The hostel is in a good location, though the ferry prices to get there make it a more expensive option. The downstairs area of the hostel is great and the open areas upstairs but the bathrooms and bedrooms are way too small.

Greatest pleasure to arrive at calm guidecca after busy Venice. Location the best thing, also the simple basic elegance of the twin room. I could do with much less entertainment devices and music in the lounge though.

The hostel is nice, there's a lot of people during the summer and they have a big common area there so you can easily meet new people if you're a solo traveler. The hostel is on the Giudecca island so you have to pay for a water boat (20 EUR 1 day pass, I think there might be a one-way... More

The lobby is really nice like all the pictures but the rooms and bathrooms are CRAMPED! There is 16 beds in my room with 3 feet between each bed (at the most) and one set of bathrooms for the entire floor to share with two toilets, two showers, one sink, and one mirror. I just don't see how they think... More

This hostel is on Guidecca Island opposite Venice so a vaporetto is needed to get there which costs €7. Don't let it put you off though because it is easy. The hostel is in an old warehouse and the decor matches, the lounge area is large and could easily be in a hotel. Outside looks out over Venice which is... More

I stayed here while travelling through Italy. The hostel was worth every euro, very modern and clean with a very young vibe. The lobby downstairs is actually a bar and they serve cheap food and drinks. Amazing location as it is just 2 Vaporetto stops away from Piazza San Marco (main bit), and you get GREAT views from the water... More

It's pretty big for Venice. It has an awesome location, not far from everything. Really easy to find from the main station. Breakfast is over priced and average. The whole place is clean tidy modern. Dorms are cramped and small and if you're on the third floor you have to carry your suitcase up the last flight of stairs as... More

We checked in only to realize that my friend and I were not in the same room, or floor, even though we had booked the beds together. The front desk person told us to go up to one of our rooms and wait and hope the 20 other people that were still planning to arrive that night, would not show... More

Being a Generator, this hostel is obviously super swanky - the lobby/bar/restaurant area is great and pretty lively at all times. It's a big hostel, so not a very home-y vibe. The receptionists weren't the friendliest bunch and my 10-person room was REALLY tight (no room for luggage - lockers are good though). Be warned - catching the Vaporetto boat... 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.

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.
