“Best value great atmosphere”
Reviewed 5 February 2010

Got given the tip in Italy from someone I met on a train if your in Berlin stay at the Generator - Great advice - if you in Berlin stay at the Generator. Modern, Vibrant, Great value and good food. Rooms are small but adequate and comfortable. When on a pub crawl and later a bike tour both organized at reception- great way to see what is now one of my favorite cities.

Stayed August 2007, travelled as a couple

generator hostel is the best hoste I've ever seen (and I've travelled so much arround europe). The hostel s located close to the center, there is a subway stop in front of the building. All the generator's workers are so friendly and they can speak lots of languages. If you want is possible to rent a bike there, and is one of the best ways to see the city.
They have also a bar quite cheap (even more during the happy hour).

I stayed here for four days and I really had a great time. The hostel looked very modern. The room was small, but it was big enough for us. The location was great, the hostel was very close to S-Bahn station. I can only high recommend it to you:)

It was a really clean hostel and very well run! The service was great and they provide really great opportunities to go on tours of Berlin. I went on the tour of Sachsenhausen the concentration camp and I thought it was very good and very interesting. The location isn't right in the centre, but very very easy to get to by the Strassenbahn (or the S-Bahn). For the cost, I think it was very very worth it. There were families there which was fine for me but if you want a really youthful hostel, maybe not this spot.
