    About this area


    Located in Dublin, Generator Dublin is in the city centre and near a metro station. Guinness Storehouse and Dublin Port are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those in the mood for shopping can visit Grafton Street and Abbey Street. Croke Park and Dublin Zoo are not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the hostel's convenience for public transport: Smithfield Station is just steps away and Four Courts Station is 5 minutes by foot.

      First rate hostel

      Wow! I was really surprised when I walked into The Generator. It's a mega hostel set up like a hotel. Check in was very slick and they provided recommendations based on my interests. The room was clean, comfortable, and there were enough lockers for all guests in the room. Each bunk had a light and two sockets for charging devices. The bar/restaurant/public area was also nice. Lots of sockets for charging, different types of seating in different areas, cool vibe. I would be glad to recommend The Generator to my friends traveling to Dublin.
