Hostelworld says

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

The Generator Hostel - one of Europe's best loved and most award-winning hostel brands - arrived in Dublin in 2011 and hasn't looked back since!

The Generator is Dublin's newest and most exciting hostel which offers state-of-the-art facilities, quality rooms, a central location, a fun atmosphere and much more - 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.

    Fabulous

    Great Hostel Location with sufficient amenities. The bathrooms were much cleaner than hostels I've stayed at in the past. Overall, a great hostel for the price!

    Fabulous

    13 May 2018
    Hostel lobby was very nice and has its own bar. Staff is great and very helpful with directions. The rooms do not include towels and the sink and shower in our room were extremely slow to drain, occasionally spilling onto the bathroom floor.

    Fabulous

    11 May 2018
    I booked last minute and they hiked the prices up quite a bit, which was annoying almost $70 a night but I had no choice. The bar is really nice fun place to hang out, lots of common areas, the room is pristine clean and nice big private showers . They don’t have a hostel kitchen. A bit far from the main area. It’s more of a hotel than a hostel I feel but very clean and safe.

    Very Good

    15 May 2018
    I stayed here with a friend so we could watch a concert in Phoenix park but I wouldn't recommend drinking in this bar as the prices were more expensive than inside the concert. We arrived home on night and asked The lady on reception to help us order a pizza as we were a little drunk it was more difficult to ring however the woman did not help in any way (15/5/18) she responded with asking us what our problem was (just wanted help ordering food) we didn't know the address.
