The winter weather is in full swing so what better time to plan a spring city break to look forward to?  It may be too early to pick out which Ray Bans to wear in the UK, but Generator, Europe’s fastest growing hostel brand, is excited to announce the launch of its newest design-inspired boutique property in one of Europe’s most architecturally astounding cities; Barcelona. 

Generator BarcelonaWith boutique hostels already in Berlin East, Copenhagen, Dublin, Hamburg, London and Venice and more on the way this summer in Berlin Mitte, Generator is offering a new level of style and comfort for those who want big city centre adventure without breaking the bank. For the ultimate way to take in the city, rooms on the upper floors include private terraces offering astounding views of the city skyline (including the Sagrada Familia) and across to the Mediterranean.
