Get ready for the trip of a lifetime at Generator Barcelona

Barcelona - a city so good Freddie Mercury wrote a song about it. If you’re thinking of taking a trip to this Spanish paradise, you’re going to want to find a place to stay that is as fun and stylish as the city itself. Generator Barcelona keeps it cool and comfortable in one of Europe’s hottest cities and is the perfect affordable hotel for your Catalonian adventure.

Our design-led hotel is just a stone’s throw away from Gaudí’s iconic Casa Batlló, but you’ll soon discover that there is so much more to Barcelona than Gaudí. A city built right on the beach, Barcelona keeps things cultured with its awe-inspiring architecture but world-class football, a famous food and drink scene and buzzing nightlife keep visitors on their toes.

Whatever your budget, Generator Barcelona has got your back. Our shared rooms are great for seasoned travellers who are on the lookout to meet new people. There are stylish terraced king rooms to offer a little bit more privacy, and our penthouse suite is the luxurious cherry on top - with some unreal panoramic views of Barcelona’s iconic skyline and the Sagrada Familia.

When you’re not exploring the city, you’ll love hanging out in our Gràcia hotel. Our bar and lounge is the perfect place to swing by for a coffee before heading out into the sun, or stopping for a drink and a bite to eat before hitting the town. You’ll even spot some cool features in the hotel like a winding spiral staircase, hanging chairs and tiles chosen to reflect the Catalonian style. Generator Barcelona is the perfect starting point to experience everything Barcelona has in store.

When you stay at Generator Barcelona, you’ll understand why we’re so proud of it. Whether you’re kicking back in a common area with some new friends, grabbing a coffee or cocktail at the bar, or having a little ‘siesta’ on one of our private terrace rooms (treat yo’self right?), you’ll feel relaxed, comfortable and surrounded by beautiful things.

Every single one of our affordable hostel rooms has all of the modern touches you’d expect - free WiFi is standard everywhere, and you’ll find enough plug sockets to charge your phone and laptop too. We offer female-only dorms for groups of friends or solo travellers alike. If you want to arrange a really special place to stay in Barcelona, our private penthouse suite has a king size bed, its own bathtub and an amazing panoramic view of the city - you can literally see Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia from your window!


At Generator Barcelona the fiesta is right on your doorstep. We can be whatever you want us to be. Heading out to discover Barcelona’s nightlife? You’ll find like minded travellers right here in the Fiesta Gràcia bar! Want a place to relax after a long day of exploring the city?

Across the street, our friends at Pikio Taco are open until midnight so you know you can get fresh, tasty food at any time - our guests are always welcome. Take the scenic route around the city with easy bike rental, or take the lead in one of our meeting rooms that are available to all of our guests.


Find Generator Barcelona in the vibrant barrio of Gràcia, a beautiful part of the city that artists and creatives call home. You’ll find that this area oozes plenty of independent spirit, from the Festa Major de Gràcia - a week long street party in August - to the contemporary art galleries and street art that are definitely worth seeking out.

It’s so easy to explore the rest of the city from Generator Barcelona. Public transport links are close by, and it’s only about a 30-minute walk to the Gothic Quarter. Or why not take in the sights on your way down to Barceloneta beach? Wander past the iconic La Sagrada Familia and then enjoy a quick picnic pitstop at Parc de la Ciutadella on the way.


It’s easy to plan the perfect trip when your place to stay in Barcelona is already sorted. All our Generator locations are friendly, social and really comfortable so you’re in good hands whether you’re travelling solo, on a city break with your pals or seeking out romantic spots with that special someone. Travellers in our shared rooms can enjoy their own peace and quiet with privacy boards on every bunk and individual reading lights to make your space extra cosy. While our private rooms offer a little bit of affordable luxury in the city.

Whichever you decide, all our rooms are design-led with eye-popping visuals, cosy comforts, and extras such as secure storage and complimentary WiFi. Plus, when you book a room at Generator Barcelona as a group, enjoy some extra perks on us. Including your pick of rooms or your very own over-18s party at the Fiesta Gràcia bar!


We really want you to have a great time in our wonderful hotel, and you’ll find that Generator Barcelona is one of the most sociable hostels in the city. You’ll always find a friendly face at reception and we’ve made every effort to make sure that our social spaces are as comfortable and approachable as possible.

Our local restaurant, Pikio Taco is just across the street, giving our guests access to fresh food and amazing margaritas all day every day, and you’ll find live music and karaoke at our Fiesta Gràcia bar. It’s a great place to hang out with a beer and a bite to eat.
