This hostel is right beside Hamburg Hauptbahnhof and it will take you 20 minutes to walk to the Rathausmarkt and the beautiful lake. Generator Hostel provides you a great bar, artistic deco, private rooms and efficient wi-fi. You gotta be careful at night tho, there's gonna be a lot of drunk people around that corner ;)

This isn't a hotel. It's a nice hostel. The staff are polite. It has private rooms and dorm rooms and a nice bar area. The twin room we had was clean and comfortable. The windows blocked out all external noise. Which you need as it is super central. Literally yards from the main train station (Hauptbhanhof). Easy to hop on...

The hostel is just located next by the Hamburg Hauptbahnhof and the interior design is modern and friendly. Wifi, security lift and lobby door to separate residents and guests, friendly restaurant and lobby setting. We chose the 2-people private room and it included a small plastic toilet and bathroom. Super love this setting because not all the generator hostels provide...

Hi, Thanks for the detailed feedback. We know about the area we are in. Therefore we have decided to have, other than the other hotels/hostels in the area, to have our own security team. Also we keep the door shut all day and only with the keycard or by ringing the bell, you will get access to the hostel. If...

Double rooms with private bathroom are absolutely ok, clean, a bit small but there is everything you need. The position of the hostel is excellent, very close to the Altstadt and the main train station. Only problem: you cannot bring anything to eat or drink in your room.

If you are looking for one of those small cozy hostels where everyone know each other, this is not it. However, their facilities are great and everything is super clean and modern. Especially if you are traveling with a group, this is a great place.

I'll be honest, my experience in hostels is limited, but I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel. The rooms were clean and it seemed like it had a thriving bar section where it'd be really easy to meet fellow travelers. Beyond that, it's literally right outside the train station so it was really easy to find. I would definitely...
