The Generator is a great place! The reception, bar and common areas are really nice and are great for meeting and hang out with new people! All the place is very clean, all the staff crew were very kind in every moment and the location is very good even though it isnt located in the main island of venice. I... More

Lovely clean hostel. I'd never visited a hostel before so was a little wary of how it would be but there was nothing to worry about. Cheapest coffee in the whole of Venice too - just over a euro for a cappuccino! We were only there for one night though, although it was clean, the lack of privacy (particularly in... More

The hostel is in a perfect location and you can go easy by boot to the island.The price is amazing for Venice.You can have breakfast and dinner in the hostel if you like and it is half price as on Venice.

The hostel is a little far from the train station (about 40min ferry ride). However, it's only less than 10min to San Marco. The hostel is 2min walk to the ferry station and the ferry runs all night long (24hrs) which is very convenient. Once I entered the hostel, my first impression was, it's way too hip to be a... More

Our stay was great until we all got bed bugs. One young lady had over 20 bites up and down her legs. Everyone in our room had it. Ruined Venice, probably never coming to Venice again, thanks but no thanks Generator.

The Ostello Venezia by Generator is a slick, stylish spot on the island of Giudecca, primed to attract young hipsters. Overall, it's a great hostel: lots of space to relax and socialize in the retro-chic lobby, a full bar with reasonable prices, very cheap restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and serviceable dorm-style rooms. Some of the logistical details make... More

Generator venice is a great hostel! Excellent accommodations for what you pay. The location is fantastic, as it is only a 5 minute waterbus ride to piazza San Marco. I recommend getting a travel pass as it is quite expensive to pay for each journey. My friend and I felt very safe here and I would highly recommend these accommodations... More

Although the interior of this place was amazing, there seemed to be add on costs for everything! I had to pay more than originally stayed for not being a HI member, and then was not allowed to eat my own food in the hostel, even though I am vegan and their menu did not cater to me. Other than that,... More

I stayed here for 2 nights 3 days. I had a great time. I checked in very late but had no problems. The food and drinks were good. Staff were friendly and outgoing. Great vibe. The hostel is located at the Zitelle stop. Which means it is only 10-15 minutes away from Piazza San Marco, which is the main piazza... More
