PROS: Clean Friendly Good value for money Good for those who are looking for a nice place to stay on a weekend trip to Venice. Great snacks that are reasonably priced. CONS:... More

Wonderful place to stay in Venice. Not on the main land of Venice so to see what's actually interesting, you have to take the ferry. Not a big deal though. Very mldern, beautiful bar and common area, clean, comfortable and cosy beds. Reasonable prices in the bar and restaurant, pretty nice food and 24 hours cafe. The view right outside... More

Just had a really good stay at the generator hostel in Venice. Stayed 2 nights in a 7 bed shared dorm. The hostel is modern and clean which is a nice chance from some hostels out there! The onsite bar is cool and trendy and the food served is fairly priced. It was my first time in Venice and working... More

Knowing nothing about Venice and having never stayed in a hostel, I chose the Generator Venice location due to its mostly positive reviews and the decent price. I slept in one of their 16 person rooms at $35 euros a night. The good: if you are younger than thirty and single, you are more likely to enjoy staying at this... More

Dear Audiovox Thank very much for the very extensive feedback. It’s a pity that your experience with us was not of your standards and mostly you have not enjoyed the atmosphere. Generator Venice has reopened 1 year ago with the vision of offering more than just a bed. A place where travellers and young professionals can socialize, work, be inspired... More

The dorms are very small and the privacy of the showers is questionable as there's no locks on the doors and you can basically see through the shower doors... The bar area is very big and cool looking, but IMO it has no atmosphere and lots of larger groups (mainly from the US) coming together makes socializing harder. The location... More

Normally, I prefer something cheaper. But after staying in Venice a few nights, I realized this really was the best option. So many hostels aren't on Venice at all, they're on the mainland which is still considered the Venice area. Generator Venice is actually on one of the islands in Venice, and had a great view of the city. It's... More

After traveling around Europe for awhile this is the best hostel I've come across. Worth the money. Modern, clean. Great bathrooms and wifi really does work everywhere. Great bar, nice staff. Loved my stay here, a bit hot in the rooms ( 8 bed room) otherwise 10/10.

Only to stops on the vaporatto to St Marks! I stayed in a female only 14 bed dorm. They packed those beds in there! They were surprisingly comfortable beds though, and they had little privacy walls which was nice. I was lucky enough to get a bed next to the window and the view was amazing!

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

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
