Really clean toilettes and bathrooms. Super ventilation. Bed is so comforting. Friendly staff. I would definitely go there another time too.
There were no locks in safe boxes. You have to bring a lock with you.
Nice location outside of crowded touristic quarters makes it very good place to chill. I have much appreciated air conditioning in rooms when outside temperatures hit above 35 degrees. Downstairs bar with reasonable prices is open till late and creates great atmosphere, even though it misses table for beer-pong :)
Lock on my dorm room didn't work leaving the door always open, which isn't secure at all. Men's bathroom and showers on second floor were in dire conditions - always water on the floors, no lights in toilet, no soap.
Considering that it is a hostel, the cost-benefit ratio is excellent!
The staff could be a little friendlier, sometimes it is easy to perceive that they are already a little tired of giving guidance to so many tourists, but...
Staff were all super friendly. I was a littler concerned being a mature woman about sharing in a dorm room for six, but it was fine, all the young women were very friendly and not noisy. Breakies were excellent value and the coffee was very good. It's such a relaxed atmosphere I definitely recommend Generator Venice to anyone coming to Venice who wants close proximity to the main island of Venice without the expense and crowds.
The Generator hostels are a chain of hostels all over the world that guarantees a good quality standard. This one in Venice has a lot of strong points, for instance: it is within a historic building on the Giudecca island from which you can have an alternative view on Venice, also Giudecca island is much less touristic than other parts of the city; in addition, by paying a small fee you can use lockers and it is quite well connected to the city by way of charming ferries. I would suggest if you are a flexible person who likes to adapt (anyway it is a hostel with big shared dormitories) and if you are looking for a different perspective of Venice ;)
The toilets were sometimes broken and anyway not so much clean. They really should improve this aspect!
With a stay at Generator Venice in Venice, you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Basilica of St Mary of Health and Grand Canal. Featured amenities include express check-out, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk.
