Generator is on a journey. Appropriate, given that we're a hostel accommodation brand. The journey began in London, swung through a heap of European capitals on its way to dominating the world. No biggie. Fast Company named us one of the top 50 most innovative global companies. We, of course, agree. And now this top 50 most innovative global company (did we mention that?) wants a pretty awesome Assistant Facility Manager for Generator Berlin Mitte.

Our spaces are safe and seriously social, in the proudest part of the beating heart of the cities we love. Cultural action, creative pulse and an outstanding way to waste some of the finite time the universe has given you - that's what Generator offers. Holds true for staff and visitors equally, and while chic design is always the backdrop, every Generator in every destination reflects the unique beat of that city's heart.

BEING YOURSELF is the key to bringing the Generator story and brand to life. 


Winner of the 2017 Trip Expert Experts' Choice Award. Berlin’s renaissance has made it one of the most appealing cities for artists and musicians, its reputation cemented as a cultural powerhouse where epic party nights aren’t just one-offs. Once you come you won’t want to leave. Generator Berlin Mitte is right in the heart of the city. Formerly two 19th century office buildings, it’s now fused into one arts-focused über hostel. And it’s all within stress-free walking distance of Hackescher Markt, Alexanderplatz and Kunsthaus Tacheles.

For art enthusiasts, the hostel includes a sculptural string installation by French artist Sebastian Preschoux and corridors filled with super-sized signature faces by Thierry Noir. A historic courtyard, vibrant social spaces and a chill-out library make it feel like a real home away from home.
