The Hostelz.com Review

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.

Summary

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.

Bit too impersonal

Having stayed at the generator hostel in dublin, I had high expectations for this one as well. Unfortunately, it did not live up to the quality of its brethren. The location is excellent, literally right across the street from the main train station and there are multiple supermarkets just a block away. regrettably, there is no kitchen to make full use of those markets. This hostel can be a little too large for the solo traveler, as the common areas' layout can make it hard to meet people. Nice beds, and a locker for every person. The building lacks atmosphere and the staff always seem to be a little harried. Overall, an average hostel.

Showers too small

this is perhaps for younger crowd the building itself is nice and clean. The staff is more informal then you would find a smaller Hostel. the location was amazing right across the street from the train station, but my roommates they were coming in loud not caring if anyone was asleep.
