Stillheten på nattetider, renheten på hotellet og et serviceinnstilt personale
Stilt og rolig, samtidig så nært kulturopplevelser som nasjonalgalleri, kirker, minnelunder, brennerier, gamle puber, og hestemarkedet som vi fikk oppleve sist mandag. En kvalitet å ikke ha ei trafikkert gate rett utenfor inngangsdøra, men et flott og romslig brolagt torg. Vi kunne sagt fra om at TV`n på rommet ikke fungerte, men vi var ikke i Dublin for å se på TV. Kanskje bør teknisk utstyr som TV sjekkes oftere?
Nytt, fint hotell. Rolig beliggenhet, kun 12-15 minutters spasertur ned til sentrum.
Rent, pent og koselig. Hyggelig personale! Litt dyrt, men muligens pga 6 nations kampen mellom irland og wales samme helg vi var der. Litt lite rom, men en skal jo bare ha et sted å sove.
vennlig betjening gammelt, formodentlig mugg, støy
Rommene var små og hadde noen mangler, men var hovedsaklig bra. Personellet var høflige og vennlige og prøvde å hjelpe. Personellet krevde ikke betaling for flere netter enn dem vi hadde overnattet da vi sent tredje dagen ikke orket å vaere der mer og reiste. Vi lå i to rom, rom 20 og 32. Begge rom har et tykt støvlag i lampene over sengene, de bør rengjøres. Rom 20 var svært dårlig isolert, sprekken i døra mot altanen var forsøkt tettet med et teppe!. Vi hørte alt som skjedde i respesjonsområdet hele natten. Det gav oss lite og dårlig søvn. Rommmet bør isoleres mot støy og trekk. Rom 32 var noe bedre, men vi ble plaget av støy fra traffikert gate og fra folk som kom sent og ringte på for å komme inn på hotellet. Det gav oss nok en natt med lite søvn. Sengene var i tillegg for harde for oss. Totalt sett de to dårligste nettene vi har hatt på hotell noen gang.
Based on the price point we got it at, it was a great stay. We stayed in a 6 bed unit which was surprisingly comfortable. The hotel bar was good, and great atmosphere while the Eurocup was on. Overall the place was always clean, lots of staff around which was nice. The demographic was crazy... People of all ages which was fantastic! It couldn't be closer to Jameson. Great bars and restaurants around it as well. It's about a 15 minute walk to temple bar area. 10 minute walk to Guinness. The bar as good as it is, a bit of a tourist trap... It shouldn't be €5-6 for a pint... The rooms were hot as hell, the window barely opened and only at the end of stay did we find out we could request a fan... Not much else to complain about.
Fabulous value for the money. €52 for two people in a spotlessly clean double private room w bathroom. Right in Smithfield steps away from great restaurants, cinema, pubs cafes and live Irish Music. Right above the Jameson Brewery Tasting Rooms. Laundry facilities, on site pub and cafe and luggage storeage. Room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, warm and quiet. Felt very safe also. Nothing. It was all good!
I got upgraded to an all female ensuite room, which was fantastic, bright and big. All the bathrooms in the whole building were clean from what I saw, fantastic bar, friendly staff, loved my stay! Each bed came with a huge lockable storage box, if you didn't have your own lock they were 5 euro at reception. The regular rooms were very small and cramped and windowless.
The hostel was very clean and well kept. Had a bar and cafe which made it much easy to find to find food and drinks. The food was reasonably priced. I don't see why I wouldn't use Generator again whether it was in Dublin or somewhere else.
The staff here is absolutely wonderful and very friendly! You can ask for suggestions on places to go and things see and to do and they give out detailed descriptions on what you should expect to experience at each destination! The Night Staff was equally wonderful! To my surprise the night guards/security we're very friendly and helpful and happy to give good directions to near by places. The bartenders are cheerful, funny and have great suggestions for local restaurants and nightlife activities. The reception team is outstanding! They are warm and welcoming and available 24/7! They can help you with any delemas or concerns may come up during your stay. On my next trip to Dublin I will stay at the generator and the staff has a HUGE part to play in desire to book a room with the generator again! The only things that I can complain about is the fact that the laundry room often has a line waiting because the dryers take too long to dry. Just for one load it can take up to two to three hours before your clothes become dry, but even then they may not be dry and this leaves people will still be waiting to take their turn while their clothespecially sit soaking wet. Also the bar could be open later.
Easy to feel included and apart of something as a solo traveller. The staff and environment in general make the hostel have a home like feel. Convenient plugs and lights with every bed. Good food at breakfast and for lunch/dinner. Close enough to walk to city center, temple bar area etc but far enough that you feel safe because you don't have to deal with drunk strangers, and the loud streets of the city centre. Beds were comfortable but creaked. Every time you turned or moved, the whole bed would creak and move. Also it was very hot at night due to having a very small window in the room.
Good location and friendly staff So so room and breakfast
Location okay, staff were helpful Rooms and general decor needs improving, breakfast a little basic
Location. The staff were very nice and accommodating and let us leave our bags there before check in while we explored Dublin. It was old and poorly kept.
Centrally located, and extremely friendly, helpful, and courteous staff. No hot water in the shower!
