Me and a friend stayed here for two nights whilst visiting friends who live in Berlin. We booked the hostel very late due to change in plans and therefore paid a little extra as it was high season and rooms were filling up. The hostel location is questionable. it is close to the town centre and the trams serving the... More

Great lads holiday to Berlin in January 2010. 3 of us came and to the hostel we went. A bit out of town but the metro is very close. The beds were comfy enough and the number of rooms are countless. For a hostel the facilities were up to scratch and the bathroom/showers were in good working & clean order.... More

A friend booked the accommodation and I must admit I feared what I was going to when I was told it was a £15 a night hostel... Pleasantly surprised though, first impressions was the place was clean but the room a little small, but we were just needing it for somewhere to sleep between sight seeing and partying! Breakfast was... More

This hotel is very easy accessible to Berlin Metro S line, Apart from that i do not see any good reason to stay here. First of all there is no internet apart from some are in the ground floor.

Dear PKumarNagaraju, Thank you very much for reviewing our hostel. We fully agree that the Wi-fi currently available to our guests is not acceptable and will be installing a new system in January. With regards to the kitchen, we are currently changing all the signage with regards to the kitchen as you correctly say that this should refer to a... More

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
