No thanks, not again.
My 16th Generator visit, great brand recognition and marketing but increasingly worse experiences. Stayed at this branch 2x over a one week period and unfortunately it was just one terrible experience after the other. Will keep the review concise and summarize due to space. Called ahead and asked about luggage storage options, was told a price and time limit that was incorrect. Had lunch, the 20 minute croquet monsieur was expensive and dry as a brick. Beds are super short, I’m not overly tall but covered the full length of the bed. Needed change to use machine in the hostel and their change machine was broken, was scuffed at and asked to use the supermarket across the street. Had breakfast, the pricing was inconsistent and the cashier girl was flirting with customers charging them based on how much she seemingly liked them. My room was tiny, I could not even open a suitcase between beds so I went into the hallway to finish packing my bag before leaving, fully dressed, not putting anything outside my bag. A manager and security guard quickly appeared, without asking started yelling at me. I was told to immediately go into the bathroom because I was embarrassing the hotel. Tried to argue my case but wasn’t even allowed to utter a full sentence, they told me that I wasn’t allowed to open my luggage in public places and that if I didn’t leave immediately I would be thrown out. Thanks, no more.
