Overview

Hip hostel-hotel hybrid in Berlin’s Prenzlauer Berg ‘hood, with shared and private rooms, an outdoor lounge and a games room

The Lowdown

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.

Great Hostel

Everything is great in this hostel. It’s clean it’s taken care, quick service etc. The only problem I noticed is taps in the bathroom, you can’t wash your hands freely, you got to touch sink all the time

Huge hostel and lots of infraestructure.

Huge, very professional and organized, this hostel is nearby sbahn, markets, Parks and restaurants. Clean, comfortable, safe.

Could improve on plugs and private lights and offer better lockers on the shared rooms.

The paid breakfast is satisfatory and the sheets are warm and clean.

A place of passage, the best is the city !!

The Hostel is very well located, has many services at your disposal but the elevator did not work. Your experience may improve or worsen depending on the people with whom you share a room, in my case they were very noisy and did not let me rest.
