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 GenStore 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 is 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 can accommodate 564 guests in 168 twin and quadruple rooms with incredible views on the surrounding and en-suite bathrooms.

From a solo female traveler who have been staying in hostels for the 2 and half months POV. The pros: did find the facility to be pretty clean, lightings were good in the room, and bed was clean. You do have to make your own bed but it’s pretty easy, you just throw on the sheet. There’s a beautiful park right where the hostel is. That’s where I spent most of my time. The bathroom and shower is inside the room. They do bike rental which was pretty cheap, 8 euros for about 4 hours. Cons: the description s

The rooms was incredibly small. I’ve stayed at a lot of hostels and never experienced anything like it. The bathrooms stalls and sinks and showers are all inside the rooms (sinks are in the room itself). This can be convenient, but makes for a lot of extra noise. You have to make your own bed and bring your own lock for the safe. The hostel does have a nice atmosphere overall and plans lots of events for guests. The location is really good and has a local vibe.

just in the beginning of my stay that I stayed waiting in the door and people in the reception watching me but not opening the door for me wasn'ta very good firstimpression for my check in, then when they opened they saw my face that wasn't very pleasant due to unnecessary waiting outside, and this didn't make me happy at all, then after I didn't want to be very kind due to no respect and because they were doing something else to look busy for not opening the door right away when I arrived.
