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 .
Best hostel in Miami, heck probably better than most hotel tbh. Stayed for almost a month. New towels everyday, they come an clean the room almost daily as well. It's crazy how hard the staff works, always constantly cleaning / working. Stayed in a quad bunk, met some great people, literally didn't have an bad bunk mates the whole stay. Stayed at the sister hotel "freehand" before this, was nice, but this was little better.
Great budget friendly hotel. You won’t regret staying there. So close to Miami Beach and other attractions. Everything went smoothly. Excellent value quality-price. Also, great if you want to make friends and meet new people.
I booked through hostelworld so I will be repeating myself on here but thought I might provide a review on here as well. -Room very spacious-mixed maybe half full? The noise was not an issue for me despite being around the corner from the pool. -The pool area is beautiful and the ambiance of the hostel like the other generators TOP TIER -If you are bringing a car NO PARKING ON SITE, make sure to get the parking app or park at the lot across the street- had no issues! That is how everyone does it -Staff was friendly to me and accommodating. Came in a bit late after a long day on the water and wanted to grab a bite but didn't want to drive and wanted to see if I could take a bike out but I came after the bike rental period. They let me take a bike out and lock it out myself afterwards. They were so kind for doing that...I am forever grateful for that as well.…
Very nice for a hostel, visually everything is immaculate but unfortunately the AC in my room was faulty and I got bitten up by bed bugs. If that issue didn’t arise I would stay here all the time cause it really is a beautiful location
Nice place. With a good team, they could make an extraordinary experience, but it is not the case. Staff is not service oriented and make you feel they are just there waiting to finish their work shift.
When my daughter picked out Generator for her b day celebration , I went uh oh! Boy was I pleasantly surprised. Good location , food , atmosphere and staff! It draws an eclectic crowd and that was 1/2 the fun. We had a blast.
I had very few issues during my stay. The worst thing about this hotel is probably that its restaurant does not serve french fries. other than that, it is an amazing place to stay. The rooms were cleaned every day and if you were not staying in a private room, the staff let you know when someone will be coming. One issue I had was the floors didn’t seem to be swept, but that also could have been an issue of foot traffic. The atmosphere of the hotel is amazing overall, the pool is so relaxing to sit by and they have plenty of chairs and areas to lounge in, whether that is outside or in the lobby. Also, Generator is set in a prime location. There is a bus stop across the street and another around the corner, so finding transportation is super easy and convenient even when you aren’t ubering. The security guard is always around and invisible. I did not have breakfast at the hotel, but I did have lunch and I definitely recommend the chicken burrito! Their drinks were also amazing as well, the lemonade and strawberry lemonade were my favorites. If you are a fan of the beach, you will actually love this place because the beach is legitimately around the corner. Such an amazing experience! …
