Stayed here on a friend's stag do. Excellent hostel. Great location, right by the train station which has easy links to the airport. Room was clean and tidy with an useful box underneath each bed to store valuables. Free Wi-Fi throughout the building which is fantastic considering the size of the building. Puts some hotels to shame! Great bar and... More

Didn't get off to the best start as after queuing for about 25mins to check in my key card didn't work. I politely asked if there was a quick way of sorting this just to the side of the queue hoping I wouldn't have to queue again, I was told I would be helped in a minute, and the girl... More

Stayed here earlier this year as part of a group for a couple of nights. Welcome was good, we were booked in quickly and despite arriving early were able to take our privately booked dorm rooms on arrival. Rooms are clean with handy plug and USB in the bed. Private showers and toilets are small but all fine for a... More

This is certainly a very good hostel. It's an old building which has been completely renovated, which makes the inside look modern, nice and pleasant. The reception area is spacious and also comfortable thanks to several padding benches they have (by the way, the staff speaks good English). It is also here were they offer and sell sandwiches, pastries and... More

Stayed for 4 nights and beds were comfortable. Facilities were up to standard (computers, games, bars, cafes, etc) . There we're pull out storage below the bed which allows you to keep a lot of stuff but you have to have your own locker. No problem encountered throughout the stay and will definitely stay here again . Just a minute... More

Was there for an overnight before boarding back to Asia. Waited for FOUR hours to wait for my room to be cleaned up. This was unforgivable in my holy opinion. Luckily another friendlier staff finally allocated us to another ready room ending our misery. But I wondered why the previous two staffs didnt bother to do so. The room was... More

The Generator hostel is very, very basic, however, it is also very very clean and only a 1 minute walk from the train station. During my two day stay, there were always plenty of taxis close by and we spotted many places to eat nearby. Reception staff were very easy to deal with, helpful and spoke fluent English. There is...
