Why We Love It

- Many of Madrid's most famous sights and attractions -- such as the Prado Museum, Retiro Park and the Plaza Mayor -- are within walking distance of the hotel
- "The young team are welcoming and helpful with impressive knowledge of Madrid’s cultural, gastronomic and nightlife scenes", says The Telegraph

Opened in April, 2018, The Generator Madrid is a stylish hostel in the centre of Spain's vibrant capital. The property is 100 metres from the Gran Vía -- "the grand boulevard lined with towering belle-époque facades that climbs up through the centre of Madrid" (Lonely Planet).
The property is less than 10 minutes' walk from the Royal Palace, the official residence of the Spanish Royal Family. This impressive 18th-century building is open to the public (except during state ceremonies) for tours of the banqueting rooms, the throne room, the residential areas and the Royal Armoury (fees apply).
Two of the city's main squares are also less than 5 minutes away on foot: 17th-century Plaza Mayor -- "one of the prettiest open spaces in Spain" (Lonely Planet) -- and Puerta del Sol, which is Madrid's most central square and contains the statue of the Bear and the Strawberry Tree -- a sculpted version of the city's coat of arms.
Back at the hostel, The Generator "is a fun no-frills place [...] with dorms, industrial design, a groovy rooftop bar and a friendly vibe", says The Telegraph. Originally built in 1930 the former gas station is now a 6-storey building designed with the Generator touch but sprinkled with local flair.
Kick back on the hostels' rooftop terrace with a cocktail after discovering all Madrid has to offer or chill-out and make new friends in the café. Facilities include also 2 hot tubs and a private parking.
Generator Madrid's rooms are bright and combine classic and modern elements. All of them are equipped with air conditioning and private bathroom with a shower. In the Twin Rooms you can find free toiletries, towels and a hairdryer.
