My experience at Generator Venice was great. Wonderful, friendly employees and a great atmosphere and amazing food. The only downfall was that my comforter had yellow stains on it, but I didn't say anything, I just slept with it anyways. I assumed it was cleaned. The rooms were pretty nice with full sized lockers under the beds that you can...

Stayed here three nights on a trip to Venice. Location is one stop from the main attar cations. Place is hotel-like, not the grimy student hostel I expected. Paid like €12 a night. Absurd really. Stay here if you're going to Venice. A five minute trip across the water and you're surrounded by beauty. Kinda sad to leave!

Work on the Cleanliness! Rooms were dirty: on the floor, on and behind the matrasses we found ugly things. Reclaims were heard, but no refund offered. Concerning our booking of 4 days for 18 pers. there should be given a refund.

I stayed at Generator for 5 days. It was great. The breakfast was very good for only 4 euros. The bed was confortable with a light and a plug for each bed. I stayed in a 16 bed dorm for women and I have no regrets. I recommend Generator hostel. And Venice is wonderful !

Great place to chill out at the end of the day! The staff were friendly and helpful, except a couple of them. The food was good and they had some vegetarian options which was great! The 12 female bed room was extremely cramped, with very little space to change and sort things in your locker that was stored under the...

I'd say that it's worth. The price is acceptable in this expensive city. The G.V hostel located in a different satellite island, so you need water bus to get there (then you must buy water bus ticket even it's not exist on your original plan :))) But easy to find. Well the room was clean, staff very nice, cool music,...

Great for socializing, with restaurant included. Events are organized on weekends !! Close to central part of the city. Rooms could be smaller to reduce noise at night. It would be ideal if hampoo and bidy soap were provided. Otherwise, thumbs up!!

By the canal, this place is just adjacent to one of the ferry stations. Very convenient and just 2 ferry stops away from Saint. Marco' / Doge' castle. Ideal for stay and a very happening place in itself, the hostel is one of the best places to stay in my opinion.

Stayed here during my time in Venice. I've stayed in many hostels but this place is more like a hotel then a hostel. There is a large foyer with pool tables and fire places and music playing all the time but not at a too high a level. Food is served until half ten at night. The rooms are really...

Staying in Giudecca

Neighbourhood 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
