facilities, location, cleaniness was all very well. The bar had a really good athmospfere and the food they served was good!
not so friendly frontdesk staff
excellent for all ages. especially good for families with teens or teen travellers. excellent staff. excellent cleanliness.
Menu in cafe a bit limited.
Loved Vasil the bar tender. He was such a great guy and showed my friend's, and my husband and I some amazing tricks. It was great entertainment and was so ethnic really different than other hostels vie stayed in.
There were no hairdryers available unless you were staying in a female dorm. I was with my husband and two of our friends in a bunk room. We are in our 40s and 50s we would have liked a hairdryer either from reception on hire or in the bathroom. Maybe next time.
The hotel was in a great location, close to Russell Square, a grocery store, and a hop on-hop off bus stop. The bar and cafe downstairs were a great place to wind down at the end of the day. Friendly staff.
Other (loud) guests. Not much that can be done about that, though. The room was very stuffy in the afternoons, even with both fans turned on.
Our stay at the Generator hostel in London was great! Great bar, very nice staff, very good restaurant (they even help me since I'm vegan and I didn't have much to have on the menu) The rooms and showers are very clean, and it was a great choice. I'm, very happy with it! Totally recommended!
Bed. One guard man at the entrance was really rude.
The atmosphere, lobby and location is ideal. The staff are also patient and helpful.
- was given the private foursome room (even though I booked the six-person dorm) which was too cramped. If you are a solo traveler, do not get this room because there's too little privacy and no room for moving around - was given the wrong room + couldn't take the stench of two roommates who didn't bathe after a drinking night, so I had to switch rooms. the latter only happens when you are put in the small private 4-person room. - there is only one small lift serving the hostel and it is very inconvenient for people staying in the 5th and 6th floors. - everything extra is charged even though this is a relatively more expensive hostel (e.g. luggage on the last day, locks, towels etc.) :(
I was really pleased with the place. Great and modern facilities. It has a nice vibe for young people and families with kids. It's located very close to Russell square tube station and nice neighborhood. It's very safe.
Quite large room, little sink in the room, great location, clean, strong wifi and towels.
We had only one light in the room, shower curtain instead of a door at the showers.
It was too warm at night
Friendly staff, clean, comfy beds
Great location, close to the Underground and you can walk to high street shopping. We had a 4-bed room (2 bunk beds) for three people and it was great to have a sink in there. It was clean, the bathrooms were never busy, and the building has security. It wasn't too noisy in the halls or outside. Location was the best though - you can walk to the national rail stations and it's easy to get on the Underground going straight to Heathrow.
All the dishes and cutlery were dirty at breakfast and the food wasn't coming out fast enough to keep up with the flow of people so we waited around a long time for them to put out more. They have bag storage, but it's not free. You rent large, medium, or small lockers from them.
Confortable beds, quiet rooms, good wifi and a nice atmosphere
Clearly not enough space in the showers and discomfort (nowhere to put clothes, you have to enter naked in the showers, which not everyone is ready to do). Toilets were clogged up most of the time.
Gret location and helpful staff
Staff was great and very helpful. The club and bar where very entertaining and also had good prices. Definitely going back soon.
- nice staff - localisation - atmosphere - decent breakfast - conveniences
- not the cleanest cutlery in the kitchen
-Staff really helpful - Well located - Cleanliness and organization
- only 1 elevator - They should have a vigilant during nightshift checking noisy rooms.
We loved the energetic, friendly atmosphere, the funky design and the really convenient, but quiet location. Our room was situated just above the bar and live music, but it didn't disturb us at all and we slept really well.
We liked everything about the place. It surpassed our expectations and we'd definitely recommend it to friends of all ages.
Very loud music on the Friday night which kept everyone awake. We were then told the next day that 4 members of the group in the room between myself and our other friends were 'too loud' by a security guard and that they were keeping the rooms either side awake. The people in the rooms either side of them were myself and two others and on the other side another 3 members of our group and we were not approached by any security guard and we heard no noise whatsoever apart from the thumping music from two floors below. In my opinion the rules regarding noise are therefore a little contradictory and I also find the attitude of the security guard to be very arrogant as well as slightly childish and uneducated. Apart from that the stay was fine.
Pretty much everything. The Generator is in a great spot. Close to underground etc. I would love to return someday. loved the common areas. Bar etc.
There was nothing I really didn't like. My room was a little small but having my own private bathroom made up for that.
Location, funky rooms, clean and comfortable. Lovely security guard who stands out the front during the day and very helpful
Very basic breakfast that wasn't very appetising. felt too busy and corwded, people going in/out of rooms at all times
I love this hostel so much! I recommend it completely. Perfect for a solo traveller who wants to meet like minded travellers! I made life long friends from staying there a week!
