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

The hostel is in a great location, only two ferry stops from the heart of Venice (make sure you buy a 24 hour or weekly ferry pass!). The hostel itself is really modern, clean and has a great vibe. It was off season when I was travelling so there wasn't much of an opportunity to meet people in the communal... More

I travelled to Venice by myself and checked into the hostel right away. The staff were amazing. Very helpful and friendly. The barstaff were awesome and made the nights even more fun. Weekend DJ nights were also very fun. A big common room with plenty of place to sit made it easy to meet people. I stayed in a 16... More

LOCATION: First things go first :) ,this hostel is in the Giudecca Island at the Zitelle stop...you are probably wondering: so what about that? Well, it means that you are just 1-2 Vaporetto's stops from Piazza San Marco (let's say the main square in Venice). You might have to wait for 10-15 mins for the Vaporetto, but in 5-10 mins... More

Generator Venice looks like a luxurious palace. The interior is stunning, and the atmosphere is just as great. Walk outside and you are right on the water. Breakfast and rooms were excellent, and staff were approachable and helpful. The location is the only letdown: there are not many restaurants on Zitelle, so you may need to venture across to San...
