This modern six-storey London hostel is set in the city center, in the heart of the West End, the area of Russell Square, only 500 meters from the British Library and 700 meters from King's Cross and Euston stations.
Pros: The hostel was very clean. The bathrooms were cleaned every few hours. There was a nice mix of travelers,young and old,people travelling in groups and lone travelers. There were also young families and babies. Lots of people ,lots of activity.
At night ,there was added security in the building.
I was very happy with the Generator Hostel.Cons: The mornings were rough .You had to time it right to get a sink in the bathroom. Everyone seemed to need the showers at the same time. You just have to try to avoid the busy times.
Pros: The atmosphere was amazing, the common areas were decorated impeccably, the staff were genuinely friendly, and the ground floor had enough chill out/get rowdy/eat food areas that a) you could always find a space suitable for your mood, and b) the rooms stayed quiet and peaceful. Also, the number of outlets was astounding, and the WiFi excellent, even though my room was on the fifth floor.Cons: The toilets were backed up a few times. It was always fixed quickly, but the frequency of blockages was a little concerning.
Pros: Location was great, café downstairs was fine.Cons: It was loud, hard to get sleep at night. I could hear my neighbors through the walls and when the doors shut it is really loud and echoes down the hallway.
A good experiencePros: It was all clean, the staff is nice and there is a good mood thereCons: They didn't provide padlock for luggage lockers
