I actually visited this place just before 2013's Christmas (not recently) and I loved there. It was the first ever hostel I stay at in Europe. I stayed in a dorm, met some awesome people there and we still remain friends. The dorm itself was awesome as well but the bathroom was a little bit 'tiny' - they do have... More

It's a nice comfy place. Tidy and safe. Helpful and kind staff, great possibility to use the locker before check-in or after check-out to use all your time in the city. Nice to have breakfast in place. Simple but nice design everywhere, great atmosphere in the common areas. Only disadvantage is the very small bathroom. However, it's still functional.

Staff really kind, helpful and friendly. This hostel has a cool vibe, tight security so no safety issues. It is well kept and clean. Right opposite the Hauptbahnhof which is a big plus for exploring. After staying there for 3 nights I brought my 15yr old daughter to check it out and she loves it! I'd go back any day,... More

I spent one night alone here. Staff was okay, the bar was full of nice and young guests. It has a nice bar. Price is not bad. Location is quite good but not in the main center. It's actually very close to the train station.

This hostel had a great location right near the main train and bus stations. The rooms were a bit on the pricier side for a student traveling on spring break, but it wasn't bank-breaking. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, and the rooms stayed clean despite people being in and out all the time. The room I stayed... More

Very nice place, clean rooms and close to the train main station, people in reception was also always very nice. A small shower is in the room but i was only one night, that was ok for me. Breakfast is not included and has not so much variety.

I could say that this was my first amazing experience with a Hostel! Before staying at the Generator I had a pretty negative perspective about hostels, this place completely changed my mind. This past Christmas I visited my brother in Germany, but did not want to impose myself in his home, so I decided to stay in the cheapest place... More

My roommates were loud and I could not have quality sleep at all. We were not allowed to move into a different room with my friends when we made the request despite there being empty beds in a different dorm and feeling uncomfortable being the only female there with a group of seven males. The receptionist did not give me... More

Hello, Thank you for sharing your impressions with us. I regret that you left unsatisfied. The quality of service you are writing about, is not the standard we aime.
