Poor 2,0
Generator gives you half the value of any other ho
Wretched hostel and even a tourist trap fake city like Barca has better. This is the tiniest room of the last 10 I've stayed in..they have no respect for guests at all. There are no privacy shades either so the listing is fraudulent.
Reuben, ie2 night trip

Everything fine with the stay apart from maintenance staff letting themselves into the room

Good 6,0
Not my favourite Generator hostel, the dorm room for 8 felt suffocating and seemed like a health hazard really. I’ve been in big dorm rooms before and never mind it but this did not feel safe. There wasn’t much ventilation in the room either so whenever it got smelly(which isnt the fault of the hostel, obviously) it would be hard to air out the smell. I was not a fan of spain in general but the people working in the hostel from the front desk to the cleaners we’re all lovely which is what mattered. If you do plan on staying pay more for a four bedroom dorm which would help you breathe a bit better.
