Poor 2.0
A joke. Shouldn't have the Generator name.
After staying at Generator in Paris, I was severely disappointed by this dump. I booked a 4 bed dorm, and when I checked in dirty towels and sheets were still on my bunk (Bed 1, Room 533). Furthermore the hotels.com description stated shower in room, unlike Paris,there was only a barely operating sink. Showers themselves were disgusting, with actual trash in two of the showers one day. (Plastic bags in one and a plastic water bottle in another.) Staff clearly didn't care and told me to leave if I wasn't happy. On a positive, the cafe area was spotless and the coffee decent. Don't stay here.

Poor 2.0
Won't Go Back
Cons: You pay for the hostel chain name only. My room slept 8 people but only had 2 power outlets. It was a constant battle for them. Lack of toilets on the ground floor main lobby and sleeping area. Have to go down to ground floor if you need to use a stall. Lack of security at the night time door. Place turns into a night club after 10pm to 3am. Pro: It is located 10-15min walk to Kings Cross Station and a few other underground stops. Cheap local deli is just down the street. No issues with WiFi.

Exceptional 10.0
The right hostel for everyone.
Very thing was amazing and practical. The bar and club in the hostel has the greatest events and drinks. It's a fun social place to meet new like-minded travelers and learn from them.

Expensive, no free luggage storage
Fine hostel except they charge alot for luggage storage. Almost no hot water the first day, and limited showers for a giant place.
