    Stockholm is one of the fastest growing cities in northern Europe, embracing its bank of up-and-coming fashion, design, and musical talent. It wasn’t going to be long before Generator made its mark on the Swedish capital.

    Located close to the Stockholm city centre in the thriving technology hub at Torsgatan 10, the brand new property, adjacent to the Norra Bantorget Square, provides a new cultural hub with 796 beds in 233 rooms, a restaurant, bar and exciting social spaces.

In true Generator spirit, Stockholm offers lively communal areas integrating food, art, music, design and performances from local artists.

    Stockholm has served as a platform for a myriad of creative talent, and Generator has drawn on this to inspire the latest opening. DesignAgency, the Toronto-based interior design firm behind the projects, has transformed the building with upscale micro-chic accommodations, local flare, and vibrant spaces that reflect the city’s aesthetics and culture.

    Accommodations include suites, premium private rooms, and shared hostel lodging, all with en-suite bathrooms and the hostel plays host to an events space to accommodate the neighbourhood’s bustling commercial activity as well as host Generator’s events, including the ‘GenTalks’ series.
