Went during the carnival & it was the only decently priced hostel avaliable. Staff often seemed annoyed when asking them anything. They have a big common area/bar to hang out in which is nice. Rooms are kept clean. Location is good if you get a ferry pass (which i definitely reccomend you do). Hostel tries to squeeze money out of...

Bedspread with blood stains. Wall sockets don't work at all. No place to dry your towels. Not enough hangers. Poor breakfast. The heating system didn't work. The only good thing was the location and the excellent attention of the crew which was what made up for everything else.

Wonderful cheaper option for a family away from the madness of the main st marks island. Good fun and very relaxed. Just watch out for the cost of getting back and forwards from Giudecca, Also restaurants limited .

Agree with others, slightly cramped dorms, odd showers with opaque glass so you can kind of see through and no where to hand your clothes. Lovely common areas downstairs, but not many bathrooms near the bedrooms. Breakfast buffet is poor: 4.50 euro for juice, yogurt, one type of cereal, bread roll, cheese and ham. No musli, no bread for toasting...

Mehrbettzimmer, aber alles auf hervorragendem Niveau. Freundliches Personal, gut bestückte Bar, Frühstück in verschiedenen Versionen zu für Venedig erschwinglichen Preisen, Saubere Betten, saubere Bäder, wenig Lärm und tolle Lage. Das ist ein super Preis-Leistungs Verhältnis. Dormitories but at a very high level. The staff is very friendly, the bar is well stocked, breakfast quite affordable, clean rooms, beds and sheets,...

Lovely clean hostel but the room I was in (a female dorm) was pretty cramped. Also the hot water was on and off during my stay which was very irritating. Staff were kind and friendly and the locatiom is great.

The bar/cafe area is really social and friendly, and they offer great meals at good prices, especially since the hostel doesn't have tonnes of food options nearby, and because Venice is naturally expensive. The showers have good water pressure and are hot, and the hostel is really clean and charming. It's also between two waterbus stations. The dorms do feel...

The Generator hostels are stunning, raising the bar for backpacker hostels everywhere! This beautiful boutique style hostel felt more like a designer hotel. The attention to detail and design in the communal area is stunning, unfortunately the thought didn't quite make is to the sleeping areas. Our dorm was ridiculously crammed and the bathroom facilities was much to be desired

Cool place, doesn't feel like a hostel when you walk in. Aside from the dormitory style rooms, I wouldn't really call it a hostel. There are no kitchen facilities, not even boiling water or a microwave. Although the place has some cool relaxing common areas, it would be good if you could bring in your own food and drink, esp...

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
