Generator Hostel London Review: Russell Square

Agoda and Tripadvisor, you guys are the almighty demi gods when it comes to travel accommodation listings! The second I planned out a hostel escapade in the United Kingdom, I found one best hostels I’ve ever been to in these two sites. The Generator Hostel London in Tavistock Place, Russell Square happens to be one the grooviest hostels I ever come across, it’s a good add-on experience when you’re visiting London city and you like to have that sort of backpacking in a first-world kind of familiarity.

From the Heathrow Airport down, the black cab took us in the middle of the map, right beside busy streets and interesting alleys. The Generator Hostel London is private enough to have its own place and public enough have it blended into the whole London city crowd area.

The check-in process is a synch. Without delay, we were mazing around the corridors upon corridors of this huge hostel. And by huge, I mean five floors of intense corridors. Every floor is modern minimalist English-inspired and color coordinated. The facilities are complete – hairdryer, no bedbugs, unlimited use of free wifi. Their common bathrooms are bloody brilliant - clean, efficient, and private. Refurbished cinema, café, a bar area, laundry, security store rooms, and a hungry-efficient kitchen – all check – &&& live music, DJ’s, art collaborations and must-go hostel events featuring the best local talents – all check. You’ll see all age limits and race specifics in almost every corner; it’s a multicultural madness of cool.

You’ll even get to experience some sort of affordable luxury in their shared rooms and private twins. It’s like a hotel staycation, but at a tolerable damage in your pocket. You can throw in a party inside the room ‘cos it’s that sociable. Clean sheets, sizable space, and most importantly, very secure. The lockers under the beds provide lots of storage. Sleep quality is a five out of five rating for me!

The Generator Hostel London is a good recommendation for big young and yuppie groups, families of all ages (yes, we saw a bunch of white-haired folks enjoying the young crowd haha), couples, soloists, and even business people, why not. Next London Trip? Would stay here again - guaranteed great location, great modern hostel, and great vibe.
