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.

    Magical location; it’s located on Giudecca so you have to factor in a vaporetto ticket, for me that was €40 for 72 hours; on leaving and returning to the Hostel each day you’re treated to an amazing view of Venice. The vaporetto are typically every 20 mins and takes around 5 mins to get to St Marks square. This is pricer than hostels in other cities, but reasonable for Venice, it’s a great building, and smarter decor than a typical hostel. Staff were fantastic and friendly. Thoroughly recommend

    Extremely well located for a decent price. Beds were comfy, rooms did not feel too crowded. We had a small issue where the people from the room next door were being extremely loud very late at night, and the staff reacted quickly to have them stop. I wished that the showers would have an extra hook to hang the clothes, but otherwise bathroom were very clean.

    Overall was a decent stay. A few things could be adjusted such as age limit in the hostel. We were given a room with a 70 year old woman, who commanded the room and made it very uncomfortable. There were a lot of older people in hostel and which should be grouped together and not with 20 year olds. The cleanliness of bathroom could be improved. Beds were very comfy, with individual plugs and lights along with adequate under the bed storage. Not ideal location for 6am flight

    Beautiful and clean hostel away from the crowds. Ferry stop is a 30 second walk from the hostel, the number 2 will take you anywhere you would want to go on the main island. The hostel felt dead at all times, lifeless. It wasn't a very fun enviorment unfortunately. There was no socializing or mixing of groups. I would say it wasn't a good choice as a solo traveler. The hostel should host some events so as to create a fun atmosphere. If that doesn't matter to you then this hostel is great!

    Overall we had a good time here. The atmosphere was really lacking, but it might have just been the time we went. The rooms were very crowded so there wasn’t really anywhere to fit a bag, but they were clean and the beds were comfy. A big downside was that everyone in our room was solo male travellers well over the age of 50, which made us as young female travellers a little uncomfortable. I know we booked a mixed dorm so that’s partially our fault, but most hostels have age limits.

    We were unfortunately stuck with snoring individuals, but aside from that, the bathrooms were poorly designed and left water everywhere no matter what you did to prevent it. Also lacked soap and any sort of hand drying mechanism. On the upside, the staff was extremely hospitable and the lounge area/bar was awesome!

    Staff and building are nice. The building looked new, the location is somewhat ok. Gotta be honest, with that much room you'd expect bathrooms a little more convenient (referring to the fact that taking a shower with only 2 hooks next to the door is a little challenging). Plus, the rooms should have a dedicated locker space, we had people making such a noise trying to get to their stuff until 2am and starting at 6am. I know most hostels work this way but bring some earplugs if you want to sleep.
