The hostel is just two vaporetto stops away from San Marco. The view is beautiful - exactly because it is not situated on one of the central islands! New, modern, with a very decent bar/lounge. The bathroom was quite small and limited, but in low season we could manage.

Dear Gabriela, Many thanks for the kind feedback. The Generator Venice is located on the Giudecca Island, and overlooking the Basilica della Salute and St Mark. The hostel is just a 4 minutes ride from the center, and it is very well services 24/7 by different vaporetto lines. We hope to welcome you back again. Safe travels Generator Venice Team

This hostel is a bit off the beaten track. Definitely purchase the rolling Venice vaperetto pass if your under 29. You have to use the water bus to get to this hostel. This is not on the main island. But it is nice because it is quieter than the main drag. Only thing missing from this hostel is a guest kitchen otherwise perfect. Nice cafe and bar and breakfast can be purchased! Very clean even bathrooms. Had a great stay.

Wifi was good, worked in the rooms. Showers were a little awkward. Rooms were very cramped together. Fun bar area with cheep food. I just wish they had a kitchen. Over all good place to stay.

Fantastic and modern hostel. Main downfall is the location of the hostel which requires lengthy waterbus trips to get anywhere. Overall I had a good experience and would return.

The hostel was great! beautiful interior, good atmosphere. The bartender Daryl was super nice. The only thing I didn't liked is that you have to buy some card to be able to check-in. It's something like 3 euros per night you stay, I thought it was complete bullshit and hidden fees. Otherwise I definately recommend this hostel, I had a great stay.

Not impressed with this hostel. Always out of toilet paper, disgusting bathrooms, and just one sink on a floor of 20 girls. 40 minute bus ride from the train station. Staff was completely uninterested.

Pretty good stay here. Bit of a pain it's not on the main island, but if you are younger than 29 you can get a 72-hour Rolling Venice Card for €24 with unlimited rides on the vaparetto, which was a huge money saver!

Dear guest, Thanks very much for taking the time to review us following your recent stay. The Hostel is on the Giudecca Island which is very well connected with the city center. The Rolling Venice Card is a good option for younger people like you that allows to save money and at the same time to reach all the corners of the city We hope to welcome back to Generator Venice in the near future Kind regards Generator Venice Team

The Hostel is located at a bit of distance from the central station but that is what is good about it. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are big, bar and dining areas are also very cosy.

The hostel was off of the main islands and you had to use the Waterbus to get there, which can get a little pricey, definitely get the Rolling Venice pass if you are under 29. The hostel itself was very new and everything was very clean, and the bar/lounge area was pretty great. Only compliant is that the 8 person I stayed in was very cramped, if the bunks weren't as amazing then it could have been a problem, but it otherwise was a good stay in a beautiful city.

There's no life in this hostel, nothing to really encourage meeting people.

Good hostel with a great bar/common area, nice new facilities. Isn't on the main "island" of Venice so you have to commute each day.

Hostel with good ambience. On largest island of Venice but bit far to the railway station. Fortunately, I have got my bed facing just to the window which left me with great views at night. Would like to stay there again if they reduce the charges. Very clean!!!

Really liked my stay! The light in my bunk didn't work though and the shower door was flimsy.

Very warm, helpful staff. They field questions all day and have to deal with rowdy sorts and still keep their sense of humor. Strong wifi, hot showers, clean sheets, no towels, and excellent value. It is true this is a party hostel, but I was easily able to circumvent the revelry and actually go out and explore Venice instead. Bring earplugs and you'll be fine.

This is a very nice hostel. The staff was all very polite and helpful, and they all had great customer service. The rooms are clean and have a bathroom inside of them, as opposed to a community bathroom like some hostels have. The environment was very laid back and relaxed, and it was easy to just hang out at the bar and meet new people. The hostel itself is a little out of the way in terms of being close to the center of the city, but it's right by a waterbus stop so you can get anywhere.

The catch is that you are stuck on an island and if you intend to see venice you need to catch a ferry which means paying upto 7 euros for a one way trip. So factor that in before booking. There are ferry passes which makes it a little more economical. Apart for location, it's a great hostel. Staff are brilliant.

The staff were very abrasive at times and were often more than a little snooty if you asked for help or needed to find something, like duck tape for example. the facilities and the hostel itself however was very nice and I thought it was neat that the hostel was in some sort of old mill. Also, if you are shy person, I would highly suggest a bathing suit for the shared shower rooms.

Hello, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts with us after your stay in Venice.

I will off course pass your comments to the Front of house department and more focus will be placed on customer needs Best Wishes Keti Camillo – Ops Manager

This place was nice and clean and big and comfortable. It was definitely geared more towards partying 19 year olds during my stay, which would have been fun if I were that age and wanted to party like that...so if that's what you are looking for this place would be perfect for you! If you're a little older you may want to search for something else.
