Generator Hostels has been accommodating world travellers since 1997 with their one-of-a-kind design-led hotels, but this year they’re launching a new platform — Parallel — that celebrates all things community and creativity.
Parallel aims to focus on stories from the cities in which Generator has hotels (Paris, London, Dublin, Amsterdam — you name it, you can locate a Generator hostel in almost any European city).
So one day you’ll be reading about the grand adventures of an artist in Paris, the next you’ll be checking out the local history and the quirky haunts of Rome. There will also be features on local creatives accompanied by big, bold imagery, and articles on successful people who have done something worth aspiring to.
To celebrate the launch of Parallel, and to kickstart the site with a positive spin, acclaimed photographer Alex De Mora has produced a series of snaps that depict Londoners and their rescue pets, which come in all different sizes, shapes and yup, species!
While the city can be an unwelcoming place at times, De Mora shows the kindness and compassion of a handful of humans who went above and beyond to rescue their pets. From three-legged dogs, to African Pygmy Hedgehogs, we get to see just what Londoners are going home to every night.
If you’re going to be in the London area soon, check out Generator Hostels. The Generator London is housed in a converted police station and located just a short walk from the British Museum and trendy Covent Garden, but that’s the least exciting thing about this hostel (and that says a lot).
Inside Generator London, guests are spoiled with an on-site bar, cafe, travel shop, chill-out areas, and a cinema room. Yeah, there’s really no place like it! Check out the Generator London here for more info and extreme wanderlust.
