About Generator Amsterdam

Looking for a stylish backdrop to your city break? Winner of the Hospitality Design Best Economy Hotel Award, our Amsterdam hostel offers flexible accommodation for you and your travel buddies. Ride your bicycle along café-lined waterways, visit the most creative shops around De Pijp or just kick back by the canal and try a few cold Dutch beers. It’s pretty hard to get stressed in Amsterdam, but having a good time is easy – especially when you’re staying in one of the city’s most sociable hotels.

Generator Amsterdam is located in the up-and-coming eastern side of the city, overlooking Oosterpark. This former zoological university building can accommodate 564 guests in 168 twin and quadruple rooms, with en-suite bathrooms and incredible views of the surrounding area. There is also one luxury apartment for six people, with views of the park and a self-catered kitchen. It has flexible and spacious social areas, filled with creative design touches like glass-fronted elevators, a light and airy café and an outdoor terrace. We’ve turned the former lecture hall into an impressive chill-out lounge and bar, while the old library is now a relaxation and private events room. The basement and café are now dining destinations and the original boiler room has become a secret late night bar.

Generator Amsterdam provides guests with a beautiful café, two lively bars, and even a spacious sanctuary in the form of a converted library. Rarely a day goes by without there being an unmissable party or event to attend. Expect local music, delicious drinks and social events like karaoke from the Oosterbar. And when you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll find fine local food in the Nescio café. With chill-out areas on offer too, you’ve got the perfect social space for meeting like-minded travellers from around the globe! To make sure you don’t miss out on the action, keep an eye on our Parallel travel blog. This offers the news on upcoming events and attractions throughout the city.
