Bad things first: for us it was a bit difficult to get to the hostel; mainly this was because we were stupid, but for foreigners having to use 3 different s-banhs late at night can be dufficult. About the rooms, we had to share room with some other people. That was no problem, as the atmosphere at the hostel was... More

Booked this hostel very last minute. Rooms were clean and had large lockers for your kit. Within easy access via tram to some of the nightlife. Had a large bar which looked lively as we headed out. The only staff member we saw was the guy behind the desk who was friendly. Would stay again due to because cheap!

If you are looking for a very cheap place to stay in Berlin, this is the one. Berlin hostels are generally high priced so this one is an exception. For the price you pay you get everything you want. The rooms and bathrooms are generally clean, although the lockers in the rooms are just too small to fit anything in... More

Good cheap hotel - very clean, staff friendly, good facilities like cafeteria etc. but definitely not a hostel. Didn't spend much time there and was Fine as a stop gap and good value of money, especially in Berlin. But don't have the hostel vibe - very big and set out like a hotel, also seemed to be a lot of... More

My son is just back from a trip to Berlin with 6 friends and has asked me to put this review on Trip Advisor.

When travelling with 7 other lads anywhere we stay ends up being decent, but the generator was top notch! Great little gaming room with pool tables, air hockey etc and there's a nice beer garden outside the bar with plenty of space and table tennis! It's just a short tram ride into the center from the hostel and there's plenty... More

We stayed here for three nights. The people at the reception were really helpful. When we entered the rooms, the beds were not ready. The lounge for this hostel is really a good place to know other people. The bathrooms were not as clean as expected. But still for the price, it is a good stay option.

If you are solo or in few people I wouldn't recommend the generator from Berlin! There's lots of children and big groups hanging around the hole day. You'll have to wait for the elevator every time, no wifi in the rooms and the signal in the reception it's horrible. But if you are looking for something cheap just to stay... More

Would not recommend this hostel. Wifi doesn't work in the room. Laundry is expensive. It's in the middle of nowhere and takes a solid 20-30 minutes to get to the other side of Berlin where there is more going on. Lots of children staying there, not a good party/meet people atmosphere. The staff wasn't very friendly. They stopped serving food... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Generator is located in the ultra trendy Berlin district of Prenzlauer Berg. The area is great for shopping and sightseeing. If you’re a sports fan then the Velodrome hosts many sporting and music events, and guess what? We are only next door. The best way to see and do it all is by hopping on the S-Bahn or a tram into the city centre. This is an area that is lively and vibrant, you’ll never run out of things to do and see. When you get back to Generator, head to the bar and lounge and get yourself a well deserved drink or two and soak up the best entertainment for miles around. We’ve also got great beds for sleepy heads and of course you’ll be enjoying Berlin life in the most stylish and authentic surroundings. Choose from a great selection of rooms, from Dorms, to Quads, to Private en-suites with innovative mod cons. Fast and free Wi-Fi is all yours too. T ... more   less
