Hostel of the Month: Generator Venice

Language Specific Image

A beautiful city deserves a beautiful hostel and that’s exactly what you’ll get with The Generator. The building is a converted grain house on the serene waterfront of Guidecca, and the opulent interiors alone could prove why it won the Best Hostel in Venice award at this year’s Hoscars. Think Venetian mosaic floors, stone fireplaces, and chandeliers clashing with jungle print wallpaper and disco balls. It’s beyond your wildest hostel dreams.
Generator is located just off the main island, and only a 5 minute ferry ride to St Marco Square with boats leaving directly from the hostel. This way you’ll have the chance to swan around Venice, taking in all its glory away from the tourist mania. Yes!
The hostel boasts a drawing room (with velvet armchairs, obv) and an impressive lounge/common area, complete with a bar that hosts live music, DJ club nights and art collabs. If you want help mapping out the hidden treasures and secret wine bars of Venice, just ask the staff at the 24 hour lobby for their invaluable local knowledge. As for the rooms, you can go rustic with a stylish attic room or opt for a shared room with views of the Adriatic Sea – either way, they are both spotless!
Now, let’s talk about Venice. We don’t need to tell you that there are more than just gondolas and Gelato,that it’s submerged in history and culture from the debaucherous renaissance era. There are opera houses from the 1600s still standing and Caranvale, the world’s largest Masquerade ball. Every year the city celebrates it lively theatre scene from 23rd Jan – 9th February by throwing intriguing events across the city such as “The Fifty Shades of Casanova” and “The King’s Banquet”. If you are into modern culture, the bi annual Art Biennale has given birth to a cutting edge contemporary art scene, and The Peggy Guggenheim museum of art is a must.
So if you want an affordable, beautiful base for all this glorious activity, quite frankly Generator is IT.
A few words from their guests:
“The best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. I wish other hostels lived up to this standard, but Generator is by far leaps and bounds above the others. Great interior deco, funky as heck. (Also individual plug points for each bed, always very appreciated)”
“Staying here every time I am coming to Venice”
“This place was niiiiiiice! I was expecting to pay much more for a place this close to the city of Venice. The rooms are clean, modern, and have everything you need, and there was a bar downstairs so you don’t really need to go out anywhere.”
“The best hostel I’ve stayed! Amazing atmosphere, great staff, safe and clean. And also the best mattress and pillow ever! I definitely recommend! I hope to be back one day!”
