Generator har managed to make a great social atmosphere, but at the same time have dead quiet sleeping areas by night. This makes it a good alternative not depending on your mood of the day or if you need to get up early. The staff and was welcoming and helpful, and always smiling. The location is mostly great, in the... More

Though our room was lovely (a little on the small side, but I don't mind that), while we were in Berlin, the weather was very sticky. The big windows in our room had signs on them, that said they weren't to be opened. This meant that the room turned into a sticky mess, almost unbearable for long periods of time.... More

The rooms were very basic, which made it clean as there was nothing to them. The beds were comfy and had enough space considering they were bunks. I had a problem with the motion lighting in the shower as it isn't set close enough to the shower so you end up in pitch black during the shower and then trying... More

Friendly staff with great service! Room size was relatively small but beds were comfortable and bathrooms clean. Great bar upstairs with a good atmosphere. Awesome location and value for money. Will definitely recommend to others!

A group of us stayed in the Generator Hostel in Berlin in February of 2014. The Hostel was really nice as it was spacious, clean and the staff were really helpful. The standard was so high especially for the price that we payed. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone who is thinking of travelling to Berlin!

The rooms are cheap and the staff friendly. However if you have an early wake up call and want to sleep before it this hostel is not the place for you. The guest start loudly partying at 10pm and don't stop until 4am when the bar closes.

Silent single room with windows with a view to the parking. Entrance and turning on the light by a plastic card! Breakfast is 5 euro and it is ok. There are several benches in front of the entry for loud teenagers at evenings and nights.

I actually want to call this a hotel, as it is so much better than a lot of hostels I have been at. Generator Hostel is a great concept and it quite reminds me of the nordic choice comfort hotels, except generator hostel does it so much better. It's target audience is off course the younger generation, but there is... More

I stayed there only for one night. The hostel was clean and had good beds and the stuff was very friendly as well. But with the bar in the Hostel it was really loud during the whole night. But I personally don't like this huge hostels style. Everything is super fancy but it is also quite unpersonal. When I was... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You’ll find Generator in the heart of the city, in the district of Mitte which is one of Berlin’s oldest districts. You couldn’t get a better location if you tried. Great for everything that is a must see in this great city as well as the nightlife. Oranienburger Strasse has become Mitte’s hub for nightlife, galleries, art, cafes and restaurants. The hostel sits in the centre of this grand street and is a terrific hangout for locals and travellers. Once you have seen and done it all head back to Generator, the perfect place of refuge, with great beds for sleepy heads, a bar and lounge that serves the best drinks and entertainment for miles around 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 like a USB port and your own LED light for late night reading. Fast and free Wi-Fi is all yours too. To get the most out of your stay visit the travel shop and our city experts will help you devise an itinerary that will take you to all the hidden treasures this dynamic city has to offer. You’ll definitely need more than a day to explore this city, it’s a culture vultures delight. We’ll see you there soon. ... more   less
