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.

Pretty nice, kind reception staff. Beds very closed in, could add curtains for privacy. There should be a lock on the bathroom door for privacy also. Bedrooms and bathrooms need more cleaning.
