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.
