"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.

"overall very good"
Friendly service and very clean stayed in the hotel part of the hotel/hostel. The only flaw is they didnt allow me to bring liquor up to my roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Generator Hotel Barcelona Dear traveller, Thanks for having your time to share your opinion after staying with us. I will transmit it to the team, it is really helpful for us. Apologise if we ask please to enjoy the drinks in the bar area. We appreciate very much your comments and we hope to welcome back in the future. Enrique Portales, Generator Barcelona GM
"Hotel as part of the Hostel"
Chose to stay in the Hotel part of the Hostel. The Hostel/Hotel was new, very modern, arty and cool with great bar areas (and reasonably priced cocktails and snacks) and places to hang out - shame the photobooth wasn't working throughout our stay though! Location was great, close to 2 metro stations, but in walking distance of most touristy spots and […] easy to get to and from the airport. Room was spacious and well designed, though I didn't think to request a balcony room. I tried requesting a double bed ahead of stay but could only offer a twin room (more doubles in Hotel section please!) The Hostel was busy, but Hotel is private and quiet and while there was entertainment most nights it wasn't overbearing to those who opted out. Bit of confusion with Expedia booking about payment, but easily rectified - reception staff weren't as friendly as other Hotels/Hostels I've stayed in before. Would recommend and stay again, and would consider staying in a Generator elsewhere in the world. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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
"stanza grande ma spartana"
La nostra camera era spaziosa, come anche il bagno, ma dotata dei soli servizi minimi: no tv, il bagno era dotato solo di una saponetta e di un dispenser di bagnoschiuma, non c'era neanche un bicchiere per gli spazzolini, non c'era un asciugacapelli, non c'era una tenda per il box doccia per cui si allagava il pavimento. In compenso la camera era pulita […] e la posizione dell'hotel è eccellente. Per il prezzo che abbiamo corrisposto mi sarei aspettata qualche dotazione in più.

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!

"Det var ganska centralt, och var nära tunnelbana."
Barcelona är en trevligt stad, och framförallt mycket rent och med god mat.Genuine Expedia guest review
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

"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

"Decent stay, bonus balcony!"
09/15/14 Andrew W Cardiff, United Kingdom
We stayed at the Generator for one night during a trip to Andorra. We flew into the main Barcelona airport jumped on a train to the main station and then it was about a 6-7 minute taxi ride away. I was really impressed by the decor (it looked like a yoga retreat) we were a party of 4 and have two bunkbeds on level 3 and as the title suggests a balcony! bonus! The lifts threw us abit as you need to put your key card in the slot before pressing your floor but its all good fun! We stayed on a Sunday night, we ate at an Asian restaurant across the road called Luiz II had egg, sausage and chips all for 5 euros bargain! We walked to Las Rambles (10 mins away) for a few beers and when we returned the hostel bar was buzzing! The bouncer did take a dislike to me as I took my shoes off and started chanting Wales songs and he threw me out, but I wont hold that against him. Really really good hostel!
"Huge and fancy "
09/13/14 Julia W Brisbane, Australia
Designed really well and has lots of facilities. Stayed in a 6bed female dorm with private bathroom which was spacious and clean. Wifi works excellently throughout. The only thing is that the hostel is a bit overwhelming for a solo traveller due to it's size.
"Good location and funky interior"
09/13/14 Viktor L Stockholm, Sweden
Me and my girlfriend stayed for 7 nights. The receptionist was nice and friendly, and she gave us some advice on where we should go that's not so "touristy". The interior is really cool, both in the lobby as well in the room. The terrace was as big as the room but maybe it would've been used more if there was a little nicer furniture. The beds was not the best but definitely not the worst I've seen. It was all clean and nice. Although I advice to get some own soap, shampoo and shower gel, at least if you care about that kind of stuff. Also beware of the shower getting quite hot if any of your neighbours flushes their toilets. Those where just minor flaws on an overall good experience though. Furthermore the location is good, not too far from the city Center but still away from the worst tourist areas. There's a lot of nice restaurants, bars and also some shopping to be done in just a 10 block range. Considering the price, this is a bargain!
"Class Journey to Barcelona"
09/11/14 Daniel H Bordesholm, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany
We stayed at our class trip in this Hostel in the centre of Barcelona. It's possible to reach the rammlas and the old City without taking a long way. Also there is the tube station Diagonal. The rooms are all climated so you can cool down after a day at the beach.
Stayed here for my stag weekend a few months back. A fantastic hostel and very well priced, bar area was superb with big pull down screen for footie and rooms did the job! Had 2 x 6 bed rooms which had small toilet and shower which was a little cramped but enough. Staff were brilliant and very helpful. Highly recommended and good location too!
"Feels like you're on a school trip. Clean but no atmosphere"
09/05/14 dukeinbatcountry Lisbon, Portugal
Were there in peak season but there was no hostel-like atmosphere. You can't bring alcohol to your rooms or the common areas but have to buy it there (its expensive at their bar). Many school trips were there, since its very clean, and organized. VERY expensive for a hostel...
"A hostel in the heart of Barcelona!"
09/03/14 Tee S London, United Kingdom
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Generator Hostel. I stayed with a friend in the all female 6-bunk dorm and when I first arrived I didn't like it as the other girls had left their things all over the room and it didn't look very clean. But I grew to love it as I got to know my room mates. The lounge area is really chilled and they hold different events at the hostel too which livens it up. Advantage: In the centre of Barcelona, the metro station (Diagonal) is 2 minutes away, restaurants and cafes close by, good value for money, events, meet new people Disadvantage: The dorm I stayed in wasn't very clean, can be noisy because of traffic Overall, it's a fab place to stay and would definitely recommend it!!!
"Nice hostel to be in barcelona"
08/31/14 Alfredo L Caracas, Venezuela
The staff is very nice, the decoration is amazing, it has free wifi, is near of the Sagrada Familia (20 mins by walk), have a nice bar and is in the nice neighbour of Gràcia, also is near of the Diagonal Av., has a good communication with the rest of the city.
"good commom areas but rooms not so good"
08/25/14 Lara_Pereira Brasilia, DF
the hostel is beatiful and nicely decorated in the commom areas. The staff is helpfull and friendly. good location, near the metro station. The rooms are not very good, though. You can't open the window (well, it opens just a few centimeters) so the room is not ventilated. Bathrooms are too small and were always dirty.
