    Clean, large, modern rooms. Very comfortable beds. We had a dorm to ourselves, but there were lockers available if we had been sharing with others. Plenty of electric sockets in the room. Separate bathroom and toilets. Very central location, right next to main train station, and wasn't nosiy because of this.

    towels not provided.

    Like in the questions above, the Generator was an excellent place to stay. Myself and my friends found the hostel very clean and totally hospitable. The staff were friendly and helpful. All spoke excellent english, which was a great help to me ! I would certainly use the Generator on further visits to the lovely city of Hamburg. Thank you.

    There was nothing I didn't like.

    Very clean rooms and bath rooms, friendly and ready to help staff, excellent location (just 5 min to my coach station), nice large lounge inviting to hang out, chilled and relaxed atmosphere

    I would have preferred to stay in a dorm for females only, but the website just offered mixed rooms. The guys in my room were all nice, though :)

  • Couple

    Location right in the city center. The room was clean, and the beds were comfortable. Also, the atmosphere in the lounge + the nice and inexpensive breakfast were good features. Altogether, great value for money!

    The "doublebed" consisted of two single beds that were squeezed together and easily went apart. The bathroom was tiny

    Location is perfect. Right across the main railway station, U-Bahn and S-Bahn stations. Walking distance to the Rathaus and Hafen City.

    Bathroom and toilet rooms are too narrow in 6-person room. Breakfast could be better for the price of 5.5 euros.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    (1)the toilets are definetively too narrow: very complicted to wash your face or brush your teeth, impossible to prevent the water to fall when your use the tab (2) hair-dryer is not easily accessible enough: it is in the common shower room (only one per floor) if somebody is inside to take a shower or using the service you have to wait (even if nobody is using the hair-dryer inside)

  • Single
    8.2

    very clean, comfotable

    no wardrobe, the shower area is too small

  • Single
    7.8

    1. very close to the central station 2. price is quite economic

    1. the bathroom is too small to take a shower 2. wifi is unsteady and slow speed
