Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Generator Paris offers a location that is appreciated by many for its proximity to the Metro, aiding guests in navigating the city, despite being a bit distant from the primary tourist spots. The hotel's atmosphere divides opinion, with some guests embracing its energetic environment and others finding it lackluster. While the staff often garners praise, the hotel's cleanliness and room maintenance fall short of some guests' expectations. Additionally, the value proposition is questioned due to extra charges and the cost of amenities.

I loved everything about this hostel! The location is ideal - I walked literally everywhere, to all the main sites. Lots of shops and cafes nearby. Staff are very nice and friendly! Quick and easy check-in and check-out. I love the fact that there was suitcase storage available on the premises too! Café downstairs is very nice and chill - has veggie options! Room and bed were decent as well - just as you would expect in a good hostel. Overall very satisfied with everything - definitely recommend! :)

Not the first time in a hostel, but this one is something else! Clean and always good vibes, especially at the reception Sophie and Santiago, they were super helpful. The only bad point is the rooftop, it should be open so guest can enjoy the view.

Overall the stay at Generator was very good. The service was exceptional, Colombe and Laila at the front desk were very friendly and always available to answer our questions. I was a little disappointed that the club was only for special events and the rooftop patio was closed, and there is a rule about no outside food or drink which made it difficult given the cafe was not cheap. But overall the stay was pleasant and the place was clean and enjoyable.

Disappointing facilities, dirty toilet and showers, poor customer service, no proper maintenance in kitchen area, The room is good and maintained well. I am really disappointed with the total experience of the hostel. The team should build more training on customer experience.

First impressions were good, from the outside it looked nice & clean. But once in the rooms it’s a sh*t hole, mould, fecale matter, dirty bedding. Ontop of all this, the windows did not open & the air conditioning hardly worked. The food was also below the standard expected, it was like a prison meal & being fed like a prisoner in a South American prison. It was a joke to think people would eat that muck. Ontop of all this, consistently throughout the night there was constant disturbances from other visitors. Constant banging on the doors, screaming, fights etc. there was even a armed police raid across the road & multiple fights outside the hotel, vehicles were also being smashed up right outside. The group I went with also have had to pay a visit to the hospital upon return to England. Multiple people from my group have been coughing up blood, having consistent nose bleeds, bad stomachs etc. clearly there was something wrong with the hygiene of this hotel and it is just not acceptable. Overall this was a trip from hell and would never return, I would not wish this experience on my worst enemy. Avoid this hotel at all costs.

I enjoyed the atmosphere, a lot of people. Groups, schools, ... We only stayed to sleep and had a drink in the bar: it served our purpose very well. Do not compare it with a chic hotel. Easy located 50 meters from the entrance of M2 metro and 10 minutes walk from a train station
