Considering the average hotel price in Venice, this place is a great deal! You can get there only by ferry, but it's worth the travel: the view is awsome from there! Rooms are good and the general environment is really pretty. The bar is also good, they often have dj set on weekends. Sometimes it's the only lively place in... More

I have stayed in many hostels during my travels around Europe and this has been my favorite one so far!! The location is great, just 2 short ferry stops away from the main island. The hostel itself is very young and trendy. Very clean. I stayed in a room of 16 which I was a little hesitant about at first,... More

Adored staying at the Generator Venice. The room was nice. Choose the room with a water view. Beautiful. Great atmosphere to hang out, and grab a drink. The boats work like a metro. Figuring it out may be difficult at first, but after the first or second time, you can easily get it down.

My stay was about 20 euros per night. The bar area in the main lobby is a great place to hang out and the food/drinks were very good. Also, the view from the hostel outside is beautiful (it looks straight onto St. Marks Square and you can see Santa Maria's Basilica. Also about a 1 minute walk from the ferry... More

It was a lovely stay, I slept there for two nights and it was really good. If you are travelling alone is a great opportunity to meet new people because of the really nice pub they have there. I massively recommend it. After traveling around tuscany for 20 days that was the best cost-benefit I found.

The bathroom was under construction, it was very uncomfortable take a shower with local persons working around, I was in a room of 16 people and it had only one restroom and bathroom for all, so very bad service, they should not assign any room with those conditions. The hostel is one island that is not in the main, so... More

We stayed during the Easter break of the semester. It is located in a great place, though we need to pay the money for the vaporetto, you get a chance to get to the other side of venice and it worth it. Nice building, quite clean, good shower, box able to rock with key under the bed, and bar down... 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.
