+Hostel Design is Fresh and Modern -Location is in a city corner +Room is silent and I had a good sleep -The internet was sooo slow +Reception is young and friendly -No access to refrigirator to put your stuff in

The hostel facilities are great. The only a few things I would improve is 1. The height of the bunk beds: if you are staying in the lower bed you can't sit up straight on it because of the height, and I am really short. 2. There should be a common kitchen with a fridge: I would like to have lemon water, which the hostel doesn't offer, but can't buy lemons because there's no fridge to storage. 3. Plugs. Guys, seriously, at this point and age you guys need to sprinkle plugs all around the room. If you can't do that make extensions available in each room. It's extremely uncomfortable to be far from the plug going over people's bed to connect your charger. Also, if your phone needs to be charge during the nights, you have to leave it on a window or floor, which makes it really easy to be stolen!

Good hotel for budget travelers, young couples and students. Close to the tram station. Very good common area with nice facilities and bar is also available. Breakfast could have been better. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful.

Tiny room, tiny bathroom, bad location, bad atmosphere... in summary, the worst option to stay in this hostal. I have never seen such a bad breakfast in my life, really embarrassing.. please, dont stay here!!!!

Generator Hostel is good if you want to spend the right quantity of money, not choosing to stay in the city center. Rooms are good, the hostel is full of young life and the train/bus stop is really close.

I was last November there! The Generator Hostel at Storkower Str 160 is a bit out of center, but good connected to public traffic. For Berlin it offers a cheap overnight, but rooms are small and simply equipped. Breakfast is very sparse, but beverages and coffee tastes good for that price. Staff is very friendly, but sometimes loud guests are disturbing during evening. But all in all, a good price-performance ratio!

Excellent accomomodations, very clean and organized. There´s a bar @ the hostel so you can meet some friends there. The price is fair for the shared room and he staff is very nice. The enviroment is quiet, sometimes noisy at night, clean and confortable. I really appreciated my time there.

This hostel is a prefect choice to your travel in Berlin. In particular way its position that is very close to the public transport, the quality/price ratio and the youth and modern structure do your travel more easy. It worth notice that the bed are uncomfortable, in particular way the pillows. Anyway i advice this structure.

walls thin as a sheet of paper - you hear everything from neighbour rooms or walking people on the main floor ... absolutly no sleeping quality ... so even the "moderate" price is too expensive for a room without chance to get good sleep

Big hostel which I've stayed in three times. Very friendly staff, warm comfortable beds and it's right beside the tram and train stations. Could do with bit of modernization like light, power socket and all important USB port at head of bed
