REVIEW OF STOCKHOLM GENERATOR HOSTEL
As you probably know or have heard Stockholm is not a cheap city, but there are ways of doing Stockholm in an inexpensive way. The Generator Hostel is the best option for any traveler. At about $75 for a private and $18 for a dorm, its perfect for any budget.
I’ve had the pleasure of staying with Generator Hostels before Stockholm and I must say that each hostel is better than the previous one. I love that they are treated more like a hotel at a hostel price. You have the option of a dorm to save some money or a private if you need some space. They really care about their guests and it was a pleasure to stay there.
The Generator Hostel Stockholm is in the PERFECT location. Located about 5 minutes walking from the central station it is easily accessible to any point in the city. The hostel is extremely easy to find and provide easy to follow directions on how to get there from the central station. The location is quiet at night and felt extremely safe to walk around. I had a 5 am early bus to the airport when the sun wasn’t even up and felt extremely safe walking around the neighborhood to the train station.
This hostel really is treated more like a hotel than a hostel. The service was incredible. From the moment I checked in, I felt welcomed. The front desk was extremely helpful with the check-in process, offered maps, and answered any and all questions I had. There is also a laundry, bike rental, and storage service that they offer. I didn’t use any of these but it was nice that they offered them just in case I needed them.
The private room I was in was better than most private rooms in hostels. Definitely more like a hotel feel. The room was very spacious and came with its own bathroom, beautiful big windows with a ton of natural light, and your own desk. There was housekeeping the fixed your room every day or you can put up the do not disturb sign. The actual bed wasn’t the most comfortable bed I’ve slept in, but for a few nights, it was ok.
Common area: 8/10
The common area in this hostel was beautiful, I felt like I was sitting at a nice Swedish café having some afternoon Swedish fika rather than at a hostel. There are a few common areas throughout the hostel and each has a bit of a different vibe. You can relax, play games, or enjoy a glass of wine, depending on which common area you’re in. I will say that the common areas were a bit quieter than regular hostels and other generator hostels I’ve stayed in. Many people kept to themselves (similar to a hotel feel) rather than made friends and mingled.
Food and Beverages: 9/10
There are many different food options at the Generator. They have a breakfast menu and a lunch/dinner menu. Prices were reasonable for Sweden and the food was delicious. They do offer discounts on breakfast if you come in early or purchase tickets the previous day. From the ba, they had a great selection of beers, alcohol, and wine, also offering an assortment of snacks and sweets throughout the day.
The Generator Hostel is the perfect option for any traveler. It’s great for budget travelers, single travelers, even families. My overall experience was great and I would definitely stay with Generator again. Thanks Generator for the wonderful hospitality and stay.
