The lobby, including a sitting area, bar, and restaurant, is quite nice! The rooms are very clean. The staff members are hit or miss with respect to being available and friendly (not to say there were not some friendly staff members!). One example: we were interested in having a beer and there was no one behind the bar - we... More

Beautiful facilities. Great staff. The views were stunning, the drinks were inexpensive and food was good. I'd come back to this hostel again when I return to Venice! A bit pricy for transportation, but it's the best place I've stayed in my three visits to Venice.

they put all the money into the luxurious lobby, and try to look very cool. however, the rooms are so-so, there are few showers and the breakfast is poor. (also you can buy a standard muffin for 3 Euros ...)

Admittedly I haven't stayed in a hostel before. And it really didn't disappoint the accommodation is fantastic and I had a view of San Marco, which was beautiful. I think a couple of changes would make the place perfect. Perhaps more variety at breakfast as it's the same everyday. Cereal Yogurt Tinned fruit Orange and pineapple juice Bread rolls Meat... More

Great location, suitable for people who love to stay in Venice for more than 1 night! Although it is not in the central island, it still very convenient by waterbus! The hostel is in an amazing old building, I really love the way they re-created inside as a modern space! I stayed in 12-bed room during the carnival season, I... More

The hostel was really pretty, the staff was nice. But after two days someone decided, that our room wasnt worth cleaning anymore, but since we didnt make too much dirt ourselves it was okei... And sometimes our room smelled bad. But all in all our stay in the generator was great and we liked it there!

Very clean and cool place. It's on Giudecca; a calm island right across from central Venice. Very authentic neighbourhood, but you need to buy a waterbus pass to make it worthwhile (or else it will be very difficult).

Excellent hostel! The bar is great with good food and not so expensive. It is well located, very close to a vaporetto station. The room was well heated but a little bit small. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

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.
