Great experience! It's a good value for money and it makes your stay in Berlin pretty comfortable. The establishment is very clean, looks like new and modern and it's in the centre. Next to it there is a metro station and a tram station so it is easy to move in the city. Rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable, while the price is pretty low for all these services. Members of the stuff are young, friendly and helpful and 24h available, The breakfast is full and not so expensive. As soon as you check out there is a space to store your luggage for free until you leave the city. Important: free wifi! I definitively recommend it.

The hostel was brilliant; I don't think the location could have been any better, the room was clean, the café provided really good value nice food, the service from all was top.......we were even given free Christmas t-shirts and santa hats.

Jess who works at the bar was on hand to give us information about Berlin and where to go etc....and of course recommend a good beer.

Thanks to everyone at the hostel.....I would certainly come back.

Honestly if you are having any doubts about staying in this hostel, don't think just book it. The staff is very friendly and helpful(Stephan, Jorge and a few more). You may come across a grumpy receptionist but it doesn't affect your stay here. Its worth the money, we were three of us and paid 16 euros each per night for a private room. It is very clean and tidy. The food menu is limited and you can get a breakfast buffet for 5.50 euros. It is a decent spread for a hostel. All the main attractions are easily accessible. Overall the experience was good and hopefully it will live upto its standards in the future.

Located within easy access to just about everything, the Generator Berlin is much much more than a hostel. Clean rooms (with bunk beds in case of a shared room), friendly (and knowledgeable) reception staff, a relaxed entertainment area and bar make this a great place to stay when in Berlin. You'll find a lot of interesting people from all over the world to chat with in the bar or the chill-out space. Try Tom's Fritters across the street for some cheap food and cheerful service. Walk around at night to listen in on some interesting conversations....Definitely stay here when in Berlin!

Found this place on hostelbookers with extremely good reviews and its easy to see why. Stayed in a dorm for 4 with a private toilet and the room was extremely clean. Toilet was very spacious and the location was just fantastic, within walking distance to major attractions and also, 2 metro stations just 3 minutes or so away. Not the biggest room that I've stayed in but definitely one of the most pleasant, well-kept and inviting.

What a great place this is! My daughter, her friend and I travelled to Berlin for the Christmas Market jollies and found this place via Booking.com. Couldn't ask for more really - good central location, basic but clean and functional rooms with plenty of hot water (we booked two private rooms with en-suite at Euro 46.00 / Euro 56.00 per night), a cafe and bar on the ground floor, a tramstop right outside the front entrance and a U-Bahn station two minutes walk away. All of the staff we had dealings with were charming and helpful.

The only downside to the Generator was that if you're not into all of that deck mixed techno-beat stuff that some people try to pass off as music, then the bar's a no-go area after about 10.00pm. There is, however, an alternative just a minute's walk away that boasts a selection of around 100 beers - so all is not lost.

Will certainly use this place again when I return to Berlin.

Thanks guys.

Me and three other friends stayed here the other week and could not fault it at all! The room was just what we needed, and the shower was great! Not one of those week ones that's for sure. Though we kept our room clean and tidy the bins where emptied and the bathroom attended to when needed, just what you need! Plus the location is at the heart of Berlin with the tram service and sbahn just on the door step! Also the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Defiantly going to be staying there again, and would suggest anybody else to as well!
