5/5 Excellent

Each time I come to one of the Generator hostels I feel very welcomed. The location is alright and the hostel's bar is always great to meet up new people which is great fore a solo traveler. The showers are really fine too. The staff is great as always :) This time I found out I had to bring an adapter for UK electricity, which didn't happen last time I've been there. But it's great it has the option to charge my phone through a USB.
