Latest & Greatest: The newest property from Generator, Europe’s fastest-growing hostel brand, opened this week (14 May, 2013) in Barcelona with beds starting from just €13 per person, per night.

Located in the fashionable Gràcia district, smack dab in the middle of Barcelona’s two main Metro stations of Diagonal and Verdaguer, and as little as 15 minutes away from la playa, this hip new hostel hotel is as wallet-friendly as it is gorgeous and amenity packed.

With free Wi-Fi, a stylish bar and chill-out areas, 24-hour security plus a free walking tour of the city, this cool new hostel is definitely bookmark worthy. 


As Generator’s new flagship location, the 154-room Barcelona hostel is Generator’s only hotel and hostel combination. The 40 hotel rooms on the upper floors offer guests the added luxury of their own private terrace with striking views across the city skyline from the Sagrada Familia towards the Mediterranean.

Prices start from just £11 / €13 / $17pp per night in an en-suite dorm. Private en-suite twin hostel rooms are available from £24 / €28 / $37pp per night while hotel rooms start from £35 / €41 / $54pp per night, both based on two people sharing.
