Stayed here last week with 3 mates in a private room. Got to the hotel early and were offered a bag drop which was great. Room was fine, everything clean and tidy and good value for money. Location was pretty good as near a lot of sites and landmarks, note it is a good walk to the beach. Were told on the second day from a guy on reception when stopping us whilst on way to our room that we had to wear the room band when entering the hostel (not had to do that in any other hostel or even on the first day?) but fine no problem. Overall, good value for money.

Known for transforming spaces, Generator Madrid is no different. This former parking lot & gas station has been brilliantly converted into a bar-cafe, restaurant, a spacious rooftop bar with jacuzzis and an atrium. Additional to the chill-out spaces for both guests and locals to explore, Generator Madrid’s facilities include a 24-hour reception, basement parking, private lockers and free Wi-Fi. -- Please note that due to the global pandemic, some venues, amenities, and services may have been eliminated or scaled down for the safety of our guests and staff. Please contact the hotel should you have any questions or concerns.
Basically okay. The rooftop saved the experience. That was supercool. Bud improve the staff with language and add more furnitures to the rooms. But the staff was really friendly and flexible. Main values are location and rooftop.

The location was ace and although Madrid is massive it's close-ish to the places I wanted to visit. The hostel is self is very popular and it's clear to see why, it's clean , Lots of community rooms, rooftop bar which wasn't open when I needed a cold bevy . Reasonable space under bed to put luggage. They also offer tours and bike rides Don't get tricked on Hostelworld or Agoda saying there is a spa, don't think that it's free as it isn't its 10 euros for a hour and you have to pre book. The room it's self was smart enough and I went in with 7 other clampetts. You do get your own privacy as you have your own curtain you draw across which is good because at night your left sweating like a lizard so have to resort in going commando . I saw that there was air conditioning but it didn't feel as if it was on so you wake up with a sun tan and dry mouth. The perfect way to get over the heat was to dive in the showers which at the time of using didnt want to get hot. You get free Wi-Fi, cooking falcilities, fridges (downstairs) and I heard that if you get up early enough you get free churros. Good hostel and it's constantly well kept by the cleaners. Would deffo stay again as i felt safe in this hostel

The only thing I can say that was good is the location. There was no warning that the Hostel would be under construction, which caused an unbearable noise. The kitchen was under construction. The drain in my bathroom was clogged, spurting water out (to the room, inclusive) and was clogged during the entire stay. Even though I reported it several times. The staff is not friendly at all. And very regular cleaning.

You’ll find Generator Barcelona conveniently located just a 5 minute walk from two main metro stations, Diagonal and Verdaguer. Travelling to and from the hostel to all the must see sights is a piece of cake. The beautiful sandy beaches are just a 15 minute metro journey away, and only a short walk away are the maze of small streets of the Eixample district, home to Barcelona’s trendy shops, bars and restaurants. Generator is the perfect place for those looking to combine style with great atmosphere. You’ll find great beds for sleepy heads, a communal TV room with outdoor patio to a chill out lounge/café that serves the best drinks and snacks for miles around. Choose from a great selection of rooms, from Dorms, to Quads, to Private en-suites with your own power socket and LED light for late night reading. Fast and free Wi-Fi is all yours too. To get the most out of your stay, visit the travel shop and our city experts will help you devise an itinerary that will take you to all the hidden treasures this dynamic city has to offer. Barcelona is the latest edition to the Generator family, We will see you there.
My experience at the Generator Barcelona was truly awful. Hostels are supposed to be easy, efficient and cheap places to stay. However, the Generator is none of those things. My trouble began when checking in. They claimed to not have me booked for 3 nights, despite my email which confirms I had a reservation. They proceeded to charge me 450€ (because I was not in the system) even though I confirmed I would pay 350€. That is completely unacceptable. They scrambled to find me a bed and put me in the most repulsive room with obnoxious roommates — one man came back drunk at 5am, vomiting and crying. My roomcard rarely worked and needed to be replaced several times. The pictures the Generator posts online are extremely deceiving, as the rooms are tiny, VERY hot, there are no lockers nor curtains. Staff members were very rude and not helpful at all. They took no accountability for their mistakes and made it seem like I caused the issues. Don’t they work in the hospitality industry? My stay at the Generator was anything but hospitable. Every other guest I spoke to also had poor experiences. Not to mention, after paying a ridiculous amount of money for a hostel (which should be cheap) I saw random people sleeping on lobby couches FOR FREE. So while I paid a ton of money for a tiny and uncomfortable bed, some people slept for free on the couch. Because my room was so awful, I found it easier to spend time in the lobby with my friends. However, when we tried having a conversation at a table, the front desk man rudely told us to shut up meanwhile there were loud and drunk people stumbling through the lobby at 3am. So you’re telling me, we cannot have a calm conversation with my friends, yet it’s okay to be loud and overly intoxicated? I will never recommend this hostel to anyone. Even if it’s your cheapest option - don’t go.

I have stayed in many hostels before but at TOC it was the first time I stayed in a shared room ( female only). I was a bit worried as I didn't know what to expect but it turned out great. The hostel is awesome, has friendly staff and is the most modern hostel I have ever stayed in. The rooms were quite nicely soundproofed as you couldn't hear much from the hallways as it is usual for other hostels. In my 6 bed female room, we had 2 toilets, 2 sinks, and 2 showers - it was enough. :) I will be coming back, definitely!

This is more hotel than hostel There are no cooking facilities or places for food storage. Food is prohibited in the rooms. The staff are efficient but not very friendly. On the plus side it is immaculately clean, comfortable and spacious. But our reason for choosing a hostel is because you can make a snack and meet people. There is a rooftop bar which would be lovely in warmer weather and there is a restaurant area where breakfast is served.

Hostal Santo Domingo, located in Madrid's Maravillas district, was first opened in 1962. Over the past 50 years it has provided a roof for thousands of visitors. In 2007 refurbishments were completed, transforming this pleasant Hostal into a comfortable and modern place to stay. All rooms have different decoration styles and their own bathroom, hairdryer, t.v. and telephone. Central heating, air conditioning, Wi-Free and cromotherapy are also provided.
I had to wait 30 min in the street in the middle of the night, I rang the bell called the reception and nothing. Luckily a guest let me in, and there was NOBODY in the reception, no one working here. I took 20 more for someone to arrive. Santo Domingo Hostal if you don’t have a 24 hours reception don’t say that you do, so guest don’t expect to check in at any time. On TOP of that the Hotel is Super dirty! The only positive thing is it’s location

We help you live, breathe, eat and sleep like a local while you discover Barcelona and the Barri de Gràcia, its culture, events and people. We're your home for a few days, we're Casa!
Do not believe the pictures with the filters, the rooms are in awkward condition and really really not worth the money. The staff behaves inappropriately, and the price really does not reflect what you get. It is better to stay away, pay a little more and get a reward ratio that is worth it.
