“Great place to stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

Great place to stay. Spotlessly clean. Cheap. Comfortable beds. Very very helpful staff. Eat as much as you want breakfast, it's only basic but good quality.
The Generator is a hostel aimed at and priced for backpackers in their teens or twenties, so as a 62 year old I thought I would stick out like a sore thumb but was treated by staff and other residents as just another guest. If you're going to Berlin you have to stay here.

This is one of the newer Generator hostels and it is very well planned. The rooms are functional, no clothes storage for example but spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and great showers. The facilities are great with a bar, cafe, and breakfast area (plenty of choice, continental style) - wi-fi that works too! The staff at reception are always cheerful and ready to help. Step out of the hostel and you are in Berlin already with bars and restaurants on the same street. Transport to the airport etc is also close. I have already recommended this place to a number of people in different age groups - all are welcome at Mitte. Very impressed.

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.
