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.

    Great place to stay in Venice. The accomodation was very comfortable. The bar was a nice place to hang out during the day or evening. On Giudecca, it is a little further out but an easy 5 min boat-bus ride to San Marco and gives you amazing views of the rest of Venice. Highly recommend

    Generator is in a fantastic location that has amazing views of Venice. The hostel overall is great for either short or long stays and the staff were terrific helping me out with any questions I had. The rooms are clean, comfy and I had a great sleep the nights I was there. facilities are relatively clean and working fine (showers could be better kept but not a huge issue as they worked fine and water was hot) Worth every penny and would definitely stay again when I revisit Venice

    Location off main islands not an issue, though be aware of reduced number of Vaporettis to Guidecca later in the evening. Stayed in Generator Hostels around Europe before, & always had great experiences so had high expectations. Some issues with the bathrooms here though. Main issue being that most toilet locks weren't working, bathrooms themselves were quite small, and showers not the best as didn't have any space to put clothes down dry while showering. Even adding a shelf would be easy fix.

    Very Good

    location and staff were AMAZING, but the lockers in the rooms were too small to fit most suitcases/backpacks in! they weren’t tall enough so most people had to leave their suitcases out. I was in a 10-bed dorm & our bathroom was pretty clean, but the communal ones had broken shower doors or were just left unclean. There was also 3 toilets on our floor for 30+ people so you had to get the timing perfect! It’s also quite expensive for a cramped 10-bed dorm but I guess you’re paying for the area

    Inconvenient location, poor facilities, and largely unhelpful staff. There were no locks on the toilet doors, and no shower-head on at least one of the showers. NB—it will cost €9.50 to commute into central Venice. However, it is worth mentioning that all of the bare necessities were there—clean beds, drinking water, laundry facilities, &c.

    This is among the worst hostels I have ever stayed in. The facility was kind of strange and dirty, the rooms were cramped, and above all the staff were incompetent and rude, especially the bartender. I would not stay here again. However, to be fair, Venice is insanely touristy and pricey. This may still be your best bet if you are determined to stay on the lagoon itself. The views from the neighborhood were simply magical. Decide if that's worth it to you; otherwise stay on the mainland.

    Location is nice, the outer island is much quite and calmer then the main one and its very easy to get to. Be warned - this is a hotel not a hostel. There is no kitchen and they don't allow food in the rooms, trying to force you to buy their overpriced food in the Cafe. The laundry is expensive and two of the four were broken. The rooms are cramped and filled to the max with beds, making the luggage lockers very hard to reach. It also wasn't the cleanest,there was mold in the bathroom.

    It’s such a pain to get to. Daily travel pass is €25 euro today and you can’t do anything without using water taxi’s to get to the main island which is the biggest pain. Pretty much nothing on the side of the river they are. No bathroom or shower doors locked, my dorm room door wouldn’t lock - notified staff who did nothing but were rude. Also had to pay for just about anything other than sheets where they didn’t even make your bed for you. They did have a nice common area but that’s about it. Didn’t see a
