Comfortable hostel with friendly staff. Neighborhood is on the tougher side, but safe enough to walk around at night. Conveniently located near Termini and a subway stop.

Holidays in Roma
I went to Roma on holidays. I stay that the Generator for 3 nights. Staff was very helpful. Walking distance from a lot of restaurants. Not to far from the center. 10 minutes from the Roma Termini.

One of best hostel I have stayed in.
Pros √ Extremely clean and spacious. √ Staff is super friendly and helpful. √ Beds are very comfortable (memory foam I believe) and the blanket feels just like the one back home. √ Huge lobby to relax/spend your evening meeting people/playing cards, etc. √ Buffet Breakfast is 7£ but is worth it as you can eat as much as you want. Get yourself an espresso for £1.50 and start your day Italian-style! √ Central location. (1 Metro stop away from Termini) Cons √ None Would recommend.

Nothing Impressive
From a loyal customer of Generator Chain it worth highlighting that Nothing was impressive about Generator Rome if compared to other Generator Hostels accross other European cities , No Severe ugly experience occured yet unfortunately i could rank it the least accross other generator hostels in terms of everything.
Sherif, us5 night trip
Very Good 8.0
Brilliant place to stay and not far away from some nice restaurants etc for the evening. Only downside for us ( as a couple in our late 20s) there were quite a few teenage/ young adults running around chasing and shouting really early in the morning (3am ish) however I guess this type of accommodation is more attractive to younger travelers, something for us to bear in mind for future travels. The place was brilliant though and the staff were very friendly and helpful!

Okay for 1 night, nice decor but wear & tear shows
Stay for one night in transit in 6 bed mixed dorm. Staff accommodated my request to switch beds in same room after I saw layout. There were two bathrooms which would have been nice but the door latch/lock on one bathroom didn’t work some most people only used the one. The room and bathroom were clean when I arrived the the bathroom could have benefited from a mud-day cleaning since most of use were using only one of the two in the room. The decor through the hostel is nicely done but this is a large hostel that has a lot of guests which shows in wear & year throughout (worn hallway carpets, broken door latches, have to push toilet button a particular way to actually flush, etc). As with other Generator hostels, there is an in-house bar and cafe with convenient but overpriced food and drinks. I found the food selection here to be limited and no outside food is allowed. The hostel is very close to Termini so there are lots of people on the streets in the area around the hostel. I found this similar to large transit centers I’m familiar with in the US so I used the same general precautions and felt safe. Overall, good good for one night stay that is convenient to transportation and sightseeing, but I wouldn’t stay for an extended period of time.
