I have always been a fan of Generator Hostels, especially because of their locations and the fact that they are always well connected. And this hostel is no different. The water bus stop is about a minutes walk away and there are two stops so you can take two different water bus lines. Location wise, you cannot beat this place...

Ventilation/cooling on the third floor would be appreciated, there were some "AC" units but they didn't work and opening the window wasn't enough for a cross breeze. There also weren't enough bathrooms and there weren't even that many people there but they were always occupied, also it was too confusing to tell the difference between mens and womens restrooms because...

Our room was excellent, it had a lovely view and a great bed set up. Was the same as the experience I've had with Generator previously. Everything was clean and the hostel has a great lounge/bar/restaurant area on the ground floor. It has a great location close to St Marco's Square. The food is good here also and its nice...

We stayed for 2 nights at the hostel, and its location is perfect. We arrived by train, don't be fooled by the €7.50 vaporetti ticket with the a picture of a suitcase, just buy a 24 or 48h ticket straight away, you can still take your bags with you, and you will use this ticket to get around.

This was a little pricey (~40 euros for an all-girls dorm), but the location made it worth every cent. The hostel is just steps from the lagoon and just across from San Marco. The staff was extremely helpful in navigating the water bus timetables so I didn't miss my very early flight.

I always enjoy going to a Generator Hostel because of their bunk beds. They are solid and comfortable. The staff was nice and the room was clean.

It was a nice place to stay at. A bit pricey, but I guess all of Venice is like that. Be sure to buy the 24 hr ferry/water taxi ticket when you board the first ferry to get to the hostel. Per trip cost is quite expensive and will set you back if you take more than 3 trips a...

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.

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.
