cozy, clean and quietPosted Sep 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
On the positive side, the hotel staff were great, the facilities all clean, and the yard and restaurant quite comfortable. This hostal actually is quite conveniently located, though it won't seem so when you arrive, since it faces the industrial part of Moabit and is a bit of a schlep from the main tourist attractions. That said, it is maybe 3 min by foot to a U/S-Bahn station that connects to everywhere (look hard to the SE from Westhafen station and you can see it quite close by), a short bike ride to the Tiergarten Park, an easy ride to either the town center or to Zoologischer Garten/Charlottenburg and only a 15 min bus ride to/from Tegel, less by taxi. I'd say it is less than 30 min door to door to pretty much anywhere you would go as a tourist, including walking and waiting for the train. On the downside, there were two plugs to a bed (as promised) in my room but they were not conveniently placed. Who wants to charge their phone or computer next to some stranger's pack across the room?! They should work out some system to allow every bed to have a plug at the bed! Also, my bed did not have close enough supports under the padding--i.e. you could feel the boards a bit--I was ok with it but many would not be. Everything else was ok. It's not as hip and stylish as some other hostels, but I recommend it if you want cozy, clean and quiet. More b&b style than hostal, I'd say.

Overall enjoyable stayPosted Jul 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
We were looking for a cheap hotel for just one night, with our flights departing early the next day from Tegel Airport. In this regard, the location of the hotel is excellent (total journey is around 20 minutes, depending on correspondances) We have been pleasantly surprised by the state and amenities of the room and toilets, specially considering the price. The only regret is the breakfeast; slightly overfocusing on savoury dishes (we are sweet teeth, but we could find our content anyway)

Great hostel, Great price, Enjoyable stay.Posted Apr 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
The Generator Hostel is one of the better hostels I've stayed in Europe. It is relatively new, the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the staff is really nice and very helpful. I've stayed there twice in the last 6 months, each for about 5 days. Both times I had a room with six beds. Here are a few pros and cons: Cons: I had issues with the wifi. I had no problem connecting, but the download speed frequently dropped to zero and I had to try several times to reload whatever page I was viewing. The lids on the roll-out lockers did not stay open by themselves, which was a little annoying. The breakfast is basic (cereal, toast, juice, coffee.) I’ve had better at other hostels, and for a euro or two more, you can get a better breakfast elsewhere. Pro/Con: The location is about a fifteen minute walk from central Dublin. A little far, but it also means the hostel is really quiet, and it is not directly near a major road. There’s not a lot in the few blocks near the hostel, but everything you need isn’t more than a 10/15 min walk. Pros: Each room has a bathroom (toilet, sink, and shower). Each bunk has two electrical outlets and a light. The beds are pretty comfortable, and everything is really clean. There is a bar on the ground floor, places to use your laptop with electrical outlets. The staff is really helpful and friendly. For the price of a single night in a hotel you can stay at Generator for nearly a week. I would definitely stay again.
