    The overall staff, closeness in proximity to the tram, market and other go-to places, and environment of the hostel was great! The only issue I encountered while here was when my bed's power outlets short-circuited and both myself and my top bunkie roommate had no power and we both asked for a repair of this issue and we were promised various times that maintenance would come around and they never did. We were given merely breakfast tokens to compensate for the situation which is appreciated.

    Place is huge! Over very clean place and differently worth the price. Is kind of far from places to eat at night however compared to some of the other hostels

    A relatively great experience, nothing insane though - everything sold is overpriced, breakfast is not included nor are the linens - just a heads up (I read those components were included somewhere on Hostelworld when I was booking), however it’s was also a fantastic stay. Awesome vibe and a popular spot for travellers - they promoted the most amazing free tour that was DEFINITELY WORTH DOING, but even the locals stated that the Generator is pushing more for money than great guest experiences.

    Generator Dublin is one of the best hostels we have stayed in. It is a bit far from out of town, but has great facilities and a really nice bar to hang out in.

    This place is awesome! I am an Aussie girl travelling around and this was my first time in the hostel. It had a great vibe! All though the rooms where a bit stuffy and needed some type of air ventilation, but not overally bad.. there is no kitchen to make your own food and no food is able to be brought into the hostel so it did make my stay expensive. But overall was an amazing place and it was about a 20-25 minute walk to the Temple bar which had a great atmosphere. Would go back again

    The staff, location and atmosphere of the hostel were great, but I found the bathrooms and showers to be not very clean in the 10 person dorm rooms. Great customer service though and helpful to have a 24 hour reception. Would definitely stay here again - great social space for meeting people in the lobby!

    Good location. Friendly staff. Great bar and breakfast area. Good walking tour. Toilet wouldn't flush. Beds a little uncomfortable. Charging port for each bed a huge plus.

    Not what I expected from this Hostel as a solo traveller. Huge place that felt more like a hotel and more families than expected changed the vibe quite a bit! Washrooms weren’t even on the same floor as I stayed so that was a pain. Rooms were fairly clean with comfy beds at least!

    We were impressed with the atmosphere presented in photos of the Generator online. However, when we arrived, we were quite disappointed at the livability of the space. There’s no cooking space or food storage available to customers, or free coffee or refreshments of any kind. The rooms were hot and the communal showers were on another floor from our room. There was one toilet per floor. The bar was nice but if you are looking to have a stay for any reason other than to party, go elsewhere.
