Really great hostel - dorms were well laid out and bathrooms were clean. Downstairs bar area is a great place to sit. Breakfast probably isn't worth paying for as can find cheaper elsewhere. Downside is that the hostel is actually on Guidecca island, so you have to take a short water bus from the main tourist attractions in Venice. The...

Dear Rachel H, Thanks very much for the kind review and for sharing it with fellow travellers. The Generator Venice is fantastically located on the Giudecca Island, and overlooking the Basilica della Salute and St Mark. The hostel is just a 4 minutes ride from the centre, and it is very well services 24/7 by different vaporetto lines. We hope...

I've stayed there during 5 days in January and I absolutely loved it! I used the 14 bed mixed room and all the beds are super new and clean, the bathroom is clean as well... The hostel is not in Venice island, so you have to pay to go to Venice everyday, but that wasn't a problem for me, I...

This place strikes a nice balance between the simplicity of bunk beds & shared bathrooms you would expect from a hostel and the smart elegance you would find in the lobby of a (casual) design hotel. For backpackers and budget travelers, it's nice to stay somewhere that doesn't make you feel destitute. As a solo traveler, it was nice to...

So beautiful , much better than its pictures / what I expected. The view will literally take your breathe away , amazing location. Met some cool people so would recommend for solo travel. Female only dorms are super private and the beds are new and comfy.

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...

The lobby is really nice like all the pictures but the rooms and bathrooms are CRAMPED!

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.

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.
