Generator Berlin Mitte

1.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I had to stay in Berlin for an extra night and came across Generator. It's located right in Mitte and was close to all the places I had to visit during the day. The service was super friendly and the room was clean and quiet. Unlike other hostels, Generator really has a cool vibe and doesn't feel like a typical hostel - in particular when staying in a private room. It has a super modern interior design and very comfortable beds. Would stay again!

A very good hostel, well run, clean with helpful friendly staff. Usual amenities available and its well located just north east of Freidrichstrasse station. Our room was front facing but road noise was no problem (even the loud stag party drinking on street bar close by was inaudible) and heating/cooling worked well. Great stay.

I was really desapointed with the cleaning. My room, the bathroom and the toilet would stink. I was also expecting a more friendly atmosphere from the hostel. There are no activities and the common areas to chill and meet people are quite limited.

The Generator hostel was clean and the staff were excellent. It was great having a twin room with private bathroom. The food was delicious and the location was fantastic as the tram stopped directly outside of the hostel.

Loved the Generator Mitte Berlin. Have never been to Berlin, and now love the city! There arent hostels where Im from so when in Berlin why not get involved. The Generator Mitte is super trendy and hipster with a chilled vibe. The staff at front check in, the coffee shop and bar are all super friendly and chilled. This place has everything you need when staying in Berlin. Great location too. Would recommend!

I was staying in a private room. It was spacious with towels & toiletries provided. Staff were friendly & helpful. There is a lot to do on site however as a female solo traveller I would have liked some getting to know others activities arranged. I felt secure though. The food was lovely except the breakfast scrambled eggs which were freezing cold.

Well located, a vast range of facilities available, pleasant staff (especially Fabio at the bar), quiet rooms, nice crowd and a cosy bar to boost traveller encounters. The only downside is the lack of entertainment and the exorbitant prices for food and water. Its price is at least double or almost triple in comparison to shops, restaurants and bakeries nearby at its doorstep. Even though they do have a bar on ground floor, there is no vibe. Would definitely recommend as a place to stay only.

As for me, this hostel is super-cool. The atmosphere inside, people are great. Especially Australian guy on the reception. The breakfast was the best I ever had in the hostels! Pick up for the Free Walking tour was also great idea! And all these for reasonable price

Friendly staff with fluent English. I'm travelling alone so stayed in a shared 4-bed female dorm. Breakfast was good value for 7.5Euro, and is available til midday on weekends. I liked the chill-out library area and the cafe. Bed was clean and comfy. I gave it 4 not 5 stars because of the bathroom - there was no ventilation/fan, so even though it seemed newly renovated there was already quite a lot of wonder because it's used by 4 girls so it was always steamy and hot and mouldy in there.

Generator is really centrally located, so easy to get places. The common areas like the bar etc are so much fun to hang out in! It’s clean and well priced,I would come back if staying in Berlin again!
