Location: Near a low price supermarket
Need to wait for waterbus to travel away from or back to the hostel, this location is fine you are not in a rush.

Cool hostel, tight rooms

Posted Aug 5, 2016
Being a Generator, this hostel is obviously super swanky - the lobby/bar/restaurant area is great and pretty lively at all times. It's a big hostel, so not a very home-y vibe. The receptionists weren't the friendliest bunch and my 10-person room was REALLY tight (no room for luggage - lockers are good though). Be warned - catching the Vaporetto boat to get to this island is a bit inconvenient (and pricey!). BUT, the views from the room was amazing. It was also really nice to sit by the water in front of the hostel and watch the sunset over the city. Overall, I'd recommend it for a 1-2 night stay, but not any longer than that.

Nice hostel

Posted Apr 18, 2016
The room was clean and very comfortable. I stayed in a 16 bed mixed dorm and it was easy to sleep, even with so many people in the room, because the bunk beds have walls on one side to block the light. It was a bit tricky to get to by boat since its across the water from the main attractions, but that also meant that there weren't a lot of tourists and people trying to sell you things. I would stay there again!

Nice hotel and very close to all amentities

Posted Sep 8, 2015
Good location, very clean, helpful staff. Water taxi stop very close by 5 mins walk. San Marco across on the opposite side. Downside loud music playing until 1pm. They need to have a cut off time around 11am. Apart from that had a wonderful time and would go back there again.

Luxury type hostel

Posted Mar 18, 2015
Very nice hostel. Was in love with the decor. The staff was great. It was comfortable and I felt relaxed being here. Only downside was that it's on an island that requires use of the taxi boats which are €7 a trip or you can get the day passes. (Day passes are more cost efficient if you are staying here. Buy it as soon as you arrive if you plan to stay here). That's not really the hostels fault... just a tip. Also witnessed a very cranky woman make demands of the staff and they handled it well.

This is not another Generator Hostel

Posted Oct 26, 2014
Pros: The looby has a Venetian style
The bathrooms were filthy and unclean, the bathroom floors were in bad condition due to poor maintenance. I think that there is a poor management control. Giudeca, the island where the hostel is located is not a good location. You will loose precious time due to ferry transfers, also it costs you 7euro per each ferry transfer.

Wonderful!

Posted Oct 23, 2014
This was our first time staying in a hostel. After hearing stories from other travelers about hostels in general our standards were low. But this place is BEAUTIFUL! It's FUNKY STYLE made for a fun stay. Would highly recommend it! Very clean. The pastries and coffee at the bar are amazing. The breakfast is an extra fee and wasn't very good. Towels are a little extra so you may want to bring your own. The water taxi takes you 100 meters from the front door. We bought a day water taxi pass. The pass is good for 24 hours, a great value as well. the water taxi is the cheapest and efficient way to travel through the islands. They pass by ever few minutes.

Pros: everything
Cons: possibly the breakfast, but bare in mind in England we have a pretty great meal to start the day
Location: a 5 minute boat ride and you are at the main square
Great location, great hostel, great bar, met a load of great people too from all over the world
