Down ancient backstreets, on cobbled streets, history waits to be discovered. 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.

    What a find!! We loved the atmosphere, the bar on location, the comfortable places to sit and write, the breakfast, the warm and welcoming staff, our reasonably priced private room. Grazie!

    Spacious room. 2 ensuite bathrooms! The bunk beds were comfortable. Light and power outlet for each bed. Less than a 15 minute walk to Rome's main train station. Just a 3 block stroll to Rome's best gelato store, G. Fassi. I went there twice.

    Generator Rome was a great home base for my Rome trip. Facilities were nice, and I appreciated having two bathrooms in my six bed room since I’ve been in several hostels with no bathroom at all. Friendly staff, nice rooms. When I checked in, the lady at the front desk gave me a map with tons of recommendations.

    While the hostel was clean and had all the basics you could ask for, it felt like they had unnecessarily high prices for things that shouldn't be that expensive. In contrast to a hostel in Milano at the same price, they offered one free dinner and free breakfast while the Generator charged 7 € for their breakfast. Also, the neighborhood was not one of the nicer in Rome but was close enough for us to the rest of the city.

    Nice vibe and atmosphere, but horrible beds and pillows - even in private suites. The A/C also did not work properly so our room was uncomfortably hot at night. I would personally choose a different accommodation with better central location and amenities if I returned to Rome.

    I would recommend Generator Rome to someone who wants the ‘hostel’ experience, but is not on a budget as it’s not cheap and other than it having a nice chic look, you are still sleeping in a bunk. Everything costs extra and not cheap extra - towels, storage of your bag, breakfast. You are also not allowed to bring your own food in which is disappointing. Staff are not as friendly as other hostels I’ve been too. Bonus of this hostel is location: close to train station!

    Wonderful hostel. The room was beautiful. Felt more like a hotel. Staff was great and very clean. However, I wouldn’t ever stay here again because of location. Easy walk to nice area but graffiti and rougher crowds covered the street at night. Felt very unsafe walking to and from here.

    To be honest I expected a better experience for the price. Reading other reviews I was already aware of higher than average costs for extras such as towels so this was not a problem and all round the facilities, design and location were lovely however I think the hostel itself is overpriced for what is ultimately offered and while some staff were lovely, I did find some staff members to be quite unhelpful and frankly rude when an issue was raised. For the price I would expect better service.

    You will be charged €3.50 extra a night for city tax which was on top of the price Hostelworld quoted. Then it’s €6 for luggage storage when you check out and with the food and drinks being really expensive here it ends up being a pricey stay for a “hostel”. My sheets were dirty with hairs on them and I asked for new ones and never got them. There’s no atmosphere at the bar and no other ones close by . Also it seemed like a sketchy area it’s at least a 30min walk from city centre. Would avoid!

    The first night, I was awakened by an older (possibly homeless) man running around in circles, screaming loudly, banging on the beds, and throwing things. I promptly left the room with several others. At the front desk, the staff told me they would not remove the man or call the police because they did not see anything. I asked for a room switch and they had nothing available. I left to find somewhere else to stay. It was midnight and it was difficult to find somewhere else.
