Be warned that the hostel doesn't offer towels for free. Despite that detail the location is good, staff is friendly and rooms are good. They are very well informed to offer tourist information and they recommend pretty good guide tours.

It was very helpful to have an elevator. The facility itself is spacious and has a sense of cleanliness and I think that it is modern. シャワーが固定されてるだけなのでちょっと使いにくかった。荷物を置く台やカゴ等あればなお良い。まな、水履き用の道具があればいいと思う。

Never stayed in such small room. Location was great and breakfast delicious, but never would recommend a place with tiny rooms and poor cleaning. We stayed at a private room with bathroom, with no towels and no places for unpacking our bags.

Stayed at the Generator for 5 days, really enjoyed the visit. Staff was really friendly and really helpful Rooms were alright Breakfast was good value for money The hostel also has a really good bar, which often was packed with people, and every Wednesday there's a Stand-up comedy event. Hostel is located within walking distance from most of the top sights in Central & eastern Berlin.

During our Christmas Break of 2017, we (a Dutch family of four, children 13 and 17 years old) travelled to Berlin. We stayed for five nights in the Generator Hostel at the Oranienstrasse in Berlin. It is conveniently positioned close to the city centre and because we brought our bicylces with us it was our ideal startingpoint for visiting the city and its surroundings. The room was not too big, but had a seperate toilet and was very clean. We stayed at the front of the hostel (at the streetside), but were not disturbed by sounds from cars and trams. The breakfast was a little bit difficult for the most visitors: you could choose in two categories and it took a lot time preparing it for the staff. So eventually one of us went down to order the breakfasts while the others were still under the shower. We were able to stall our bikes in the court of the hotel, parked our car for €1,50 for five days at a P+R at the end of metroline 6. A restaurant at the opposite side of the streed (Indian, called Amrit) was our favourite restaurant in Berlin because we visited it two times (see other review). I recommend this hostel because we had some good nights of sleep and enjoyed a nice holiday in Berlin.

Perfect location.It was a great vacation ,we were very pleased.We will definitely come back.The hotel is clean,staff were awesome.The service was great.We were impressed by the hotel,by the location and of services offered.

Very nice location ,the staff was very friendly . I stayed in a 4 beds room ,the bed was amazing and the hostel was very clean .I look forward for my next visit in Berlin and i highly recommend this hostel .

We booked a twin room for 2 - the hotel has a fab location and the rooms are perfect for people who are sightseeing so needing a bed to sleep in - the cafe downstairs is great too and does breakfast although we did go out to eat - there are lots of places to eat nearby. Great service from the staff as well - would recommend staying there any time you visit Berlin!

Funky and fun hostel. Very colourful decor in the rooms and around the hostel. Staff were awesome. Only downside would be the lack of clothes washing and drying facilities (only 2 washing machines and 2 dryers).

It really was a perfect low budget trip for a central city location ! The condition of the hostel was impeccable,the breakfast was excellent, the staff were very friendly and professional. The room was fantastic and the beds were very comfortable.
