“Full of energy!”
Reviewed 18 March 2010

I traveled with with two friends and stayed in Generator in Berlin. This was my first city on the Euro trip and it started with a stay in generator. It was very near to a metro station.

The lace is always full of energy and a lot of travelers. You meet so many people in the common area. There was also a place for playing all sorts of games etc. Internet was available, but was paid. The breakfast was complementary and was there was a lot of variety. If people wanted to pack some stuff for the day, they were allowed to.

The place was however a little far from the main city and we had to change a couple of metro tracks to reach anywhere. But given the kind of facilities at such an incredible price makes up for anything.

A small problem though we faced was that we were allotted an already allotted dorm. But the confusion was quickly cleared and in return we were given a much better room, just for ourselves!

It had an arrangement with Sandeman New Europe Tours for a free walking tour of the city

You can get there a room for two people (at least me and my girlfriend did), so there can be privacy for budget travellers also! This is not a peacefull place though, you can expect noice around the clock :).

Stayed here a couple of years back with two friends, we rented a four bed room, and where surprised by the good standards of the room compared to the price.

Before arriving we where worried about the noise level at the hotel, but it turned out that this was no problem, even though there where several schools there with drunk teens (my friends and I are aged 30-35), the noice was kept to a minimum.

The hostel I located right next to a train station so it is really easy and fast to get into the center of Berlin, the surrounding themselves where quite borring, communist style appartment blocks.

Breakfast was free, and you could buy internet access. There was free parking across the street.

All together we where very pleased, and do consider staying here again

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.
