Modern, chic - fashion, cleaniness , excellent services, near to russell square tube station, fast wifi
Should put some sign board from the tube station to the hostel
Was a friendly atmosphere
Very nicely laid out, lots of personality. Lots of different things to do in the hostel. Toilets and rooms were very clean!
Lift was broken and I was booked in on the 5th floor, not great when spending the day walking around London and then having to climb 5 flights of stairs.
The hostel ambiance
Breakfast was horrible and very poor attention to cleaning (dirty spoons with the rests of food inside the "clean" cutlery).
Location, cleaness, morden
No hot water on our last day, elevator did not work early in the morning, heater was not on all the time and when it was on it was not warm. Our room as freezing
Great location and low cost. Good food and fun bar.
Didn´t like the wc and the showers, no privacy.
I usually stay with friends in London but I preferred to stay in Generator because of how easy and cheap it was. It’s central, warm, perfect security outside the hostel and inside the rooms with big lockers for your whole backpack, internet is very fast, the restaurant and bar and big and welcomy which invites to socialize. The staff was excellent, helped me out with everything I needed even when I asked them to change my room because I changed my mind and wanted only girls. Every room has several electricity plugs and a sink. It is so comfortable and easy that I would stay any time.
Some school kids or teenagers running and screaming around. At night all the toilets were clogged!
The design and facilities were great, and the breakfast very good value for money. The bed was super comfortable.
the bathrooms were hard to find, and far away from the room, and the room small.
location is really good, just a few minutes to the Russal Picaddilly Station, there is also several markets near the hotel. The securaty guard is very resiponsible, they will check everyone when enter the hotel. The bar and the activities in the hotel is great.Generally speaking, the hotel is clean.
When I checked in, the stuff tell me they have no more 8 beds room for me, but what I booked is 8 beds room. The 10 beds room only has 4 power sockets and not bedside lamp for each, that is not convenience.
Close to Russell Square and Euston train stations. Good security for a hostel as they stationed someone at the door to check that you have valid booking documents before letting you in.
Room got a bit cold at night as it's winter though the heater was working.
We enjoyed our stay! We recommend this hostel for those who are in London for a few days.
The neighbors were too noisy.
Value of money Location High quality hostel
Few showers per floor Repetitive and limited breakfast
Great location and safe
Toilets were constantly blocked and not clean
Location is quite good, the atmosphere was nice! There`s a small movie room as well- that was cool, also a chill-out room was a grate bonus. Definitely order sweet potatoes fries- yum!
The smell. The room smelled bad- like dirty socks, corridor as well. In general the stink of old socks was pretty much everywhere- movie room, chillout room... I asked at the reception to do something about the ventilation in the room, but as it turned out- everything had been done. Well, I would suggest to insert bigger tubes for ventilation, or allow to open windows fully, not just a small fraction. The smell was so bad that it was hard to sleep in the room. Also I think it`s permanent there, because the ventilation doesn`t do much.
Very friendly, very clean, good location, just 2 stops from Covent Garden. Had a own bathroom. It was very modern. I would come back for my next visit
hostel is in great location to tube, grocery stores, restaurants; hostel is clean and bright. Our one night was upgraded to a private room with private bathroom as the elevator was not working; the room was great!
Not being able to heat up food or water (in microwave).
The many rooms like the bar, the modern and confortable place, the kindness of the security staff and the fact that it was near st pancras, which is a real plus!
The room was pretty small but it was okay
Very close to st. pancras and a half hour walk to Leicester square and Covent Garden. Nice facilities in the hostel: bar, cafe, lounging area. Showers are clean.
Location, Food was good for the price, shared bathroom facilities were ok.
6 beds in the shared dorm were crammed in, security guard at front door was a bit pushy.
Everything was perfect
There were many facilities such as the cafe.. the bar etc.. the 24h reception and the free wifi everywhere. It was in a 5' walk from the tube and 10' walk from the British museum
Hygine of women Toilets.. The toilets were far from the last rooms as ours at the floor..
Clean rooms and beds. Good location. Polite and helpful staff. There is a nice lounge space downstairs, with a bar, pool room, movie room ...
The room for four people was too small. Not enough space for four people to be in the room or keep their stuff. The toilets and bathrooms were not very clean. A lot of the times the toilets were clogged and the bins dirty. Breakfast was nothing special, but the price was ok.
Great location. Free wi-fi. Friendly staff. Rooms are very quiet. Decent laundry and dryers.
Room for 4 people is really small. It's also very humid, and the windows leak (it was raining). No bed curtains and lights. You can not rent a towel, you can only buy one. Breakfast is not included in the price.
It was super clean & the staff were really nice!
good Wifi, clean & comfort twin beds room with shared bathroom good location of London, staff kindly & helpful, 24 hr reception
not allow visitor to enter & difficult to see the hostel entry & price too high for weekend day
