Overall a good place to stay if your staying for a night or 2. Didnt like the location much, but apart from that the service and room was excellent. As far as the common area there are no soft couches, just had metal tables and chairs which i didn´t really like. But Nice place.

The hotel surroundings is very weedy, like all of Berlin. The hotel was very excellent for me, I,ve read in review that the young adults are so noisy, but it isn't true.

I stayed 2 nights at the Generator, and found it to be an excellent value. While initially concerned about its distance from the center of Berlin, the location was conveniently located mere paces from both local tram stops and an S-Bahn station. I appreciated the variety of people staying at this hostel, and would delight in returning the next time I'm in town!

l'unica anomalia è che non ho trovato il personale che parla pure l'italiano come descritto nel sito, ma per il resto tutto molto buono.

il generator è meraviglioso per vicinanza alla metropolitana, camere spaziose e pulite e rapporto qualità/prezzo. i suoi utenti sono per lo più giovani e, se si ha molto tempo a disposizione, c'è l'opportunità di socializzare con tanti ragazzi di differenti nazionalità. EPPURE mi hanno SOLATO in un primo momento avevo prenotato per una settimana una tripla senza bagno al costo di 336 euro dopodichè ho cercato di cambiare la prenotazione contattando un RESPONSABILE del generator con cui avevo contrattato una tripla con bagno al prezzo di 420 euro una volta arrivato a berlino mi ritrovo senza bagno. una settimana, 336 euro mi reco alla reception e faccio notare l'errore. risposta: domani avrete la vostra tripla con bagno, pagateci la tripla senza bagno solo per questa notte. il giorno dopo otteniamo il cambio di stanza ma abbiamo dovuto pagare una QUADRUPLA con bagno a prezzo RIALZATO. oltre al danno, la beffa: lo staff del generator è stato ESTREMAMENTE SCORTESE e mi hanno fatto capire che il problema l'avevo creato io che avevo avuto una corrispondenza via mail non ufficiale con un responsabile che in quel momento si trovava a londra. il posto è ottimo, fate attenzione alle prenotazioni buon viaggio, tiziano

Esta muy bien en general, los únicos fallos están en el desayuno, que practicamente lo tienes que pagar todo y en la hospitalidad de los empleados, ya que pasan bastante de sus tareas. Pero por lo demás es estupendo, ya que esta apartado pero tiene el metro a 100 m, y el precio es asequible. Yo repetiré.

Overall it was what i expected. I was really surprised to see that the room was the smallest i had ever seen. We bumped into each other all the time.Too bad for that! Nice atmosphere though and the price wasn't so bad. Thanx for everything, cu again!

We only stayed 1 night at the generator and that was enough. the hostel is fine if your 18yrs,it was full of young people who couldn't handle their drink. It felt a little out of control as there was not enough staff on duty. The hostel is clean but we stayed in a private room and for £40 it was a rip off.

Stayed here a few nights. Was very clean. The use of the inaternet was a bit high-1 euro for every 15 minutes! The food was great, plentiful breakfast. The male bartender was quite rude however. Overall a great place for backpackers alike. I would stay here again. I recommend them

Hostel is large, clean with good group areas. However avoid at all costs if you have an aversion to blue lighting. Perhaps tries a little too hard to be trendy and youthful.

The Generator Berlin is a excellent hotel for the price and I would strongly recommend this hotel. I also got a huge discount by booking from Venere.com...the actual rates displayed were much higher that the web rates.

I would recommend The Generator Berlin to any budget traveller wanting to stay in Berlin. Although it is a few miles out of the city centre, the public transport system is easy to navigate and the S-Bahn stop is right next to the hotel. The hostel itself is brand new, and is very clean. It's very modern in style, with lots of blue neon lights and beaded plating everywhere, a style of decor that I liked immensely. The staff are generally friendly and helpful. The food is OK; breakfasts are basic (cereal, bread rolls, toast, tea, coffee) but additional items such as sausage, bacon, eggs, fruit juice, cheese can be purchased at a very reasonable price. The Generator Berlin has one major advantage over its sister hostel in London as far as I am concerned - the availability of en suite rooms for very little extra. Personally, I would definitely stay at The Generator Berlin again.
