What do you think when we say, “hostel”? Do the words “stylish”, “modern” and "comfortable" come to mind? If not, you need to change your preconceptions of a hostel, because Generator Barcelona will shatter them all. It lives up to its claim ‘you’ve never seen a hostel like this.’ Far from the basic decor and budget approach of many hostels, Generator have created a arty, retro hub that offers higher quality than you’d expect while keeping the price tag well within the realms of ‘reasonable.’ Yes, it is made up of shared dorms and yes the majority of it is aimed at communal living – so what makes this place different? The rooms whilst having a stylish edge, do offer much the same as everywhere else – a bed. It might seem simple but in the world of hostels private bathroom facilities are few and far between – so Generator providing a private shower, sink and toilet (all separate) to each room is a big plus point for those needing a bit more privacy. Each room offers its own temperature control which I found offered more comfort and is a nice little touch. The rooms on offer take in most of your individual and group needs with dorms (six or eight bed rooms) and private doubles, triples and quads. If all that sharing isn’t your bag, the building offers amazing hotel rooms that are on-a-par with any boutique hotel – with en-suite, balconies and exceptional views. Our own experience gave us views of the sea and the top of La Sagrada Familia.
