They're for design lovers, too. Generator is a company that focuses on creating mega affordable, one-of-a-kind hostels.

All bunks have a privacy screen. If you're traveling in a group of 4, you can reserve your own room for the same 15-euro-per-bed price. If you need some time to yourself, you can also book private rooms which range from 60 euros (~$73 for a twin room) to 100 euros (~$113 for a sky suite).

As far as amenities go, the hostel offers all the basics.

Free Wi-Fi, 24 hour check-in, a café, a bar, and laundry are all available, in addition to locked storage in the shared rooms. For non-EU travelers, there are handy USB sockets, so you can charge your phone without an international adapter.

One thing to note: despite the city's weed-friendly laws, smoking is not permitted in the hostel.

Each room has amazing wallpaper and lots of natural light.
