Right now, they have locations in eight European cities — Paris, Copenhagen, London, Venice, Berlin, Barcelona, Hamburg, and Dublin — and they recently opened a beautiful new one in Amsterdam by Oosterpark.

Generator Amsterdam is full of fun, whimsical details like this pizza bike mural.

They can also sip cocktails in the incredible lecture-hall-turned-bar.

The building was previously occupied by the University of Amsterdam's science department and some of the spaces, like this classroom and the library, were kept intact.

When guests are ready to explore, they can borrow one of these sleek bikes from the front desk.

But, best of all: rates start at a shockingly reasonable 15 euros (or $17) a night for a shared room.

Each shared room accommodates 4 people, with an ensuite bathroom.

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).
