Generator Hostels are a reliable brand throughout Europe, so you know what you’re getting with this London location. The whole place has a strong emphasis on cool, hip design that references classic British elements without going too cheesy. The rooms are colorful and practical, with comfy mattresses and lockable storage space for each dorm bed.
You can choose between classic dorm rooms, private rooms with shared bathrooms, or en-suite private rooms. All are very well priced for a budget stay in London, and it’s worth checking out the private options if you are traveling in a group as they can end up being a similar price to a dorm a bed.
One of the best things about a Generator Hostel is the focus on meeting and hanging out with fellow hostel guests. The bar is a great place to start a night out and maybe make some new friends for the night – there is even a dance floor, so you may find yourself not leaving the hostel at all. There are also other common areas for hanging out and relaxing, and the food at the cafe is tasty.
The location is close to St Pancras/King’s Cross Stations, which is ideal for those traveling by train to and from those stations. This is also a large hub for various Underground lines, so you can reach most places in London very easily – Soho’s gay bars are just a 15-minute trip on the Piccadilly line. There are also a few gay venues in the area, including Central Station, Urban @ Scala, and New Bloomsbury Set (which is just three doors down).
