Property Description

Generator Amsterdam is a design hotel-hostel located in the heart of the city, overlooking Oosterpark. Guests can choose from shared dorms to private rooms, offering something for everyone. Housed in the former zoological university, Generator Amsterdam has transformed the original space creating an auditorium bar, library and basement nightclub. Complete with 24-hour reception, free wifi, cafe and bikes available for hire, Generator is a fun and affordable choice in Amsterdam.
The Generator Amsterdam Reception is open 24 hours a day with a duty manager always around and happy to help. It has flexible and spacious social areas, filled with creative design touches like glass-fronted elevators, a raised cafe and an outdoor terrace. We have turned the former lecture hall into an impressive chill-out lounge and bar, while the old library is now a relaxation and private events room, and the basement and cafe are now dining destinations.
Stay connected with free Wi-Fi and share those holiday snaps. In need of some clean clothes? The laundry is open 24 hours for washing, drying and ironing. A secure luggage room gives you more freedom to explore Amsterdam bag-free! The best way to explore Amsterdam is definitely by bike. Luckily for you, our hostel provides Vanmoof bikes for rental. Come to our travel shop for city tour tickets and more. You forgot your toothbrush or want a travel journal to keep track of your experiences? Visit our Gen-Store for exclusive Generator products. Let us help you make the most of your stay! Our hostel staff are incredibly friendly, multilingual and know the city inside out. They are on hand to help you with whatever info you need, just ask.
Ride your bicycle along cafe lined waterways, visit the most creative shops around De Pijp or just kick back by the canal and try a few cold Dutch beers. It's pretty hard to get stressed in Amsterdam, but having a good time is easy.
Generator Amsterdam is located in the up-and-coming eastern side of the city overlooking Oosterpark.
This former zoological university building offers accommodation from private to shared, and now even pods - with incredible views of the surrounding area. We have a wide selection of contemporary Privates, Twins and Shared Rooms with crisp white linen and lockable storage at great rates available. If you are in a Twin room, fluffy white towels are a complimentary extra. There is also one luxury apartment for six people with views of the park and a self-catered kitchen. Breakfast is available daily in our cafe space.

Very Good

Alright place to stay, about 40 minutes from the centre but its an easy walk. Main issue we had was we booked 2 beds in a mixed 6 person dorm and when we checked in they had put us in two separate dorms. Once we got that sorted the room hadn't been cleaned so we had to wait 30 minutes before we could get into the room which made things stressful as we had an activity booked at 3:30 and assumed we would have had plenty of time given the 2pm checkin time they gave us.

The shared six-bed dormitories are a great option if you're staying just a few days. The rooms are a bit small, but they have everything: comfortable bunk beds, showers with warm water, and clean toilets. Only complaint is that the top bed (which I slept in) doesn't have curtains. So as long as the lights are on, you can't really go to sleep. Otherwise, everything else was great.
