots of things are broken. Second floor bathroom was much better, whole new world. Few things broken in our room including a shelf for our bed which is just sitting in the corner of the room, mentioned to reception twice, once when they were checking the room but they just left it there. No common room so no where to eat your own food. Building is nice, seems new. Deff won’t stay like that if they don’t start cleaning properly.
