Great location. Exceptional staff. Economical.
Very noisy drunken neighbors at 2am. Walls very thin.
Well from the minute I stepped into the hostel I was welcomed with smiles and was greeted with politeness, the team was fantastic and really helpful and caring, I couldn’t think of anyway that the place could be improved
Nothing it was great
Absolute kip. It's just a money making hostel. A glorified pub. If you're a student on a budget don't go to the generator hostel. Security everywhere it's not safe. Party crowd. In my 2 weeks stay there was a fight and the guarda were called out. Breakfast is very expensive. If you're on a budget don't go near the generator hostel.
Nice clean hostel.Good facilitys.
That the locks on the mens toilets were mostly broken on the second floor.Was still a sign up there for advents xmas celebrations.Was put on the 5th floor were was 2 homeless people in the same room.Wash basin in it 2 small.Showed on tv downstairs leinster rugby playing when there was a big Manchester derby on.
Nice facility, manageable location but for a particular type of travel
The facilities are modern and relatively clean. Rooms are well maintained and mattresses are pretty comfortable. The bar area is nice and live music is a plus. Building and rooms are also secure. Swipe cards are required to go anywhere and there’s security at the door.
Upon arrival, the staff was more concerned with being cool than with being courteous. Morning staff was much better. What rubbed me the wrong way about this place is that they fail to provide any kind of secure storage for even the smallest of items. There are lock boxes under the beds, but require you bring your own padlock or pay a ridiculous amount of money to use the luggage storage in the basement. Plan ahead or snuggle your valuables. Also, no outside food is allowed. Strange for a hostel. The reason given is that plenty of food is available on site for purchase. Most things on the menu were expensive for a backpacker. The restaurants and supermarket across the way are the best options. Also, the provided shower gel dispenser is always empty and make sure you double check the toilet paper before you sit down. This place clearly has its eye on being trendy to attract the young, party crowd. It’s nothing similar to what backpackers are used to from every other hostel on the planet and fails to provide the community experience and chance to meet new people that solo travelers look for. Considering the price isn’t even on the lower end, there are better places in Dublin.
