Very nice! Location, ambience and staff Lot next to the piazza san marco (2 vaporetto stops). Recommend to young couples and even family you have a beautiful view of the heart of the city with San Marco almost right across the canal from the hostel

The hostel is one of the bests that I haver ever seen, food is delicious, the accommodation is great, also the internet works really good. It has a beautiful view and it's close to one vaporetto stop, that you need to take to go visit the principal attractions. the woman at the reception was a little bit rude when I... More

The hostel is located on the island of Giudecca (which is not the main one where most touristy places are), but I liked it simply because of that. First, you have a beautiful view of the heart of the city with San Marco almost right across the canal from the hostel, and second, you are not in the middle of... More

Situated on the isle of Giudecca, right across the Zattere Fondamenta, this place just adds up to magical feeling you get when visiting Venice. Couple fo stops from St Marco, which is the heart of a city. Good location overall - Giudecca is very nice and quiet, from there you can get to any part of city. Very stylish, modern... More

As I Spent most of the time roaming around exploring the city, all i wasted was a place to keep my luggage and sleep at night. However Generator turned out to be a great spot considering the price segment. Decent Place, Good food, generally good kind of crowd, wifi

I am happy that this hostel had a room for two nights otherwise I would've been stuck with a horrible hostel. That being said, this hostel has some issues that prevent me from giving it a higher rating. The location actually is not on the main island of Venice, or in other words for you fellow backpackers and travelers, it... More

This hostel has been by far the worst experience I ever seen (and I've been in hostels almost everywhere around the world...)

I stayed at generator hostel in Venice for 3 nights along with about 150 other students at my school. In about 1/3 of the rooms, bedbugs were found. I don't believe the hostel is going to fix the problem any time soon, as other people were appointed to our rooms, as soon as we moved out. A real hassle having... More
