Staff are THIEVES, not recommended to anyone!”
Got my Fendi sunglasses stolen from top of the table while we were exploring Dublin city center whole day (glasses were left on the table in private room, and the room had been cleaned when we came back). Answer from this place was that "there are no cameras on the hallway in front of 405. We have however checked the access logs into the room and consulted with our housekeeping agency team. Nothing appears suspicious to us." Oh, please! Maybe they never existed, right? Never ever had such experience in ANY hotel OR hostel in the world!

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!!!

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.

A fine hostel”
The hostel is generally fine, good staff, clean corridors, clean hot shower & toilets, and lounge area. However, it lacks a guest kitchen where we can cook our own food. There also appears to be an odd smell of sweaty and damp socks on the 2nd floor and in my room. I'm not sure if it is an unusual occurance during my stay, but it was present for the entire 3days of my stay throughout the day - either when I head out in the morning or when I return in the late afternoon or in the evening.

Good location, cheap, nice room
Generator Hostel is a place you want to be if you're a traveller. The room is clean and the location is close to Smithfield Luas Station. 7 mins to Four Courts and around 18 mins to O' Connell Street. The staff is friendly and there is a mart in front of it which make it easier for anyone to get anything. They also have a bar around the lobby. Nice place to chill and also there is free wifi. I noticed that they are few more Generator hostels at other countries. Might try them soon. And yes, I'll definately come back.

A modern, fun and lively hostel”
Price, Location, Cleanliness
I had a wonderful experience with the Generator Hostel during my stay to visit my Irish buddies. The members of staff were helpful on Wifi connection (no password needed!) and provided me hot water for making my own hot chocolate. Maps for tourist hot spots; bus to airport and other services are available from the Reception too. Don’t bother bringing that huge book of Lonely Planet with you – I left mine at home intentionally! Check-in was fast-and-easy: sign acknowledgement form, get card key (for elevator + room + central light + bathroom; bed lights are usable without card), and off you go. This hostel is conveniently located in Smithfield. As the LUAS (the tram service in Ireland – they are still enhancing its network after launching in 2004) is adjacent to the hostel, going to the City Centre is a breez. Famous Irish landmarks are within reach: The Old Jameson Distillery is just in front of Generator; Guinness Storehouse + Ha’Penny Bridge; the Spire on O’Connell St through LUAS; National Museum of Ireland, National Concert Hall, Trinity College and Grafton St by bus or walking. Day and night views along the Quay are captivating! There is a British power plug for each bed allocated; the specially-designed holder (above your head) for your gadgets while sleeping; fresh white linens provided on your first day; mirror + toilet tissues + hair dryer provided in my 6-bed shared ensuite bathroom. Please bring your shampoo + soap + towels + flip-flops. Water pressure is excellent, good water temperature and the shower head is detachable for children. No fan / air-conditioner in room. No in-house laundry facilities. Breakfasts not inclusive but try the in-house Irish Breakkie! Bring padlocks for huge horizontal lockers below beds. This is a modern, fun, clean and lively hostel at a great price and friendly members of staff; ideal for those who love exploring the city by walking / public transport. Please do not expect 5-Star treatment.
