Hello Everyone!

I will be staying at the Generator Hostel in London when I first arrive there in February. Just wondering if anyone else has stayed there and what your opinions of it are! I also have a question for all the other backpackers out there...... Should I bring a sleeping bag? or will it be a waste of space if most hostels provide linnen anyway??

Anyone else going to London in Feb??? We should all meet up for drinks! :-)

any help will be appreciated!

I stayed in the Generator twice and it was quite nice. It's very big and there are loads of people there, a good place to meet other backpackers.

I'm going there for NYE, so I'll come back after that if I can recall how it was.

I didnt like it much. Too big and too institutional. the bar / club is crap and everyone just hangs out there and gets pissed like a big frat party. but hey - i hav been in much worse. it is clean and tidy and friendly.

and I dont think there was a kitchen? could be wrong. But that is a big issue for me.

Most hostels provide linen - sometimes for free - sometimes not.
