Superkiva hieman hipsteri hostelli!

Aivan ihana hostelli, kaupunkiin hieman matkaa, mutta julkisilla tai uberilla pääsee helposti! Rauhallinen sijainti. Lämpimästi suosittelen nuorille, lapsiperheiden paikka ei kuitenkaan ole. Olimme kahden hengen huoneessa ja huone oli todella ihana ja siisti! Huoneessa oli myös oma siisti wc.

Sehr zufrieden

Wir waren in einem Vierbettzimmer untergebracht und hatten einen sehr angenehmen Aufenthalt. Am besten hat mir persönlich die Einrichtung gefallen: Schlicht aber modern und sehr praktisch. Nur ein Handtuchhalter im Badezimmer wäre schön gewesen.

In ruhiger Lage gleich beim Park, Tram zu Fuss erreichbar und somit innert ein paar Minuten im Stadtzentrum. Frühstück kann für € 7.50 dazugenommen werden. Handtücher sind keine im Zimmer, diese müssen gemietet werden.

Love Amsterdam

I was travelling alone and at first I was a bit afraid but directly after my arrival at the genarator hostel all my fear was gone. Everybody is really nice and they do their best to feel comfortable. I felt really home there. Everything is clean and modern I really can recommend it. Also amsterdam is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. I'll definitely come back as soon as possible. Thanks for everything.

Nice hotel in a decent location of Amsterdam

Pros: industry style furniture, location right next to the park
Cons: the breakfast buffet could be a little more "healty" with a much bigger variety.
Location: restaurants and bars are close by; the park is right in front of the door
The Generator Hotel is very nice located, about 20min walk outside of the center. It´s located within a nice park, where you can relax and enjoy your afternoon coffee. The people there are down to earth and help you whenever they can. The industry style of the hotel makes it very attractive to young and old.

Cooles Hotel in schönem Park

Pros: Die Uniatmosphäre und der lockere freundschaftliche Umgang.
Cons: Die Doppelbetten rutschen auseinender. Vielleicht eine Fixierung?
Location: Mit dem Tram fährt man ca. 10 min zum Alexanderplein. Dann 5 min. durch den Park spazieren. Der Spielplatz neben dem Hostel ist toll für die Kids.
Die vier Nächte im Generator Familienzimmer waren sehr angenehm. Das Personal ist aussergewöhnlich freundlich. Frühstücksoptionen an der Bar und der Cappuccino sind sehr gut. Kleine Reinigungsprobleme am Anfang wurden von der Managerin rasch, professionell und sympathisch gelöst. Wir sind mit dem Hostel rundum zufrieden.
