    Cold and boring staff. Not warm and including as it should be in a hostel. No information given at check in. Bad shower facilities.

    Good location. But they changed my package fee. Almost no hostel does that after you check out leave your suitcase at reception.

    The location is centric and it is relatively cheap

    The beds did not have enough space between each other. Even though there was an elevator to get to my floor, I had to take the stair after the elevator to get to the room and I was carrying heavy luggage. The lock from one of the showers did not work. The hallway to get to the room was not very clean.

About

Overview

Guests visiting London and searching for affordable accommodations within easy reach of all that greater London has to offer will find that the Generator London is a good choice. This is a hostel property that offers dormitory-style rooms with few frills. However, it is within easy reach of most of London’s top attractions, including the British Library, The Foundling Museum, The Postal Museum, the Charles Dickens Museum, Covent Gardens, Regent’s Park, and a great deal more.

The 210 rooms within Generator London offer dormitory-style sleeping arrangements, with eight beds per room. The rooms are climate controlled and include a safe for personal valuables. All rooms are also nonsmoking. Note that there are female-only dorms available. A limited number of private twin rooms are available, as well.

While the rooms might provide only basic amenities, the property itself offers quite a lot. For instance, there is a café on site. There is also a travel shop where guests can pick up sundries and such. Free Wi-Fi is provided throughout the property, and there is also a bar here where guests can grab a quick drink. The laundry area offers self-service cleaning, and there is event space on offer, too. Luggage storage and a chill-out area complete the picture.

While the hostel does offer a café on property, guests will also find there are over 150 restaurants within less than a half-mile’s walk. These include Aux Pains de Papy, and Albertini Restaurant for Italian fare. Cappadocia is an Italian café, while Pizza Sophia also serves up Italian fare. Other options include The Banc, Patisserie Deux Amis, and North Sea Fish Restaurant.
