If you're coming by plane, take the S1 S-Bahn line from the airport. It’ll cost €3.10 and it’ll take 25 minutes. Get off at Hauptbahnhof station. It’s a short walk from there to the hostel.

If you're travelling by taxi from the airport, it’ll cost you around €30 and it’s a 20-minute drive to Generator Hamburg.

If you’re coming from Hauptbahnhof station, use the Kirchenallee exit and look out for the tall brick building. You can not miss it!

Generator Hamburg

Germany’s second largest city has all the ingredients you need for a good time: down-to-earth locals, great bars, a 24-hour buzz, live music, art, culture, architecture and the world-famous port and waterfront.

Generator Hamburg is located in the heart of the city, opposite Hauptbahnhof station. John, Paul, George and Ringo once recorded here before they hit the big time. Now it's a hostel, a bar, a morning café, an art house and a favourite neighbourhood hangout. With work by local artist Till Keifer and design touches such as exposed brick walls and floor-to-ceiling windows, you'll feel right at home in this smart and cosy hostel.
