    I stayed at Generator hostel for three nights. It has a nice atmosphere, friendly staff and good facilities in general. In addition, it is very clean and really well located; the city center is only 15 min walking. It would be my option again if I go to Dublin another time.

    The Generator in Dublin was perfect! I felt safe leaving my stuff in the hostel, Wolf was an amazing staff member who made our experience so memorable! The bar was super fun, and the bartenders were amazing. We had a blast. I will most definitely stay in more Generator hostels throughout Europe.

    I was very impressed by the Generator. The building itself was massive and when you walk inside it is beautifully decorated. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. The only thing I wish it had more of were outlets, either in the bathroom or by the mirror to get ready in the morning. Staff were very friendly and the location was great next to the tram.

    It was my first time staying in a hostel, so I didn’t know what to expect. I got there before check in but was able to rent a storage locker, so I could start exploring Dublin. The bar area was a great place to hangout, grab food and play pool and games. Al the staff were great and super helpful. Location is wonderful as it’s a 1-2 minute walk from a tram station. Our en suite bathroom wasn’t the cleanest, but I realize that this isn’t a 5 star hotel. Overall, had a great stay

    PROS: Super kind staff, great bar, excellent location (right by Jameson house) - Everything you'd expect from Generator. CONS: Locker under bed nearly chopped by hand off when it fell on me (the hydraulics would not keep it up), also toilets in men's room were atrociously gross. Showers were a bit better but still sorta gross. - NOT what I'd expect from Generator.

    Staff were friendly especially the guy working at breakfast! The hostel rooms were fairly standard and kept clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were a bit dirty and grimy. The hostel is in a nice area with some shops around but it’s about a 15min walk into the centre where most tourist attractions and shops are found.

    Lydia was the best! Always giving us the best recommendations every night, went above and beyond!! Staff is 100% always helping you with recommendations!its always sunny in Philadelphia was funny on the flight! Great hostel for group of 3. Not a good atmosphere to meet other travellers or If you’re solo. Female bathrooms only on 1st floor which is a little inconvenient. Rooms very spacious and modern with plug ins and lockers! 1km from temple bar, walkable during day and quick cab after the pub!
