Stayed here when inter railing with all my mates, the place is a mad house where the party is 24hr, everything you want in Berlin with it being close to sites etc as well as there being a good on site bar. Perfect for a group trip etc not so much the romantic kind! The staff have a nightmare task... More

I thought I was way too old to stay at a youth hostel (in my late 30's), but I didn't feel too out of place here. People of all ages were staying at this mega-hostel, which has a very corporate feel to it (in a good way). There was even a family with two small kids staying here in a... More

Well located, very clean, comfortable and modern. Doesn´t have a kitchen, it has laundry room, restaurant, excellent common areas and you can pay for the breakfast. It's not that expensive. Recommended

Having stayed in Generator hostels in some other countries in Europe, I chose this place expecting the same standardized facilities they have everywhere. Pleasantly, it did live up to the expectations in every count except for the bathroom. I stayed in a girls' dorm which did not have an attached washroom. (The other Generator hostels had one). The girls' washroom... More

I'm no expert on hostels having only ever stayed in 1 or 2, but I booked this one on a friend's recommendation when I needed to sort out accommodation for 24 people for a stag do. I have no complaints whatsoever, and the 23 others seemed perfectly happy too. Rooms were clean, beds were comfy, bathrooms served their purpose. Bar... More

I stayed here recently and it's a very nice hostel; super clean and modern. I stayed in a private room this time around and it was a very nice room indeed.

It was clearly evident that a lot of work had gone into designing the hostel. It was very well decorated and very modern. I really liked the new modern bunk beds with their own built- in lights and electric sockets. I really liked that there was a bar and cafe there, plus the location was excellent! I would definitely stay... More

Stayed in a couples room, was clean and basic. Very cool vibe and bar, 2 for 1 drink voucher on arrival, and friendly and helpful staff... Good internet and good breakfast, too! Would definitely go back and also recommend Generator to friends visiting Berlin.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
