But Rome isn’t just a museum; it’s a city showcasing food, art and street culture scenes to rival any other European capital. Experience it at Generator Rome; once a beautiful 19th century building, it’s a short walk from the Colosseum and Roma Termini station.

Generator is located in Rome’s Esquilino District (known for it’s traditional old school vibe). Sitting atop one of the city’s famed seven hills in one of the oldest areas of Rome, Generator is situated right across the street from the Mercado dell’ Esquilino, a food market showcasing the wide variety of Italy’s fresh local produce. The property is a 5-minute walk from the Termini station and Colosseum Amphitheatre.

At Generator Rome, the interior is a tapestry of Roman heritage with 67 intricately styled private or shared en suite rooms. Set over seven floors, the hostel includes a deli-style café, bar and chill-out lounge.

    I have stayed previously at generator Rome and also for one night on this short trip. For me it’s easily hands down Rome’s no1 hostel. Amazing location..value for money & the staff are second to none. I like this place I’m back next week after I get married !!!

    I had one of the most amazing experiences in my whole Eurotrip! I was traveling alone (I’m Mexican) but the first night I made a friend from Argentina, one from China, one from Brasil and one from Portugal, all traveling by themselves; so we went out and have a blast that night, next day we visited time together and the solo trip became an incredible friend trip! Thanks for everything!

    This hostel was perfect for my one night stay in Rome. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. Room was very clean, and I loved the option of a private, 3-bed room for myself and 2 friends. Only 4 minute walk from train which was great, and a quick walk to the metro. The price was really good for what we got! Only complaint was that it's a little far from the main attractions, but as long as you're willing to take public transportation this shouldn't be an issue.

    Boutique-hostel with a great design and a perfect location. It’s just 10 minutes walking from Termini station and 20 minutes from Coliseum. It also has great facilities, such as 24 hours reception, lockers, bathroom inside the rooms and comfortable beds. That was my second time on a Generator Hostel and it will definitely have a 3rd one!

    Had a great stay at generator- staff were so helpful and friendly and quick to sort out any issues. The room itself was spotless and bathrooms cleaned daily. Downstairs bar area was nice but very quiet (to be expected at this time of year however). Met a few people and had a good time going out with them. I’m sure in the summer this would a great place to meet people as a solo traveller. The area itself is very close to termini station and other metro stops, and a 20min walk to the colosseum!!

    Very average stay, nothing too exciting stood out but maybe that was just my experience with some roommates who weren’t willing to socialize. It was pretty spacious and the beds were pretty standard. The rooms were clean and the staff were great! Nothing wrong with it, just not the most social environment (in my room at least).

    Good location near termini (but not a very good street zone) and great cleanliness. Quite big rooms. Great breakfast for a reasonable price. Security is good. Staff is rude, specially the ones at the bar. The dont allow bringing your own food but dont have kitchen open for public or food at the bar available on weekends. They charge for luggage keeping ( 2 euros for 1 hour, 4 euros for 6 or 6 euros for 24) and 5 euros for towel.

    One important thing is this hostel is out to suck money whenever possible. Towel, baggage storage comes with a price especially baggage where most hostel is free in fact only generator all branches charge money. So say u arrived early b4 the checkin time u paid once max 6€ then after check out u need to leave luggage again another 6€. They have different size locker if you choose a wrong size n luggage can close ask the staff for help they refuse to help n say u need to pay again for a bigger
