This Hostel Chain Is Where You Want To Stay On Your Next Eurotrip

In the past we’ve found some pretty neat hostels – there was that minimalist design dream in Croatia, this fun one in Nottingham, and a Spanish hostel that inexplicably received a glowing endorsement from 50 Cent – but none quite stack up against this European hotel brand.

Let me introduce you to Generator Hostels – the best hostel group on Earth.


In the past decade we’ve seen the birth of a new generation of hostels – those that offer comfort and cool at low prices, without skimping on luxury or design. Generator Hostels first emerged in London in 1995; that hostel is a shining example of what makes the genre so great – comfort, class, quirk and, most importantly, value. ‘Affordable luxury’ is a term that gets thrown around a lot these days, but with Generator, they’re right on the money. For a night in a dorm at Generator’s centrally located London hostel it’ll cost you only €22.50, or $39AUD.

Paris’ private room features a terrace, dreamy views and a hammock. A hammock.

Generator Hostels’ Paris branch opened last year in the city’s 10th arrondissement, and it’s a place we unashamedly called the greatest hostel on earth. Boasting 916 rooms over eight floors, a rooftop bar with views of Montmartre and Sacré Coeur, and a sleek art-deco feel, it joins a host of other winning Generator Hostels scattered across Europe. The roster currently includes hostels in Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, Dublin, Hamburg, London, Venice, Amsterdam and now, Stockholm.

Stockholm, in all its Scandinavian glory.

The innovative and design-led new space was debuted recently in Sweden’s capital of cool. Located in Torsgatan 10, right in the heart of Stockholm’s city centre, the newest Generator hostel boasts a unique bar and restaurant, a buzzing event space and decked-out rooms.


If that wasn’t enough, Generator are welcoming a new addition later in the year in Rome, which they promise to be a tapestry of Roman heritage spread out over seven floors. In true Roman style the hostel will have its own deli-style cafe and be located only a short walk from the Colosseum and Roma Termini station. Excellent.
