Overall our stay was decent. We stayed in a 4-bed private room. Service from staff members was good. Check-in and out was fine. The room itself was old, but oke. The beds weren't too comfortable but fine. Bathroom with shower was alright. Unfortunately the shower was constantly hot-cold-hot-cold. Not the best hostel experience and not the best Generator Hostel experience. Just average. A good plus was that our private 4 bed room was cleaned every morning and the wifi worked well.

I recently stayed at this wonderful property in Dublin and absolutely loved my time here.
After previous traveling to Benidorm and Amsterdam on separate occasions, the quality of accommodation and value for money at the generator hostel in Dublin just blows these other places out of the water.

The rooms were spacious, consisting of four good size beds especially great for exceedingly tall people. The were clean light and airy, without any grubby sweating aromas I have previously experienced in other accommodations.

There were so many great facilities with the hotel itself. There were so many things around to count, so this place would be ideal for accounts or other such professionals.
There was a lovely corner down stairs with kids dressing up clothes and story books, so I could sit down and have some 'me' time while thinking of home, the staff really went out of their way to find my favourite 'Dora the explorer' book.

There are also great spa facilities, and I opted for the full toblerone ice cream body scrub, it was so nutty and chocolatey and has made my skin feeling amazing. It's so soft and nourished, really giving me that tobelrone glow.

The bar was also great, as I met a really nice lady who was travelling with her daughters, she was amazing and I now miss her dearly. We chatted for hours upon end of all aspects of life.

Really enjoyed my time here and can't wait to go back, highly recommend this place to everybody, it would definitely be an amazing place to stay at for a stag do!!

Thanks

Just great. Everything you needed and more. Great location that’s easy to find and enjoy. Nice atmosphere and people, both guests and staff. Different stuff to do and see at the hostel and town which the staff helped with.

The staff at the front desk was really nice and helped us with everything we needed. Rooms and bathrooms are really clean and the beds were so comfy !
We loved it. Too bad there is no place to chill out appart from the bar which is quite loud and a cine room that we hired for private event. As well no cooking facilities, not even a kettle for tea... I understand that you can eat and drink in the bar however for the £55 per night for a Hostel I would expect to be able to chill out and Cook.
But again the staff was really cool and helpful and the cleanliness was perfect ! Thanks :-)

Was a great hostel, everyone in the room got along really well and we all went out for drinks together most nights. The beds were great with the plugs to charge your phones and a reading light. Great bar downstairs, and is in a great location close to the Jameson distillery and the Guinness store house!
