Loved the environment, location and staff. First time in a hostel and it was a very good experience. I recommend it to anyone that wants a good place to stay in Venice for a short period of time. Very nice

If useless staff, gross toilets, broke tourists slash great music and cool decor are your holiday vibe, this is for you. Yes the the prices are excellent for the lagoon area but there is much wrong with this place. The staff are under age, under trained and utterly stupefied, kids buy bottles of wine and loiter directly outside the hotel... More

Toilets were clean, wifi was decent! i had a good time at the hostel, and their ham for breakfast is really yummy. Only thing that happened was that my light on bed 9 was spoilt, and I had no light, making it difficult to pack and unpack. The room can be quite dim from time to time.

I didn't expect much but you cannot expect a lot for a price like that. I stayed in room 101 with 14 friends so we had one room for us alone but I think when you travel with only a few other people or alone you should be prepared to wake up a lot in the middle of the night.... More

All Generator hostels are great with cleanliness and this was no exception. The rooms and toilets were very clean. Met lots of cool people and it's really easy to find. I'd recommend buying a Rolling Venice ticket if staying here as well, its a cheaper option when catching the Vaparetto all the time. The only downside was the food in... More

Great location and beautiful hostel. The staff were very rude and accused my friend of not paying for her towel when she did and two staff members ganged up on her, it was rude and uncalled for. The atmopshere is ok but not much going on. The wifi is pretty slow and dust from the beams fall on your in... More

I stayed in numerous hostels and never felt so uncomfortable. There is no privacy in the showers, frosted glass and that is it. Had two guys walk in while in the bathroom. Paid for a 7 person dorm and we got a 16 bed, very noisy which is why we wanted a 7. We were given free breakfast which we... More

Venice is a very touristic and intense place. Because the island of Guidecca is not part of the San Marco island but a few minutes away, you can enjoy a quiet part of (my beloved) Venice. The hostel is very stylish and modern decorated and you feel like home in a minute. You can chill in front of the hostel... More

This was easily the greatest hostel we stayed at in our three weeks in Europe. The room was great, location was great and the restaurant and bar were as well.

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.
