Nice hostel

We had a family room since we were 2 adults and 2 kids. So we had 2 bunk beds. But don't expect any towels or soap. It's close to The Old Jameson Distillery. For little more, we should have stayed in a hotel. Try Belvedere hotel. We stayed thereon our way back and loved it .

Great family stay

We were 2 adults and 2 children staying in a family room. The hostel is clean, comfortable and well-run. We would recommend this and would stay here again when in Dublin.

Efficient Manager

this hostel is in a location very near the city centre and right beside public transport. the private room is very sparsely furnished indeed but the public seating areas , that is foyer and bar, are comfortable.The beds are very comfortable too.The security is good .There was an error in my payment but the problem was solved after my stay, as swiftly as possible , by Manager Lukas, in a very polite manner.He is to be highly commended.

The place is really nice in general the bathroom in the room needs to be clean every day when you share with 6 people... The location is great and all type of transportations and restaurants are around.

Dublin Visit

I enjoyed the Generator Hostel Dublin and would recommend it to others. Great atmosphere and lots of young travelers. An in house bar open after hours and a coffee shop in house for the morning. Perfect location!

Great place to stay!

This place is located perfectly in the heart of Dublin. Easy access to everything from the Hop On, Hop Off bus to the Jameson Distillery and tram nearby. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The only thing that didn't work well was the key card, but that was fixed quickly and such a minor thing it didn't really matter after this great trip.

Great time!

3 of us booked a room with 3 beds for 2 nights, and when we checked in they gave us a room with 2 bunk beds since that's all they had. We definitely didn't mind the extra bed! Love the first floor layout, the bar has a nice ambience, lots of comfy couches to sit on and do your own thing or socialize. It's right by the Luas too which is awesome. The room was very clean, the sheets and pillows and comforters seemed to be new and fresh. We had a great time. Just think checkout time should be 12 instead of 10.
