We took a private room at the hostel. It was really tiny, had no closet or refrigerator. The room was practically the size of the bed. We could only open one of our bags. Seemed not worth the 150 euros per night price tag. The soap dispenser in the bathroom was not working too and they weren’t really able to fix it. The good thing was a balcony and the location. Very near to all the major attractions.
The staff was not welcoming when checking in, neither answering questions. They complaint about their computer system and seem to have problems to use it. The hostel was full young groups drinking and party vibe. Not really cozy to meet people or make new friends. My bed was dirty and besides it’s a modern building there is just one elevator, really packed all the time. The only good thing is the location of the hostel.
Staff are nice but very distracted. The system is really disorganized, dont know which one is the new bed and who is staying where in the room. Overall its a really dirty place, like nobody cleaned it since covid?Used 30 wet tissues to clean my own bed area and had to throw away dirty socks found around the bed. In addition, no where to store my suitcase after check out so I had to pay 5 euro to do late check out. Such a terrible experience..
I am not pleased since my stay was not as satisfactory as expected. I will not go back to your hostel. The room was too warm even at night. No one came to the room to check the AC. There is no dining facility for lunch or dinner, since it was only offered to groups of families or employees. But to the solo traveler or couples was never offered.
bad experience. no air conditioning in the room. two hour late check in. pillows were horrible. crumbs all over room. they charged us for the towels despite being two hours late to check in. i just think the generator paris was way superior to this
The building is lovely - very modern! The rooms are a little tight but very comfortable. Quite dark in the rooms. 20 minute walk to most things and easy to grab a taxi. Felt safe walking back home alone there at night. The staff were very helpful but the queue for reception was always very long! A great stay on the whole: super value for money.
I liked to be there. Staff are ok. Breakfast was good. Hall is nice. Party on the bar was funny. I didn't like the space. There was enough room to me. Toilets and showers very small and tight. I was expecting some pub crawl or paella groups, but it didn't happen.
I have stayed at Generator before in another city and they were so good I thought I would use them for my trip to Barcelona, and they did not disappoint. Friendly staff, easy checking, lovely atmosphere and a perfectly located hostel. For Solo travellers I have always felt safe at their hostels. Only minor thing was the thin pillows but easily solved by asking for a second pillow.
The reception staff are dismissive, and at one point one of the team was incredibly passive aggressive towards me when I tried to help another traveller. No atmosphere. One elevator for 8 floors. Abysmal.
We stayed here for 2 nights and it was perfect. Very friendly staff, great atmosphere, plenty of facilities like a pool table and roof top terrace. Our room was spacious and was cleaned daily. We loved the bar where they had DJ’s playing and we danced all night. We couldn’t hear any music from our room either so we had a great nights sleep. Definitely recommend if it’s a good, lively hostel your are after
