You’ll find Generator in the heart of the city, in the district of Mitte which is one of Berlin’s oldest districts. You couldn’t get a better location if you tried. Great for everything that is a must see in this great city as well as the nightlife. Oranienburger Strasse has become Mitte’s hub for nightlife, galleries, art, cafes and restaurants. The hostel sits in the centre of this grand street and is a terrific hangout for locals and travellers. Once you have seen and done it all head back to Generator, the perfect place of refuge, with great beds for sleepy heads, a bar and lounge that serves the best drinks and entertainment for miles around and of course you’ll be enjoying Berlin life in the most stylish and authentic surroundings. Choose from a great selection of rooms, from Dorms, to Quads, to Private en-suites with innovative mod cons like a USB port and your own LED light for late night reading. Fast and free Wi-Fi is all yours too. To get the most out of your stay visit the travel shop and our city experts will help you devise an itinerary that will take you to all the hidden treasures this dynamic city has to offer. You’ll definitely need more than a day to explore this city, it’s a culture vultures delight. We’ll see you there soon. -- Please note that due to the global pandemic, some venues, amenities, and services may have been eliminated or scaled down for the safety of our guests and staff. Please contact the hotel should you have any questions or concerns.

If you are not yet fixed about the stay in Berlin.You can just get a cheap room because they provide certain discount if you stay longer.Most helpful for the new comers.Due to Covid there was no kitchen or food service available which made a bit difficult for the stay.

Hi there Manish, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback on your stay with us , and, off course for your kind words. We are very glad to know that almost everything worked out for you . As you mentioned , unfortunately, due to the restrictions that apply for the protection against the covid19 pandemic , we can not yet offer our food and drink services on full availability, rather than a small alternative set of options . We hope that we will be able to again soon , as it is one of the elements that gives us a unique advantage comparing to our competitors. We hope to get the chance to welcome back again soon and leave you with an even better impression. Kind Regards Panos FO Reception

Great location, amazing service, friendly people. Easy to find. The staff were very nice. The beds were comfortable. The location is not far from Freidrichstrasse in Mitte. The sitting room downstairs is cozy, there is a public computer for people to use. The shower and bathroom are clean.

The facilities are nice but this place will try to nickel and dime you for every little thing, the staff are stuck up and rude. Travelled for a month and this was the worst hostel, I would much rather stay in a slightly less nice place and actually have some atmosphere.

We're really disappointed to hear that your stay was less than ideal, obviously with all the current restriction our atmosphere isn't at it normal peak, but we do have a fantastic committed staff that are always striving to make your experience the best it can be! We all wish you well in your future travels though and hope you give us another chance in the future. All the best, Michael - Front Office

I spent 3 almost 4 weeks in this hostel because I was doing an internship in Berlin. The room was nice and warm and I met a roommate that was so much fun :); for the room cleaning you got to ask, it wasn't very often but it was ok. I took a cup of cappuccino everymorning, it was very good and it made my day :) Spending 3 weeks meant that at a certain point it felt a bit like home. The location is right in the middle of the city, near the Museum Island, very safe to walk even at night and the transports were right outside the Hostel's entrance. The staff was very friendly and always ready to help you. I want to send a big Hello and Hug to Panos, Mike and the girl with the Red hair (sorry I've never asked you what your name was).
