I stayed at the Generator for 2 nights when I was in Venice. It was the off season so it was a little quieter but there were still plenty of people there. The hostel is on an Island across from Piazza San Marco but right at a vapetto stop 1 stop from the Piazza. I liked this because it was a little quieter and comfortable. Venice is a little dirty and there's no nightlife to speak of so the bar at the hostel, which is a chill spot, was great for me and I met some cool people there. There are a number of different types of rooms so you'll see families and couples there as well (I was solo). But as I said, it doesn't hurt because if you're going to Venice looking to party you won't stay too long anyway.
I would highly recommend this place, it was really comfortable by hostel standards. I stayed in a 16 bed dorm (although prob only 10-12 beds were actually occupied each night) and it was great and cost 16 euro per night. Bathrooms and common areas were very clean, although that being said I was awake quite early both days and probably one of the 1st to shower each day....
If I had one complaint it would be that they try to gouge you for any extras (a tiny padlock is 7.50 euro, a towel is 3 euro and if you want to do laundry it's 3.50 euro for the washer and another 3.50 for the dryer).
Overall an excellent experience!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
