We stayed here during our visit to Venice. The private double room was beautiful en very clean. Our room had a beautiful view. The staff is friendly and helpful. Although the hostel is on a different island than all the sights, it's easy to get there. The atmosphere in the whole hostel is great. I would definitely recommend it.

My boyfriend and I stopped here for 2 nights as part of an interrailing trip. The hostel itself is fantastic. The design is great, the staff are friendly and helpful, facilities great, the bar is reasonably priced and there's a variety of activities for people to do for free. The beds have plugs and lights so you dont need to... More

The dude working behind the counter was the rudest person i've ever encountered at a hostel. He also took so long to sort out simple bookings, at least 5 times as long as it would in any other hostel. I didn't stay here, I just went to see if they had a free room, and get information. la persona chi... More

I stayed at the Generator hostel for two nights and had a wonderful stay. The beds are clean, the sheets are fluffy and the service is pretty great. Dorms are somehow quiet despite having 16 people in some. All the beds have convenient outlets, reading lamps (though a few were out) and under bed lockers. The bathrooms are clean though... More

The generator has a great vibe and may have been nice to spend a few nights in. As it was I stayed there one night only and found it to be okay but a little cramped in terms of room and bathroom space. On the other hand it was really clean and very secure. Good bar and location. However it... More

Travelling as a pair, our main requirement in a hostel was that it had a friendly atmosphere where we could meet fellow travellers. Unfortunately, Generator struggled to provide this - the bar was rarely busy, and guests tended to keep themselves to themselves. It felt a lot more like a hotel than a hostel. Having said this, the facilities and... More

Great, clean renovated hostel with lockers under your bed. Issue is the paucity of shower and toilets which were small, wet, nowhere to put your stuff, and the automatic lights kept turning off, plunging you into darkness. The internet is slow and dodgy and the staff are variable - the bar staff had a pile of attitude and would make... More

A bit difficult to get to but with that all the negative is said about this hostel. Very nice bar with good prices for Venice (breakfast packages are really cheap), View from the window on the canal. Cleverly divided dorms with very comfortable beds. After our hostel in Rome, this place was really amazing. Friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere.... More

The hostel is very beautiful downstairs and the rooms are very cleverly designed, but I couldn't help but think it was designed by a man! This is because the rooms were great. We stayed in a big dorm but it felt smaller because some of the beds had sort of walls on one side, so the room felt like it... More

Dear Wonderlan thanks very much for taking the time to write a well detailed review. Every single part of your comment has been noted. The hostel has re-opened just over one year ago after a full renovation, and we acknowledge that we have to intervene in some of the bathrooms, so that the facilities will look at their best all...

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
