    Amazing and authentic place with nice people. Probably the best hostel that ever visited. I hope more people will run their business in the same manner. My recommendations!

    We loved our stay at Generique Hostel! It is a great value for money! It is situated in a quiet yet central part of the city, the staff are very helpful, and the hostel is super clean! We couldn't have asked for more! P.S. Much love to George, who made us feel very welcome and at home!

    Everything was ok: cosy beds, free breakfast, location is pretty good too. But it's too hot there especially in the summertime, need A/C and a better ventilation in the bathrooms, they get too humid. And because there are just 2 bathrooms they are always busy in the morning.. Apart from that very home-like atmosphere, some staff are very nice, but some of them look a bit disinterested and tired. Wanted to say "c'mon wake up!" Maybe you should raise a salary to these guys?

    Extremely hard to find. Street names aren't visible. Easier would be to say that the hostel is right opposite the theatre behind the statue on the right. Very cute hostel with clean bathrooms and comfortable beds. During our stay in march it was basically empty except for two other guests and occasional staff. Breakfast consisted of 2 hard boiled eggs and two slices of toast with butter and jam. The nearest metro station is 20 minutes by foot. All in all average..

    The place is very hard to find. There is no sign and the door has a numeric lock for which I didn't get a code until checking in. I had to go to another hostel, from where they called the hostel to come and pick me up from in front of the door. There were also no lockers for valuables. The staff was nice though and the bed was wide and comfortable.

    I have travelled the world, stayed in many places and were never made feel so unwelcome. The hostel is really hard to find as well.

    Great beds with curtains and PowerPoints but the atmosphere was odd. Doesn’t really feel like a hostel. The living room was also a place where the staff worked, no reception desk etc. No lockers or locks on door but building security is good. Good neighbourhood. Good for short stay but average overall
