I stayed for 3 weeks at the generator. Hostel is very nice, each bed had 2 power points and a light which was great. I had a private ensuite in the room but the toilet broke twice and was actually one of the most difficult toilets to flush I have ever encountered. Other bathrooms available in the basement were dirty always. They also had renovations going while I stayed which made noise an issue some days. They had too many children staying who often ran around the bar area screaming which was highly unenjoyable. It had agood bar there but prices went up halfway through my stay. It has a good variety which food on offer was good and typical pub food. I wish they had a kitchen for guests to use, but there were many good food options around and several grocery stores too. They had event search night but I didn't partake in them and security worked the door during the night on weekends and often during the day. You could walk almost anywhere or the tram was a close walk also. Close to some great pubs such as the cobblestone. Generator is more of a party hostel than other places Ive stayed Is a recommend.

Honestly so disappointing. The shower drain clogs—disgusting. Bed outlets have no power. Ridiculously expensive for the price. 360hk per night!? People working there were all rude and seemed unhappy to be there.

This place is a zoo. Lots of noise and the bar downstairs reminded me of a college bar. My primary problem with this place is it is like a maze and if you stay in a dorm your gender’s bathroom may be on another floor which is a pain if you have to go in the middle of the night. The bathrooms were not extremely clean but the bathroom at basement level for the bar/restaurant had standing water on the floor. This place is inexpensive which makes it all tolerable but I’m glad I only stayed here one night.

Generator Hostel Dublin presents a fantastic location, which is undoubtedly its biggest selling point. Situated right in the heart of the city, it's an ideal starting point for anyone looking to explore all that Dublin has to offer. The convenience of having many popular attractions within walking distance is a huge plus for tourists. However, during my stay, I couldn't help but notice that the hostel is in need of some maintenance and upgrades. The facilities, while functional, seemed a bit worn and in need of a refresh. Some areas appeared dated, and a bit of a facelift would certainly enhance the overall ambiance of the place. Despite these maintenance concerns, Generator Hostel Dublin still has its merits, especially if you're on a budget. The location alone makes it a viable choice, and if you can overlook some of the upkeep issues, you'll find a reasonably priced option for your stay in the heart of Dublin.

The facilities are not managed well and they should provide more silent places for guests
