As part of my 'see a little more of Europe - backpacking trip', I stayed at the Generator Hamburg. I'd actually stayed at the London one MANY years ago, so knew it would be value for money and the brand didn't let me down. One of the most cleanest hostels I have stayed in (if not the cleanest), and puts some 'hotels' to shame. Very modern, with great decor. Staff friendly and helpful. Free Wifi, an essential necessary in the modern world! Again, for a hostel the bed was too comfy - shame I didn't spend longer in it. My only constructive comment would be... the stag weekends, I didn't know Hamburg was infamous for. Having travelled to the city for some r&r, Saturday night at the Generator was like a typical British town on the weekend, something I was trying to get away from in the UK. Then to the extreme at the beginning of the week, a sort-of kids playground with school children. I know you can't have it all and hostels have to make money, but next time I think a smaller one would be better - as with the above two groups, it wasn't really a backpacking experience I was hoping for. Great city though, if not a tad cold :)
