    They charge for everything and advertise happy hours in the bar when there isn't any.

    Great staff, very clean, best wifi I have ever seen in a hostel. Food not so good, great place to drink though. Good value, perfect location!

    Avoid this hostel at all cost! You'll pay not much more for a fancy hotel. Rooms are extremely small and even The luggage room costs money!

    Shithole! No charges or lights on the bed, weird people and bad showers. People banging in showers, srsly?! I've been to 3 other Generators and those have been good.

    The wifi is very good, staff is nice, the shawers and toilettes are very clean. The location is good because you have tube stations near frome there.

    Pros: The hostel has a lively mood during weekends & is centrally located.The staff is really nice & helpful. The con: shared dorms are in the basement so you can feel the underground trains.

    The hostel is very clean, good decoration and great location. The staff was not very nice and the rooms were minimal, not like it appears in the photos. They charge for luggage storage (£4/6 hours).

    It had been a horrible experience; The students from London use the hotel like a house for having partys in the rooms with music and alcohol all nights and the staff of the hotel allowd them.

    Generator was redecorated and completely transformed, so is good to stay here. It's modern but toilets and bathrooms are a little smelly. Breakfast is too poor, I don't recommend buy it.

    The private rooms are very much worth it. Very trendy, clean, and well priced. The bar at the hostel isn't the best though. Better options for a pint nearby.

    Designed hostel with corridors that would appreciate air circulation. Good location and worth the price (private room)

    Our room (for 2 people) was clean, there is a security guy at night. That's huge, maybe too much. You should just sleep there and walk a little to eat a real "English breakfast" :)

    No kitchen which is a bit of a bummer, really clean rooms and social areas are great.

    The Generator is much better than hotels. One thing I don't like is service at the reception! There's a group of a particular nationality working there need to learn the basic good customer service.

    One of the shittiest hostels I ve ever been to. This place feela like you are back in good old Nazi Germany! To get into the bar we needed to show our IDs 4 times. #DontGoThere

    Its quite expensive for Being a youth hostel. But it's clean and well communicated.

    Cooked breakfast starts at 10am for £4.50 - otherwise it's continental (£3.50). Bar happy hour from 5pm - 9pm is good value. Laundry and ironing on site (£2.50 a wash, 50p drying, free ironing)

    Renovated since the other "prison" comments. This is a clean, well run hostel with great cafe, bar, lounge, cinema and bathrooms that are cleaned regularly and always have hot water

    It's the best hostel in London! it's safe, clean, the food is good and there's a happy hour. The security guards are really nice, the toilets are always clean and there's hot water in the showers.

    All the coments are totally outdated. They have an elevator, six floors, a dinning area, a really good bar and the wifi and lugage room is free! For the rate and area, it is really good!!!!

    Ignore the outdated negative comments here - The place is just finishing a complete renovation. Brilliant location, friendly staff, clean facilities and very safe. Will always recommend this place.

    Good staff, good location, good price. Subterranean rooms are somewhat stuffy and stinky.

    This is one of the cleanest hostels I've ever stayed in. Friendly staff (and great happy hour). They don't supply towels, so don't forget to bring one!

    Pretty cool for a hostel. Especially if you don't mind group showers. The crowd was a little young for me (26 at the time of my stay) perfect for college age travelers.

    Awful hostel: blood and other stains on the sheets and curtains, very poor breakfast (paper bag with a few things inside), wifi doesn't reach the rooms, it really feels like a prison.

    One of the grosser hostels I have stayed in... rooms are small & shabby, shower rooms like prison with nowhere to set things, unisex toilets didn't have locks... good thing I was drunk the whole time!

    Generator is really very bad, like worse than a prison. When you are not treated like a prisoner you are treated like a cow. Bathrooms dirty, eating room has rats and breakfast is really poor. 0/100
