    The Generator Hostel is situated in a quiet street brimming with culture, nightlife and just that little taste of residential London life.

    The hostel itself is an old police station with comfortable rooms - if not a little small - a pumping bar and good lounge and common rooms.
    At the time of writing they had just completed a major renovation which I am yet to check out.

    Conveniently located a 5-10 minute walk from Russell Square (Piccadilly Line) or 10-15 minute walk from Kings Cross St Pancras (Circle, Piccadilly, Hammersmith & City, Victoria, Metropolitan, Northern tube lines and Eurostar, Southeaster, East Midlands Trains, First Capital Connect, East Coast and Hull Trains serving the UK and Europe)

    THE backpacker party hostel in London. Interior reminds me of a science fiction movie - a bit spaceship-esque!

    This is a MASSIVE hostel. If you are looking for a cheap place to stay with a few friends it's great, but if you are a solo traveler it's not a good place to meet people.
    The location is convenient, close to transport and a safe neighborhood.
