Very clean space, but out of the way. If you're staying more than a day or two, definitely get the pass so the water bus is cheaper. Hostel has great ambiance and decor on main floor with the cafe/bar/lounge space, though outlets to charge devices are sparse. Bathrooms are awkward, as there is only one hook for each shower, and...

The hostel is in a really great location, two minutes away from the Zitelle stop (two stops from San Marco and 40 min from Piazzale Roma). The hostel is clean and modern, it's a little pricey but it's Venice... The staff were nice and the beds are good, the bunk beds are solid and they all have a light and...

Here is what's good about the hostel: Location is excellent. Design is cool. What's bad: It's just dirty. Bathrooms up on the floors, toilets down at the restaurant...simply dirty. You want to try not to touch anything - sink gets clogged, used paper towels pile up. And the breakfast is sad. It's basically the most processed and cheap stuff you...

I have always been a fan of Generator Hostels, especially because of their locations and the fact that they are always well connected. And this hostel is no different. The water bus stop is about a minutes walk away and there are two stops so you can take two different water bus lines. Location wise, you cannot beat this place...

Ventilation/cooling on the third floor would be appreciated, there were some "AC" units but they didn't work and opening the window wasn't enough for a cross breeze. There also weren't enough bathrooms and there weren't even that many people there but they were always occupied, also it was too confusing to tell the difference between mens and womens restrooms because...

We stayed for 2 nights at the hostel, and its location is perfect. We arrived by train, don't be fooled by the €7.50 vaporetti ticket with the a picture of a suitcase, just buy a 24 or 48h ticket straight away, you can still take your bags with you, and you will use this ticket to get around.

This was a little pricey (~40 euros for an all-girls dorm), but the location made it worth every cent. The hostel is just steps from the lagoon and just across from San Marco. The staff was extremely helpful in navigating the water bus timetables so I didn't miss my very early flight.

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
