Daniel from South Africa
Solo traveler
1 Person in 6-Bed Dormitory with Shared Bathroom - Mixed
Stayed 4 nights in June 2017
Above average”
A bit far from the center of the action and nightlife. Room didn't have good ventilation. It was more like a hotel than a hostel to be honest. Not enough communal activities, and limited mingling between guests. Also not good that there isn't a kitchen - especially since Dublin is quite an expensive city. The hostel seems to get by due to its name - the Generator, but it lacks the authentic backpacking feeling. The staff seemed very good, apart from the large woman that appeared to dump my underwear in the rubbish bin right after I left the shower cubicle, while I was still brushing my teeth at the sink. Also would be nice to have a few hooks for clothing in the shower cubicles, or a place to put your shampoo (apart from on the floor).

unusual design and great location”
Quirky. Lobby design is eye catching. Wifi at lobby area is very strong but can hardly access it in the room Very conveniently located in close proximity to the city centre and yet far away enough from the hum drum. However, there's no cooking facility unlike other hostels. There's an inhouse restaurant though... If you drive, there's a convenient parking area within 3-5 minutes' walk from the hostel and as customer of the hostel you can get €6 off ie pay €14 instead of €20 for overnight parking. Just hv your parking ticket valudated at the reception

Great Place Right in the Mix”
Place was dead center in the Bustling Temple Bar area. A little bit of noise was heard from outside, but it was expected when you're literally on the doorstep of the center of the action. 10/10, Recommend!!!

Chi from Hong Kong
Solo traveler
1 Person in 6-Bed Dormitory with Shared Bathroom - Mixed

Pretty Good”
Generally, the hostel is good quite because of the cheap price and the good location (near the city centre and with supermarkets nearby). The only drawback is the wall between the toilet and the room is poorly soundproof so every time someone went to the toilet to take shower / flush the toilet, it was sooo loud and noisy

Breakfast not included”
The only hostel during my travels (21days) that excluded breakfast. Had bad experience on the day of departure when a male staff was not able to assist to print out my boarding pass and kept insisting that a word version was sent even though it was clear in my mail sent item that PDF version was indeed sent at least 3 times. The same male staff further rudely interjected my conversation with his colleague when I was asking for a late check out (after I wasted time to head over to town to get my boarding pass printed). This request was rejected at the outset without hearing my explanation that I received an email saying that a late check out could be requested.

DISAPPOINTING”
One of the receptionists were rude. Housekeeping was also rude. I do not recommend this place. There are a lot of good hotels and hostels in dublin and this place ain't one of them!
