Room like a sauna, no heating controls. No AC in a large dorm room? Like seriously! Toilets and showers were a mess. Piss all over floor. Hair and beard trimmings in the sinks, blocking drains. The bar and common area was nice, but quite overpriced....More

This was a nice trendy hostel in the right part of town, the beds were just rather uncomfortable and the whole place could have been cleaner. Still, for the price, there isn’t much room to complain and the staff were very accomodating.More

Location was great, staff was helpful, and the rooms were generally clean and spacious. Typical hostel neighbors and toilet acted up with multiple people using it, but all around great value for the price!

Description
You’ll find Generator Dublin in the heart of Smithfield Square in central Dublin. This newly fashionable area located between the developing museum district and the Four Courts District has plenty to do More and see. Next door you’ll find the Jameson Distillery, one of the most popular attractions in the city. Dublin is a compact city and the best way to explore is on foot, so you don’t miss a thing. You’re a short walk from the infamous Guinness Storehouse with its un-missable 360 degree gravity bar, Temple Bar and the Spire. But while you are here make sure you soak up the atmosphere of the hostel. It’s a destination in its own right. Head to the bar and chill out areas and get yourself a well deserved drink or two and soak up the most eclectic and authentic entertainment for miles around. We have recently added a wide range of specialist craft beers both from local and afar. We’ve also great beds for sleepy heads and of course you’ll be enjoying Dublin life in the most stylish and authentic surroundings. Choose from a great selection of rooms, from Dorms, to Quads, to Private en-suites with innovative mod cons. Fast and free Wi-Fi is all yours too. To get the most out of your stay speak with any member of our team, their city expertise will help you devise an itinerary that will take you to all the hidden treasures this dynamic city has to offer. We’ll see you there soon. Less
