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

    Despite all my friends warnings that I had chosen the wrong island (to be fair, I hadn't checked), the location was perfect - right on the water, and a five minute boat door-to-central. The Aperols were great, the staff were super nice, and the atmosphere was ideal - it was quiet enough during the day I could work (yay WFH travel life) but in the evening all it took was sitting downstairs for ten minutes with a book and suddenly everyone is friends. Big fan of the pool table as well. Lovely stay

    Great place to stay, you have to take the ferry to this hostel which is not too bad. Get a ferry pass right away for the amount of days you say so much more money if you are staying for a few days. Staff super friendly, the common area doesn’t have plugs so you can plug your laptop in if you’re doing work there. The spacing in the room is quite tight, but they are reducing the amount of people inside each room for COVID which was nice to see! I would definitely come back and stay here again!

    I'd stayed at a Freehand before, and expected a similar level of quality in my private room here (for $160). Not sure if it's a Generator thing or an Italy thing, but it wasn't quite the same. While the lobby is nice, with tons of spaces to relax, work, eat, etc., the room was disappointing for the price—two narrow beds and bad wifi. But given the somewhat isolated location of the hostel on Giudecca Island, the cafe has some tasty food at reasonable prices.

    Amazing location, get the 24 hour or 48 water taxi pass. Not much to do on Guidecca but amazing view and easy to get to Venice.

    Nice place to stay but just know you need a ferry to arrive. Great aesthetic, bar, vibe. Shared room was very cramped (barely enough space to open the drawer) and my bed was taken when I arrived 👎🏼 so they moved me to another one. 👍 No Way to dry hands in the bathroom (bring your own towels).

    Very stylish hostel with a nice bar. Keep in mind that it is not located on the main island and ferry tickets are a bit pricy. However, I really liked Guidecca and the view of the main island was great! Due to covid only 8 from 16 beds were occupied. When fully occupied, rooms might a bit too packed/small.

    The hostel location is the best in Venice I guess. It's directly overlooking the lake, in a quiet chill area, not the main island of San Marco or San Polo. However, this is a plus as it's always accessible with the public boats in there. What I didn't like is that the facilities are completely closed during Covid, even the kitchen!! So you can't buy food and store it in the fridge, you can't cook, you can't do anything! you just can sleep! I hope the situation is better after Covid tho!

    Great location - centre of Venice a quick boat ride away. Was fairly quiet when we went. Breakfast not included neither is bag storage. Rooms were good and each bed has a large lockable storage box. Fairly pricey considering nothing extra is included but the staff were helpful and you’re probably paying for the location
