Great hostel good atmosphere great stag highly recommended! Perfect location in Venice just off the main island. Met alot of good people. Only fault I could find was the showers, they was always cold had to let them run for a long while to get them warm at best! All in all though would highly recommend it!!!

We had to do jungle gym maneuvers around and over each other because once you pull out the locker under your bed, there's no space to walk past it. Rmb to bring your own lock for the locker. And a light in my dorm did not work so half of the dorm was in constant darkness or semi-darkness. Your towel...

I loved staying at this hostel, amazing location and atmosphere. Great staff, bedroom and bathrooms were clean. I stayed for just one night and I would definitely recommend. Price was kinda expensive for what I'm used to pay but it's Venice so everything is expensive.

- Zitelle is literally one stop away from the main square. Location is fantastic, away from the busy tourists but close to the centre. - Shared a mixed dorm of 16 with a friend and the rooms were a good size, clean, functional.

I've stayed in a lot of hostels, and this one was certainly the most luxurious. Less dorm and more shared living. Nice energy, cool decor, affordable and tasty food onsite. Loved that it was away from the main noise/crowds of Venice but easily and quickly accessible by vaporetto. My only complaint? Walked past it the first time because the only...

The hostel is in a good location, that is where the compliments stop. While in venice I stayed here in a 16 bed dorm at an €70 a night, which is an extortionate price for a hostel midweek. I could not see any reason such as events in the city that may have pushed this price up so high for...

The Hostel is very good. It has an excellent location two stations away from Plaza San Marcos. I stayed in the girls room with 14 beds, the room is small but works fine for a hostel.

Staying in Giudecca

Neighbourhood Profile
Giudecca
Giudecca is a retreat for Venetians away from the crowds. Symbolically, six metal teeth represent Venice’s six sestieri (districts); the seventh, Guidecca, points away from the others – part of Dorsoduro, but separated by the Giudecca Canal. Giudecca evolved from a center of shipyards and factories to a quiet residential area with a sprinkling of restaurants and bars. The majestic harmonious Redentore church stands as thanks for delivering Venice from the plague, hosting an annual heartfelt festival.

Generator VeniceSo you fancy a date with a suave Venetian? well you’ve come to the right place. I’ll make you feel right at home in this floating city of bridges and canals. I open my doors in June to the great and the good, so make sure you navigate your way here soon my little friend. I’m about to show hostels in Venice what a Renaissance really is. See you on my little Island of Giudecca, close enough to see it all happen, far enough to avoid the crowds. Just the way I like it. I am Generator hostel in Venice and I am much, much, much more than a hostel. ... more   less
