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.

    It is a wonderful, clean hostel. I have no complaints other than if you are looking for a hostel to meet other solo travelers the Generator is not really the place. But with that being said you will still have a good pleasant stay and will find nothing to complain about the facility or the staff. You do have to get a boat over from “main” Venice but its super easy to figure out and they run very often. Theres plenty of eating options around the area and the view at sunset is beautiful.

    If you're going to stay at Generator, just make sure you account for the ferry. A 48hr ferry ticket is €30. Make sure you factor that into your budget. This hostel is absolutely fantastic to stay at. Great staff and facilities and I preferred staying here rather than the "main" island. It was great to get away from the crowds and the hostel was superb. Highly recommend using Generator Venice for your stay.

    Everything you want is here, I wouldn't get the breakfast though. It is also worth checking out the island it is on if you want to avoid the crowds.

    Fabulous

    05 Sep 2019
    Altogether a pretty good premium hostel. Good value, excellent location a short ferry away from Venice proper. Only downside was that they hosted a really loud party in the bar until about 2:30am on the Friday I was there. The thumping bass was loud enough on the second floor to stop me sleeping even with earplugs in. Don’t get me wrong, I like a party as much as the next guy, but not when I’ve paid a not inconsiderable amount of money to sleep above one.

    Very Good

    09 Sep 2019
    The biggest downside is the location on the Giudecca island because you have to have the overpriced vaporetto ticket every time you want to get on the main island of Venice and every time you want to get back to your hostel. Other than that it was good. Good facilities, professional staff and it was very clean.
