friendly staff, good price, and nice decoration make it a really nice stay. I especially liked the superb view from across piazza san marco. I finished the review but trip advisor wants it longer so I'll just keep writing

It was a nice place to stay at. A bit pricey, but I guess all of Venice is like that. Be sure to buy the 24 hr ferry/water taxi ticket when you board the first ferry to get to the hostel. Per trip cost is quite expensive and will set you back if you take more than 3 trips a...

I have stayed there 3 times because it's such a lovely place to stay! It has a very relaxed vibe with helpful staff and comfortable rooms.

I had a great experience at the Generator Venice! Very cool hostel, awesome surroundings, including the main lounge and dorm rooms. The breakfast wasn't great but the dinners were affordable, fast and delicious. The front desk, while slow with check in, were very helpful with questions about trains and things to do. I would definitely recommend it to others!

Lovely vibe in bar area. Lovely decor. Room basic. But ok. Fantastic location. I wish the staff could of been more helpful as this was my first trip to Venice.

In love with the ambiance, the karaoke nights and DJ nights won't let one miss home! The food and drink prices at the bar are very affordable. The location is excellent, and so is the cleanliness! Add a couple more euros to your Venice budget and have a blast!

Maybe not the best location as you will have to pay for waterus here and back, but keep in mind that other cheap hostels are also on the islands. Besides it is a chance to explore Guidecca and see Venice from afar — quite worth the price. If you've ever been to Generator hostels, then you know, that they are...

This was a fun and funky hostel just off the main island. It's accessible by ferry and very easy to get to (getting a multi-day pass helps) and not too much trouble. For the price, I found this was a good value considering how expensive Venice can be. The decor is very chic and appealing, with plentiful options for drinks...

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.
