Generator Hostels is Bringing Their Lively (and Affordable) Brand to NYC
We've written about the Generator hybrid hostel/hotel brand before, particularly when looking for affordable places to stay in big European cities. But now we might get our very own Generator here in the states in New York City.
A while ago we heard whispers of a Generator for Manhattan and when we reached out to the hotel's PR reps they told us that yes, an NYC property is very much in the works. Elaborating, the rep said, "The team is exploring a few different options around the city."
That is good news for anyone who's trying to find a decent night's stay for around $100 in the Big Apple (and not just when it's freezing cold out.) And the Generator NYC will probably go under $50 or less than that for a shared room. But aside from being a doable price point, Generator puts a lot of emphasis on design, technology and socializing, a combination you don't always get when you're looking for an affordable stay.
Most Generators, like the recently opened Generator Berlin Mitte, features a bar that's open nightly, a library & cafe where breakfast and snacks are served, thoughtful room design and decor touches, free WiFi and lots of colorful in-house local art. Yes, it's the perfect spot for Millennials but we'd totally crash here for a night or two. In a private room, of course.
