Liked: Had an amazing stay! Met some awesome people, and the hostel was really cool!

Disliked: The rooms were crowded, and you didn't have much space. No matter how quiet people were, you still didn't get a good night's sleep :( Hotel breakfast was really disappointing.

Liked: I loved that there were multiple common room areas on different floors and a cafe and bar, so that you could vary where you went in the hostel based on your mood. I also loved that the wifi connection was strong, fast, reliable and available everywhere in the hostel.

Disliked: The only downside of an otherwise excellent hostel was that they were really opposed to people bringing their own food for meals - there was only one small bar fridge in the hostel for guests food and there were no preparation facilities except a microwave. When I asked if a could use a spoon for breakfast to eat my yogurt I was told I would have to buy one from reception - reality check guys it's a hostel people are on a budget, let them eat their own food if they want. Do be tight and try to force people to buy your meals.

Liked: The staff were great, the hostel had a really nice atmosphere, and it was located quite near the Sagrada Familia. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

Disliked: The rooms were quite small (including bathroom and shower), and there wasn't anyplace you could go in the lobby/restaurant/game area/reading area where there wasn't fairly loud music playing (sometimes it's nice to be able to read someplace outside of your room).

Liked: This was the second time I´ve stayed at the Generator Barcelona. The staff are always friendly and willing to help at any time of the day! Plenty of awesome facilities on offer which really helps to make a stay worthwhile! Generator is located in a pretty awesome position, only a 10 minute walk from La Sagrada Familia and only a bit further to Park Guell. Would definitely recommend this hostel!

Liked: Friendly staff, relatively good location for Barcelona and comfortable mattresses.

Disliked: Whilst on the surface it looks like a trendy new hostel, it seemed to be poorly looked after, the room was pretty dirty and wasn't cleaned during my stay there.
