The shared bathrooms were dirty and most had broken doors and other fixtures - the female dorm was filthy and smelly. I had to upgrade to a private room at some expense. Also, I had something stolen - not of much monetary value but something I use frequently. The breakfasts were way overpriced and meagre. A very unpleasant place, don’t go there.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I was disappointed to hear about your experience with us. Your comments about the cleaniness have been shared with the team to learn and prevent this from happening in the future. This certainly isn't the level of service we wish to provide to our guests here at Generator. Our housekeeping team does work hard to keep everything looking at its best for guests, our policy is to monitor the rooms and clean any rubbish. If cleanliness is ever an issue, please don't hesitate to tell the staff as we will do our best to assist in situations like this. Our housekeeping team does work hard to make sure everything is looking it's best, I will however pass this on to them to make sure it will improve in the future. We are sorry to hear that you didn't find our breakfast being good value for money. We always try to offer great experience at competitive prices. We hope you still enjoyed your time in Paris, and hope to welcome you back in the future to leave a better impression on you. Theresa @Generator Paris

Amazing Hostel in Paris

Fantastic hostel located right near the train station "Colonel Fabien" for easy access to all of Paris' clubs and landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum. Rooms are in excellent condition, and there are great facilities like the cafe. There's also a rooftop bar with stunning views of Paris.
