Nice staff (especially the Irish barman), very clean and professionally maintained. NO KITCHEN so all food and drinks need to be bought there. The food is ok-ish value. The whole vibe doesn't lend itself to meeting new people but I managed anyway so its not impossible! IMPORTANT: its on an island that is only accessible to the rest of the... More

Dear Shane H, Many thanks for sharing your experience online after you stay at Generator Venice - We treasure of the guest's comments to offer a better quality of service. We concentrate on providing guests with great food and beverage options so that is why there is no self catering kitchen. The lounge area with our bar is the right... More

Staff was rude, unable to give me suggestions as simple as where to eat. No one working there seemed happy to be working there, actually everyone employed was openly pissed off. The lobby is overly swanky and impersonal while the upstairs is dimly lit and seems abandoned, the hallways full of leftover crap. I would never stay here again. Also... More

Overall really nice stay. Friendly staff, clean facilities, only 15 minutes to Piazza San Marco with the vaporetto. The wifi was working in every part of the hostel and the bar Area offered some nice seating options and the Drinks were good too. Would go there again!

I had a great stay here, and would most definitely stay here again if I ever return to Venice. We were only supposed to stay 1 night, but extended it to two since we loved it so much! The staff was very friendly and helped us with insider tips and getting around Venice. The lobby had a funky, cool atmosphere... More

This hostel is in a beautiful location right on the water overlooking Venice, with easy access to all major sights via two vaporetto lines. Dorm rooms and bathrooms were clean (great showers!) and secure with swipe card access and individual lockers (requiring own lock though). The bar/eating area was nicely designed and a good place to meet people/relax. Do note... More

I stayed at the generator in a 16bed room while I was in Venice. The beds were comfortable, but there are no locks on the lockers so you have to bring your own. The bathrooms were very small but they were clean..ran into problems using them at the same time as others. Also you have to take the boat to... More

Stunning location by the water with a common room filled with beautiful furniture, well designed accommodation (although noisy guests who couldn't close the door quietly spoilt my sleep) Spotlessly clean bathroom but no kitchen! How strange! But in Feb at £14 it was great value for money so in the summer you could just get food from the nearby supermarket... More
