This Hostel is in a great location in Venice, very assessable from the local ferrys as there are 2 stops right by the hostel. The price is amazing for the location. The rooms are kept very clean. Bathroom facilities are great and the breakfast is very good for only €4! The WiFi is good but not great. There's a big... More

Wonderful property; the pictures do it justice. Kind of inconvenient location, but the 3 day pass for the ferry worked well, and I was happy to be in a quieter location than the city center. Staff are great; beds are nice. Lockers were a bit tight, but I fit my 65 L pack and some other things in just fine... More

This place is amazing. Clean rooms, nice bathrooms, friendly staff! Great wifi, towel rental, air conditioning!!! Beautiful views right outside the front door. Food in the little cafe is also good, albeit a limited menu during the day. The blueberry muffins are great! Lol Definitely would 100% recommend.

making benefit over everything is logical for an hostel however it ould be good not to forget that "clients" are here for holidays and would like to be welcomed normally. The reception woman just yelled at us that she had too much things to do to answer our questions that's not an acceptable situation

As far as hostels are concerned, this was by far more than I expected. It's a beautiful place with friendly service. Everything is clean, new, and modern. Free wifi, right across from the main attractions of Venice, a bar and café. I didn't feel like I was staying at a hostel at all- it felt like a very nice hotel.... More

I stepped off the bus from the airport in Venice and thought to myself "now what." If Venice is your first stop in Italy, and you're staying at the Generator Hostel, be prepared to feel a tad shellshocked. The Generator isn't on the main island, it's on a small island far from the main canal on the island of Giudecca.... 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.

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
