Dear Guest, Thanks for your wonderful review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and hope you will visit again. Kind regards Keti Camillo Ops Manager Generator Venice

Generator is always a safe bet for hostels. The location can be a bit of a hassle, but you've got to buy the boat pass anyway to get around the city. Clean, comfortable, great amenities, nice staff. Breakfast sucks, don't waste 4€ on it.

Solid hostel. Clean rooms, excellent bathrooms and staff. What makes it awesome is bar lounge area downstairs. great for socializing and grabbing a drink. Breakfast isn't free but let cheap and really good. One downside to this hostel is you have to take boat to the island. It wasn't problem for me I bought the 36 hour pass which saved me some money and the island the hostel is on is actually quite cute and has cheap restaurants and the boat only takes five minutes so not a problem.

Is a very nice place, very clean and tidy, with amazing view of Venice. But they could update the directions to reach the hostel adding the vaporetto stop: Zitelle.

It's a big hostel. 8 bed room was tiny - super cramped. Lockers were big enough for bags - bring your own lock and hope yours isn't broken like mine was (couldn't lock my stuff since the latch was broken). WiFi worked perfectly in room. Quite far from the train station (45 minute water bus ride) but only two stops away from St Mark's square across the river. Waterbusses run all night from St. Mark's square to the hostel's stop (although after 11pm-ish the frequency is once every 30-60 minutes)

Great hostel located on a different island to the main tourist attractions. You do have to use the waterbus which is an experience in itself but does provide great views of San Marco's from the sea. It's only about ten minutes away by regular waterbus from San Marco too so it's quite convenient. We stayed in a 16 bed room but with partitions so it allowed privacy and the beds were also equipped with individual lights and plugs.

Great beds, nice staff, the only thing is they told us we had to make a Hostelling International card to stay there (which would be charged), but we had already booked months earlier, and this was never a condition.

Atmospheres good, staff very friendly and helpfull, e.g. printing out ryanair boarding passes :).. its not a problem, that the Generator is situated at Giudecca, as you should get the 12/24/46 hours- vaporetto- pass anyways to be flexible. the water buses go pretty regularly. downsides: the shower in the mixed 8 dorm was see-through and the bathroom door not lockable. but there are additional men/ women separated showers in the hallway, although these were constantly fooded ..

I would highly recommend staying here! It has everything, the staff are so friendly and helpful, the beds were really comfortable, the food was nice, the wifi was an excellent connection! Only slight negative was that it was on a different island to the main one, and you have to pay €7 for a single on the boat/bus. Or you can pay €20 for a day ticket, £30 for 2 days.

It wasn't on the main island which means you have to pay each time you want to go to the main island. Huge hostel and had a good bar/lounge to meet people. Rooms were clean but I didn't like that the shower doors were kind of see through in the bathrooms that people share. Wifi was good.

I really enjoyed my stay except for when I misplaced my breakfast ticket the staff responded rudely and impatiently.

It was good for me, but I hope you take care of your efficiency for task. When I just wanted to borrow the hair dryer, I waited for 25 minutes because there was only one person in the reception desk. ( Actually, I failed to borrow the hair dryer because there is no left hair dryer.) Anyway, I had a great time in Venice ^_^
