We were a group of 26. Very knowledgable and helpful staff. Rooms basic but well designed and clean. Excellent shower in en suite. Bar very comfortable and friendly. Good food. Plenty of places to relax and socialise together. Nice courtyard with table tennis

My daughter chose this hostel for a get together & trip to Berlin for my birthday. I was a little apprehensive about using a hostel but the Generator Berlin Mitte was perfect. The staff were really helpful & friendly and our mixed age group found our rooms to be clean and functional with comfortable beds. Not a lot of storage, but that suited me as we travel light. Good breakfast every morning and a great little coffee bar open 24/7. The bar itself was also a good meeting place. I can't praise the hostel highly enough for the way they handled everything. The design of the building and the rooms was also both interesting & modern. Great place.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room - ask the staff when you make the booking. Rooms over the bike hire area ar...

The staff here are so friendly, patient and hard working that they had no trouble catering for our large group (of around 25 good humoured people of mixed age/gender).

We chose it for its location and good reputation and we were not disappointed. The Generator Mitte is a modern refurb. well designed and spotlessly clean with a good breakfast room, bar and front cafe which serves snacks 24/7.

Just remember that this is a hostel and so there isn't much storage in the room for clothes and no TV. Neither of those things bothered us. The rooms are spacious. Ours was a twin with shower room with very high quality fittings including power shower. It's difficult to think of anything bad about this place. Actually, I can't. The Generator Mitte is absolutely brilliant.

Room Tip: Ask for advice at reception.

Generally good. just didn't like one of the nights, since the bar was crowded with teenagers (children really) wich was really annoying. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Location is very good as well, everything in a walking distance or by underground.

Fantastic and easy to find location in the heart of the city. the staff were friendly and welcoming when we arrived and continued with the same attitude throughout our stay.

the hostel has a bar and a cafe attached and serves a variety of hot and cold food and beers late into the night.

this is a must for anyone looking for budget digs with comfort included.

for the record, we stayed in a private 2 bed room and barely heard a peep from the other guests in all the time we were there.
