Generator Hostel Hamburg Reviews

Generator Hostel Hamburg is an ok offering from the Generator chain, which has hostels all around Europe.

The Location

The hostel is located right next to the train station and the bus station, which is convenient for those traveling with train and with FlixBus. The train to the airport is also across the street. It is a big building, which can be spotted very easily.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel offers dorm rooms of six or eight bunked beds and lockers for each guest, and private rooms. It also provides three power points for each bed, out of which two are USB sockets. For each bed there is also a lamp. Each dorm room has its own toilet and shower inside the room, plus common ones for each floor.

Bathrooms are clean but the ones inside the room are very small and it’s hard to change clothes. In addition there is no soap available, which we found inconvenient to wash our hands. Hot water is coming strong, and the shower -- even if small -- is enjoyable. Having the bathroom inside the room could be annoying at night, as it might be noisy if people shower. A good note is that toilet and shower are in two small separate rooms, as in the pictures.

Common Spaces

There is a bar next to the reception, and another bar more for a nightlife scene. There is also a restaurant in another room, but sometimes it is reserved to large groups and unfortunately we couldn’t use it. Unfortunately it does not offer a kitchen where guests can make their own meals.

On the first floor there is a relaxing area with sofas and three computers free for the use for guests. The atmosphere in the bars is relaxed, but not much is going on. It is more a place where guests have a drink in a quiet environment, rather than a party place. It seems to attract a bit older customers looking for a quiet place, rather than young backpackers looking for a social party hostel.

In addition, a good note is that there are card games available, and a table tennis table and a foosball table on the terrace of the bar.


The hostel looks very nice and clean, both from the outside (building) and the inside. Beds are also comfortable and offer you a good sleep. The price is above average compared to other hostels in Hamburg. The location is very convenient when you arrive in Hamburg, but definitely not the best for going out in the evening. The main party area in hamburg is St. Pauli, which is in the opposite city of the city, though still reachable with the metro.

We suggest this hostel if you are twenty-five or older and looking for a quiet place to relax after a day out exploring. However we do not suggest it for young travelers on a budget who look for a fun atmosphere and who wish to be next to the main nightlife spots.

St. Georg is one of the coolest and most central areas in Hamburg and this is where you will find Generator. It’s right next to the central train station in the city center. On the doorstep are great attractions such as Deichtorhallen, Landungsbruecken, Harbour City as well as the historical Speicherstadt or the famous Reeperbahn. When you have seen and done it all head back to Generator and soak up the atmosphere. It’s a destination in its own and a great place to socialise and reflect on your experiences of the day. Head to the bar and chill out areas to get yourself a well deserved drink or. We’ve also great beds for sleepy heads and of course you’ll be enjoying Hamburg life in the most stylish and authentic surroundings.
