The Generator Hostel - one of Europe's best loved and award-winning hostel brands has arrived in Dublin!

The Generator is Dublin's newest and most exciting hostel which offers state-of-the-art facilities, quality rooms, a central location, a fun atmosphere and much more - for the right price!

We have tons of free stuff for our guests, including free bed linen, free towels in the single and twin rooms, a walking tour, luggage storage on arrival and departure, lockers in the dorm rooms (remember to bring your own lock!) and Wi-Fi! There's also pay-as-you-go Internet terminals.

There's free events happening every night, with drinks promotions and specials, karaoke, DJs, quizzes, pool competitions, drinking games, madcap monthly theme parties and more. Don't forget our regular movie nights in our in-house cinema room!

We're a 24hr hostel which means there's laundry facilities, reception, a lounge and games room, pool tables, TV and great-value snack and drinks available all day and night.

Our fun and friendly staff are on hand 24hrs to give you advice and recommendations on where to go and to point you in the direction of all of Dublin's hotspots and hidden gems.

We're within short walking distance of some of the city's most popular visitor attractions including the Guinness Storehouse, Dublin Castle, The Wax Museum Plus and Jameson Distillery (so close - its right next door).

For those interested in Dublin's exciting nightlife scene, the famous Temple Bar district is within 10 minutes' walking distance from our hostel, where you will find some of the city's best nightclubs, bars and restaurants.

With handy transport links on your doorstep at the Generator, you're in easy reach of everything that the city and the rest of Ireland has to offer.
Prices are per person per night.
