Ride your bicycle along café-lined waterways, visit the most creative shops around De PijP or just kick back by the canal and try a few cold Dutch beers. It's pretty hard to get stressed in Amsterdam, but having a good time is easy. Generator Amsterdam is located in the up-and-coming eastern side of the city overlooking Oosterpark. This former zoological university building can accommodate 564 guests in 168 twin and quadruple rooms with incredible views on the surrounding and en-suite bathrooms. There is also one luxury apartment for six people with views of the park and a self-catered kitchen. It has flexible and spacious social areas, filled with creative design touches like glass-fronted elevators, a raised café and an outdoor terrace. We've turned the former lecture hall into an impressive chill-out lounge and bar, while the old library is now a relaxation and private events room. The basement and café are now dining destinations and the original boiler room has become a secret late night bar.

I can't speak highly enough of this hostel! Wonderful food in the cafe, AMAZING BAR STAFF, awesome people behind the desk. The room was clean, the amenities were wonderful. My only minor frustration was with the club noise reaching our 0 level room, and I wish the cleaning staff had emptied our trash and replenished our toilet paper in the week we were there. Otherwise, simply a beautiful place to stay.

Worst place here. They charge you the lump sum amount of money but no customer service or help provided. Make my trip was also of no help as they are third party agents and in Europe, they do not give a damn about them. Do not book this hotel at any cost.

Hi, I am sorry to hear you had a bad experience with the reservation. You do not explain what the situation is, so I am not sure about the issue. When possible we always try to help out our guest as good as we can, but when booking through a different channel we are restricted to make changes from our side. Hence, I would recommend to book with us directly. I still hope you will stay with us someday so we can make a better impression on you ;) All the best, Generator Amsterdam

Genuinely never met such an amazing member of staff. Such a caring and attentive person. She really went out of her way to make us feel welcome and was more than happy to help us out. She is an absolute goddess and I'd give her 10* for her service.

The service was OK but not great, however, that is to be expected at a place like this. However, the rooms were great, tidy and clean. The location is really good. It's close to a cozy park. Takes about 20-25 minutes to walk to the center of the city.
