During our time in Berlin, we had the luxury of staying in one of the most happening hostels in all of Berlin, the Generator. A colleague of mine Tania started her own booking company, The Poshpacker, a site dedicated in helping travelers find hip and affordable hostels catered towards millennials. Thus, The Poshpacker definitely helped ease the burden of searching for a hostel since all of the hostel recommendations fit well within my flair and standards. (highly recommend it for backpackers since it's also a great vehicle for finding hostels to meet new people). While bogging can definitely have its perks, I was beyond surprised when I was greeted at the front desk with complimentary stays and breakfast tokens. Not only did the welcoming greet get me amped up for Berlin, but the look and feel, the environment, rooms, additional amenities... it far exceeded all my previous Hostel experiences. Hostel living can be luxurious and affordable, and the Generator is a great example of one. Click below for more details on my stay.
|Located right in the center of Berlin, the location of the Generator was conveniently amazing. Just 2 blocks away |
from the metro station, bars right across the street, restaurants, stores and coffee shops all over & within walking distance
|Currynuss, drinks and a personalized welcome card awaited us us in our private 4-bedroom hostel.|
Talk about knowing how to greet your guests and making the stay feel as customized as possible.
|The cute outdoor area inside the Generator. Another great place to socialize, relax or to play ping-pong!|
|The lounge in the community room dining area with books available for reading. Such a comfortable place to chill.|
|Truth be told, we only made it to breakfast on the days where we stayed up all night. |
6AM on the dot, we got to enjoy a healthy breakfast of bread, salami, cheese, yogurts, fruits and cereal.
|The wonderful group of girls that I went traveling with. From clockwise starting with me, Christina (my best friend), |
Sharon (practically a sister of mine), and Josephine (another good friend that I love traveling with).
