If you’re coming from the airport, take a train to Centraal Station and then get on Tram 9 going towards Diemen (Sniep) and stop at Alexanderplein. From there it's a 5-minute walk to the hostel.

Generator Amsterdam

Ride your bicycle along café-lined waterways, visit the most creative shops around De PijP or just kick back by the canal and try a few cold Dutch beers. It’s pretty hard to get stressed in Amsterdam, but having a good time is easy.

Generator Amsterdam is located in the up-and-coming eastern side of the city overlooking Oosterpark. This former zoological university building can accommodate 564 guests in 168 twin and quadruple rooms with incredible views on the surrounding and en-suite bathrooms. There is also one luxury apartment for six people with views of the park and a self-catered kitchen. It has flexible and spacious social areas, filled with creative design touches like glass-fronted elevators, a raised café and an outdoor terrace. We’ve turned the former lecture hall into an impressive chill-out lounge and bar, while the old library is now a relaxation and private events room. The basement and café are now dining destinations and the original boiler room has become a secret late night bar.

Nescio - Auditorium bar

About

This is a bar with a difference. This multi-level, former lecture hall has been converted into an auditorium with tiered seating and a mezzanine chill-out space looking down on the bar which is made out of the original lecture desk. The classroom style seating has been cleverly repurposed to give the bar a comfortable lounge style but with a dynamic social feel. The original windows flood the room with natural light to make this the perfect spot for working or just hanging out. As the sun goes down the velvet curtains are drawn, the lights are dimmed and the place turns into a late night bar.

Library

About

Connected to the Auditorium bar by a raised walkway, The Library is a hidden sanctuary of calm. Maintaining the original library features and the space has been modernised through bold colours and imagery. The selves are stacked with orange booked and pay homage to Holland’s cultural colour. It’s the ideal space to read, relax and unwind yet lends itself well to become a unique setting for screenings and private events.
