About Generator Venice

Set in a 19th-century, grain store warehouse, and located on Giudecca Island's waterfront, Generator Hostel Venice offers a combination of modern design and historical beauty.

Hostel rooms vary from private rooms with a view to large shared rooms accommodating up to 16 guests. Some feature en suite bathrooms, while all include one locker per bed.

Guests can take advantage of the hostel's free Wi-Fi, store their luggage with the 24-hour front desk, or book event space. There's a lounge area with a TV available for entertainment, and the entire property is non-smoking.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served at the on-site Generator Restaurant. Kick the day off with a barista-style coffee, then relax in the bar after a long day and try one of the local beers or signature cocktails.

Marvel at the beautiful Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute, within a 1.2-kilometre walk from Generator Hostel Venice, or hop on the water bus, which takes 39 minutes to Venice Island.

Positive Reviews

Worth a punt

It’s very modern and quite clean. The price is attractive, particularly when compared with others in Venice. Generally, you can easily get into deep water here with the city's very high prices.

A quiet oasis

This isn’t the prime island in Venice, although St. Mark’s Square is only one stop away and everywhere is easily accessed when you invest in a water bus pass. It’s not as noisy as the main centre - and that’s a real plus.

A good vibe in Venice

There’s a good atmosphere here and the members of staff are super nice. The communal areas and of course, the bar, are really fun places to relax and meet other travellers.

Negative Reviews

Not budget accommodation

Travellers found the hostel to be pretty expensive compared to other similar accommodation in the area. Regardless, they accepted that there isn't much else to choose from in Venice where the location is this good.

Messy communal showers

With the set up in the shared bathrooms, you will find it difficult to get any real privacy. The showers are also designed in such a way that water is splashed all over the place, and guests said they had to be extra careful not to slip.

No communal cooking facilities

Those who wanted to prepare their own meals were unimpressed with the lack of public cooking facilities at the hostel. You can, however, enjoy meals at the on-site restaurant if you wish, then head to the bar after dinner for a night cap.
