Pristinely clean, cheeky-sleek hostel/hotel with great service from a genuinely friendly staff (That means you, Erick, Christian and Ronaldo!). Three different well-appointed common areas, cool bar/restaurant, and beautiful pool patio with plush cabanas for lounging and nearly hidden adjacent bar. Very comfortable beds and nice shower. I would absolutely stay here again on my next trip to Miami. The only downside is the breakfast: fairly weak coffee and low quality bread. Some cuban coffee and pastries would be a great improvement. Cheers~

Generator is a hostel that never disappoints and Miami is no different! I'm so happy that they came to North America. I didn't expect Miami accommodations to be so expensive, and it felt like a godsend that Generator Miami opened up recently. It's only a 2 minute walk to the beach, and maybe a 20 minute walk from South Beach. If you were to Uber/Lyft from South Beach, it's about $7. Their entire ground floor area is just beautiful. It definitely makes you want to stay in the common areas rather than cooped up in your room. Their main building is for the shared rooms and they have two buildings outside that are for the private rooms. They offer free breakfast in the mornings (7-10AM?), and also free bike rentals. The rooms are nice and clean but nothing to rave about. The showers and toilets are in separate rooms which makes it easier for strangers to share the room without inconveniencing each other. The bunk beds are comfy and private, but in a room this small it would be nice to have a privacy screen. Compared to the Generators in Europe, this location is a bit small, but Miami real estate is super expensive and as it's their first location I can't really blame them. If you're looking to come to Miami on a budget, this place is perfect!

This low key hostel was so beautiful and well kept compared to other small places I have stayed. I was very impressed at the location, size of room, staff, pool, bar and everything. Everyone in and out of the building were great. The bar tenders at the outside bar were helpful with travel tips. The front desk attendants, Christian and Erick were very nice, professional and knowledgeable about the area. You can park at the Hilton two streets down. It’s valet and you pay per day a flat fee of about 25-27$. You can also take your car in and out as many times as you want. You can also park on the street 3.00$ and hour! Crazy Great experience at this clean cool hostel which is 2 minute walk from beach. Grab a towel at the front desk and enjoy!!

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed by a county mile. The decor, pool area and the vibe of this place are very hip. The location is excellent, 2 min across to the beach. The only downside, in my opinion, was both the restaurants are bit pricey but you get what you pay as the food and services were amazing. Highly recommend it.

We were recommended to try this place by an acquaintance, as it was close to our hotel. Hotel is beautiful, well staffed, tastefully decorated, music was perfect for the atmosphere with some great throwbacks/classics that would appease anyone with an ear for awesome. We all ordered small plates-oysters, tacos etc. everyone was pleased or better with their culinary offerings. Kevin-the food and beverage manager went out of his way to include us non guests and brought out and taught us about many table games that they stock for entertainment-he was a great companion to the positive energy, fantastic food, and chill vibe Generator purveys. We met multiple guests staying onsite that had nothing but positive things to say about their accommodations and experience as well as locals that had a very upbeat feeling for the establishment and scene as a whole. We’ll all be back but it won’t be just for dinner and drinks, we intend to make this our new place to stay, eat, and drink when we return to South Beach. Kudos to Kevin, Norbert and all of the other great people making Generator what we experienced this evening!

Brand-new Hotel and Hostel. Best staff ever. We've got a free parking for one night while late arriving and the begin of our honeymoon. Close to the beach, enjoy breakfast outside at the pool, free bikes for up to 4 hours, new rooms and great and friendly guests. We've had a fantastic time at Generator! Thanks!

I stayed at the Generator in a private room. So, it's more of a hotel experience. And, I loved the property from start to finish. Great service, friendly people around. The pool area is nice. Breakfast was disappointing though. Faena is just across the street for anyone set on clubbing but lacking budget to stay there. Parking is not avail with the hotel but there's easy access street parking around. I'd stay again for sure.

Great place to stay just off Miami beach....clean room and grounds...pool is a great size and the bar at the pool is extremely nice with plenty of chairs and cabanas....staff friendly ..... just need somewhere to park!!!

Generator is beautifully spaced and arranged to be comfortable and have space to yourself. Extremely clean and comfortable accommodations. The staff is outrageously helpful, kind, curteous, knowledgeable, thoughtful, etc. I am already planning my next stay in Miami because of the Generator.

I must say this. The Generator Miami Hotel or Hostel has saved my life. I will forever be grateful for welcoming myself to your establishment with open arms and no discrimination for having an address in the area. Your new building and amenities are amazing, spectacular and it’s location it is without any questions a prime real estate with great value and an enormous potential to make a good equity, an excellent profit. But I cannot resist to mention that your most valuable asset it is found in your staff. All of your employees seem to be happy and grateful to be working here. You can't help but to notice that they perform their duties with joy and pride. That positive energy is transferred to us, the guest. We receive the most excellent service 24/7, but with the most geniune smile and a true sense of caring. This is the unbreakable and time proven secret to success. Never loose this simple focus. I wish I could at some point pay it forward and help you guys break all limits and be a well known fact that here does not matter the century, decade or time period, the old fashion elegance of customer service it is presently here. Few modern businesses have this quality, have this as a goal. I always mention American Express as one the has survived with such ideals. I am now proud to add The Generator Miami as it’s new lead. Many blessings and much success to everyone to owns, directs or participates in this excellent service endeavor. Hugs, Hector L. Medina
