Liked: really cool and funky design : the lobby looked like a modern-art exhibit. Excellent wifi connection

Disliked: the left-luggage room was a bit insecure, with many bags in one room and no verification system (such as labels) or anything, even if only the staff had access to the room (they'd never remember which bag belongs to whom)

Liked: The Generator is a super cool place! Great location. Hipster decor (esp the bar, cafe, lounge areas) The dorms are basic but clean, with secure lockers. Ensuite bathrooms (though v tiny) are good. But the best thing about the Generator is the vibe—the really cool and helpful staff. The cafe has a simple breakfast, and the hip in-house bar has a rocking party on weekends. The DJs were spinning some super tracks till early one morning and the next day I realized they were actually the hostel staff! My stay here was fantastic.

Disliked: Nothing at all. All was great! But just something I'd like to point out to the hostel: was staying in a 6 room dorm where 4 beds were taken up by a part of a 11 member business men group who had come for training. All 11 used both the rooms as a common area. One of them slept on the floor (coz they had booked in only for 10). Not the kind of company you'd want in a young hostel. The idea of living in a cool hostel is to meet fun travelers not shady business men looking for a cheap accommodation.

Liked: The staff were helpful, the bar is kinda cool, the rooms are clean

Disliked: It is not in a great location, its a 20 minute walk to la ramba, and at least 40mins to the beach. There are not many bars close by with the exception of the hostel bar. The metro ride to the beach takes 20mins minimum, as the metro stops are both a few blocks away. Also €7 for washing and drying is a bit steep, especially when only half of the machines worked. I didn't dislike the hostel but i do think that the location detracts from the Barcelona experience.

Liked: The place is really big so you meet lots of people. The bar set up is fantastic and the entertainment zone with couches, pool table etc was great fun. The wifi is good quality and everyone was super nice. The breakfast is only 4.50 and was like a buffet.

Disliked: The showers in the rooms are clean but TINY. Don´t expect to get changed in the shower room after a shower. The night life at the hostel was great but they didn´t offer much else during the day.
