Hidden in plain sight; immerse yourself in the urban-chic interiors of our London property that carefully blurs the lines between the city’s industrial past and the modern energy it’s known and loved for today. Catch a glimpse of local history through the use of reclaimed timbers, exposed brick walls and hot-rolled black steel. Feast your eyes on art installations and bespoke graphics as you make your way through the hostel. Generator London is all but a 5 minute walk from Russell Square tube station. It’s very much a social space with an exciting programme of events and local label nights. We’ve got a newly refurbished cinema, café and bar area with a bus 95 (heading towards Bloomsbury) to boot! Experience affordable luxury in our shared rooms and private twins, book your room now.
