we were there in the winter season which was the off season. During summer and st Patrick's day time the atmosphere would probably be a lot livelier than when we were there. Great facilities and easy to reach location.

A really great hostel, my friend and I felt like we were in a hotel with just a few more beds per room. A good shower, comfy beds lively bar area and just a short walk into town. Would stay here again.

Really cool place with a cool vibe and great value for money. Easy for transport into the city and airport and the common area is really cool. No kitchen tho so you can't cook and save that way and sometimes it was a little too big so it's harder to connect with others staying at the hostel. Loved it tho and they had some great night actives like the rugby and free salsa classes :) I'd defiantly go back 😀

Not sure why breakfast wasn't included in my night stay... After all it was just bread and cereals. Oh well. Fine hostel for a one night stay

I stayed in a private twin room with ensuite facilities. The room was very good value! Clean, spacious, comfy beds and strong hots shower. The only thing I've missed was a reading light. Bar drinks en food were good, the staff was nice and friendly and my overall feeling is very positive. I will definitely book a Generator hostel when going to another city (and of course when coming back to Dublin!).

Really cool, modern set up with the bar, cafe, pool tables, computers and everything in the lobby. Staff were friendly enough, not always incredibly helpful, but they said they were new, so in a bit of time I think they'll become more knowledgable about the area. Only one bathroom per room, which can cause some chaos, especially since there aren't any communal bathrooms. Overall, for the low season, it was a good experience, and helped make the city of Dublin a great place to visit!

Great overall! My biggest complaint is that I requested my own room-- got it-- but it turned out to have two bunk beds rather than a larger bed which was part of the reason I got it. I didn't want to sleep in a twin bunk!

The Generator was very clean and the staff were helpful. It has a good bar and cafe too. The Location is a short walk to most things. The one BIG thing going against this hostel is that there is no kitchen. I have stayed in hostel's with no kitchen before and they don't have space for them. But at the Generator there is space, so therefore they should have a kitchen. Also some friends and I got told we couldn't eat a pizza that we gotten out and took back to share as the hostel made pizza's.

Very clean and confortable bedroom. But the staff isn't really friendly and I heard the music of the bar's hostel until midnight... .

The location is a little far out but same building as the Jameson Distillery! They didn't clean our bathroom the whole time we were there though. The storage bins are great because they are so big! The bar and food was fantastic

The place excited you as you walk in. There's a bar with eats, there's great decor, and the staff was really friendly. I have no complaints whatsoever. As for location, temple bar is a bit of a trek, but Jameson and Guinness as well as pubs and restaurants are all an easy walk away. The price is a touch high for Dublin, but you do get quite a lot for the price. I recommend it and would like to return/stay longer.
