Liked: reception staff friendly and helpful. good beds...

Disliked: only ONE toilet per floor, with about 30 rooms. all the toilets and showers are on one floor - so if you wake up at 3 a.m. and have to puke or piss, you better hope no one is using that one toilet because you might have to travel several floors to get to an available toilet. the showers are nice but there is no shelf or bench and only ONE hook, so you have to put your things on the (wet) floor. that security guard is unfriendly and seems almost menacing, the way he just stands around watching everybody. and as I said earlier, how can you have a hostel that restricts food to its restaurants?

Liked: Great setup with the bar and dance floor and everything. Always something to do, and always someone to talk to. If you didn't enjoy your stay its your own fault.

Disliked: Doesn't feel as much like home as other hostels. The Generator is more commercialized and less personal as far as staff are concerned. That would pretty much be my only complaint.
