It was my first time staying at a hostel and I AM HOOKED! Met people from around 15 different countries and made many friends. Am already planning a return trip to Miami and Generator. Overall great vibe.
Good location at Miami Beach. We stayed in a shared room (4 women) with enough space. Beds were comfy and offered a bit of privacy. The bathroom could have been cleaner, but it was okay. The price was a bit high for a shared room in a hostel, but the location and Miami in general made it worth it.
I had a great time staying at the generator hostel. I made a ton of new friends and had a nice stay. Beds were decent and comfortable. Bathroom facilities were clean, although the shower did not have much water pressure. The pool was great and even on a colder night, you could get in as it was warmed. The staff was good, they were friendly and helped when asked. Food in the restaurant was good, I only had breakfast. It was a bit more expensive. It would have been nice to have a place to cook yourself, or at least store food. They also had other fun extras like a pool table, which I enjoyed playing. It was a nice common area. Also the location was good! Very close to Miami Beach and to some good restaurants and cafes. I really enjoyed my stay.
Loved it! Very nice hostel! Super friendly stuff, clean rooms, good vibes, beach 2 mins away by walk, they give you fresh towels everyday for the beach. Great experience! They let us check in much earlier!
I booked a last minute reservation and was extremely pleased with the hostel, friendliness and accommodation of staff, cleanliness, and amenities. There were people visiting from all over and everyone was easy to get along with. I met a ton of new people and will definitely stay here again.
I recently had y 4th stay at Generator and it was good, especially the location for the price. Clean hotel and decent accommodations. But a couple of things cause me to say it has fallen off. When I first started going it was a hostel, where I could do some good work. But now, it is definitely a place to stay and work. It gets loud and the private area has now become part of the restaurant. So nowhere really to do anything and not much nearby. If you are coming for purely social reasons, this does not apply to you. Also, the lights in my room except for the bathroom and shower did not work. I bring this up because last stay it was the sink that didn't work. Not major, but not good
Incredibly comfortable and temperature of bedrooms is just excellent. The amenities are pretty good, the ambient in common area is very comfortable. Everything is clean, the furniture for the lugagge storage is big enough.
The Generator has spoiled me for any other hotel or hostel! The vibe is so cool! Even my 15 year old daughter said that it was the best place we've ever stayed. I will never come to Miami again without staying here!
I had a great stay a Generator. It is very clean and reminded me more of a hotel than of a hostel. The location is great, next to the beach and in front of the bus. Grocery stores and pharmacy are around the corner as well. The dorms have their own bathroom, so you just share it with the people in the dorm. Towels are provided and changed daily. The hostel has a beautiful swimming pool in the backyard and an awesome pool table in the common area! That pool table was great to meet other travellers. I would totally recommend it to solo-travellers! The things I didn't like was the height of the beds (if you're at the bottom bed you can't even sit up). Also, the rooms were extremely cold. And the hostel does not have a kitchen, so you have to go out all the time.
The place was great, better than I expected it to be. The staff was nice and very helpful, I will definitely be recommending it to everyone I know. The location is great and the vibes are nice. Will definitely be staying at one of these hostels again .
