Perfect for a week-end with friends, it is very good located and very afordable. We discovered a lovely street in which there are some wonderful restaurants and coffee. With the bus, it's possible to go to the beach in 20 minutes aproximately.
I would not recommend staying at The Generator if you value comfortability/sleep quality and cleanliness. The 6 dorm female bedrooms have little to no space in them; it was a squeeze getting past other people. I did not sleep well at all; I kept waking up in the middle of the night because I was awoken by this terrible smell that was coming from the dorm (en-suite) bathroom. It smelt of urine and sewage. I could not spend another night there. Sadly for me I had paid for 3 nights and was not offered a refund. It’s not really that social either - if you are looking for a place to mingle and meet people; I wouldn’t recommend. I’m glad I left on the first night because I would have been miserable for the whole time. Two members of staff were friendly and one of the staff me members just didn’t seem approachable at all. …
Very nice place not so far from the Sagrada familia, the room is very clean and tidy, the bed linen is clean, its safe to stay in hotel, some small table and chair in room is required, the stuff is very helpful and friendly, highly recommend to visit
I've stayed in two different Generator locations and both times they were packed with children and teenagers. It was just an awkward stay and I wouldn't book again because I did not want to spend my time trying to navigate through a million of children.
The good-all the staff I interacted with were friendly and helpful. The ok-the location is decent-close to metro stations and lots of bus lines, though not super central for sightseeing. The bad-the bathrooms, both in rooms and communal, were unclean, especially the showers. Room was cramped and in need of more storage space. No paper towels or hand towels anywhere. No curtains around the beds for privacy, and I didn’t have a shelf to place personal belongings. Must pay to store luggage after checkout. Room was very hot and there was lots of noise, which made getting a full night’s rest difficult. One guest’s phone charger got stolen during our stay. One guest brought a drunk man into our all-female dorm, and he made the rest of us extremely uncomfortable by attempting to sleep in the room. While their behavior isn’t the hostel’s fault per say, more security to get into the dorms would be appreciated. …
Was expecting a room like any other hotel we have stayed. The bed was a king and left approximately 1’ of space on either side. Bathroom sink was a joke with a shelf hanging over it. Unable to wash your face
Kitchen poorly equipped. Too many school kids and families with toddlers. Not what you expect from a hostel. What kind of hostel doesn’t allow outside food? They want money from you for all kinds of additional purchases. Would not recommend. None of the benefits of staying in a hostel.
The place is decent, room of 4 is clean upon arrival, and entry desk staff is nice. Elevators are buggy - don't go to your floor and take a very long time. The big thing for me in hostels is to have a locker to keep your things safe. THEY DO NOT PROVIDE LOCKERS - they provide a drawer, and you can purchase a lock nearby.
Besides the fact that the crew couldn't put me and my mom in the same bedroom, since the system got us separate bedrooms, our experience was great. The hostel is so beautiful, comfortable and have a really good vibe. I definitely recommend it
Don't visit this hostel. I arrived at 1am to check-in and was turned away because I was told that my reservation was for the next night. In reality, I had a booking for that evening - as demonstrated by an email confirmation, and the fact that I was charged for it the next day. I have tried contacting the hostel multiple times, both via email and phone, have heard nothing back. They have not refunded me, which is quite frankly pathetic. The first time I called, they told me they would call or email me back to further discuss the situation and I have heard nothing. Stay away from this hostel.
