Score from 1545 reviews Good
only one problem: the space for the lower bed is too small. The upper bed is too low that I cannot sit on my bed (I'm 172 cm tall).
Good breakfest, fair price. Excelent location, in front of central station. Nice loby
Very exprensive towel price Small bedroom (looks like a air.plane lavatory) Pretty small room for 6 people.
Staff, room, bed, location.
Size of the bathroom.
Super close to the main train/bus station. The bed is clean and very comfortable, also has a private light for your own, I think it's the best Hostel I ever lived for this price. Highly recommended.
The sink is too small, hard to wash your face without a towel.
Super close to the hauptbahnhof (main station)
I stayed in a 6people shared room ,everything is fine,just the toilet and bathroom are tooooo tiny.
We were in the same room as each other which was good. It was my boyfriends first experience of a hostel and he was extremely happy with how it went. We were in a mixed room for 6. There was a toilet and a shower within the room. The hostel was so close to the centre train station. One minute from the S bahn and U bahn. Many food places near by. Didn't feel too safe walking on Steindamm straße just next to hostel late in the evening. The hostel was quiet as the bar closes quite early but you could move through to the cafe area to finish your beer. The hostel felt very secure, security let you in but didn't always check to see if you had key card. Take a padlock for the storage under the beds. Overall a great stay at Generator Hostel!!!
Our room wasn't cleaned everyday, the bins were not emptied and toilet roll not replaced. We had go and find some from the other shower room. As the showers were so small in the rooms we chose to shower in the external showers on the corridor which was not a problem for us.
Nice, clean modern looking rooms. Beds definitely the most comfy I've ever slept in. Fantastic value for money, great place to meet new people as many of them are students travelling around Europe.
Bathrooms are spotless however a little too small. There are bigger, communal ones outside so this is not a problem at all.
Liked the atmosphere, location was perfect (right next to train station and a couple minutes walk from the main hub)
Booked a triple room which ended up being a quadruple room (2 bunkbeds) in a tiny layout with an aeroplane style bathroom. Have stayed in another Generator Hostel and so expected the same size room but in fact it was much smaller!
Helpful and very kind staff . Good location.
The location can't be better, saves your money because you can walk to many places in the historical center
Any food except that from their own cafe is not welcome. That is easily avoided, of course, but a bit awkward and annoying.
very close to the railway station safety clean
Bed can make private space. That great !
2 mins to bus terminal and 3 mins to railway station. If you arrive hamburg by bus, you can very easily find it. And there is a plug for each bed.
Very often, the card used to enter the hostel and the room isn't working properly. I don't know how the other card work, but mine is not so good.
There is no LOCKER in room.
Comfortable Bed Good food Excelent Staff Enough facilities
Our rooms weren't ready on time The Private badroom was tiny
The barrister was excellent, her coffee was top quality. It's clear she has a lot of experience.
Forced out at 10 am. It's not a big issue but it was discomforting compared to other generator hostels that let people stay until 11. It could be that one of them made a mistake, I do not know.
- Comfy bed - Separate toilets & shower - Location
- Toilet & shower too cramped - No wash basin in the room itself (unlike Generator Copenhagen) - Staff were not very enthusiastic about helping
Convenient location, clean rooms, free wi-fi
Overpriced towels; bathroom and toilet in rooms are ridiculously small, those on the floor are rather dirty. Staff is not unfriendly, but I would say absolutely indifferent
close to train station nice rooms tourist information available
cleaniness staff location amenities
bed a bit too soft
Fantastic facilities. Great Wifi.
Really small and cramped toilets.
great location good room
the staff and receptionist are completely uninterested. worst check in of all. had me waiting for my key ridiculous amount of time.
I like the ambiance at the Hostel. Perfect place for people who want to enjoy their stay,
Location Wifi Free ticket printing
Shower place is too small
The location was perfect. It was nice to be able to step out of the train station and know exactly where to head. The USB ports on each bed were great for charging our phones, without having to use plug adaptors.
Perhaps due to our late arrival, the front door would only open with a room key... which is excellent when you are standing with all your luggage in the rain. We made eye contact with reception but were still only let in when another guest, outside smoking, used his room key to let us in. The toilet and shower in the room are each essentially a little plastic coffin and do not account for elbows. Our bunks were pushed into a corner against another set of bunks and we were unable to open nor use our storage lockers because of this.
