Generator Hostel London

I stayed at the Generator for a total for 5nights and I must say as far as hostels go this is the best you will find!
The location is not the best, somewhere in the back streets of Kings Cross, but you are only a 10minute walk from the Tube and St Pancras International.

About Generator Hostel London

Generator London was the very first Generator and you'll find it in the area of Russell Square in the heart of the West End.

It's the ideal spot to enjoy London from, everything you need to see is minutes away by tube. You'll never run out of things to do in the UK's capital. You just have to decide where to start and we can help you with that. When you have seen and done it all for the day head back to Generator and unwind.

It's a destination in its own right and a great place to socialise and reflect on your experiences of the day. Head to the bar and chill out areas to get yourself a well deserved drink or two. It's lively, friendly and un-missable. We've also got great beds for sleepy heads and of course you'll be enjoying London life in the most authentic surroundings.

Choose from a great selection of rooms, from Dorms, to Quads, to Private rooms with innovative mod cons. Fast and free Wi-Fi is all yours too. To get the most out of your stay visit the travel shop and our city experts will help you devise an itinerary that will take you to all the hidden treasures this dynamic city has to offer. You'll have to stay longer to fit it all in but you'll not need convincing of that. We'll see you there soon.

I stayed at the Generator for a total for 5nights and I must say as far as hostels go this is the best you will find!
The location is not the best, somewhere in the back streets of Kings Cross, but you are only a 10minute walk from the Tube and St Pancras International.
If you are a young lady traveling by yourself in London, this is the place to be. Although it is a little more pricey for the girls dorm I would say go for it! Well lit mirrors and a makeup table, plenty of plugs for hair dryers and straighters and pretty pink walls!
There is also lock up cages for every bed and the showers a relatively clean and the water is HOT!
£5 for dinner and a drink and free cereal and toast in the mornings. (Although there is no Vegemite)
I met some really lovely girls in my dorm and never had a problem with noise.
The staff are friendly enough and you do get a free key chain to keep:)
Over all a real winner of a Hostel!!!!
