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

Complete with 24-hour reception, free wifi, cafe, bar and views of the Grand Canal, Generator is a fun and affordable choice in Venice. View House Rules

    Beautiful accommodations with an amazing view and friendly staff. A bit difficult to get to late at night with the boats but it’s a very short ride across the canal.

    Great spot only a short water taxi away from the main islands , I was there for Halloween and the party was amazing I was not a big fan of the bathrooms for the mixed dorms, they are small and the showers are not vey private, but otherwise it’s a nice spot and I’d still recommend it :)

    Hostel was nice enough, no kitchen so a bit of a pain, but they have options to buy food and there's a bar. The staff were lovely. It is on an island so when you get there you need to buy a ferry ticket which was pretty expensive (20 for one day, 30 for 2, 40 for 3 etc) would have been useful to know that beforehand

    Great hostel! I would have wished for a bigger bed (I am 6,4; it barely fits) and a hairdryer.

    Generator in Venice was cool. The bar and common area were nice, and my room ended up being very spacious, since it was at half-capacity because of COVID. The staff was always helpful and there were a few other travelers willing to chat here. But the main drawback has to be the location. The hostel isn’t located on the main island, so you have wait for a 10 minute ferry every time you want to leave. It doesn’t sound that long, but it made each day tiring since going back and forth felt tedious.

    Unfortunately you can't store you're bags for free, if you arrive early or leave later than check out. They charge extra...for everything! The location is very good, but you need to be aware that you have to take the boat to get to the main part of Venice, which is expensive! The door to my room didn't close properly and although we asked and there was another bed free, my friend and I were assigned different rooms. The atmosphere in the hostel is great tho...nice bar and common room.

    Nice café with vegan options. Very close to vaparetto stop. Only half occupation of dorm due for covid safety. Very comfortable beds. Nice hot shower. Little space in room to move/ too small of space for 10 beds. Extra charge for towel. Not much socialisation in common area during my stay. Overpriced considering that you have to add vaparetto pass and that you can’t self cater cause there is no communal kitchen.

    I wish this hostel spent as much on marketing as they do on the facilities. Half the lights in our room were out, they don't give you a bath mat and the shower leaks so the bathroom is covered in water. Breakfast is a disappointing croissant (no buffet as marketed and advertised around the hostel) and there is no kitchen for guests to use. Not very social; I'd recommend giving guests a discount on drinks to incentivize people to come socialize in the common area.
