After having stayed in hotels in other cities, this felt a little different but it's a good place. Staff were brilliant, especially Vicent who really helped me plan my two day stay in Berlin (and seemed very happy to do so) so I could make the most of my time here and see different aspects of the city. Will definitely... More

Spent 3 nights in generator had a great time. Staff were excellent, especially Steff and Jack behind the bar. A bit too far from the city centre but overall a very nice hostel. Plus there is an amazing kebab shop round the corner! Filling out the word count now.

I have been to hostels all around Europe but I would say this is easily the worst I have ever been to. The walls are paper thin and the cleaning service is minimal, there was hair all over the bathroom sink and bins were rarely emptied so other guests decaying food would stink out the room. Staffing is also skeletal... More

Decent hostel, clean with good facilities! The staff are especially good, in particular Stef who works at the bar! She made our stay awesome so make sure you spend some time down at the bar. For that I'll definitely return!

It was a giant hostel, but very well-organized and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There is a specified locker for each person in the room. WiFi is available only in the ground floor. The breakfast was perfect. Washrooms and bathrooms were clean. But the washrooms are a bit tiny.

My brother and I stayed in a 4 bed mini dorm for 4 nights. The hostel itself was clean and the beds were comfortable, without too much noise carrying up from downstairs. The food from the bar was tasty, if a little small in portion size - the drinks were of a standard price for Berlin. The breakfast was probably... More

Very big. Not much around. Full of loud teenagers, seems new groups come every week. Apart for a couple who are exceptionally nice, staff are quite rude. They clean the dorms once a week. Homeless people come in to use the showers. Everything is a supplement. Lockers, towels, breakfast. Croissants and fruits are a supplement to the breakfast supplement. Not... More

Shared a private twin room with private bathroom. was excellent, clean very comfortable room with big window which made the room very light. The breakfast was good value for a city and the bar and fun areas where really cool. Would definitely stay again. Staff at reception were really helpful, especially Ben and Amy the welsh lady.

i'm going to start off with the bad, because the good greatly outweighs it. the rooms were kind of tight, with the beds being pretty close together. the food at the hostel was pretty expensive, but it is delicious food. the location sucks if you're trying to go to good clubs every night, though isn't bad for if you're sightseeing....
