The location wasn't great, but it wasn't awful either. Staff wasn't incredibly helpful albeit they were friendly. Washrooms/toilets were gross. Mouldy, stinky and it was obvious that there wasn't a high priority in keeping them clean. Beds were very comfortable though!More

Having had a very costly long weekend travelling to a wedding in Ireland and breaking our journey home in Dublin, we decide to economise and stay in a hostel rather than a hotel. The Generator seems great as a hostel - very clean, good facilities,...More

All of our private single, twin and double rooms come with towels. You can rent or buy a towel from reception for a small charge. I believe you are even charged less if you rent a towel when you rent your room.
