    Generator is an aesthetically creative space that is a unique experience of it’s own. Immediately was greeted with warm welcomes in the lobby. My room was upgraded, (shoutout to John) with a fabulous view of the Washington Memorial. I was assured that someone would be at the desk 24/7, and that I was taken care of. Metro is only a short walk away!

    The Generator is in a convenient spot in town to central DC--was about a 20 minute walk to GWU and close to many international embassies. Easily accessed from dupont circle metro. Staff were extremely nice and genuinely wanted to be helpful and talk. I stayed during the pandemic and felt that the procedures followed were appropriate and made me feel safe! This is probably the best value for money while still providing a clean, pretty atmosphere in central DC.

    Was skeptical because there were so few reviews, but I have no conplaints. Great overall experience. It’s an actual hotel with some rooms coverted to shared bunk rooms. Loved the atmosphere and vibe, free coffee in the morning. Bunk bed nook was awesome. Very clean, quiet. Will definitely stay again. Enjoyed it better than Duo hostel.

    I guess it depends what you’re looking for. This just wasn’t for me. I understand COVID restrictions, but there was absolutely no type of community in this hostel. We had to request our room to be clean, as 4 girls were sharing a very small space. Which, doesn’t seem to be in line with physical distancing currently recommended. I stayed 3 days and it was cleaned once. Staff was always friendly though. And location is good. But if you’re looking to meet people and enjoy DC, this isn’t it.
