Location was excellent and there was a very friendly atmosphere. Great security too.Bit noisy throughout the night, this is expected in a youth hostel, but the shouting went on until the early hours which was tiring after travelling a long distance. This was the fault of other guests rather than the hostel.

I liked the fact that the staff was very friendly and helpful. I mean always. I stayed there for 2 weeks and they did everything they could to make sure my stay was as comfortable as possible given the circumstances and the fact that it is in fact a hostel, not a 5-star hotel. The bar area is nice. Taxi and city tour services can be arranged through reception.There was much noise outside our door late evenings, between 11 and 12pm due to students that had to sign up on a list than hang on the dooropposite our. I told this to your staff after the first night butnothing happened.

Good for such a low price, beds are not very comfortable, but clean. The staff was very helpful. Hostel looks very secure: there is a cage in a room to loсk all valuables (you need to have your own locker, can buy in a travel shop) and staff is checking that allpeople coming in live in a hostel. Showing rooms and toilets are quite clean and big.The location is perfect for walking around historical part of London,direct road to Heathrow airport from Russell Square underground station (50-60 minutes),several bus stations near, few cafes, internet cafe in a corner.I stayed in room 237 on second floor and it was just above the bar with very loud music. Reception girl moved me into another room by my request, but it was the last available place in a hostel. The photos of room are better than they appear. Smell in a room was not very good.Wi-fi network signal is poor and available only in a small lobby and bar.Breakfast was not very good for it price, i preferred to go to near cafes.

The shower room and the toilet is big and clean. There is elevator inside the hostel and there is a luggage room that let you store the luggage inside . Also, there is a cage with lock provided for each person in the bed room.I found 1 toilet for the whole hallway for both male and female too few. Nice hostel for youngsters until 20 years old.

We had two rooms booked, two and three beds, there is no choice to get towels in the triple room, just buy new once from the travel office downstairs.They advertise ping pong table and Wii, but that is only in the bar and people under 18 are not admitted there, that is not nice.

Good for such a low price, beds are not very comfortable, but clean. The staff was very helpful. Hostel looks very secure: there is a cage in a room to loсk all valuables (you need to have your own locker, can buy in a travel shop) and staff is checking that allpeople coming in live in a hostel. Showing rooms and toilets are quite clean and big.The location is perfect for walking around historical part of London,direct road to Heathrow airport from Russell Square underground station (50-60 minutes),several bus stations near, few cafes, internet cafe in a corner.We shared a bathroom and the one in my floor was out of order, so that was really unconfortable. Then the wi fi connection was quite poor. The prices in the bar were a bit expensive for a hostel.

Nothing much actually.cold inside ( I was there at the end of September), there's nowhere really to sit down and read if you need to, it's always cold in the hall as the entrance door is always open and there are no other areas to sit. No chairs in the rooms, in the floor halls. Internet is slow or not working occasionally. 4-bed rooms are mixed rooms only so if you want to be in girls only room, be ready for at least 8 people in a room. Only two sockets in the room and no sockets in the bathroom (except for shaving). On the whole it's not bad but could have been more comfortable, especially in terms of sitting areas

clean, near to city centreI stayed in room 237 on second floor and it was just above the bar with very loud music. Reception girl moved me into another room by my request, but it was the last available place in a hostel. The photos of room are better than they appear. Smell in a room was not very good.Wi-fi network signal is poor and available only in a small lobby and bar.Breakfast was not very good for it price, i preferred to go to near cafes.

Great value for money, it was very clean & the bunk beds were really comfortable & the bedding smelt lovely, o would defiantly recommend this to anyonenot a hostel at all. It is a playground for young people. Very noisy. Downstairs pub played the loud music until very late. Young girls and boys running in the hall and talking, laughing. It seems like no wall at all. We couldn't fall asleep until 2am.

If you are young the Generator Hostel London is a great place to staywhen you are in London. This is the place where you can meet a lot ofpeople from all over the world. I had a lot fun there and met reallygood friends.The basic rooms, the blocked sink, the high noise levels from the disco until 3 in the morning, the distance between the rooms and the toilet/showers, the way the bedding slid off, the cramped room. My friend had to visit the floor above us just to go to the toilet as the male bathroom was out of service on our floor for the entire duration of our stay.

Location and Price. Good value forthis money.The staff are not very friendly (except for one or two). I booked a roomwith 4 bunks (8 beds) and I stayed in a room with 8 bunks (16 beds).Every night I had to return at reception because the key card would notopen the door. The wi-fi, available free to guests, was of poor qualityin the public areas (there is no free wi-fi signal in the bedrooms).Finally, the worst thing was being woken up at 06:00 by another guestwho had supposedly been placed in the same bed as me. It was a messduring the night and I had to change the bed (I was the first to arriveat the hostel and that bed was actually my bed). Considering all thathad happened, I won't stay in this hostel again and I do not recommendto anyone.
