Our Central London Location in Russell Square and our famous bar are just a few reasons why we are one of London´s best hostels.
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.
Had a private room - very clean, funk designs, good vibe and foods!
Cheap food, free wifi, near Russell Square metro, vending machines, laundry room, travel shop
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.
Very clean hostel and friendly staff. Great location, for sure if you're coming by train!
Dirtiest hostle ever, pubic hairs on the matras?! When asking to clean they 'waved' the hairs away with a pillow case. "Great cleaning policy" (Sarcasm!)
Stayed here for 2 nights with 9 friends. Good and clean room and shower facilities. Totally renovated last year!
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)
Good staff, clean and safe.
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" :)
excelent but too@HOT! put air conditioner
Fully renovated now and its pretty nice. Very clean, friendly staff and cool decor. This is my third time here and i will always recomend it
booked a 4 bed female room,clean, fresh linen& quiet as on 4th floor.Ask for upper floor if you want quietness.lounge area is chic, cafe with homemade cakes,bar with pool and table soccer. I love it!
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.
Newly renovated and aesthetically pleasing to the eye! Day one and I have zero complaints .
The security can't smile
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
from 5-9pm they have the happy hour, with cheap beer, it's very good
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!!!!
been here for 6nights! For that price it was really good! bed was clean, room was clean, bathroom was cleaan!breakfast was absolutely enough and the bars in the evening good!wifi everywhere! -germany
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.
DON'T GO THERE!!!
Shittiest breakfast I've ever had
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.
Good position, funny stuff but 4 showers(and wth showers) for 3 floors aren't a great idea...
Love this place!!
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!
The most fucked up wifi I've ever seen anywhere.
Generator hostel. A genuine prison experience.
It is fucking shit! I would feel safer sleeping on the street than stay in here any longer!
Food and beer sucks. In general good place for party lovers
It really stinks, bathrooms are dirty and it really feels like a prison.
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
I made the check in and they didnt give my free drink!!! hahahaha
Dear God don't forget your keycard. It's like fort Knox even with it.
Worst hostel ever. Any place like this you should avoid unless you are a huge douche.
this week was full of dutch people in the hostel
I spent a whole week here and it was GREAT. It's an hostel and not an hotel so don't expect high quality but it's good for what you pay. The entertainment is good and I had a very pleasant journey.
