Design-led boutique hostel brand Generator Hostels has launched its latest project in Amsterdam.
Generator Amsterdam is located in the up-and-coming eastern side of the city overlooking Oosterpark. This former zoological university building can accommodate 564 guests in 168 twin and quadruple rooms with en-suite bathrooms. There is also a luxury apartment for six people with views of the park and a self-catered kitchen.
Priding itself on building a community spirit, it has flexible and spacious social areas, filled with creative design touches like glass-fronted elevators, a raised café and an outdoor terrace. The designers have turned the former lecture hall into an impressive chill-out lounge and bar, while the old library is now a relaxation and private events room.
The basement and café are now dining destinations and the original boiler room has become a secret late night bar.
This opening marks a series of three new launches from Generator this in 2016, with Rome and Stockholm scheduled to open in the next few months.
