HOSTELS: NOT JUST about noisy dorms and other people’s smelly socks, apparently. A new super-hostel is launching in the Smithfield area of Dublin on Thursday with a sleepover for 500 guests and All-Ireland winning footballing brothers Alan and Bernard Brogan providing some of the entertainment.
The Generator Hostel is part of a chain already in place in London, Berlin, Copenhagen and Hamburg. The Brogans, on the other hand, are in definite newbie territory – neither of them have ever DJed before. Said Alan:
I’m no Fat Boy Slim, but I’m really looking forward to having a laugh and sharing our favourite party tunes for the launch.
We’re not sure if the Brogans are actually staying the night so, no, you won’t necessarily be able to claim you slept with both Brogan brothers.
DJ Cici Cavanagh and Bitches With Wolves singer James O’Neill will be providing some musical back-up.
Hipster footwear, as per this promo interview, is optional:
And in case you don’t score an invitation, this is what the hostel will look like inside:
