Good location, good facilities, quite clean
Made my reservation a week in advanced based on 24 hr check in. I arrived at 2 am after travelling for a full day. My bed wasn't ready and I had to wait over 10 minutes for them to find a bed for me and another 30 minutes for them to clean it. Time difference and travelling meant I was EXHAUSTED. They offered me a free breakfast until 10 am but because I was jet lagged and only get to sleep at 3 am...I slept in and missed it.
Very we'll run, like a good hotel. Very clean. Quiet enough even with two bars.
Can't make change in-hostel easily and machines like snacks and laundry don't take bills or cards.
I found the generator to be an awesome place to stay, the food was good, great location, clean rooms, friendly room mates and overall I didn't feel like I was in a hostel. Thank you Generator
Generator is very clean, you have free access to get in and out all night, there's a good bar with karaoke and other parties. Its a great place to meet friends and very close to the Russel square station and Kings cross.
The 5th floor bathroom had some problems and was smaller than the bathrooms on the other floors.
We really liked the hostel and its location. We loved the different themes for the floor and the beds were comfortable, the staff was helpful and nice and we really appreciated the massive drawers under the beds where we could lock up our things. Also the security was appreciated and made us feel safe.
There weren't many things we didn't like but the biggest one probably was the housekeeping and that during our stay (6 days) they did not clean the room once. Neither sweeping the floor or quickly wiping out the sink that was in the room. And the showers and toilets weren't that cleaned either nor was the bin emptied once. Everything else was top notch.
Location, price, clean, wifi
The wifi was great the rooms were fairly large, clean and modern. The staff were very friendly and happy to help with everything I asked.
In the shared shower facilities there was nowhere to keep my things. With only one hook outside the shower my clean dress fell into a puddle and got very wet. I would recommend they invest in some sort of shelf to keep your towel ect.
Relaxing areas as well as good bar and nightly entertainment. Good selection of beers and food. Great security in place
Good locagion. Good facilities and rooms.
For young people, amazing place, good common areas, washing machine, discopub, position ok, near underground and bus stop.
No microonde, no kitchen.
General facilities, reception staff, location and cleanliness all great.
The nighttime security stuff were rude and had an unnecessarily accusatory manor. Paying customers deserve to to treated with a little more respect. This is the only reason why I will not be returning to this otherwise brilliant hostel.
The design if the hostel and the travlers shop on the ground floor were very convenient.
The room where people chill and lying around wasnt too clean. The bathrooms and the toilets were difficult to use.
the snoring drunk man
location was great, as it was just within walking distance of the St. Pancras / King's Cross Station. The area is secure, too. The accommodation was better than most hostels I've been to.
Location is great, facilities, great wifi access in all areas
I was in a 4bed mixed room. snoring from another person kept me up all night :(
Great location. Walked everywhere.
Booked and paid for private twin but was put in quad share with 2 other guests. As this trip was a 21st gift, I wasn't aware a private room had been booked for me when I checked in so I didn't question it at the time. Was there in a heatwave so got very little sleep as the rooms were stifling hot.
The team was very helpful in all senses, the hostel felt very secure, The doormen were extremely nice except two of them. The food they cooked was good. Very nice place to meet new people. It was clean. It has a pub/bar at night..shame it closes so early.The location is absolutely perfect. I was very happy at the Generator, made very good friends there. Will definitely return and recommend!
They should organize more events such as pub-crawls, maybe some guided visits, themed parties. Probably have a wider range of offers in the menu. Other than that I loved everything!
Reading or Area to so some work till late at late to avoid, as light goes out in the rooms from 22:00.
toilet need more hangers and places to put personal items.
public area is good
The room smells bad. Very damp; bad air. No window, very dark even in the day time. Bed is too soft and is noisy at night. Not comfortable at all. Toilets and showers not clean enough.
bar cafe wifi social room powerpoints insocial room cafe and hallways.
lack of powerpoints in room.bed not long enough.
Excellent location, friendly staff, good WiFi, spacious lockers
Tiny rooms, inconvenient showers, horrible breakfast, overzealous security
Best wifi I've found in the past month. Food is decent in the restaurant.
No AC in room, so it gets really hot. If you're tall like me (6'4"), watch your head in the bathroom (at least on the fifth floor. The ceiling and pipes are really low.
The generator is clean the staff are friendly, there is a chill out zone and an on site bar. The food they serve is very tasty, an all round great hostel. The location is great! With pubs, parks, a small shopping centre, a 24hr tesco local, and easy access to the tube station, which is on the main Piccadilly line. It's also not too far from the centre of London by tube it takes minutes. I will be staying again!
The rooms don't have air con but fans are available at reception. But that's a small issue in comparison to how great the rest of the hostel is!
Great location and design of this hostel, great price too,would recommend and stay again!!
Cleanliness of the bedsheets, had stains on them.
