Cheap, awesome environment & good place to meet up with fellow travelers! The bar is nice, big & drinks are reasonably priced. You also need to get the water taxi to this island, which is a good experience in itself! Just be sure to bring earplugs, since the bar is open late, music plays loudly & the hostel guests can...

The hostel is a little out of the way. You will have to take a ferry from the main tourist area which can be a bit confusing and a pain to wait for at the end of long day of touring, but we somewhat preferred being out of the bustle. The main communal areas are comfortable, fun and lively. The... More

Great location & great vibes. Rooms very clean. Staff at reception very helpful with giving advice on transport etc. Accessible location only 2 stops on boat to main hub Palazzo Ducale. Service a bit slow at the bar, apart from that no complaints.

The building has great atmosphere, the bar staff are fantastic, and the meals from the cafe and restaurant are fairly decent and well priced as well (considering Venice is extremely expensive). I stayed in a 7 person dorm, which was quite small and a bit crowded, but it had a view out over the canal which was amazing, and it... More

Generator Paris was so so so much better. But Generator Venice is good enough. The rooms are so crowded. You can divide them maybe. And a little bit more light and chic products in the corridors. ........ I should extend this review to make it 200 characters. Is it done? Oh god! Yeah :)

Cool atmosphere, met some fun and exciting people. The bar and lounge had a latin dance night when I was there so that was original and I loved it. The breakfast at the hotel was a bit steep for a backpackers hostel and the rooms were very squished.

We were staying elsewhere on Giudecca and stumbled upon this place when out for an evening walk. It was Latin night (Friday) and honestly it was the most enjoyable night of our venetian experience. Everyone was dancing, there was a great atmosphere and if you were near the dance floor an experienced dancer could take you up for a dance!... More

The location of this hostel is excellent, only steps away from Zitelle Vaporetto station on Guidecca island. 2 stops from St Mark's square. They offer breakfast buffet for 4.5€. Though there are cafés and restaurants close by and a supermarket can be found at Redentore stop. However, the pizza and Ceasar salad at the hostel was quite disappointing. The female... More

On the island Giudecca and is perfectly located with a view of San Marco. One stop away from San Marco. 72 hour vaporetto ticket is recommended, depends on your stay. Buy it at the station when you arrive. The hostel itself is very nice, quite modern and clean. The rooms were basic, but had all you needed, lockers, bed light,... More

At first I was concerned that the location of the hostel on La Giudecca island would be problematic in terms of transport, but it turned out to be absolutely perfect. It is a beautiful quiet island away from all the tourists and only one stop to San Marco on the vaporetto. Vaporetto travel can be expensive but we found that... 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.
