Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

having visited Hamburg many times and stayed in lots of different hostels I decided to give generator a go.

when I checked into my room none of the power sockets were working so had to kick up a fuss to change rooms. the showers are very small, they look quite fancy but the water pressure is too low and all that you're left with is a trickle of luke warm water.

I must say the burgers were excellent! represent relatively ok value for money (beer and a burger for 13€) this is only considering the fact that the food and drink here is overpriced in the first instance. more expensive that surrounding eateries and massively over inflated for a hostel! food is good but if your looking for some cheap food and drink pre night out go elsewhere.

atmosphere was good however, especially if you're a solo traveller like me. overall I don't rate this place. choose any other hostel in Hamburg (there are loads!) for a cheaper and better experience.

Stayed: April 2018, travelled solo

Hostel was good: clean room and bathroom, polite administration, ability to have a breakfast for additional money, pick up for the free walking tour, good location. But nothing special, no cool atmosphere (like they have, for example, in the Generator hostel in Berlin)

Very good hostel. Great for young people. the location is perfect of you’re staying for few days, because it’s across the street from the train central station. The room was little but ok for 2 poeple and a stay of a few days.

First time in Hamburg. Hostel is 2mins beside Train Station. Very Central. Stay in a 8 man dorm. Room is big but Toilet and shower is small but there is a common Toilet/Shower on the level that you are staying on which is very spacious. Staff were helpful but there was one guy who was wearing a pink hat who was very ignorant and ill mannered which stop me from giving 5 out of 5. Towels are €3. Free WiFi. Hostel is 5min train to the Reaperbhan(Pubs/Nightlife).

Stayed: March 2018, travelled with friends

Great location, clean room, rooms are big enough with good security. Shower was small and you would not want to be over 6foot. Nice bar with happy hour. Breakfast was decent with fruit cereal tea, coffee and juices on offer
