You'll find Generator Barcelona conveniently located at just a 5 minutes walk from two main metro stations, Diagonal and Verdaguer. Travelling to and from the hostel to all the must see sights is a piece of cake. The beautiful sandy beaches are just a 15 minute metro journey away. Only a short walk away are the maze of small streets of the Eixample district, home to Barcelona's trendy shops, bars and restaurants. Generator is the perfect place for those looking to combine style with great atmosphere. You'll find great beds for sleepy heads, a communal TV room with outdoor patio to a chill out lounge/caf that serves the best drinks and snacks for miles around. Choose from a great selection of rooms, from Dorms, to Quads, to Private en-suites with your own power socket and 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. Barcelona is the latest edition to the Generator family, We will see you there. If youre under 18 you need to book a private room (single, twin, triple or quad). Its the law! And you will need to have written permission from a parent or a guardian. We will not be able to make the check in if your reservation is for a bed in a shared dorm and you will be asked to pay the difference to a private room in case we have them available

Excellent atmosphere

I stayed in a 6-person mixed dormitory, travelling by myself. Because of the room setup and the amenities of Generator (the bar, the lounge, etc.) I was able to make lots of friends. It is also very close to the metro and walking distance from the Sagrada familia! I loved staying here, and would absolutely recommend it. The only negative thing I would say is the room was very hot.

Something a bit central

Although we moved from a hotel to Generator, it was a great place to stay. Several mins walk to the metro. We each stayed in private rooms and it was good. basic amenities but you only need a place to sleep. bar was good especially when watching the >World Cup. Staff good and checking in and out went smooth.

Good location, non comfort in the room

No parking available when i got there, i have to park the car on the street 8 blocks away. Pillow were a joke, no tv, no refregerator, no coffe maker. And if you don't pay attention to the reservation you will be sleeping with 8 more people. And share the bathroom. Well located

Schöner, unkomplizierter Aufenthalt

Das Generator Hostel ist top ausgestattet. Für mich gab es keinen Unterschied zu einem Hotel. Nettes Personal, Sauberkeit der Zimmer ,24h Rezeption. Ich würde mich auf jeden Fall wieder im Generator einquartieren.

Allgemein

Die Toiletten unten an der Reception sind nicht die saubersten. Wenn es noch Toilettenbürsten hätte könnte man die Spüren wegwischen. Das gleiche in den Zimmer. Keine Toilettenbürsten. Trotz guter Zimmerbelegung war es sehr ruhig. Ich habe nirgends bei der Buchung gelesen das ich ein Badetuch brauche. Kann aber gegen Geld gemietet werden. Essraum im Untergeschoss viel zu kalt. Klima läuft auf hochtouren. Kein Safe auf den Zimmer. Zuwenig Schliessfächer im Kofferraum.

modernes Hostel

das Hostel ist sehr zentral gelegen von der Station Diagonal findet man das Generator innert 10 Min. An der Reception wird man sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend betreut. Das Hostel ist sehr modern, und sauber das Zimmer ist zwar einfach und klein aber auch das ist sauber, wird jeden Tag gereinigt und ich bekam sogar bei 5 Nächten eine zweite Bettlaken-Garnitur. Es gibt schöne Aufenthaltsräume im 1/2 Stock, da will man sich im Zimmer gar nicht lange aufhalten. Eine Bar und auch ein schönes Kaffe wo man für 6.50 Euro ein fürstliches Frühstück gönnen kann mit Egg&Bacon,Croissant,Früchten,Yoghurt..... (Ticket an der Reception holen). Also mir hat der Aufenthalt in diesem Hostel sehr gefallen. Ist nur zu empfehlen:-)

im Cafe Jamaica gerade eine Strassenecke vor dem Generator, bekommt man einen riesen grossen Salat, für 4 Euro etwas anstatt den Cesar Salat in der Bar vom Generator da bekommt man nur ein kleines Schüsselchen:-) und probiert die leckeren Churros bei der Churreria, (auf dem Weg von der Diagonal zum Generator) Lecker! zwar sind es Kalorienbomben, aber was solls:-)

Generator's the best

Hotel très chaleureux, confortable, ambiance zen et moderne. Nous avons passé un séjour à quatre très agréable ! Auberge de jeunesse "de luxe" pas très loin de la ville, des ramblas et de la barceloneta en utilisant quelques stations de métro. Je recommande

Hôtel bien situé avec un bon rapport qualité prix

Hôtel "auberge de jeunesse" récent qui offre une architecture et une décoration contemporaine. L hôtel est bien situé à 5 minutes a pieds de la sagrada familia et 10 minutes de la rembla. Une multitude de commerces se trouvent a proximite (alimentaire, habillement...). Nous avons choisi une chambre privée pour 4 personnes qui était confortable et très propre. Le seul bémol est l insonorisation de la chambre, nous entendions des bruits sourds venant d une chambre de l etage superieur ainsi que les portes qui claquaient. Notre fatigue a eu raison de ce désagrément. Hôtel a conseiller.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Attention au parking qui se révèle très coûteux. L hôtel dispose d une place de parking a 25 euros les 24h mais pas doivent disponible. Il faut demander a la réception, le nom du parking le moins cher du quartier ( comptez environ 25 euros également). Pour les autres parkings il faut compter 0.05 centimes la minute dégressif après quelques heures mais tout de même 50 euros les 24h)
