Better than budget hotel
Private room is as good as any cheap hotel but much cleaner and better style.

Not really an Hostel
It is not really an hostel, yes it has shared rooms but there is no accomodations that you can normally find in an hostel: no kitchen, no washing maching (except the laundry service that cost 7 or 8 € like in a hotel), no possibility to bring food from outside and eat it in the common area (security told me to move away from the lounge area and I had to eat it in the bedroom). There a breakfeast available and didn't try it as it was very expensive (7.5€). You can find full breakfeast for cheaper in the bars in the area. So it is no really an atmosphere where you can meet people, it looks like a luxury hotel with shared bedrooms. Apart from that it is very clean, the rooftop (with a bar) is nice, and the staff is very friendly. The location is also very central and you barely need the metro.
julien, gb5 night trip
Good 6.0
It was a very tiny room for 4 people. The bunk beds were big enough for each individual person, but as soon as you get off of the bed, the rest of the room is tiny. The bathroom is very small and the door barely closes if you are a bigger person. The lobby smelled strange..And the ad for the room states that the room comes with amenities but they charged us 5 euro to rent a towel. All other amenities can be asked for at the front desk. But, they may charge to rent or buy.

Super location and a nice stay.
Air conditioning wasn't consistent - Hot/cold all night. And, if you wanted towels, you had to pay 5 euros for them. Otherwise, it was a very nice hostel in a great location with good amenities. Would use them again.

Once is enough...
Not really a hostel vibe. Way more of a hotel feel. The whole place feels too cool for school. Some stuff was very petty like 10 am check out instead of 11 and no place to store luggage for free once you’ve checked out. Glad I stayed once, the rooftop is great! Doubt I will return to stay at Generator again when there are so many great places in Madrid. Places that gladly hold your luggage for you free of charge, so you can enjoy your day in the city and have free coffee and tea all day for guests.

Fair 4.0
Modern and clean but Noisey!!!
Its a nice new slick hostel with private rooms. The night we were there our floor was full of a huge group of noisy teenagers making incredible noise till 4am. Not normal hostel “I’m drunk and noisy coming home” noise but totally unacceptable obnoxious noise. Went to front desk at 2am to complain. They sent someone up to have a look and it quieres down for all of ten minutes. Horrible night sleep. They gave us 10% off the stay which was almost an insult. Staff in general are nice but totally unable or unwilling to help. Bottom line 1: you go to a hotel to sleep and it was inpossible . Bottom line 2: buyer beware - they book large groups of kids so if you definitely want a reasonably quiet stay best look elsewhere. It’s a shame because it’s a very nice place with brand new stylish rooms and a great common area downstairs, all in a great neighborhood close to malesańa and chueca.
