"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

"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
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.

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

ca. 5 min. gange til metrostasjonen "Diagonal". Nyoppusset og rent hotell. Stort rom, men litt hard seng. Ingen TV, for de som måtte ønske dette. Spillrom. Bar med matservering og noe stive priser. Gratis wifi på hele hotellet. Rolig område, men ikke likevel sentralt.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.
"Good experience but with some flaws"
07/22/14 gracedren Lisbon, Portugal
Stayed in a 6 mixed dorm room, when I arrived the employees were very helpful and nice, everything is accessed with your key, so it's safe. The hostel has parties and music every night which is nice and the decoration is awesome. On the other side, breakfast is horrible, if it's not included in your reservation you have to pay 4€ for a terrible breakfast, so better go elsewhere. The bar/restaurant is super expensive, paid 3€ for a regular beer and the food is not good. Location is very good and well connected. Overall it was a good experience except for the bar/restaurant and breakfast.
"Very good for a Hostel"
07/21/14 Albert M London, United Kingdom
I wouldn't call myself a typical hostel-goer. I can definitely afford a nicer hotel, but usually choose to stay at a simpler and more reasonably priced hotel so I can spend more money on dining and other activities. A friend recommended Generator to me because it is a new concept of an upscale hostel, combining the best of a boutique design hotel and a youth hostel. Generator had a more traditional hostel section of the building, and another area with private rooms, which I elected. My room was well designed, spotless and had a comfortable bed. The social areas of the hostel were great and the location in the city was unbeatable.
"Great hola to Spain"

Bright colours and cleanliness. This hostel would have to be my favourite in all of Europe! I was in a 6 bed dorm and it was perfect, a little more room would of been nice. Facilities were new and easily worked. Food good and staff friendly! overall just amazing!
"Trendy bed in great Barcelona neighborhood"
07/15/14 TheAmados Sao Paulo, SP
Trendy hostel and hotel in Barcelona, the Generator is a great place to stay. I had the chance to stay with them in Denmark and loved the experienced. Barcelona was no different. We stayed in an en-suite room and even though the room was small, the huge window and beautiful view really made up for it. Decoration is really trendy and the whole place has a nice vibe to it. As the Generator in Denmark, this one was very clean and people were attentive. Great localization, close enough to everything, but immersed in a true Barcelona neighborhood. If you ever come to the city, this is a great place to stay.
"lovely stay in Barcelona!"
07/14/14 asha b Toronto, Canada
Generator Barcelona was a great place to stay overall, though it was a bit of a metro ride from the beach, montjuc and the barri gothic. We stayed in an 8 person dorm, which was a little small on walking space between the beds, but had lots of storage, good lockers, two sinks and separate bathroom and shower facilities. We never had to wait for a shower, as there is a very clean extra shower room as well. There's lots of space to hang out in common areas as well, so the size of the room wasn't too much of a problem either. Best of all, the beds were very comfortable, had their own light and outlet, and the sheets were changed every day. The hostel also had lots of events and two eating areas as well as a breakfast cafeteria with cheap food and drinks, and was open later than many neighbouring establishments. A little disappointing was the lack of kitchen, but the food sold there was reasonably priced, as long as you're expecting to buy most meals out. The location was nice, just up from ave diagonal, which was a fancy shopping area, so it felt safe, even late at night. It's walking distance from the sagrada familiar and parc guell, however we found we took the metro a good deal, and bought the 10 trip metro pass for our four night stay. Overall, the stay was lovely, the staff, rooms and restaurant were great, but you might want to look at where you want to go in Barcelona before committing.

This was our starting point for a 2 week Europe trip and it was the perfect start. We had booked a private twin room and were upgraded to a Deluxe room on the hotel side. We had an amazing balcony with lounge chairs and a great view of the mountain. It was lovely having bathrobes as well. The food in the lobby was ok but there were tones of places in the area to eat. Great location and good atmosphere. Would definitely return.
"Perfect Start To Backpacking Through Europe"
07/11/14 TheAMan88 Kent, Washington
I had just ended a guided tour in London & had set out on my own in January of this year & my first stop was Barcelona on my adventures. The first night I had arrived there i had, had a discrepancy with my room as I arrived a day earlier then expected. The staff was very understanding & took care of me without a problem, I loved the look of the hostel as well there happened to be a pub crawl night there that was put on from another group in the hostel & was invited out the same night, it was a great start to my stay. Throughout my stay everyone was very helpful in directing me to places to check out and explore throughout my travels there, I was able to meet a lot of great people & made some excellent memories & still keep in touch with some people I met at the hostel. Thanks for a great experience ;)
