Any comments? Tweet us @Gen_Restyle. And don’t forget, rule number 1 is HAVE FUN!
This is where it all started, in these four walls Generator was born. As the first of eight uber European hostels, I’ve come a long way since then and I’m now regarded as the best hostel here in London town. And the best of the best is about to get even better with a super stylin’ face-lift. Think outlandish interiors, the like of which have never been seen in a hostel before. So forget what you know about hostels in London, I’m changing the game. I am Generator London, and I am much, much, much more than a hostel.
Wi-Fi on the Fly
Imagine, its free when using your own device. And it’s on offer throughout the social areas in the hostel in London. Internet terminals are also available for a small charge. Who says there’s no surfing in the city?
The Generator Bar in London
Whatever your tipple when in London they don’t come any better than when served by me and there’s also a hostel happy hour. See you at the Generator bar from 6pm till late everyday. Although, everyday is probably a bit much.
The adventure starts here, even when your lounging around the hostel in London. Open all day, everyday. Make new friends; meet old friends … pretty much do what you like…. It’s a lounge people.
Breakfasts. 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 at the café from 7am to 11am. Add some extra rise and shine to your day at the hostel in London.
Dinner is served. See you between 6pm and 9.30pm 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.
So you’ve gone nocturnal, partied all night and now have the midnight munchies. Well fear not there’s a host of vending machines in the hostel in London to serve everything you could ever want at 3am (Also munchable at all other times).
The New Generation of Rooms and Beds in London
Power Shower Rooms
Private showers with unbelievable powers are available on every floor in the hostel in London, so there’s no excuse for not blowing away the cobwebs the morning after the night before.
Re-Generate 24 Hour Laundry
Looking sharp is what you’re all about, especially in the fashion capital London. It’s a 24/7 business. Good job that the laundry room is open for you to wash, dry and iron yourself into a suitably fashionable state 24/7 too then.
24 Hour Reception in London
Help is at hand with the 24-hour reception in the London 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 secrets of the city.
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, especially in London. From planning your way around the city with a 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.

Generator Guide To Gay Pride Across Europe
June is traditionally a month to celebrate LGBT Pride in many European countries and we know how you all love a good festival. So wherever you are this month we can help you get the pick of Pride. Christopher Street Day Celebrations Germany In Germany the Pride festival is usually called Christopher Street Day. This is a reference to the famous Stonewall Riots in New York which saw an uprising of LGBT people against police on 28th June 1969. Berlin is said to be the leading gay city in Europe with events and festivals all year round. June is the highlight with the Lesbisch-schwules Stadtfest Berlin, Berlin Pride/Christopher Street Day and the alternative Kreuzberg Pride. Hamburg also celebrates CSD with all the attending festivities and fun. This year it is slightly later at the end of July with the all important parade on 3rd August. Gay is Good - UK The UK is another country that encourages equal rights and the voices of LGBT people, we love this. The biggest festival of the year is, of course, in London although other cities like Liverpool and Manchester have them as well. This year’s theme is “Love (and Marriage)” which is currently being hotly debated in the UK Government. If you are in London around the end of June then Trafalgar Square is the place to be as this is where the parade ends and there will be a huge party atmosphere here with music dancing and outrageous costumes. Dublin has its own celebrations in June with the parade, which starts at the Garden of Remembrance, on Saturday 29th June. Pre-events which will contribute funds to Dublin Pride include Glitterbomb, an outrageous Friday night out at Georges Pub, a well known gay haunt in Dublin. Also Pride Unplugged at Pantibar, which is a talent night once a month. Get the chance to see them before they become famous! Copenhagen Pride August is pride month in Copenhagen and the festival is a week of parties, talks and fun. The big parade is on 24th August and will make its way through the city from Frederiksberg Town Square to Vestergade in the centre of the city. The focus for Pride Week is the Pride Square which will be in the Radhaus square right in the heart of Copenhagen. Get your rainbow trousers on and get involved. Pride Barcelona Big, flamboyant and fun is what you would expect from Pride and that is what you get in Barcelona. Spain is a country known for tolerance and support of LGBT issues and so you can expect some huge celebrations here at the end of June. Head down to the Avenida Maria Cristina for the main festival and the end of the parade, but many clubs and bars will be having rainbow themed parties for the whole 10 day festival so you won’t miss out. Particular events to note include Pride BCN Drag Race, the Pride equivalent of a beauty contest, and the Heel Race, where runners use the most gorgeous and improbably high heels to run in instead of trainers.read more
