Traveling on a budget: we’ve all done it, now or when we were younger, and it’s a great way to feel connected to the cities and countries we’re visiting.
You could go camping area with your caravan, pick a cheap hotel or crowded hostel, or, nowadays, choose to stay at an airbnb. But there’s another modern option: a hostel that has been designed according to its specific surroundings, with unique influences and exclusive art installation by local artists.
The company offering this fantastic experience is generatorhostels.com, founded by Anwar Mekhayech, a Canadian designer. With already 10 hostels, in 9 of Europe’s most exciting cities – Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, London and Venice, amongst others – generatorhostels is well on their way to capturing a portion of the style-conscious travel market that is now underserved.
For the Mandarina Duck traveler who is adventurous and practical yet values design and innovation, generatorhostel is a perfect fit for spending the night. The website convinces us in the simplest of terms: “Stay with us if you’re sociable, if travel is your way of life, and if you want more than a hostel.”
