You’ll find Generator in the heart of the city, in the district of Mitte which is one of Berlin’s oldest districts. You couldn’t get a better location if you tried. Great for everything that is a must see in this great city as well as the nightlife. Oranienburger Strasse has become Mitte’s hub for nightlife, galleries, art, cafes and restaurants. The hostel sits in the centre of this grand street and is a terrific hangout for locals and travellers. Once you have seen and done it all head back to Generator, the perfect place of refuge, with great beds for sleepy heads, a bar and lounge that serves the best drinks and entertainment for miles around and of course you’ll be enjoying Berlin life in the most stylish and authentic surroundings. Choose from a great selection of rooms, from Dorms, to Quads, to Private en-suites with innovative mod cons like a USB port and your own LED light for late night reading. Fast and free Wi-Fi is all yours too. To get the most out of your stay visit the travel shop and our city experts will help you devise an itinerary that will take you to all the hidden treasures this dynamic city has to offer. You’ll definitely need more than a day to explore this city, it’s a culture vultures delight. We’ll see you there soon. -- Please note that due to the global pandemic, some venues, amenities, and services may have been eliminated or scaled down for the safety of our guests and staff. Please contact the hotel should you have any questions or concerns.

Chelmsford, United Kingdom9 contributions
Accomodation was nice and clean. Reception was without any problem and stuffs were really helpful when we need something. I had only one uncomfortable situation with young waiter on the bar who tried to sell us two glasses of whiskey for €18, when he had charged us, for same whiskey, 20 minutes ago €12 and when we noticed that he wants more money for same drinks, he became to be arrogant and just blame us. We decide to leave the local bar because we saw from the table after at all how he’s saying something to his colleague behind the bar, showing on us and laughing. He was young, maybe 20 years old and he acted like a big boss.

Was pleasant enough but am average hostel vibe really. Very noisy at night and average beds and comfortability. Not really a lot of space and storage in the rooms and one toilet between 8 was a struggle

Close to the Museuminsel, really nice location, pretty decorations and rooms were fine, We rented a 4 beds room, a bit small but enough for the night. The beds were good and the room silent ! I would recommend coming with friends ! Thanks Generator !

Excellent! Nothing to add. I travelled my fair share and this is among my top favs. I was very pleasantly surprised cuz I am used to way less in German hostels. Again - I have no negatives for this one. Thank you, Generator Center (Mitte)!

I loved my stay and am going to stay at the one in Amsterdam next. Cannot wait. Only thing that was inconvenient is you have to bring a towel and the shower head in my bathroom would not stay up. Other than that, I have no complaints and highly recommend it.

Very noisy, a bit dirty. May be good for loud teenagers who don't sleep. I had no storage in my bedroom (supposed to be a twin deluxe) and the bathroom was smelly. Breakfast is sad. I would not recommend.

Decent hostel for a short trip. We stayed in a private 4-bed-room. The bathroom could use an update and the beds seemed very short for some reason. Even the private room had very little space and except for one chair no seating which was kind of annoying with 4 people and bunk beds. We payed very little though compared to Airbnbs or whatever and it's easy to go places from there.

Everything was great, I may only suggest curatins in bathrooms and their better ventilation, the mould started to grow on walls and ceiling there. Also it could be nice to have paper towels or regular ones in the toilets to dry hands after washing.

Super cool hostel in the center of Berlin. Really recommend it for big groups, we rented a whole room and it was very comfortable. However, it's a pity they dont let stay a bit longer in the common salon, I lacked a bit more of youth fun environment.

The only main issue was our broken window that couldn't be opened. A technician was supposed to come in (so was told everyday) but never arrived during my 4-day stay. This made our 6 bedroom's air unbreathable and our bathroom smell extremely mouldy.
