Generator Hostel has the benefit of being near an array of London attractions. The British Museum is close if you fancy a exploring the vast collection of artefacts from around the world. The British Library is also nearby and is home to the famous Magna Carta. Charles Dickens’ House is less than five minutes away and Covent Garden, with its variety of shops and restaurants, is close by.
The best way to get to Generator Hostel is to take a tube to Euston Station, which is a 5-10 minute walk away. Euston is on the Northern and Victoria lines of the London Underground.
Generator Hostel is only a 4 minute walk from Russell Square Tube Station (Piccadilly line) and only 6 minutes from London Euston Tube Station (Northern, Victoria, London Overground and London Midland lines).
Exit Euston Station and turn left onto Euston Road. Walk down this road until you get to Mabledon Place, where you’ll see a travel agent on the corner. Turn right here and continue straight on through Cartwright Gardens and on to Marchmont Street. When you come to the Snappy Snaps photo shop, turn left onto Tavistock Place. You will soon see Generator Hostel on the left – there is a sign in the window.
Great customer service at Generator Hostel and perfect arrangements for everything

Generator Hostel is a great place to stay and friendly helpful staff
Pia, German (03 May 16)
I arrived after midnight, because my flight was delayed, so I deeply appreciated the 24/7 reception. All people were very friendly, what made me feel comfortable. My room was really nice and as I was only travelling with handbaggage, I had enough space to put everything into the locker! What I did not like much were the showers. They were either too cold or too hot, so I could not really enjoy my shower. In addition I got a dirty towel at the shop, so I wasn't that happy about that either. But apart from that I really liked the place. I could reach everything by foot and in the evening I was always pleased to use the "Chilling" area, or just having a seat downstairs near the bar.

Generator Hostel felt very safe and clean. I wish that private rooms came with towels

Great staff, rooms and food at Generator Hostel. However, prices of towels are ridiculous and didn't appreciate the alarm which went of x3 times during the middle of the night
