Nice but only at a low price.
The Generator is actually a hostel for students of the local schools with a floor of hotel rooms sitting on top. The makes the stay vibrant and young but not relaxing and quiet. The checkin process is digital, slow and laborious. The food is great if you like the quality fast type. The rooms were very basic with no safe, no TV and no toiletries (except some shower gel). It’s a distance from the centre of Amsterdam but several teams stop close by. It’s also situated in a beautiful park. Consider the price for the rooms I felt this was a x3 markup for the type and style hotel.

The horror bedroom
When booking the hotel, at NO TIME was it informed that it was necessary to make additional payment for some basic items: towel, toilet paper, soap for showering, that's right, we didn't have these items that are basic, when questioning the attendant, she said that there was nothing I could do and that I should have looked on their official website and that this information SHOULD be on as I booked there. The photos in the ad do not reflect the quality of the rooms, we stayed at the hotel for 4 days but on no day they went to clean the room, they just went in and folded the toilet paper. We were very frustrated with the hotel facilities as well as the fact that we had to pay ADDITIONALLY for towel, toilet paper and bath soap. The word that best describes the stay was terror. When questioning the possibility of cancellation, they informed me that if I canceled I would lose the entire amount paid. Anyway, I don't recommend the hotel and even an uber that caught me pointed out that I'm not the only guest to complain, I even believe that should ask for a minimum of quality to offer the hotels on the site. In addition, the bed was not made, that's right, a sheet and blanket was folded for me to make my bed. pitiful. As a curiosity, the following values ​​are practiced: Toilet paper €3 Towel 5€ Soap €2

No regard for personal items.
It is clean and modern and ticks all hostel boxes but is majorly overpriced. Almost the same price as a 4 star hotel however I heard great things about Generator and thought I would try. You are instructed to bring your own towel which after the first night in my private 4 bed room with friends, It was taken. Reception blamed it on housekeeping (which never came to our room) but no action to actually compensate me for my personal property being taken nor a brand new replacement. Spoke to 3 different receptionists who all were trying to get me out of the line rather than help me. The offer was a cardboard quality overused towel given as a replacement which is not okay. Handover between receptionists is shocking. If the instruction is to bring personal items like towels and soaps then dont steal them off your guests! There wasnt much of an atmosphere that we purposefully booked for so would rather stay at a hotel closer to the centre where I wont have to worry about my personal belongings being taken.

I loved the fact that it is a hostel with 24/7 check in. Came in at 12:30 am and checked out at 10 am. Worked out perfect. Super nice roomates too. Would come back again without any hesitation
