Generator Hostel to Open in Paris Feb 1

Generator Hostels will open their first Paris hostel on Feb 1, bringing their worldwide total to nine.

With 950 beds in five room categories--including private rooms with private terraces--this is the largest Generator so far. Amenities include "bespoke" beds, en suite bathrooms, power showers, fast and free WiFi and interiors designed to evoke a boutique-hotel experience. Generator's slogan is ''affordable luxury."

Generator Paris sits in an old office building in the 10th arondissement, a 15-minute walk from the Gare du Nord (and the Eurostar). It's close to Buttes-Chaumont Park, art galleries, vintage shops and the cafes by the Canal St. Martin. 

They have a 24-hour bar/lounge with large screen TV, breakfast service from 7 am to 10 am, a cafe serving ''locally influenced" food from noon to 10 pm,  snack machines, a chill-out room, a 24-hour laundry room, 24-hour reception, luggage storage, a multi-lingual staff and a shop for buying tour tickets and such. There will also be occasional events such as live or DJ music, art collaborations and more. 

The London-based company, founded in 1995, already has "design-led" hostels up and running in Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, Dublin, Hamburg, London and Venice. Properties in Rome and Amsterdam are coming soon. .

Rates begin at just 25€ per night. To see all room categories and prices for Paris, click hereThe full website is here

Photos: Paris photos haven't been shot yet but these four renderings should do in the meantime. The room photos are from the Generator Hostel in Barcelona: a private room, female shared room, premium room and private quad.
