    Very nice location close to the beautiful area of La Villette and Belleville. The facilities were modern and clean, the bar/restaurant is open for resting and chilling which is very enjoyable, staff is nice and bonus : I had a nice view on the Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre from my room !

    HUGE Hostel - 10 floors, dorms and private rooms (so families staying too) & probably the biggest most commercial hostel I've stayed in. So the basics are amazing, more like a hotel - super clean spacious rooms, bar, cafe area, even a nighclub downstairs! BUT, it's so big, it feels impersonal. Not really a common area where you all lounge around and chat - the hostel lacks this - it's all very separate, even in the cafe & bar I couldn't get a sense of even if some general public were there too!

    Excellent but wasn’t expecting to pay 6€ for towels! Paying for breakfast is one thing as it’s not a necessity but towels are needed, you should advertise that people have to pay for towels so they will bring their own!

    Very Good

    All in all, pretty good stay. We were entirely without water for over 6 hours, and without hot water for about 24 and were not offered a refund, discount or apology. It was a clean location, safe, but as I was unable to brush my teeth or flush a toilet for over six hours and then not able to shower I would give it a lower rating.

    It wasn't my first time there but this time I got a bunch of problems with the check in because Generator canceled my reservation because they have a really bad platform that blocked my card because they tried to do multiple charges, I lost my reservation because of that and the website didn't help me so I had to book again(spend more money and time) directly with the hostel but they don't accept cash and they have already blocked my card so it was a really bad experience. I am not returning

    Staff were helpful but always seemed reluctant to help as if I was a burden, in saying this some were a lot better then others. Toilets were stinking and they weren’t always stocked with toilet roll. Beds comfortable and rooms kept clean though.

    Stayed only for a night but couldn't wait to leave! The condition of the toilets and shower on my floor was appalingly bad. It stinks of p*ss, puddles of dirty water on the floor, filthy sinks, hand dryer didnt work. It's as though i was using a public toilet at a bus station! Having two piss stained toilets and shower for the entire floor is just not acceptable for a franchise brand like Generator. Sort yourself out!
