Where it's all happening
It’s a tale of two Hostels in Berlin. You’ll find my little sister in Mitte, but why not stay at my pad instead, Central-East side is where I reside with over 890 beds for you to enjoy. The more the merrier I say. I’ve got space for all of you, so groups and gatherings you need to come and stay. I’ll put on a show with the most excellent of entertainment happening on a daily basis including Sky Sports. banging beats to poetic ponderings, I’ve heard it all, after all I am Generator Berlin and I am much, much, much more than a Hostel. Even if I do say so myself.
Wi-Fi on the Fly in Berlin
It’s free and fast when your using your own device. It’s on offer throughout the hostel ground floor. Internet terminals are also available for a small charge. Catch a wave of Wi-Fi on the East side of Berlin.
Generator Bar in Berlin
Beers in Berlin don’t come any better than mine and there’s also a hostel happy hour. See you at Generator bar from 5pm-2am everyday. Who says you can have too much of a good thing?
The adventure starts here at the Hostel in Berlin, even when your lounging around. Open all day, everyday. Make new friends; meet old friends… pretty much do what you like…. It’s a lounge people.
Breakfasts in Berlin. Go all continental.
The most important meal of the day, the Generator way. When going continental, eat continental. For a small charge, try the breakfast from 7am to 11am. Wakey, wakey. Add some extra rise and shine to your day in the hostel in Berlin.
Being a night owl, you’ve partied the night away and now have the midnight munchies. Well fear not there’s a host of vending machines in the Berlin Hostel to serve everything you could ever want at 3am (Also munchable at all other times).
I’ve had more adventures than you’ve had hot dinners. So why not have one more at the restaurant? See you between 6pm and 10pm every evening for what has been described the finest dining experience of any hostel in the world probably. We also cater for large groups so get your order in now.
Generator is all about the group mentality. Meeting spaces in the lounge ( we even have a designated teacher lounge), private rooms for group leaders if needed and of course the all-important express check in and check out. Group travel is a whole lot easier, if we do it together in the hostel in Berlin.
The New Generation of Rooms and Beds in Berlin
Power Shower Rooms in Berlin
Private showers with unbelievable powers are available on every floor in the hostel in Berlin. Clean and simple. No messing around here.
Re-Generate 24 Hour Laundry
Looking sharp is what you’re all about. It’s a 24/7 business. Good job that the laundry room is open for you to wash, dry and iron your threads into a perfectly presentable procedure 24/7 too then.
24 Hour Reception
Help is at hand with the 24-hour reception at the Berlin Hostel. There’s always a very helpful person around to let you in, keep you safe, offer directions or best of all tell you the history of the Brandenburg Gate.
You can park your bus in it. Literally. Completely free of charge. There’s even space to offload groups and luggage right at the front of Generator hostel in Berlin East. How convenient.
Generator goes Outer Space
Enjoy all that Generator has to offer on the inside, outside. Cook up a storm with a BBQ in the Berlin hostel beer garden. Now all that is needed is the sun.
Safe and sound. That’s the best place for your luggage. So we lock it up in a little room (it’s actually bigger than you’d think), where only you can get access to it.
The world is your oyster. From planning your way around the city with a Berlin walking tour to the next step on your world tour, there’s a lot of help at hand in this little gem of the Generator. You even can test your pedal power and rent a bike at the travel shop!

Live Sky Sports at Generator Berlin East
What makes a perfect hostel? Great location…tick. Fearsome events…tick. Comfort…tick. Security…tick. Sky Sports…NOW YOU’RE TALKING! We’ve just installed Sky Sports on the big screen in our Berlin East hostel. So you can sit back, relax, chill with your mates and watch your favourite F1 driver take the podium, tennis player smash an ace, or football team bring the trophy home. Where were you when Manchester City one of the most exciting Premier Leagues of all time? Or when Borussia Dortmund made history by winning their first domestic double in club history? People remember these moments, even when they’re bad memories, and we want you guys to share these experiences with each other. Maybe it’s a Sky Sports News presenter that you love watching or an F1 grand prix that you will not miss, the big events WILL be included. You can now wake up after a long night, munch down a tasty brekkie and slouch in your pjs on our comfy sofas in front of the TV to watch your favourite sports channel…we know everyone needs those lazy days whilst travelling, especially when you are in the capital of culture, Berlin. Kick off the night with a few drinks whilst watching the football, don’t fret, it will be shown; whatever the scenario, we’ve got you covered. Picture this, the sun is shining, the drinks are flowing and the biggest game of the season is on the big screen. What better way to watch it than with like-minded people enjoying the Generator experience? Ahhhhh living the perfect life. “What have you got for me?”, we hear you ask. Well, check out our Sky Sports calendar in our Berlin East hostel events to see what we’re showing. If there’s a sport event on and it’s not included in our schedule, just let our Berlin bar team know and they will bend over backwards to get in on for you.read more
€1 - What costs the world?
Or how far does one Euro take you .... The gasping void in your purse, who does not know that feeling of dwindling funds? The month-end is still far away and payday is not yet in sight. An uneasy feeling slowly rises out of the stomach, sweat appears on your forehead, if you look in your wallet. Yesterday there was the 10 euro bill and now one only copper coin. Money is running out and it becomes invisible in your wallet. Most of the times you don’t remember, where you have spent it. In Germany, since 2002 the Euro replaced the good old Deutsche Mark and the older generations still revert back to it. "€ 1 which is 2 DM", it sounds in many ears. But has the value decreased or has it been just adjusted? The minds are split. One Euro is 100 cents, 10 small gold coins. What can you buy for that? Especially in 2013? In the 40’s you got twelve pints of beer for one Euro, that is a whopping 6 litres. In the 70’s you could purchase a total of 48 eggs for one Euro and in the 80's you even got a litre of petrol for a goldling. Today petrol prices almost doubled and if you're lucky, you get 0.5 litres for the price of one euro. In Britain you get just two packets of crisps and 1.5 cans of mean beanz for € 1. Looking at the Euro as international purchasing power you can buy can buy 3 pints of beer in Panama for 100 cents. In Costa Rica, for the same amount of dough you get 1 fresh, juicy pineapple. In India, you can even buy 6 Kit Kats for € 1. This is three times as many as in Germany ... So, ”take a break” in India! But if you want to let your hair down and get a complete make over, head down to the Philippines. There you get the real deal and value for money. €1 and you get a new haircut. Back in Germany the reality will hit you. In Berlin a one way ticket with the BVV in the AB zone costs € 2.40 and Berlin is already cheap as chips compared to the cost of public transport in London or Copenhagen. Zone 1 to 2 diminishes your dosh by £ 2.80 (€ 3.20) in London and DKK 24 (€3.21) in Copenhagen. So much to low cost travelling.... Just imagine, on 21st March Generator is organizing a massive 24-hour huge bed sale. For 24 hours (these are 1440 minutes) you can buy a bed for € 1 at Generator Berlin East for the rest of the year. These are 285 days until the end of the year, every day a chance to stay in Berlin for 1 €. Madness .... so, what are you waiting for? Brace your credit card (you just need it to make an online reservation), decide when you want to go to Berlin (in April for the Marathon, in May for the Summer Rave in Tempelhof, CSD in June or many other top events) and then go and book your bed!read more
