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.

    Superb

    This was our first hostel experience and I fear we’re ruined for life! This place was so nice. It blew away all of my expectations of a hostel. We had a view of the lagoon from our private suite. The decor has an upscale rustic vibe. It’s very easy to use the water bus system to get back and forth from the different islands so don’t be concerned about the location - in fact it’s a nice break from the crowds at St Mark’s Piazza.

    Great stay, it’s a shame the ferry to cross the channel is pricy but that’s not there fault. Very flashy and affordable

    This is a great hostel in a great location on a quieter island. The staff is friendly and the beds are very comfortable. The only thing I didn’t like was that you are not allowed to bring in outside food or drinks because they have their own bar/ restaurant there. Also, it costs €2 euros to store your luggage for the day. Otherwise a nice place to stay!

    Overall awesome time! The staff were super friendly and the beds were really comfy. Only complaint would be that the bathroom showers weren’t draining. Otherwise, it might not be as centrally located as some other hostels but I actually liked that because it was less touristy and you could quickly access the main island anyways by ferry. Travelling solo was also no issue because I met lots of people quickly at the bar!

    Generator Venice is a great hostel. Very good value for the money and good location. It is on an island called Giudecca so you have to take the waterbus to go anywhere but they run very frequently. The beds were comfortable and the atmosphere was great. Would recommend to others and I would definitely stay here again.

    Great view, clean and roomy bedrooms. The bathrooms could be definitely better, there is no space where to put your clothes. Everything inside the hostel is kinda expensive (breakfast is sold for 6.50 euro, for the luggage storage there is a fee of 2 euro, a beer can be up to 6 euro etc.) but it's Venice, so get used to it... In general reccomended for the view and the location in general; Giudecca is a quite and nice island!

    Great hostel how with some draw backs e.g. can’t bring your own food in and the issue of having to get the ferry across to the main island every day and evening. Restaurant at hostel was averagely priced so not too bad but general vibe around the hostel was good although outside visitors to the bar in the evening was a little unsettling but was okay! Was a cool vibe and cool feels mug having to get the ferry over to the island. Would recommend!

    Great location can get a ferry to mostly everywhere, staff were really nice they always put ice in my water bottle when I ask to get it filled ! Was free too !!! On hot summer days it's needed. More suitable if you are going traveling with friends but as a solo traveler not the best atmosphere to meet people the rooms were great had own charger and light with bed. The showers were really really clogged with hair and would stand in loads of water. Other than the showers was a great hostel.

    This was more of a hotel rather than a hostel and you had to pay for any additional extras that would have made the stay more enjoyable e.g. towels. The showers in the shared bathrooms had semi-transparent doors so anyone in the bathroom could see into the shower which was so off-putting that I preferred not to shower during my stay and rather use wet wipes. It should also be noted that whilst this hostel is cheaper as it is off of the main island, you have to pay €7.50 one-way for a ferry.
