Overall very good hostel. Bigger dorms tend to get a bit noisy when people start to come in and out at night. But thats usual and most guests try to tolerate orhers. Tend to get a bit cold even in summer but air con can be turned off. I asked for a blanket but none was offered. Great lounge and... More

The hostel was clean. Showers were separate across the hall with 2 stalls ans 2 showers for womens. Location was hard not being on the mainland and being on Guidecca, the island just south. Taking a boat ride to and from the land was a bit frustrating since they stop ferries at a certain time. Our beds were clean but... More

Although on Giudecca (a different island from the rest of Venice which proved a bit troublesome when getting home at 2am!) the hostel is fun, contemporary, 'shabby chic'-style with plenty of communal space, all-important Wifi, cheap breakfast (4 euros!) and friendly staff. I had a great stay and great sleep!

This hostel pleasantly surprised us by being clean and cold. The mixed dorms have comfortable beds (sheets are provided) but there are no cooking facilities and the bathroom is crowded. Good location in the city. The staff was very friendly. I would recommend!

The location in Giudecca first made me hesitate, but after seeing the hostel I forgot all the hesitations. But budget travelers and real backpackers can have a second thought; one way vaporetto is 7 euros, which is quite expensive when thinking you need to have it at least 2 times a day to reach the hostel. I bought a card... More

The positive: It's a spacious place, nicely designed and pretty clean. The negative: The staff was bored and not very helpful just like the others mentioned. They didn't offer any information and appeared irritated when asked questions. Considering the relatively high price for a hostel, it was shameful to be asked to pay extra for a map (0.50) and a...

I enjoyed staying at Generator Venice - the atmosphere was relaxed, the music was wonderful and the sofa setting allowed people to chat and text at their leisure. I would highly recommend staying at this location due to its surroundings and great decorations. However, the service was considered one of the worse - yes, it may be a hostel with... More

This hostel is right on the waterfront of the grand canal which is beautiful especially in the evenings. It is just a few seconds walk to a Vaporetto stop from which you can get nearly everywhere (buy a 48hr ticket etc as each trip is 7.50euros). There are cheap restaurants and shops on this Island and the hostel has a... More

Location is outstanding. Close to everything via vaporetto (water taxi) but Guidecca is away from the hustle and bustle of the touristy spots. Nice to walk / run along the Guidecca canal waterfront in the mornings (if that's your thing). The hostel itself looks spectacular. No kitchen facilities available (a pain - even a fridge and microwave / kettle would... More

Staying in Giudecca

Neighborhood Profile
Giudecca
Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the crowds. Symbolically, six metal teeth represent Venice’s six sestieri (districts); the seventh, Guidecca, points away from the others – part of Dorsoduro, but separated by the Giudecca Canal. Giudecca evolved from a center of shipyards and factories to a quiet residential area with a sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic harmonious Redentore church stands as thanks for delivering Venice from the plague, hosting an annual heartfelt festival.
