          Big clean rooms with ensuites (although very small), reading lights, personal power points and usb points, and lockers. Good common areas including a bar, right next to the main station (although can be a sketchy area). No kitchen and breakfast is expensive (I didn't have it) but otherwise very good.

          Stay Away !!


          This place is very ugly! Big building. Blue disco lights on every floor. Television around every corner. And little children screaming and playing Music out of there ghetto blasters. i ma form germany and I am ashamed to have such an Horrible place in my country. If your a backpacker like me, there are many other great hostels in berlin.

          Sorry, but this is not one of them.



          I had been looking forward to travelling to Berlin for many months - the journey from Belfast took about 9 hours in total, and wasn't a pleasant one. The reception staff at the Generator were pleasant, however the bar staff, in particular a blonde girl, was the rudest person I've ever had the misfortune to encounter. Her behaviour towards me and my friend was quite reprehensible. I wouldn't advise fellow travellers to stay at the generator if they are looking to make friends.

          Very disappointed!


          Stayed at the Generator with 3 girlfriends of mine in November 2003.

          The place is a real disappointment! Sure, they have cheap beer and cheap beds. But this about describes the atmosphere. CHEAP! Unfriendly staff, expensive internet (RIP OFF), expensive laundry, poor quality food in the restraunt (if you can call it that), and it is in the middle of no where. This place is not really for backpackers.

          Great Experience


          I have just read the comment about the Generator Berlin. This experience is completely the opposite experience from my one. The reception was very helpful and gave me local map for free which otherwise would have cost me 1 Euro. When I arrived at the bar I found that there was happy hour with a small beer costing only 1 Euro. I the bar where many backpackers like me and 2 advised me to go on the Insider walking tour. Yes the Generator Hostel is very big but has a great atmosphere and I really enjoyed my stay. The beds in the hostel are the best so far on my trip. Cheers

          Very far from the center and unhelpful staff


          Very disapointing with the service that my family recieved and we found it extremely far from the city center. The staff were quite dry and unhelpful. It is a quite large industrial looking building with very small rooms. We were quite disappointed.
