After a long journey, we finally arrived at our residence for three nights, the Generator Hostel. This brings us to the first hotspot. What a nice place to start and end your days in London!The hostel is a bit hidden and the building used to be a police station, but there is nothing left of the police station. The Generator Hostel features spots to chill everywhere. With the expressive patterns, a lot of colours, a cinema room and a bar, this hostel is the perfect place for young hip people who loves sociability. When you enter there is immediately a good atmosphere. Check the following video and pictures to get an impression of the amazing Generator Hostel! And click here to visit the website.
As already mentioned the Generator Hostel is a bit hidden. No worries, it’s not in the middle of nowhere. In fact it’s not so far away from the big city! In 5 minutes walk you are at the nearest underground stations, Russel Square or King’s Cross. From there you are in central London within minutes. The hostel is also within walking distance of Covent Garden, Regents Park and the British Museum.
Long live the metro! We have walked. a lot. in Londen the first day. So the second day, we’ve decided to take the metro mostly. If you are going to London for a few days and plan to use the public transport, we recommend to buy an Oyster travelcard. This is a card where you put money on. At the begin of your journey, you have to check in with the card and at the end you check out. A one way trip costs £2.40. That sounds expensive, but when you are travelling the whole day you’ll only pay till £5.60. This is much cheaper than when you buy individual tickets every time. Want a Oyster card? Take a look for more information here.
After a long day strolling trough London, you’re probably ready for some sleep. Welcome to your own colour Paradise! What facilities are available varies per room. For example, in a room for four people there are two bunkbeds, a little table with a chair and a sink. It’s small, but enough. You are just there to sleep! In the hallway are toilets and showers.
So, what do you think? Is it worth a visit? Let us know! We’ve had a great lodging anyway and definitely recommend the Generator Hostel. Especially when you’re with a big group, this is a perfect place. But even if you are with four or just with two, this is a nice place to stay your time in London!
Oh and there are also offices in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona, Dublin, Rome, Miami, Hamburg, Stockholm and Venice. So if you’re planning a trip to one of this cities you know what you have to do!
