Generator Paris is located in the lively 10th Arrondissement, within a stone’s throw of major public transport links to the sights and sounds of the city.


Standing opposite Oscar Niemeyer’s iconic French Communist Headquarters, Generator Paris is just a few steps from Canal Saint-Martin and Buttes-Chaumont Park, and only a 15-minute stroll from Gare du Nord train station. It offers a welcoming mix of cinematic design, rich colours, a sparkling reception and several unique social spaces.

On the hostel's ground floor is Café Fabien with its canteen and conservatory overlooking the garden. A curved staircase leads down to the vaulted ceilings of Le Club, inspired by the Paris Metro. Head up to the 9th floor to discover Khayma Rooftop, with a canopy, bar and views of Sacré-Cœur and Montmartre.

In case of no show of a non-refundable reservation, all nights will be cancelled with penalty unless the property is informed of late arrival by the guest.

Food and Drinks

Head up to the 9th floor of the hostel and find Le Rooftop, a spectacular bar where to catch the sun setting over Montmartre and the Sacré-Cœur while sipping a cocktail. 

Café Fabien, inspired by the brasserie-lined streets of the city serves the finest French delicacies – with views of the urban garden from the conservatory. The perfect place to stop for a barista-style coffee and something to nibble on.
