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 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).

    Our first night in Dublin! Our room overlooked the street and had a balcony we could walk on. We loved the view. The staff were friendly and helpful, the hostel said they’d validate our parking but that didn’t work when we tried to get out of the parking garage. Overall, our stay at The Generator was excellent, we’d stay there again!

    My stay at Generator was great. I was a bit nervous because some of the reviews from the last year weren't very good, but it seemed like they were really making an effort to keep the place clean while I was there. I didn't take full advantage of all the perks as I was only there for two nights, but there are a ton of really great conveniences, like organized luggage storage, cheap laundry, and a large shower room (with a hairdryer!) in addition to en suite bathrooms in some of the dorms.

    Very Good

    The experience was good up until 1am on monday morning when I was woken up by a drunk and aggressive Irish man who thought I was in his bed, he was making threats and throwing my stuff around the room. Eventually I got up and changed to a different bed, even though I was in the one that was written down by the staff. The old man (around 65 yrs) then started shouting in his sleep about breaking my neck. I had a 4am check out for a flight otherwise would’ve complained to staff.

    Short walk to hostel from city centre. Bed comfortable however pillow is too thin. Duvet is good. Space good. Bathroom suboptimal with limescale and poor ventilation. They should provide matts in the bathroom as it is a slip risk. Cleanliness I was in all female and they were all tidy so I was all good. Noise from bar is annoying and drunk people a frequent encounter in the lift. Wasn't bad given how expensive Dublin is but also not the best value for money. But good.

    Hostel lacks “hostel” quality and is more like a budget hotel. But it’s clean. Location isn’t great especially considering the spot. But if searching for clean, safe accommodations and not planning to meet people at a hostel, this one works.

    We stayed in a double ensuite. The room was clean and ready for us upon check in. The bar and luggage lockers were both very convenient! The location felt a little off the beaten track although it was still easy to get to. Unfortunately, the staff was not helpful or friendly. They shrugged off any questions we had and acted as if it was inconvenience that we had questions or wanted suggestions. Overall, the hostel was nice but seemed overpriced for the room, amenities and services we received.
