Spotless clean, modern, good quality sleep, nice rooms and facilities. Great location and better value. Special mention to Nerea, who is a star. She placed me in an empty room after I arrived very tired at night from a long International trip. She's very kind and welcoming.

Upon my arrival, I was greeted warmly by the friendly reception staff. The hotel is excellent, very clean, comfortable and has a very huge common space with an excellent location in Barcelona. I would definitely recommend this hotel to every traveler for business or tourism, traveling with a group or alone.

We were meant to be travelling to Barcelona and staying at the Generator. Unfortunately, all our flights got cancelled and the Generator refused to refund our deposit. They also refused to provide us with a voucher or postponement policy. If you are thinking of staying at the Generator, think again...

Hola upydupy, I answer you the same as the person below. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. Normally, given the circumstances, our reservation department provides, to a non-refundable reservation, a voucher to change the dates of the booking. I find it very very strange that they did not propose it to you. Contact us if you want: barcelona@staygenerator.com. Saludos! Roberta

We were meant to be staying here but our trip was cancelled due to Covid and the hotel refused to refund our deposit for our booking. Pretty poor from them, I would expect better given the circumstances.

We've been to this hostel to a party in their bar... the staff was really rude and the service was really slow... The prices are really high for the quality served. the only nice thing is definitely the decor...
