We love this Hostel!

It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

Hostelworld says

Venice is famous for being easy on the eye, and the Generator is the perfect place to stay if you're looking for a great view. Located just off the main island, you'll have the chance to take in Venice in all its glory from across the water (don't worry, the main island is just minutes away). The staff are great, always ready to go the extra mile if you need anything, and according to one past guest 'the interiors are beautiful' so it's easy to forget that you're travelling on a budget.

Property Description

Stay with Generator Venice, a hostel that enjoys the best views of the city from the island of Guidecca across San Marco Square. Only a short boat ride from the crowds of Venice.

It's the perfect destination and a great place to socialize and reflect on your experiences of the day. Head to the bar and chill out areas to get yourself a well deserved drink or two. It's lively, friendly and un-missable.

We've also great beds for sleepy heads and of course you'll be enjoying Venice life in the most authentic surroundings. Choose from a great selection of rooms, from Dorms, to Quads, to Private en-suites with innovative mod cons like a USB port and your own LED light for late night reading.

    Superb

    14 Oct 2018
    This hostel is very high class, probably the best first impression to hostels that I could have had. The atmosphere is very hip and hipster-esque, the staff are very helpful and cheerful, the on-site luggage storage (even after you've checked out) is a big plus, and the view of the city from the hostel is fantastic. The rooms were a bit cramped, but everything is well-kept and clean, feels brand new. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone planning a trip to Venice.

    Fabulous

    Location isn't that great if you want to be on mainland Venice - it costs around 7 euros from Giudecca (which is the small island the hostel is on) to the main area. There are some transport deals you can get from the Venice Unica website, I used a 3-day Rolling Venice deal to travel between Giudecca and the main area, and to the other islands like Murano & Burano. They don't have any self-catering facilities and they don't allow external food in the common areas.

    Security- meh, anyone could walk in. Staff- mostly unhelpful and a little rude. Atmosphere- hostel looks nice and the view of the island is nice, but they have nothing going on to bring people together. Cleanliness- no complaints. Facilities- nothing special, nothing bad. Value- somewhat expensive, but the view is nice. Issue- you have to take transit to the main island (7.50 each way). The hostel had random trips but never advertised anything so we missed out on a lot we wanted to do

    If you're choosing this for the lower price, think again. To get there from the main island you take the water bus, costing 7,50 each way. No kitchen and no outside food allowed meant you had to spend on their breakfasts/sandwiches. However! The rooms were very clean and well organised. The 16 bed dorm was divided up so that it felt like a 4 bed room. Each bed had its own lamp, plug and locker. Basically fine, but not for me.
