Generator Madrid, Madrid, Spain
Good instead of waiting
I've need to wait 4 hours in order to change my room, cause I added one night on booking.

The location of this hostel was fantastic - steps from a metro stop on the Gran Via and walking distance from the Royal Palace. Not as social as a smaller hostel would be - but the staff were great and the room was perfect.

Better than budget hotel
Private room is as good as any cheap hotel but much cleaner and better style.

Factor in Storage Budget
If you need to store your luggage either before or after checking in or out, remember that in Generator Madrid, you have to pay as you store them in a locker (small one is €2/hour and €7/day). I have backpacked all over the world for years and understand that free storage is not always found in hostels and that it is a source of income for the hostels. But I have also stayed at different Generators in different cities and they had free storage. Of course, each Generator is operated differently and it is unlikely that this will change for Generator Madrid but this share is simply to remind other people traveling to this one that they would need to expect to pay for storage here.

Hotel like quality and comfort
Generator is a nice hostel. Hotel quality almost. The bed was pretty comfortable and pillow and comforter. It was nice to have a separate shower and bathroom in the room. It got pretty hot and stuffy in the room at times. The breakfast was pretty good but you have to get there early to get more of a variety. Also it was kind of annoying having to wait in line at the reception desk to purchase a token. The reception seemed short staffed. I stayed at a Generator in Rome and it was much more efficient to have someone in the breakfast area to purchase it from. I think you have to request information about their services or a tour of the hostel to get information. I didn’t so nothing was explained to me. I think they could do a better job of marketing their services and events. The hostel hostel is in a great location within walking distance to the center and many sites. Metro is very close too. The staff overall was very friendly and helpful. I think they need to communicate with each other more though. It’s a new location so I think a lot of them might be new. I ate at the restaurant once. It was nice to have that option. They didn’t seem to have any daily specials or activities like the one in Rome. I was expecting more Spanish cuisine.
