Don't let the word hostel put you off ! This place is clean,tidy,modern and well staffed. Great choice for breakfast , well stocked cheap bar. For groups or party to Berlin , this place can't be beat. Rooms very clean. The Only down side is that rooms are very small

It was my mistake, should have spent a couple of more bucks as this is an old style gigantic hostel without any quiet space. When you're young and wanna party, this is the place as it's full with people alike. I found the bathrooms well dated and far from clean, little privay and small.

This is the third geynerator I have stayed in. It has a kewl vibe. As far as hostels go I would say it is above average. It is clean, the bed was comfortable. I stayed in an eight person mixed room. It is at the beginning of renovations so future improvements are on the way. What made this hostel above... More

Our time at Generator Berlin was greatly enhanced by our charismatic receptionist friend Ronny. He is the most helpful and generous receptionist we have ever had the pleasure to meet. Amenities were average, but the staff is above par. Also, the hostel is conveniently located right next door to an S-bahn stop which makes entering the city very easy (as... More

This Generator Hostel is not as modern as other Generators I have stayed in before. It is a little further out from the main centre of Berlin. But, is only a short tram ride away. Staff were really helpful/friendly. The room was okay, felt a little dark/cold, but I think that was because I was expecting a more modern Generator... More

Berlin as a city was fantastic but our short stay was all but ruined by this hostel. Upon arrival we waited in a 1 hour queue to check in. As previous reviews have reinforced it is a hostel inundated with large school groups. Due to a faulty pin machine I was told to pay in cash and "hurry up because... 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.
