“Great Hostel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We stayed at the generator for 5 days in november and it was great! It has a great price and the rooms were spotless. It is in a good location as it is next to a train station and a tram stop. I always had a great time at the bar before heading out on town. The staff were really fun and really helpful I'd recommend Jack Sander and vincent, they were very helpful and made the experiance more fun!.

It was a few years ago that a group of us went to Berlin. We stayed in this hostel and we had nothing to complain about. Just the opposite, we had a great time,food was good,we were playing table football like all the time :) I recommend! Grüße aus Kroatien :*

We stayed at the Generator Hostel for a whole week in October 2013. We asked for a room on the first floor as I don't like the lift and got a room towards the front of the building. I would avoid a room towards the back as you can hear the S-Bahn running all the time.
The room was small but spotless and the beds comfortable. The bathroom was like something from a boat, really small but functionable.
The reception staff are really lovely. They have the patience of Saints and will give directions and tips with a smile. Breakfast is also great, freshly baked rolls, jam, yoghurt, fruit, cheese, sausage- what more can you ask for?
the design is futuristic, there is a lot of metal and blue lights-not to my taste but some might find it funky.
The only thing that was annoying were some of the other guest-coming in late at night and shouting in the corridors, knocking on doors at all hours - so take your ear-pugs folks!
There is an S-Bahn just outside the hostel that takes you into town pretty quickly and runs until late at night. There is a massive public swimming pool on the opposite side of the S-Bahn if you would like a relaxing swim at the end of a busy day sightseeing.
We would come back here on our next trip to Berlin!
Top tip-do take a free walking tour, it was a real treat and eye-opener.

Room Tip: Take a front facing room.

Great prices, fine location, friendly and helpfull stuff. What else do You want from the hostel? ;)
There are only beds in rooms, very small bathroom (when you choose the room with private bathroom). It's clean and rather quiet. Breakfast is continental: bread, cereals, jam, coffe&tea and juice. The location is very good. S-Bahn station, tram & bus stations are very close to the hostel. There are a few restaurants in the neighbourhood, f.ex. italian, mexican, turkish cuisine.

I've been to Berlin twice and always choose Generator.

Been there a couple of years ago for last year's Eve. The hostel is clean and well kept, remember me and my friends had some problems with the blue light in the reception room and in the corridors, tehy were a bit scary. By the way, wish I could get there back for another nice holyday in Berlin.
