Generator Hostel Dublin, Dublin, Ireland

24th May 2016

Very nice and clean facilities though tt was vey confusing negotiating hallways. The bed rates, food and drink prices were rather expensive. Unfortunatly there are no self--catering possibilities. Still I enjoyed the Generator vey much. Sadly many of the cheaper hostels in Dublin are dumps. Since I come to Dublin each year I probably will stay here again.

I stay here each year and enjoy it. Someday perhaps the wooden beds will give way to metal ones under which one can store some luggage since we could use the space. Location ios great and quiet.

I have stayed here annually for several years and enjoy it very much. The refurbished public facilties were a nice surprise (new stone floors and walls. new fixtures in the showers, new toilets, new sinks). I liked the rearrangement in the breakfast hall. Maybe in the future the tired couches in the lounge area will be replaced with some comfortable lounge chairs. An elevator would be great but, alas, lifts are very expensive to capitalize and maintain. Will I stay here again? You bet!

Cramped space. Single bed sheet but no cover for the duvets - not hygienic. No public space to lounge or converse. Searched in vain for a chair anywhere on which to sit. Facilties such as these cry out for regulation to protect the public. The most expensive bed during my entire tour of Italy with the least amenities.

Spacious rooms and good functional shower and toilet facilities. Nice continental breakfast. Reasonable prices. Great public spaces for eating and games. Decent public bus service but beware they stop running in the early evening. The walk to the hostel from the train station was a bit trcky in the darkness.

The building is perfect for a hostel. Rooms were tidy and sufficient space. large lockers. Great shower and toilet facilities. Super breakfast for € 4, even pancakes were available. Evening meal was not particularly appetizing. Not many restaurants in the area of the hostel. Very convenient to the RR station Campo di marte which saved a trip to the main station Santa Maria Novella. Enjoyed my stay here.

What a great hostel and super personel! Spacious rooms and newly refurbished. A very nice breakfast and attractively laid out. Quiet neighborhood. Just several yards from a bus stop on the free historical bus route which runs every 20 minutes and transports people to almost all important sites. It is clear that the owner and staff take great pride in their hostel.

Has been a great hostel since it was built. Sadly, on the day before my departure the comfortable chairs and table in the common room were all removed to be replaced by picnic tables thus destroying the ambience of the nicest lounge room among. the association's hostels in London. So sad!

Have stayed here many times and always enjoyed it. However, little things count but they never seem to get repaired and this is an ongoing problem over the years. E. g. Persistent lack of hot water in the men's showers on the 2nd floor, non-functioning lockers often with missing parts, broken and missing hooks throught the building. The carpets in the hallways and stairwells. The list of annoyances goes on and the message emerges that the hostel does not care about hostellers.

The facilities were in a state of disrepair. Broken furniture and broken facilities. The floors of both bathrooms were puddled due to shower activity. The showers need more than cheap one Euro curtains. If the owners invested some money in the facilities the place could be a charmer. Way too expensive for what looks like a rat hole. These kind of places cry our for municipal regulation.

What a great hostel. Good location. I felt like I was in a 4 star hotel although it was a shared dorm. Spacious rooms. The bathroom facilities were excellent especially the showers - good doors so there were no puddles on the floor like many hostels. The roof garden was really nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The sole drawback were the bunk beds in the room. The lower bunks have an upholstered board surrounding the mattress which was painful to climb over. Still this place is a gem.

Typically there is not a chair or table in the room nor is there any type of shelf near one's bed in which to place eyeglasses, phone's, clocks, meds, etc which one needs to access during the night. Due to an Infrastructure problem I had to be relocated to a sister hostel. The staff could not have been nicer about the situation and indeed, had a backup plan for such an eventuality. Congrats to the personnel!

So many interesting people stay in this hostel. The price is very reasonablle. Place is very clean until some guests get sloppy. I've been to Killarney many times and wouldn't stay anywhere else.The train and bus stations are directly across the street and its only a two minute walk to the center of town andf good "craic".

This is my favorite hostel in London but it is so damned expensive as are the other HI hostels in this great city. What gives with the pricing? Having said that London Central has introduced some benefits for HI members which are much appreciated. So I guess I will be back. The alternatives are overstuffed independent hostels.

As a member of HI I have never stayed anywhere else in Dublin because I have been so very fond of this hostel for several years. It came as a great disappointment when it appeared that independent travellers were not permitted to book the night of September 12th due to the fact that tour operators were allowed to block and hoard all the rooms. It is a slap in the face to Independent travelers and loyal members.

Also dangerous that no staff is present during the night hours.What if there was an emergency - fire, accident etc?. Lovely staff. Building is historical and has a charm to it.

In many respects this is a fine hostel - nice facilities, nice public rooms, nice continental breakfast, great staff, wonderful location, very clean place. One major drawback and it is a major one: dorm rooms are too small. 104 Square feet (9.69 Square meters for six people is inhuman. Though the weather outside was cool, inside it was unbearable with all the body heat and breathing.

The owners appear to be opportunists who provide the absolute minimum in regard to facilities. The two plate hotplate in the kitchen did not function properly so that I could not cook my food. The pillows were shambles. To have to pay extra for sheets was a new gimmick I had not encountered before. Great staff though although they must be secretly and quietly embarased by the place.

It was a bit far to the tram lines especially when hauling luggage or a backpack. Also it was unnerving to discover that no personell was on duty during the night. What if there was a fire or smoke?

I enjoy my stay here each year. It is quite reasonably priced and this year the fresh baked Irish Soda Bread and Scones were a nice treat at the included breakfast. Staff members were very nice and helpful. It is a quick walk to O'Connell Street and has convenient bus service almost at the front door. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

I have stayed here several times although it is too pricey on Fridays and Saturdays as is the wireless. If so many places like the British Museum and McDonalds, etc can provide free WIFI why not HI?

The hostel is well run and reasonably priced. I had a devil of a time trying to figure out how the shower faucet functioned. It might be helpful to post an illustration on the wall. A lovely garden is attached. So glad I came here.

This is a good hostel and I have stayed here each year for the past ten years. While it is an older building which is typically expensive and difficult to maintain my hat goes off to the management team who do a great job despite the rough use and abuse by some hostellers.

This is a great hostel. Unfortunately the free WI-FI has been withdrawn in favor of a very expensive pay as you go (one pound for twenty minutes) whether one uses his own laptop or the hostel's computers. Weekend rates are too high. Other than these big disappointments it is a great place to stay.

A great hostel in every respect since the building was constructed for this purpose. The electrical plug and shelf located at each bed is a nice touch. Like all the London hostels this one is a bit pricey and without breakfast. I also resented the steep increase for Friday and Saturday night stays which is becoming commonplace.

The windows were filthy but this appears to be the result of design flaws which makes maintenance of the windows difficult. It was a great hostel since the building was constructed for this purpose. A very friendly and helpful staff even though I arrived early before the rooms were made up. Rooms were quite adequate with spacious common rooms for TV, eating, etc.

This hostel is terribly overpriced given the condition of the facility which is very unkempt. Carpets were filthy. Other hostels in Edinburgh are much cheaper and far better. The staff could not have been nicer.

What a charming hostel! Spacious and clean. Helpful staff. A bit of a bus ride but still walkable from the city center if you miss the last bus of the evening. Good bargain for the price. It helps when the roommates are considerate as was my good fortune. Made a couple of friends among them which is the great part about hostelling.

Considering the age of the building the facility is well maintained. Sadly, some hostellers make a mess for somebody else to clean up. A good bargain for the price. Super staff at the desk and in the kitchen!

The ventilation in the rooms is very problematic and unhealthy. The air is stale and sour at any moment. Perhaps the staff could open the windows each day for several minutes. Also I resented the price increases for Friday and Saturday nights during my seven day stay. Otherwise, my visits to St. Pancras have been quite pleasant.

The ongoing renovations to the facliity are appreciated. Perhaps, a new locker system will be next in the program. Also something must be done about the snoring. Snorers should be required to sleep together or to depart the room - even in the middel of the night!

Have enjoyed my stays at St. Paul's. Great continental breakfast. Snoring remains a problem as there was more than one sleepless night for me and others in the room. Deliicate as the matter is the situation must be addressed. Snorers should not be permitted to impose themeselves on others.

This was a great place to stay, especially in a city like Munich where hotel rooms are expensive. Nice clean facilities. Some street noise at night but that's unavoidable in any center city location. Facility has been renovated recently and dorm rooms were spacious. Bring ear plugs. Well located.
