This hostel was very impressive. It's very worth the price but that was before considering the mandatory water ferry to get to the hostel. The water ferry was 26€ for three days so it adds up if you're on a tight budget. It's right on the water of the Guidecca island and there is a nice downstairs bar and kitchen.... More

Having stayed in a Generator hostel before, the choice was clear I would stay in this one in Venice as well seeing as there are hardly any other hostels. The location, though it's not on the main island is really easy to get to. From nearly all the rooms you have a stunning view of the city. For single travellers... More

The hostel is situated on Guidecca Island just across from the main island of Venice, giving beautiful views and somewhere to escape from the hustle and bustle of Venice. we were in a 16 bed dorm but you hardly noticed it, each bed has a private partial screen near your head to offer some privacy. The decor, facilities and cleanliness... More

I went here on my own for a weekendtrip to Venice. The hostel has a very central location, with the San Marco square only one or two boat stops away, The hostel itself is awesome, with an awesome living room-ish bar where me and the people I met in the hostel chilled until 6 AM, while the lovely bartender made...

I booked the Generator Venice Hostel in the first moment because of the price... Considering all options in Venice this was the best and I saw also good reviews. I can say that the staff is good and the rooms are very cleaning. Even in my room that was more than 10 girls the bathroom was cleaned everyday. For me... More

In Venice, I learned, good value accommodation is hard to come by. This hostel is very good because it is stylishly designed, has big common areas, has a beautiful view out the front door, and is new (and therefore pretty clean). I stayed in an 8-person dorm that was pretty full. My only gripe is that people tended to hang... More

great hostel, quite small compared to London's generator. But big enough for Venice. Views from our bedroom were fairly spectacular. Common area (bar/cafe/chillout) were all joined into one, but still good. Only downfall (minor) unfortunately kitchen wasn't open all day and wi-fi tended to cut out every now and again. other than that great hostel, easy to get to Venice's... More

This is a great place for students and backpackers. Its clean, the beds are comfortable and the place has got a lot of personality. We shared a room with a loud sleeper which affected our sleep quality quite abit but as with all hostel stays, our luck had more to do with it. My only problem was the lack of... More

The generator hostel is a nice clean place to stay in Venice. While is rather expensive the beds are comfortable and the common areas are great. The bathrooms were clean and I never had a problem getting a shower when I needed one. The only downside is that you have to buy a full vapparetto pass which will set you... More

Everything was clean and tidy. The people at reception were really helpful and I had no problem communicating with them in English. There's a luggage room you can stash your stuff in if you arrive before check-in. It's not very well secured, but the front desk will check your valuables into a safe for free. The hostel is right next... More

Generator VeniceSo you fancy a date with a suave Venetian? well you’ve come to the right place. I’ll make you feel right at home in this floating city of bridges and canals. I open my doors in June to the great and the good, so make sure you navigate your way here soon my little friend. I’m about to show hostels in Venice what a Renaissance really is. See you on my little Island of Giudecca, close enough to see it all happen, far enough to avoid the crowds. Just the way I like it. I am Generator hostel in Venice and I am much, much, much more than a hostel. ... more   less
