"New Years Eve in Barcelona"
The nature of this hotel/hostel provides guests with an informal, party like atmosphere filled with young travelers. We stayed in the hotel portion of the Generator and we were in one of the deluxe double bed rooms. Overall the stay was enjoyable, the hotel is close to public transportation, close to shopping and food. We did find the room to be smaller […] than we had expected, the balcony was bigger than our actual room. There are no TV's in the room, so something to consider. Additionally, we found the rate for the room to be higher than the value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall great place with many amenities"
Great people, reasonable price with activities, food, and many more amenities located off the beaten path but close to metro.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great new private hostel"
Great hotel. Okay here's the deal. It's a BRAND NEW HOSTEL... and it's a Hostel. It's not a Hotel. The bottom 4 floors are Hostel and the upper 3 are Hotel. Which means its a more exclusive and private hostel - which is exactly what I wanted. For one night I had a tour group on my floor - not the Hotel's fault - but the Hotel did EVERYTHING they could […] to help me. AND told the group they would have to be quiet or leave. They were very proactive and you can't ask for more. I was there a month ago and there was still construction on the 8th floor which was never a problem and I stayed on the 8th floor.... they moved me there by my request to be quieter after the Tour Group of highschoolers arrived. There is a bar downstairs where you can hang out. It is NOT for business travellers but IS for someone travelling to meet people and enjoy Barcelona. It's social without being rowdy and friendly without being too familiar. The rooms are amazing. I travel a lot and even new hotels can be terrible. This is a new and great little find. Enjoy it while it is new!! Lastly, the rooms are very simple and very cool. The design gets an A for making the most out what they did. It feels very well thought out, simple and stylish.

"Best 1 star hotel i've ever seen"
This hotel/hostel goes to show you can't judge a place on the number of stars. The public areas are very well furnished and spacious and the room was modern clean and with a large sunny balcony. The showers are the best!! I would stay in this Hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay"
We really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. It was cleaner than any of the 4 star hotels we stayed in. The location is good in terms of being next to metro stations. If you go, try to explore the neighbourhood the hostel is in though. We found some neat gems on our last day. We stayed during off season so it's hard to say if it is good for meeting other […] travelers. Overall it was a good experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great value hotel for long weekend in Barcelona"
First visit to a Generator Hotel - very impressed. A perfect choice for a long weekend in Barcelona as many hotels in the old town are very pricey, whereas this hotel is only a short walk from the nearest Metro station which in turn is only a couple of stops from the center of Barcelona. It is also only a 10-15 minute stroll to the Sagrada Familia, […] a bike hire shop is virtually next door and there are plenty of places to eat or drink nearby, including a great brew pub.

"centrally located in a quiet neighbourhood close"
The hotel is centrally located in a quiet neighbourhood close to transit and walking distance to many of the sites. It is brand new (it had been open less than 60 days when I stayed there) os the rooms are in good condition. Note: the hotel is also a hostel and so there is usually a lot of people coming and going; however, the hotel rooms are on a separate […] floor and are surprisingly quiet. My one complaint relates to staffing. The hotel is seriously understaffed which means that the poor people who work there, though very nice, are extremely overworked and trying to deal with too many things at one time. If management would hire a few more people this place would get a 5 in my books. Oh, and it would be nice if they supplied hair dryers for the hotel, even for a small fee.

"Fantastic Hotel, quirky decor with good location."
I had a fantastic room, large balcony with two sunloungers. I had booked a single room but it was large with two single beds. Lovely decor throughout and very clean. This continued throughout the hotel, I was very impressed. Connected to the hostel there was an excellent social aspect to this hotel so perfect if you want a bit of social scene too. Room […] was quiet. Location was about 20mins to plaza catalyuna, about a 10 Euro ride to La Ramblas and 40 Euro taxi to El Prat airport. Shower looked great, however the water temperature was VERY inconsistent. about 20 seconds nice and warm, 20 seconds cold. the pattern continued the duration of shower and each time I used it. Personally not a big deal, other than that was superb and staff were lovely. Would definitely stay again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We spent one week in Barcelona and chose Generator to be our location for the whole week. The premises are as nice as they are in the pictures, rooms are quite small (we had a hotel room for two persons from the seventh floor) but I think that my holiday would be ruined if I'd spend more time in the hotel room, than required to sleep each night :) Service […] was very friendly, although we encountered some communication challenges due to employees English skills - nothing serious though! The rooms are nice and comfy but the bathrooms are starting to wear off a bit. Our shower dropped from the wall each time you close it... All in all a great hotel, staff and location. We can only highly recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Meget lækkert ophold, dog meget dyrt! Det er et lækkert hotel med mange unge mennesker boende, dog ikke noget, der generer. Lobbyen er rigtig hyggelig og trendy, og egentlig også meget kreativ, hvilket klart er i stil med Barcelona. Vores værelse (mig og veninde) var hyggeligt indrettet, meget smart og kreativt med tøjstativ af skøre materialer og fede […] prints på væggen. Toilettet var også fint. Værelset var småt, men en udmærket størrelse for os. Bruseren var i stykker, og faldt hele tiden af jernstangen, som den skulle hænge på, hvilket var ret irriterende, men det generede os ikke meget. Servicen var afhængig af, hvem man fik service af! Nogle var super venlige, andre var rigtig trælse og næsvise. Der var en vagt på hotellet, hvilket skabte tryghed. Servicen var derudover tilgængelig 24/7 - super lækkert! Vores nøglekort gik hele tiden i udu (hver dag), og når man kom op på værelset, kunne den ikke bruges, så måtte vi hele vejen ned fra 8. sal til stueetage, for at få det rettet (og nogen gange var køen altså lang!). Kortene bliver "scannet" for at kunne bruges til ens værelse, og det gjorde de hele tiden om og om igen. De skulle evt. finde et nyt system! Ellers lækkert ophold med super ikke-turistet beliggenhed!

위치는 시끄럽지 않은 곳에 있어서 조용히 지낼 수 있었어요. 밤 늦게 들어온적도 있었는데 골목 안에 있지만 동네 자체가 위험하지 않아 안전했어요. 방은 좁지만 깨끗하게 관리가 잘 되어 있었습니다. 혼자 머무는데 침대 두개짜리를 줘서 침대 하나로 바꿔줄수 있냐니까 얼굴 굳히면서 단호하게 안된다고 하더라구요. 혹시 혼자 머무시는 분들은 요청란엔 침대 하나짜리 방 달라고 하세요. 라운지보고 고른건데 라운지는 사진이 훨씬 이쁘고 아침식사 한끼 했는데 먹을만 했습니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Sicher einer der Top-Deals in Barcelona"
Das Hostel und das Hotel sind beide sicher eine tolle Erfahrung. Sehr cooler Style, viele junge Leute (ja, die es auch ein wenig krachen lassen - zu Recht!) und eine super Lage. Besser kann man für den Preis in Barecelona sicher kaum unterkommen. Das HOTEL-Zimmer hatte einen eigenen Balkon. Klar ist es nicht riesig, aber es war sauber, bequem und bot […] alles, was man für ein paar Nächte braucht. Absolute Empfehlung für Junggebliebe! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Snygg design i ett fantastiskt område!"
Generator gav en känsla av ett nytt fräscht och ungdomligt hotell. Mycket hotell för lite pengar. Vi hade terass mot innergården och var helt lugnt även om det var fest i hotellets bar och lounge. Väldigt bra service. Stormtrivdes och kan mycket väl tänka mig att komma tillbaka. Området Gracia som hotellet ligger i gav en fin smak av det vardagliga […] livet för Barcelonas invånare, dvs inte en syn av turister där. Rekommenderas starkt för er som uppskattar snygg design och en aktiv semester. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We stayed in this hotel for a week. Would certainly recommend it. Very decent room, nicely decorated, hip and brand new. I love the combination of hostel and hotel, you've got the backpacker's vibe downstairs and yet your own nice quiet private room upstairs (we stayed on 6th floor).

Wir hatten ein Zimmer im 7. Stock mit Terasse. Das Zimmer war schlicht eingerichtet, aber in sehr modernen Design. Das Personal stand immer für Fragen zur Verfügung und war sehr freundlich. Das Zimmer war sehr sauber, das Zimmermädchen hat mir sogar mein Nachthemd schön zusammengefalten. Die Lage des Hotels ist optimal. Sagrada Familia und Park Güell […] zu Fuss zu erreichen und die nächste U-Bahnstation ist auch gleich in der Nähe. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotellet var rent og ryddig. Lite bråk. Positivt med stikkontakter ved sengene, to til hver person. Det var et hotell med mye spennende interiør, bar, kafe, oppholdsrom, gratis wifi, biljardbor osv. Frukosten var dårlig, det var bare loff og søte bakevarer som ble servert, i tillegg til ost og skinke. Det var òg av og til egg og bacon...Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Bra billigt hotell med terass (deluxe rum)"
Jag och min flickvän stannade två nätter på detta hotell. Halva huset är Generator Hostel (Vandrarhem) och andra halvan (övre halvan) är hotell. Vi bodde i ett "deluxe-rum", väldigt bra rum även om kvaliteten verkar variera (i vårt första rum hörde man ett dovt ventilationsljud som jag hade haft svårt att sova till), dessutom var rummet med två enkelsängar […] utan möjlighet att flytta ihop dom till en dubbelsäng. (Enligt personalen har de flesta rum separata enkelsängar) Dom var dock väldigt hjälpsamma och gav oss ett av de rum som har två sängar som sitter ihop. Bägge rummen vi var i hade en terrass på närmare 25kvadratmeter! Vi är väldigt nöjda och stannar med stor sannolikhet på detta hotell igen nästa gång vi är i barcelona!, men vi kommer vara noggrannare att specifiera att vi vill ha ett tyst rum och att det ska vara dubbelsäng! Läget var väldigt bra. Precis i kanten på Gracia kvarteren, 10-15min promenad från centrum/gamla stan, 5-10min till Sagrada Familia. Många restauranger, fik, supermarkets o.s.v i närheten.

"Gutes Hotel für Kurzurlauber"
Der Hotelbereich ist noch neu und modern eingerichtet. Die Räume sind sauber und ordentlich, bieten aber nur das nötigste: Bett/en, einen kleinen Schreibtisch, einen Stuhl und Sessel. Für uns war das ausreichend und für 4 Nächte können wir auch gut aus dem Koffer leben. Das Personal ist freundlich und spricht mehrere Sprachen. Die Lage des Hotels ist […] sehr gut, weil Zentral in der Stadt. Die nächste Haltestelle der Metro ist zu Fuß in 8 Minuten zu erreichen. Sehr unzufrieden waren wir mit dem Frühstück. Für 7 Euro war die Qualität nicht befriedigend. Es kam immer wieder zu langen Staus vor der Kaffeemaschiene und Croissant und andere Gebäckteilchen waren zum Teil nicht fertig gebacken. Alles in allem waren der Preis für das Hotel, die Lage und auch die Sauberkeit der Zimmer zufriedenstellend. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"best hostel in the world"
08/19/14 elbandido123 Vienna, Austria
Almost perfect. The design, the rooms the cleanliness and free wifi...i also really liked the location! Yeah it is more like a hotel, not a hostel...but i met some great people during my stay, so i can't blame the hostel about socializing - it isn't their job to make people more open and friendly! :) Thank you Generator BCN, i hope i can try the other ones soon!
"Generator Rip you off."
08/18/14 Rebecca B Leeds, England, United Kingdom
Generator have created a brand that steers away from what a 'hostel' is. They have hundreds of rooms, and not enough staff to provide a quick and easy service. There is a lack of cooking facilities and the food they offer is expensive for the average quality you receive. The staff were impersonal and rude. The hostel itself has cool interior design and the rooms are perfect in terms of the bunk beds that include individual lighting and plug sockets. It seemed to be full of large groups of school children, therefore even though there were lots of people there, no one seemed to be bothered about talking to you because they were already in large groups. I believe smaller hostels would give you better value for money, more enjoyable stay and increase the likeliness of meeting nice people.

Me and my ombré stayed for 7 days in a 6 bed dormitory. The general atmosphere was very friendly. The showers are magnificent, the beds clean and the busy bar was enough to keep us content with not venturing out for nightlife. The only downside - Take a towel and toiletries and a padlock! (That's where they get you).
"Wish to stay in a nightclub?"
08/10/14 Lydia Cheyenne N
Yikes! I stayed one night here, and it was like sleeping in a nightclub filled with boozey spring breakers- which will be great if that's what you're looking for. I was looking for a good nights sleep, which was not to be had. Staying here, at least in summer, was like staying in a cleaner frat house
"New facilities with Lift, great breakfast"
08/06/14 Agnes Y Hong Kong, China
Buffet breakfast only costs 4.5 euro. Provide printing, lounging service which is very convenient to the backpackers! The first floor is near the bar area which is under the control of Generator! The second floor provides us with many many games & internet services! Provided all you need! The room is new and I stayed in 6-people dorm and met a neighbour from Denmark its always a nice chance to exchange culture and meet new friends. Apart from the toilet in the dorm, you may also use the public bathroom which is located in every floor. Its marvalous! Location is good, Five minutes to ten minutes walk to the famous spots! 2 mins to the supermarket and 5 mins to the main bus station!
"My favorite hostel on my 2 month eurotrip"
08/05/14 Natasha D
My friend and I booked here for 5 nights after being recommended it from another friend. The location was outside the main area which was nice to get away and only took 15-20 minutes with the metro. I highly recommend all travelers to get the T-10 pass to get around the city, it makes everything easier. The staff at the hostel were super cool and easy going yet helpful with anything you need. We stayed in an 8 mixed dorm and the space was cozy but every bed had a plug and their own light. The air conditioning, single washroom and shower worked perfectly. There were two sinks with mirrors that made getting ready simple. The entire hostel is decorated so uniquely and makes it a comfortable environment to be in. I highly recommend staying here! Check their website for deals! We found one for 15€ a night!

i recent stayed in this hostel was great. good price, great service and the people working there as really nice people. couldn't have ask for more. first night my sister and I had to share a room and it wasn't as bad i though it would be.. i would do it again for sure... and they also have breakfast for 5 euros which it cheaper then eating out in other pleases..
"Wouldn't rush back"
08/01/14 slinders2 Sydney, Australia
Stayed at the Generator Hostel for 4 nights and wasn't blown away. Not the greatest value for money - small rooms and not much included for the price. Washing is expensive, breakfast not included and there is no kitchen to cook/store your own food or alcohol, therefore making the whole experience more expensive than another hostel. However, it's clean, the bar is reasonably priced with a nice, social atmosphere, and there are nice facilities to relax, read and play pool (although, again, this costs extra....) Nice, modern hostel to be in, but wouldn't rush back.
"Very trendy boutique hostel"
07/28/14 Lharris4 Ithaca
The place is very well made, it is definitely on the luxury side for a hostel, it even has multiple hotel rooms including shampoo and towels like most hotels. The place looks incredible its like you are in a piece of very modern art, there are so many amenities like a foosball table, tv room, huge bar, cafe and more. If you are traveling with friends it is a great place to go. If you are traveling alone it will be difficult to meet people as it is too big and too nice. Most people there are not traveling alone, you will be a minority.
"great staff especially thanks Bea"
07/24/14 lovefiji2013 Miyagi
As many people said, this hostel has a convenient location, comfortable beds, functionally-designed rooms, clean sheets, a cheerful lounge and an energetic bar. Moreover, all staff members were very kind, pacient and understanding. Especially, one of the staff, Bea was very helpful. In fact, when my wallet was pickpocketed in the town, I told her and she advised me what to do and calmed me down warmheartedly. I really appreciate her, without her help I couldn't have managed it. Definitely, I'll stay here again when I have a chance to visit Barcelona. Again, thanks a lot Bea.
