The Hostel is very easy to find. You get the nearest water taxi to Zitelle and walk down 100m left after exiting at Zitelle. The Generator is clearly marked with a distinctive green colour on the doors. The reception is on the right upon entering. There's a lift that was convenient for myself to take my luggage up, I had... More

I've seen my share of hostels both good and bad and this is the best of them all. Due to the design staying in a 16 bed room felt like staying in a small shared room. Reception staff 24/7 and beautiful bar, staff gave me a map with tips and the design is that of a at least 4* HOTEL.... More

Generator was the place I chose to stay in Venice after I saw the outrageous prices some "Locandas" and "Osterias" practice inside the city centre. Despite being located in Giudecca, making it mandatory to spend (at least) 2 vaporetto trips per day, it's worth the detour. If you're about to stay in a dorm, it will be much cheaper than... More

I just wanted to say that there are no hidden costs for this hostel as suggested on the reviews below. The address of this hostel is clearly displayed, it is up to you as the guest to work out that it isn't on the same island as San Marco - which is a good thing. The island of Giudecca, where... More

Stayed in generator for one night on 29th August. As given in the instructions and by common sense, I understood that I will be traveling a lot by vaperatto and bought the daily card. It's a great bargain if you count your journeys at the end of the day. Easily reached the hostel on the vaperatto. The bar, common area... More

Just arrived at the hostel after a 40 min boat trip from the train station growing increasingly confused about the location of this hostel. Walking in, it is a truly beautiful hostel. However when I enquired about getting to town, I was informed that taking the same shuttle boat was the only option. This boat is 7€ one way or... More

Wouldn't stay here again. There is a lack of privacy in the bathrooms, too many people in each room (feels cramped) and the image seems to be more of a concern than the product. I expected more considering the reputation of Generator as a whole.

Rooms reasonably well presented, lobby and bar well designed, pricey for a hostel, but then again this is Venice. View over the water was great. Staff reasonably friendly. We stayed in a private room. Location is fairly central as long as you time your boat trips appropriately. Bar is respectable, breakfast fulfils the usual bread-spreads-and-cereal requirements. Bar food however if... More

This would be a wonderful hostel if they would install locks on the doors to their toilets and showers. You could ebbing there doing your business, and all of the sudden another person walks in because they have no idea you are in there because there is no lock on the door! I would give this hostel a 5 if... More

We stayed here during our visit to Venice. The private double room was beautiful en very clean. Our room had a beautiful view. The staff is friendly and helpful. Although the hostel is on a different island than all the sights, it's easy to get there. The atmosphere in the whole hostel is great. I would definitely recommend it.
