Liked: Location!!!

Disliked: Showers are interesting!! They are glass doors with a bit of sticky stuff on them and you can see in!- also they are right at the door so if someone opens the door to go to the toilet or shower, anyone from the hall can see you!

Liked: Cracking location, reasonably priced, well fitted, clean, nice bar area

Disliked: I had to wait 40mins to check in and the man was unapologetic and rude. His manor was as though all guests were lesser beings and a great inconvenience. Shame as the girl and older man I subsequently dealt with were friendly helpful and charming. The hostel (bar) is extremely commercialised which stains the atmosphere. No food allowed (a number of embarrassing notices try to make light of it: 'you wouldn't bring your own panda to a zoo' or something)- and food and drink heavily marked and priced. 40cl of factory larger sets you back a hefty €5 as does the cheapest pizza which was really very poor.

Liked: great common room (bar) to meet other travelers. Good bed. location is not on main island, but it was nice to go back to a quiet area after seeing loads of tourists during the day. (just keep in mind the water bus takes around 40 minutes from train station)

Disliked: Cannot bring own food and the bar was quite expensive for a hostel bar. Way too few staff on weekend compared to the number of guests staying & partying; there was a long wait at the bar and for reception, and the staff were really unfriendly, as they were too busy.

Liked: Very reasonable price in Venice, room is clean and secure. There is 24hr ship between the hostel and the main island.

Disliked: The bed light is not bright enough. The hostel located in another island, If you are traveling with pass, it is no problem to stay here. Otherwise, it is a bit costly for in and out.

Liked: I've already stayed in a Generator Hostel in Hamburg and it was awesome. It's pretty much the same atmosphere in this one in Venice. Nice and friendly staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, super comfy beds. It is also safe and secure for your stuff, you can lock it under your bed with your own locker or rent a locker with a code. I really like to stay in Generator Hostels and if I have the opportunitiy to book another one in another city, I would do it. Thanks for the pleasant stay.

Disliked: Nothing to complain about.

Liked: This is one of the best hostels that I have ever stayed in. Very clean and fresh. The reception had all the information I asked for on the city. The location was absolutely phenomenal.

Disliked: The only thing I would change would be to make the breakfast a bit better, but for 3,50 it was alright.

Liked: amazing hostel, very modern! great staff, great beds! the pillows were soo comfy! its a very nice and cheap bar for food and drinks! If i come back to venice im booking with these guys again!

Disliked: the only issue (which is not the hostels fault) is the transport situation, you are a bit far from everything and you have to get a boat to the main island! but it also makes it less touristy and way more relaxing!

Liked: Generator Hostel was fantastic! The lobby and bar area have a cool atmosphere, which make it perfect for having a drink and meeting other travellers. Food and drinks were served until late, and the 3.50€ breakfast buffet was well worth the price. The rooms were clean, orderly and each bed had its own locker to store valuables as well as its own outlet to charge electronics. The WiFi was great: easy to connect to and a strong connection.

Disliked: I would keep in mind that the hostel is on Giudecca Island, which is a short ferry bus ride from the "main" island. There wasn't anything of interest to me on Giudecca Island, so I got myself a 20.00€ 24 hour ferry bus pass to travel between the different islands.

Liked: It was very clean and the beds and bedding were very nice.

Disliked: It was a party hostel. It was very difficult to sleep when the music from the hostel run bar downstairs came up through the floor until three or four in the morning.

Liked: The sheets and blankets were very clean. The mattress was spacious, bigger than a standard twin. The showers were wide and had a shelf to place my bottles. The staff were able to answer all of my questions and were funny/understanding.

Disliked: The shelf on the backboard of my bed was very dusty. The bathroom floor was almost always wet because people would exit the showers wet to change in the bathroom stalls. I did not think breakfast of 3,50€ was worth it. I bought it on the first day and all I could really eat was the bread with jelly and cheese because I don't eat ham and the mixed fruit had pineapple, which I'm also allergic to.

Liked: The bar and restaurant area is amazing and has a great atmosphere for making friends. The staff are super friendly!

Disliked: Water from the female communal showers dripped out onto the floor so there was always a puddle of water at the bathroom entrance. Shower mats would probably fix this? :)

Liked: The Venice Generator Hostel is a little pricey, but what you get is absolutely amazing. If you can land a view looking out over the lagoon, then you're going to have an amazing view of Venice. It is especially nice because it is a little removed from the city as well, there are a few places to eat, a market, and bank all on the island. The atmosphere makes it so easy to meet people and make friends. Some of my favorite memories were sitting in front of the lagoon talking with people from all over the world. I highly recommend this place.

Disliked: Drinks and food were a little pricey, but other than that I did not have any complaints.
