Generator Berlin Mitte
© Marc Winkel-Blackmore

The Generator hostel empire spread across Europe, with two locations in Berlin, a large, if blander, site in Prenzlauer Berg, and the funkier flagship on Oranienburger Strasse. It’s trying to position itself somewhere between a traditional backpacker’s hostel and a boutique hotel, with a neat design aesthetic across the bedroom furniture and bar area. There’s plenty of useful services, like a 24-hour laundry, luggage storage and an affordable daily menu dished out in the evenings. It’s definitely geared towards a younger crowd, with urban art on the walls and a late-night bar with DJs on weekends. As well as the usual bunk dorms, they have a number of private rooms which sleep up to four, as well as female-only dormitories. Free WiFi.

Awful smell in the bathroom, after complaining about it, they said that would send somebody over to check. Waited a whole day and nobody came. Now the hostel is crowded and they won't even change my room. Only thing they told me was - sorry. Breakfast is simple and overcrowded, they cannot refill things on time. There is a massive line to get your food, it looks like a free breakfast but you have to pay for it. The location and ambiance is great, but everything else is a mess. It wouldn't be my first choice!
