Get ready for the trip of a lifetime at Generator Amsterdam

Need a place to crash in Amsterdam that is fun, stylish and affordable? Well, look no further than Generator Amsterdam! We’re the perfect backdrop for your next city break in The Dam, offering travellers like you top-notch affordable accommodation with a lively atmosphere.

Our design-led hotel is located in the up-and-coming eastern side of the city, overlooking Oosterpark in a former zoological university building, making it one of the most unique hotels to stay at in Amsterdam. Plus, we are in the heart of the city’s action, so you can cycle along café-lined waterways, visit independent local shops in De Pijp or kick back by the canal with a few cold Dutch beers.

Having a good time in the Dutch Capital is as easy as eating stroopwafel - especially when you’re staying in one of Amsterdam’s quirkiest hotels. And the best part? You won’t have to break the bank!

No matter the budget, Generator Amsterdam has a room for everyone. With our private and shared rooms, we can accommodate 564 guests in 168 rooms - from a luxury penthouse suite to glass-encaged private rooms overlooking Oosterpark, twins, quads, triple bunk beds and even our latest addition - drumroll please - our spanking new sleeping pods!

In our Oosterpark hotel you'll discover some amazing social spots to hang out at with your mates or make some new friends. Think roomy, flexible spaces amped up with creative design twists like glass-fronted elevators that'll make you feel like you're riding into the future, a café so breezy and bright it's practically a vitamin D haven, plus an outdoor terrace where you can chill for hours on end (cold beer in hand, obvs).

But that's not all – we've waved our magic wand over the old lecture hall, turning it into an impressive chill-out lounge and bar. And the old library? Yeah, now it's your secret hideout for kicking back or throwing down private events. Feeling peckish? Head to either the basement or cafe and grab a drink or bite to eat, while the original boiler room has shape-shifted into the ultimate hush-hush, after-hours hangout…we told you this hotel was one-of-a-kind.

To quote everyone’s favourite fictional popstar, by staying at Generator Amsterdam, ‘you get the best of both worlds.’

At Generator, we take the affordability and social aspect of a hostel, and combine it with the luxury and design flair of a boutique hotel. Mix ‘em both together and you get comfy rooms to rest your head, stylish spaces for you to mingle with likeminded travellers, plus an exciting social calendar like none other. Yep, Generator Amsterdam truly has it all.


Amsterdam isn't like any other - you can stroll down its historic canals and discover hidden gems at every corner, because this city doesn't do ordinary. At Generator Amsterdam, there’s some of the city’s best bars and café hangouts right under our roof, but let's talk about what's beyond our doorstep.

Picture this: laid-back coffee shops, electric discothèques, and the iconic red-light district that's just the tip of the adventure iceberg. Foodies will be spoiled for choice in this famously multicultural city; Amsterdam’s restaurant scene is totally unique. For all you music junkies out there, the party never stops with year-round festivals and events that'll keep you moving.


Generator Amsterdam is perfectly placed between Centrum and Oost boroughs, providing views of the Oosterpark’s scenic English garden right next door. From our budget hotel in Amsterdam it couldn’t be easier to get out and about; there’s ample public transport nearby to put you among the museums, music events, nightlife and culture on offer in every corner.



If you’re looking for a central hotel in Amsterdam that’s both social and stylish, then staying at Generator is a no-brainer.

All our rooms are design-led with eye-popping visuals, cosy comforts, and extras such as secure storage, complimentary WiFi, and a whole lot more. Plus, when you book a room at Generator Amsterdam as a group, enjoy some extra perks on us, including your pick of rooms or your very own over-18s party at the Oosterbar!


We don’t like to brag, but we are, in our opinion, one of the most sociable hostels in Amsterdam. Why? Well, for starters, we have a bunch of social spaces dotted throughout our hotel; there’s a beautiful cafe, not one but two lively bars and even a chill-out lounge in the form of a converted library - big flex, we know.

If there’s one thing you can guarantee about Gen Amsterdam, it’s that there’s always something going on - rarely a day goes by without an unmissable party or event to attend. We’ve got local artists performing live music, karaoke nights and plenty of delicious cocktails over at Oosterbar. And when you’ve worked up an appetite, you’ll find some of the tastiest local food in the Nescio Café. With chill-out areas on offer too, you’ve got the perfect blend of fun and social spaces to connect with like-minded travellers from all across the world.
