Cool place! ”

Love to stay on this quite island of Giudecca which has the amazing view of the main island. Staff are helpful and nice, and enjoy chatting with other visitors in the cool common area. Remember to get off at “Zitelle” station instead of any other station at “Giudecca”, cos the staff just told me Giudecca when I messaged and ask them for direction. We stayed in the en-suite, so we don’t have any problem regarding the bathroom, charging, privacy, etc. But if you are staying in the dorm, remember to bring everything you need including towel! they only allow rental, won’t provide it.

Great Party Hostel!”

Amazing location just a short hop across to all the Venice action. Incredibly clean and very well designed hostel. I was a solo traveler in Europe and had the most fun at this hostel due to the people met and the many cheap euro wines consumed. Would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a budget friendly clean place to stay in Venice. Please note this hostel does not have a kitchen for you to cook your own meals however meals available for purchase are fairly cheap

Good trendy hostel with elevator”

Elevator, minimum carrying luggage around in Venice, close to water bus stop

Very good. Room is clean and I am happy it is close to waterbus stop and has an elevator. So basically when you arrive at S. Lucia, just go to water bus stop in front of station and take a 40-min ride and you will arrive at Zitelle and the hostel is just one minute walk away from the stop. So easy. No need to carry luggages around searching for your hotel around Venice like most people do. I am glad I stayed here.

Overall okay stay”

This is the first Generator I’ve been to. It’s a good location. Right across the water from Piazza San Marco. This does mean however you need to take the vaporetto (waterbus) to get to main Venice. The station is a 1 min walk from the hostel. No other way around it. The lobby and resting area is gorgeous and clean. Staff approachable and friendly. I only had breakfast there but it was well made. The dorms are nicely designed. The bed is comfy enough but the sheets (or maybe the bed itself) smelled a little like old wet laundry. The bathroom in front of my dorm ran out of soap the first afternoon as well as the main lobby but they fixed it when I brought it up. The toilet paper on my floor ran out in one of the stalls the night before and still wasn’t filled the next late morning. But the actual washroom itself felt clean despite the slow restocking. Overall it is good value for your money. Luggage lockers are big enough for 60L backpacks with a bit of room left too.

Very good”

A very decent hostel in Venice. Although the location is not on the main Venice island but it is very easy to reach using vaporetto, only 2 stations away if you get on Line 2 at St Mark Square. Very clean and comfortable. There are only 2 shower rooms and 2 toilets for female on my floor. You have to wait for a while for your turn but definitely still manageable. Staffs are friendly. Highly recommended considering that Venice is an expensive tourist area.

Beautiful location, great atmosphere, yummy food”

The views are great all around Venice, but having your hostel open up to amazing waterfront views was something I didn't think was possible. I met some cool people while there and hung out downstairs one night for food and drinks. Location is right near one of the boats to transport you to the different islands. Would stay again!

Very well equipped and furnished hostel”

Well furnished, clean, location

The hostel was a nice place to stay, with big drawers for own personal belongings and very well furnished hostel lobby. It has a personal light for each bunk and in general, it is very professionally furnished. The location was very good as well, as the water taxi from the hostel was only 2 stops away to the main island/church. There is little walking required from the main train station to this hostel, as most of the travelling is done by water taxi , so a water taxi(vaporetto) pass is highly suggested. However, there are certain downsides to this hostel. The biggest issue for me was that the doors to the female or male toilets had NO lock and the shower cubicles also had no lock while the shower cubicle doors were transparent throughout except the 'main areas' being blocked. As a guy I was fine with it, however I heard concerns from a female friend as she was surprised the doors were not locked and technically anyone could enter the toilets freely, especially when the shower cubicle doors were exposed, with no locks. Moreover, there was very insufficient space to hang your own towels and clothings while bathing. However, if those are not much of an issue (which shouldn't be to most people who seek for a hostel experience), it is a hostel worth staying at as it is very comfortable.

Comfortable rooms, nice bar and friendly staff.

Nice place and cheaper than a lot of other budget hotels but you must take into consideration the cost of vaporetto to get in and out of Giudecca island where the hostel is situated.

Great stay but too few bathrooms”

I really enjoyed my stay, everything was clean and well taken care of. I appreciated that it was convenient to take the vaporetto to Venice proper but off the beaten path enough it wasnt crowded. My only complaint was that there was only one bathroom for 8 beds + 1 general one in the hallway. Made timing showers and teeth brushing difficult and take longer than necessary. Otherwise it was a great stay and Id recommend it.

Had a bunk bed in the 6-bunk room, the staff were approachable, the room was clean and tidy, theres a bar and restaurant just below at ground level, also it is very modern in such an ancient city. The lobby was aesthetically beautiful and with that price, is so affordable. Wait did i mention, they have lamp and socket at every bed. Only down side is the locker doesnt have lock and they do not provide amenities like towel. Too much to ask for but would be great to have.

Overall it was a good experience, but a few things could have been better. Location sounds great, in view of San Marco, but you need to take a $16 return ferry to see/ do anything. Not even a corner store on the island. Room was very small for 16 beds . Good breakfast at a reasonable price. Great staff.

I'd say that it's worth. The price is acceptable in this expensive city. The G.V hostel located in a different satellite island, so you need water bus to get there (then you must buy water bus ticket even it's not exist on your original plan :))) But easy to find. Well the room was clean, staff very nice, cool music, and they have buffet breakfast go with good price. But the internet connection will ruin if there are so many people use it (especially at night), and you don't have your own locker, you have to buy it...

Good place, but need to take ferry to reach (EUR7.50 per way)”

Overall the stay here was good. Clean facilities, friendly staff, nice view, clean room. The only dissatisfactions I have were its breakfast choice and its location. It's located off the connected islands of the main city, so you'll need to pay EUR 7.50 per way to get to and from the island. Coupled with the other astronomical transportation charges (eg EUR per way 8 to / from airport), this makes the extra payment a little sour to the mouth. So just be prepared to pay the ferry (vaporetto) charges. The breakfast costs EUR 4.50 (to be paid separately), but its choice of food felt inadequate - ham, cheese slices, bread, jams, canned fruits, yoghurt, and drinks.

Nice hostel in a good location ”

The location is the best, just 2 ferry stops to St Marco. Great view. The bed is comfy and clean with individual socket and lamp (though a bit dim). Storage space is nice if u prepare a lock like every other traveler. The common area is of friendly design and setting. Staff is all friendly and extremely helpful. The only weakness is no kitchen and there is one sink in the shower room, so sometimes we need to cram up and share in the morn and eve. All in all, I enjoyed my stay very much.

It was pretty expensive for a shared female dorm but I will say it is worth the value of money! It is not located on the main island so you will need to take the water bus or taxi to get there. I guess there are only some local residences and restaurants on this island so it is really quietful and peaceful, not crowded at all. The hotel is well furnished, and I really enjoyed their buffet breakfast a lot! The room is airconditioned, which is really appreciated when you visit during the stuffy summer.

Nice to be away from the main island as it's a little quieter. Perhaps not ideal if you are having a long stay. Nice and quiet in the big rooms too!
