Generator London

London is a dizzying mix of world-class culture, fashion, food and frolics. It’s a city where two thousand years of history can stand side-by-side with shimmering new skyscrapers. Whoever you are, whatever you’re looking for, chances are you’ll find it here.

Generator London is a short stroll from Covent Garden, Regents Park and the British Museum. When crafting this hostel we redesigned this old police station to reflect the city’s street life. Local reclaimed timber, exposed brickwork and hot-rolled black steel give the hostel an industrial feel. Bold graphics, vibrant patterns and famous British cultural icons combine to capture London's cosmopolitan vibe. Make sure you catch the classic red bus that’s parked next to our bar’s dance floor every night. Don’t be late, London’s calling.
