    A last minute overnight stay served its purpose at a very Central London location. Staff were very friendly & helpful.

    The plastic cover on the mattresses I know are on the beds for a reason but think the covers need to be washed down more frequently so you don’t wake up smelling like you slept in a gym locker even though you showered before bed.

    The front-desk staff are always friendly to solve guests' issues. The drinking/dining area with the big-screen TV on the ground floor are pleasant place. Washing machines with separate drying machines on the base floor are very convenient for guests to use.

    My mobile networks seem to be blocked inside the building all the time. In-room facilities can be improved significantly (eg. furniture).

    The hostel has a very good location. The daily scheduled tour plan is attracting to tourists. The hostel can accommodate more than 100 guests in full capacity by conservative estimates. It's a great chance to meet and get to know people of all walks and of all ages here in one place. The special music played at the bar hits one's nurves very hard by nature.

    In-room facilities need improvement.

About

Overview

Guests visiting London and searching for affordable accommodations within easy reach of all that greater London has to offer will find that the Generator London is a good choice. This is a hostel property that offers dormitory-style rooms with few frills. However, it is within easy reach of most of London’s top attractions, including the British Library, The Foundling Museum, The Postal Museum, the Charles Dickens Museum, Covent Gardens, Regent’s Park, and a great deal more.

The 210 rooms within Generator London offer dormitory-style sleeping arrangements, with eight beds per room. The rooms are climate controlled and include a safe for personal valuables. All rooms are also nonsmoking. Note that there are female-only dorms available. A limited number of private twin rooms are available, as well.

While the rooms might provide only basic amenities, the property itself offers quite a lot. For instance, there is a café on site. There is also a travel shop where guests can pick up sundries and such. Free Wi-Fi is provided throughout the property, and there is also a bar here where guests can grab a quick drink. The laundry area offers self-service cleaning, and there is event space on offer, too. Luggage storage and a chill-out area complete the picture.

While the hostel does offer a café on property, guests will also find there are over 150 restaurants within less than a half-mile’s walk. These include Aux Pains de Papy, and Albertini Restaurant for Italian fare. Cappadocia is an Italian café, while Pizza Sophia also serves up Italian fare. Other options include The Banc, Patisserie Deux Amis, and North Sea Fish Restaurant.
