First I have to say that I wasn't confident to book there. Its big hostel. But I was surprised with this hostel. Room (16 beds) was clean and quiet. I would not had liked to be the bed in front of the door... The design is amazing and the american breakfest looked good (4€). Staff was a bit busy so... More

This hostel was very clean and well-maintained but kind of hard to get to (you had to take a vaparetto from the St. Mark). But we had a beautiful view from our room and I got a great night's sleep even though I was staying in a 14-person dorm. The bar is a great place to meet people too. This... More

I just stayed for 4 nights at Generator Venice last week. Here's what I think about it: OKAY - several vaporetto lines connect the train station to the hostel so it's easy to access - the view is really good : you are only a vaporetto stop away from St Mark and you have a beautiful view of the Doge's...

I've never stayed at a hostel for - and was with a group on a trip and the accommodations were included and so I neither paid for it - nor did I choose it. But - I was incredibly surprised. The quality of the interior was really nice, contemporary, stylish and clean. I stayed in a room that slept 10.... More

This is a very clean, well run hostel. It is definitely for the young with lots going on in the bar area, though there were some older guests as well. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We stayed in an 16 person dorm but it was much quieter than we expected. The room was very spacious, each bed had... More

It was very late when I arrived the hostel. I felt the energy of it instantly. Staff at the front desk was very friendly. The bar downstairs was excellent. I could sit back in front of the hostel and felt relaxing. Room was new and clean. Although it was noisy downstairs, I heard nothing when I was sleeping. Another great... More

I was the organizer of a group of 15+ university students who stayed for five nights at the Generator in late May 2015. I would probably stay there again, but I would ask for a few changes beforehand. I booked our accommodation about nine months ago and communicated with a groups booking manager. We asked for two dorm rooms for... More

I stayed here 2 nights in a 14 bed female dorm. It was my first solo trip. Firstly the hostel is easy to find, yes it's on Giudecca but that makes it easier than getting lost scrambling through windy streets in Venice's main island. You can see the building from the vaperetto stop. If you're flying in to Marco Polo... More

Stayed here for three nights and I like it! Wifi and cleanliness all good! Didn't like that you needed to pay for a map but otherwise it's fine - it's very clean! Also not right in the middle of the center but still easy to get to the main tourist attractions literally only takes 10-15 mins to get to the... 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.
