Very well kept, close to the train station, ample parking space, friendly staff (does speak English well enough), clean and cozy rooms. Yes, would recommend to all. Just one concern that is the internet connection that is lousy and couldn't connect at all during my stay, so don't expect it while you are there. Peace :)
The hostel is really close to the main train station and easy-to-find. I got a 6-bed dorm. The room was clean, the beds have individual reading light which won't disturb your roommates, standard electricity plug and 2 USB connectors so I could charge my phone and camera battery at the same time (I could not do that in any other hostels I've been so far!). If you bring your own padlock, you can put your things into a drawer under the bed and have it locked. You get a magnetic keycard for entering the hostel, the rooms and even to the section where the rooms are located. I've only met keycards once, in France a few years ago. Those never opened the door and sucked. This one, at Generator just works fine with no problem. You can get a breakfast for €5.50 per day, which is not the cheapest thing in life, but the food is great and you can have it between 7:00-11:00 AM. Their late-night bar is also a nice place for a chat with friends. The hostel staff usually ignores people entering in/out on the main door. At first it was strange, but it's probably because there are so many guests passing by during the day. However, as soon as you ask them, they are helpful, so I'm satisfied. It was a great hostel, would choose it again.
I didn´t stayed for a long time but the place was quite perfect! It was so clean, with bathroom for each dormitory. The location is fine, easy to find. I rent a bike at the hostel: a bit expensive (10€) but a good way to visit Hamburg I think! I recommand it +++ !
We had booked a room with shower but on arrival we were told that this room was no longer available because of a plumbing problem. We took a slightly cheaper room with shared shower and toilet, and this was fine even though the hotel was quite full. The room was quite warm and we could not keep the window open at night because there was too much street noise. Overall though, this was a good location and pleasant stay.
We arrived at 1am and not only was reception still open we were able to order pizzas and beers, a great way to start the holiday! The breakfast each morning was great although at 9.50EUROS a little pricey. This is a little too far out of the centre to walk but the bus and underground service is great with stops near by so not an issue. The rooms were clean and perfectly fine for a weekend away.
