In a former East German office building in the Prenzlauer Berg neighborhood, Berlin’s second Generator Hostel shows off the brand’s signature hip, urban style in a handsome mix of exposed brick, original artwork and indoor/outdoor communal spaces. There are guestrooms for every budget, from private triple and twin rooms to shared rooms with 14, eight and six bunk beds as well as women-only shares. All come with soft duvets and pillows, full-length mirrors, power sockets and storage lockers; private rooms include fluffy towels, desks and bedside lamps. Hip public spaces foster a community spirit, from the bar that’s open until 2 am throughout the week, to the lounge and games room that’s kitted out with funky design-forward furniture and pool and foosball tables. A light continental breakfast is available from 7 to 11 am each morning, and hot dinners (sausages, burgers, nachos, fries) are available from 6 to 10 pm. Music lovers should time their stay with one of the hostel’s frequent live music nights, or ask one of the young, plugged-in staff for local recommendations.
In the Area
Head south to the artsy neighborhood of Kreuzberg. Pop into Markthalle Neun to load up on snacks from organic bakeries, delis and teahouses. Continuing from Alexanderplatz, Alte Schönhauser Strasse is home to eclectic design stores and kitsch retailers, and along Oranienstrasse you’ll find storefront eateries like the historic Max und Moritz, which serves tasty authentic German dishes. Try an Asian-fusion burger at Shiso Burger or, for Michelin-starred eats, book a table at Tim Raue‘s eponymous restaurant on Rudi Dutschke Strasse.
How to Get There
Very Good, It was my second time in this hostel and i is very good service and accommodation for short trips to Dublin the best things is the attention in the Reception, the guys they are amazing, very nice job. They have helped me with all things that I could need in my stay.
Had a nice stay. Everything went well. The room was and toilets were clean. Location is easily accesible using tram. Not that far from city center. Supermarkets availbe nearby. Had no issue in checking in and checking out.
After 1 long Day enough visiting back to room on Nov. 5, bed messed up, locker broken... I went to the reception for help, while here came such indifferent replies:
“Not my responsibility “
“Neither other colleagues, Nor manager’s Number “
“Stand here waiting, or go back to the room... ＂
Speechless, helpless, tiresome, I was so chocked with such terrible experiences and I never forgot the guy’s innocent face without any expressions...
