Generator today unveils a stylish new identity and website as it sets out to transform the hostel experience.
Established in 1995, Generator (http://www.generatorhostels.com) is Europe's fastest growing hostel brand and the new design-led identity will be rolled out by the end of 2013. It will be integral to the look and feel of the new Barcelona site that opens in March 2013, Berlin Mitte scheduled to open in May and the significant upgrade of the Venice hostel that's set to re-open next May.
Vivid and innovative, the new logo, colours and typeface give the website a fresh, young feel that attracts and engages guests. Using inspiring imagery and a youthful tone of voice, Generator is setting the pace as the place to be.

Bold, passionate and full of personality, the brand reflects our contemporary offerings and inspirational portfolio. We see ourselves as the leaders in the European hostel space and this is about telling our story."
He added: "This is the start of a new era for Generator and a revolution for the hostel industry. Our outstanding central city locations boast cutting-edge design and the new look will allow us to better communicate that to our guests. We want travellers to instantly recognise the Generator brand and consider our hostels as the places to stay for a sociable, unique experience in stylish accommodation and at a competitive price."
