I liked how the atmosphere felt, it was cool, calm and comforting :)
Amazing location, very clean. It is not spacious, but the room has comfy beds, and its own small bathroom. It’s everything you need.
When I arrived, I was told that I was going to have to change rooms during my three day stay, which is not fair. I had paid just as much as any other person staying at Generator. I asked to get refunded and multiple employees said that I would be able to be refunded for the second two nights, but not the first, which I was fine with. When the manager finally reached out to me, they said I could not be refunded, because they sent me an email informing me of that I needed to change rooms only 24 hours before I arrived to this hostel. I had been traveling for a couple weeks at this point so I didn’t have reliable access to my email and so I never saw it. This is unfair, because I was unable to cancel my stay and receive a refund. I was misinformed by multiple employees and was asked to change rooms, which makes me feel less important than other guests staying at the Generator at the same time even thought I was paying the same amount as them. This was not a good experience with this hostel or the team of employees. I am disappointed that I never received a refund for how misinformed I was. I would not recommend Generator hostels.
It is in the hart of old Edinburgh, it is safe, and it is cheap.
Being a hostel we did not expect much, for two nights is alright.
Nice hostel with adequate facilities and very good price. Perfect old town location!
Electric pluggs not available for top bunks...
