ONE NIGHT STAY

Posted Jul 15, 2014
Pros: Facilities are clean and confortable.
Location: Location is OK.
This was my first experience in a hostal and I think my last... place itself was clean but I didn't like the experience of sharing a room with 7 other people. I was unable to reach the hotel since the first night so they cancelled my reservation for the complete week (which at the end was better). Hotel front desk was not helping, they just said call Expedia instead of helping me to book... at the end I just paid for that night and changed hotel... I know a hostal isn't a 5-star place but service is very important for us as foreigners.

Dear Ram, Thanks for taking the time to share your comments. Generator does have a 24 hour cancellation policy which we need to enforce at all times due to the size of the property. If you book through a third party website unfortunately we cannot cancel it ourselves it has to go through the orginal source. If you wish to return perhaps check out our private rooms which can be booked directly through Generators website. Kind regards Maureen Meegan - Operations Manager

Great place to stay!

Never stayed in a hostel before but this was almost like a hotel. Stayed one night in a mixed room and one private. We will be staying again to end our trip...we enjoyed it that much. Highly recommend. Clean and friendly staff. Very easy to navigate city from here.

Location: City centre 5 mins walk from the hostel. The beach is 10 min drive and plenty of nice places to view near by
Had a good experience plenty of nice places and sites to see. Was a very memorable trip. Can't wait to go there again.

An amazing first hostel experience

Posted Jun 29, 2014
Pros: Yeah, everything.
Cons: Cleaning in the bathrooms was (seemingly) by request only. 8 people in one bathroom makes it dirty, regardless of how clean we tried to keep it...
Location: Everything you want to see is within walking distance (max 35 mins)
Exceeded our expectations in almost every way. Really friendly staff, atmosphere that fits young travelers like us perfectly (bar/club in the lobby), and met some really great people to boot. Would definitely recommend the new bike tour. 15 euro, 3 hours, and all the info you'll need to plan the rest of your stay in Dublin. Guide should probably be teaching Irish history instead of doing tours, but oh well! :P If you want a very unique and exciting experience in Dublin, stay here.

Great place to stay

Posted Jun 15, 2014
It's somewhat central location, and being so close to a signposted landmark made it so easy to find (Jameson distillery). The staff were great really friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfy, the food and drinks also served there were great. Will be staying there again!

Nice and clean

Posted Jun 7, 2014
Pros: The hotel was very clean and lively!
Cons: It's no fun to have to gather your things to take a shower on a totally different floor!
Location: There is a supermarket across from the hostel and a tram nearby.
I arrived a little early and had to wait until 2 to check in. I hung around the lobby area. It was great. Free internet, a nice restaurant, pool table, and cozy couches! When I checked into my room, it was nice. I liked the big locker under the bed. There was a sink in the room. The only thing that I didn't like was that the bathroom was on a different floor and the hallways were long and dark!

We had a great stay! The staff there is outstanding and super helpful. Ask for Noemi she will go beyond and above to help you with anything. We wanted to take her with us for the remainder of our europe tour. Great location of hotel

Nice hostel, but lots of rules

Posted May 31, 2014
This hostel is very modern and has tons of room. The beds are comfy and the staff were very friendly with recommendations on what to see and do in Dublin. My friends and I participated in the Generator Bike Tour are really enjoyed that trip with Connor. He took us around all the sights and got us back in time for our plans in the afternoon. Keep in mind this since this is a larger hostel, they have a no-alcohol and no-outside food policy which is enforced in the evening. It was no problem for us, but some other guests minded. Also, it would be nice is there was a washroom for both males and females on each floor, not alternating. Overall, very nice place to stay in Dublin!
