Hostelworld says:

The recently-opened Generator Hostel Dublin is a 'very stylish hostel' which our reviewers frequently compare favourably to a hotel, with one Hostelworld user saying it's 'like a fine hotel for a college travellers', while another says it feels like 'a nice hotel for the price of a hostel'. This spacious and modern boutique-style hostel is 'comfortable, clean and beautiful' according to our guests. There's an on-site bar and café as well as 'excellent' keycard security.

Property Information:

The Generator Hostel - one of Europe's best loved and most award-winning hostel brands - arrived in Dublin in 2011 and hasn't looked back since!

The Generator is Dublin's newest and most exciting hostel which offers state-of-the-art facilities, quality rooms, a central location, a fun atmosphere and much more - for the right price!

We have tons of free stuff for our guests, including free bed linen, free towels in the single and twin rooms, a walking tour, luggage storage on arrival and departure, lockers in the dorm rooms (remember to bring your own lock!) and Wi-Fi! There's also pay-as-you-go Internet terminals.

There's free events happening every night, with drinks promotions and specials, karaoke, DJs, quizzes, pool competitions, drinking games, madcap monthly theme parties and more. Don't forget our regular movie nights in our in-house cinema room!

We're a 24hr hostel which means there's laundry facilities, reception, a lounge and games room, pool tables, TV and great-value snack and drinks available all day and night.

Our fun and friendly staff are on hand 24hrs to give you advice and recommendations on where to go and to point you in the direction of all of Dublin's hotspots and hidden gems.

We're within short walking distance of some of the city's most popular visitor attractions including the Guinness Storehouse, Dublin Castle, The Wax Museum Plus and Jameson Distillery (so close - its right next door).

For those interested in Dublin's exciting nightlife scene, the famous Temple Bar district is within 10 minutes' walking distance from our hostel, where you will find some of the city's best nightclubs, bars and restaurants.

With handy transport links on your doorstep at the Generator, you're in easy reach of everything that the city and the rest of Ireland has to offer.

    Stayed for three nights in a triple room. Great atmosphere, the staff were friendly. Breakfast was nice. Location was very good, almost in the same building as the Jameson Distillery (turned out to be one of the best tourist attractions we visited in Dublin!) and just a short walk from the Guinness Storehouse. A little more walk to the city centre, but the LUAS (tram) passed by all the time just a few minutes from the hostel. Some very nice restaurants just on the other side of the river.

    Love that there's lockers under the bed. Beds are pretty comfortable, only complaint would be that the pillows are very flat, but that's just getting picky. Love the two outlets and LED light that is on each bed. Only other thing I could complain about is that there's no kitchen.
