Property Description

Generator Dublin is a design hotel-hostel located in trendy Smithfield, adjacent to the Jameson Distillery and just a short walk from Temple Bar. Guests can choose from shared dorms to private rooms, offering something for everyone. Complete with 24-hour reception, free wifi, cafe, bar and restaurant, Generator is a fun and affordable choice in Dublin.

Generator is one of the best-loved and most award-winning lifestyle brands in accommodation, and since it opened its doors in Dublin in 2011, it has continued to grow and gain new fans!

With its state-of-the-art facilities, top quality rooms, a central location, fun atmosphere, and friendly staff, Generator offers everything you could be looking for and all 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, lockers in the dorm rooms (remember to bring your own lock!) and Wi-Fi!

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. What more could you possibly be looking for?!

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, Phoenix Park, Trinity Castle and the Jameson Distillery (so close - its right next door).

But make sure to ask at reception for advice on some of the best, lesser-known pubs, too!

    I loved this place! The security was great - no visitors were allowed in past a certain time and it made me feel really safe. All of the workers were so kind and helpful. The bar was really fun and overall it was a great stay 10/10. My only complaint would be that I had to pay to store my luggage until I could check in, usually hostels will hold them for free.

    No complaints, had a good stay here. Felt safe and secure, and it was convenient that each bed had a light, shelf, and electrical outlets (including USB ones). There are also lots of options for socializing as they have a large common area with games like pool, cornhole, jenga, etc.

    It was a great place to stay in Dublin, a bit of a walk from the city center but nothing too bad. Had a great hangout lobby but would definitely suggest ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones !

    Comfy beds, good location and activities most nights. No kitchen (which we knew) but you can’t bring food or drink inside - we had our bags searched when we came home one night (odd since we buy food before a journey to have on the bus) - weren’t even going to the cafe/bad, just to our rooms. They double booked a bed as well - I was woken up because I was in someone else’s bed (I wasn’t, showed the staff my check in details and they seemed surprised) - just made me uncomfortable.

    No kitchen, no public lockers, many broken showers and stalls. Very odd that bathrooms are located every other floor. Loud music in the public space so do not stay here if you need to work. The rooms/bunks were very nice. Possibly my favor of all the hostels I have stayed in.

    Cleanliness was really questionable and we paid a very high price for a one night stay in a family room which just wasn’t worth value for money unfortunately! Wouldn’t recommend even though location was convenient.
