My stay has not occurred because they took my money and canceled my staying because, even if it was “paid for and secured”, I arrived the next day.

Very nice for the price!
I stayed at a single room with 2 beds and own bathroom. For the price it is a very nice place, everything you need, nothing more, but at a very low rate as well. The lounge area is nice and you can meet some great people while travelling. The rooms are very basic and quite small, but for a place to keep your stuff and have a bed to sleep in, it's perfect.

The location was quite convenient, located near by one S train staion and one tram station. Overall, the whole facility looks old. The elevator functioned only one of them! For 6-7 floors building, this was quite an issue! We booked the quadruple room, two bunk beds. The room was ooay in general. The cleanliness was kind of an issue though. The bed and floor were clean, but the wall and shelf were dusty. The sink in the room had problem with drainage. The bathroom and shower room were below par if compare with other Generator Hostel we’ve been before. The staffs were nice as always with Generators. They were kind and helpful. Good human service, below average facility

Clean and convenient
Basic rooms but very clean and the staff were helpful. It's right next to a tram stop and metro stop so easy access into the centre of town. We stayed in a twin room which was very small but otherwise fine. Be warned that although the website says towels are provided in private room when we arrived staff at the desk informed us that they were only provided in some of the private rooms (?)

OK but not the best Generator.
I had to make the beds as the linens were not even put under the mattresses in properly. Hand soap in the shower, normally special "all around" in Hamburg Generator. No soap at all for the hands (unless you reached for it in the shower) Other than that it was all good, the lobby was like Generator in Hamburg but did not get a chance to eat here sadly. Food looked good though. A little annoying with only 1 working elevator but thats what happens sometimes. Thanks.

Spot on for the price, a bed, a window, curtains a locked door and a place to shit, shower and brush your teeth. Highly recommended. There was even a hair dryer which was a bonus!! Location spot on literally 2 mins walk in to Landsberger Allee station which will take you anywhere in Berlin with ease.
