Generator Hostel

  • Youth hostels

Opened in January 2015 with nearly 950 beds, a rooftop, bar, restaurant and veranda, Generator Paris the largest hostel in Europe.

It offers a selection of premium rooms, some with terrace, plus luxury dormitories with private bathrooms.

15 minutes' walk from the Gare de l’Est and the Gare du Nord, Generator Paris is ideally located for strolling through Buttes-Chaumont Park or along Saint-Martin canal.

Hip galleries. Boutique shops. Pastoral cafés. Canal St. Martin in the 10th Arrondissement is everything you’d expect from the French capital, but with more than its fair share of contemporary cool.

Generator Paris stands opposite Oscar Niemeyer’s iconic French Communist Headquarters. The hostel is just a few steps from Canal Saint-Martin and Buttes-Chaumont Park.

With an intoxicating mix of cinematic design, rich colours, a sparkling reception and the Moroccan chill-out space with artwork by Pieter Ceizer, you’ll feel like you’re on the set of a Parisian art-house movie.

On the hostel’s ground floor you'll find Café Fabien with its canteen and conservatory overlooking the garden.

A curved staircase leads down to the vaulted ceilings of Le Club, inspired by the Paris Metro.

Head up to the 9th floor to discover Le Rooftop, with its bar and awe-inspiring views of Sacré-Cœur and Montmartre. Our Paris hostel represents the very best of Paris, all under one roof.

Generator Hostel signed the charter of the OTCP for sustainable accommodations.
