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.

    Really great hostel. Located on the island of giudecca a short water taxi ride from the main city. Hostel was really clean and accomodating. Great staff.

    Good place to stay overnight, pretty quiet at the moment with coronavirus. One thing - it costs €6-ish each way to get a ferry from the mainland to where the hostel is - the island that the hostel is on is pretty chill/too quiet + only 5 mins from the main part of Venice

    Superb

    I'm was very happy with my stay at Generator Venice. The atmosphere is very nice, staff was super helpful and kind, and the beds are comfortable. Highlights: - Chest under every bunk bed to store and LOCK your things. Very practical if you travel with important stuff such as laptops and cameras. - View from the terrace just outside the hostel is breathtaking. - Air conditioning in the rooms (a MUST in Venice during August) Downsides: - Located outside the main Venice island (vaporetto needed)

    The staff are wonderful! The location is fair and what it lacks in convenience it makes up for in the view! The atmosphere is great but the toilet and shower areas need to be cleaned more regularly. I'd happily stay again :)

    Fabulous

    28 Aug 2020
    Many positives - The location is wonderful, with a brilliant panoramic view of the city. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and comfortable, with good air conditioning in the summer heat. Some negatives - The staff are helpful, but are not very welcoming. I also feel that with the quality of the hostel there is a trade off with atmosphere. It may just be the time of year / circumstances, but the common area felt like a hotel lobby rather than a hostel.

    Very Good

    19 Aug 2020
    The Hostel is located off the main Island, which we personally loved. It was a lot quieter and you got to soak in the spectacular view of Venice. Staff was really friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and the beds were rcomfortable. Problem is there just aren’t enough bathrooms. Due to the pandemic the hostel wasn’t close to being fully booked (3 people in 16 bed dorm) yet we struggled to Find a free shower in the morning. Other than that, great hostel!

    Hostel is okay. Not on the main islands so you have to get the boat to see anything. Some of the locals came into the bar one night, a bit drunk, causing some trouble. There was only one guy on the bar/reception to deal with it.

    People were ignoring their assigned beds, and corona measures were not enforced by staff. It looks nice, but that’s all it is. A facade
