The hostel is in a good location. Close to Russell Square and Kings Cross station. There are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets near by the hostel.
The hostel its self is like a factory.
Its not the most warm and comfortable hostel.
It must of been a old factory or hospital. The hostel has no kitchen or common room besides the over priced bar/restaurant.
The staff in the hostel are rude and not helpful. I have stayed in other Generator hostel in Europe and never experienced this bad service before. The place is also overpriced.
There are only one bathroom on each floor of for males and females. With 4 toliets and 4 showers. The shower all flow into one drain in the middle of the floor. Its a slip hazzard and bad hygiene.
The showers leak after you turn them off. The shower area is small with nowhere to store your stuff from getting wet by the shower.
Overall if you are desperate for accommodation maybe stay there. I know that I wouldn't be staying there again.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The beds are good for a hostel. I prefer the Generator in Barcelona overall. The bathrooms could do with some work. Rather dark an dingy despite being clean for the most part. Horrible shower curtains that are too small etc…
Noise went on all night on the smoking patio outside my room. Make sure to avoid room 011 in the basement. If the rooms in the rest of the property were just as clean and spacious they might be great but my room which was a premium priced room had noise all night long , long after the bars would close on a relatively calm weekday.
