wanted a bunk for few days

ridiculous to say the least a million doors in the corridors (fire doors it seems) a single small lift which you have to wait for - if u unluckily get a room on the 5th or 6th floors the bar and restaurant are mediocre - just punk music - unpalatable meals the rooms have no service at all - my bed wasnot done even once in 6 days the bath has no place to keep soap/towel/clothes/etc the bath has no door - some flimsy shower curtains ! security guards keep soliciting for money overall - i was dying to leave this place never again

Excellent value near Kings Cross

Friendly and clean hostel very conveniently located near Kings Cross, which puts you within 15 min of central London. Would recommend to budget travelers looking for a convenient location as a base to explore London. Note that I booked a private room so cannot comment on the dorms.

Some surprises, but overall is good

I paid for one bed in a 4-bed room on internet. But when I checked in, the front girl gave me a bed in a TEN-bed room!!! Regardless I told her this is NOT what I paid for, she insisted that she cannot do anything about it. At last, I had to pay extra £20 to switch to a 4-bed room. The hall-way was shabby while the shower room was really clean. The bed sheet was wrinkled, like someone has used it already. Do watch your head if you are given a bottom bed.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

After you come off the underground station at Russell Square, right opposite the train station on the right hand corner, you will see a sign of Burnswick, just get on that stree and walk for about 500 meters, you will hit Tavistock Place. Turn right onto Tavistock Place, and you will see the blue color sign of Generator Hostel on the left hand side in about 200 meters. The location is super convenient.

short stay

at first disappointed, your email to me to confirm my booking said "Room description: Dormitories room. Contains one single bed. Suitable for one person." which made me believe I would get as I asked - a single room to myself - email was misleading. However, breakfast was good and staff were helpful. Hostel conveniently situated for tube and chipshop.
