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

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!

    Without a doubt my favourite hostel in Dublin, I've stayed there many times. Great atmosphere with the bar and communal areas. The area around the hostel is up and coming and very close to the centre.

    Great hostel at the heart of Dublin! We booked a 6 bedroom room for the weekend, and we really enjoyed it. It was spacious, had good storage space, an ensuite shower, as well as beds. The check-in was perhaps a bit too slow, but the staff was always helpful with whatever query we had. Great location too - just a 15 min walk to the city centre. Really recommend this hostel!

    Nice hostel with good facilities such as a bar, billiards table, and foosball. If you want a hostel experience, this is not the place, many people stay here for temporary housing rather than to travel. This place also lacked a kitchen and bathrooms were not that clean, but it was acceptable. Staff was helpful and friendly. Overall it was a good experience, but I coulda done better for $70 a night.

    Compared to other hostels in Dublin, this one was much more organised. However, there were quite a few hiccups during my stay there.

    Only stayed for one night, but probably wouldn’t stay again. The staff was really sweet but the room smelled pretty bad and they gave me air freshener that didn’t really help. Bit of a weird vibe and location.

    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.

    Honestly the hostel was fine, until we get to the bathrooms, we were there for four days and not once where they cleaned!! Half the toilets where full and blocked with poop…. And there where hair everywhere on the wet floor! The halls weren’t cleaned either. And it was way overpriced!

    By far the worst experience I've ever had. The bathrooms are extremely dirty and run down (some toilets missed toilet seats, some werent cleaned in days and had feces all over), it was disgusting. People have been complaining about this for WEEKS! Rooms are extremely stuffy and smelly due to poor air circulation. The doors are very noisy. My bed was not cleaned and they made me move in the middle of the night due to double booking and didn't even apologize. No atmosphere either. It sucked.
