In the latest post in our Hostel Focus series, we took a closer look one of our accommodation partners in Venice – the chic and sleek Generator Venice.
Situated just off the main island (don’t worry, the main island is just a short boat ride away so you’re close to all the sights and bustle, without the crowds and hassle), guests can enjoy budget accommodation that offers amazing views of Venice, friendly and helpful staff, gorgeous interiors as well as lots of space and cool little common areas to socialise.
If you’re looking for a hostel that has everything, then Generator Venice really does tick all the boxes. In fact, it scooped the Most Popular Hostels Venice title in the 2017, 2016 and 2015 Hostelworld World’s Best Hostels Awards (voted for by the public). Not bad going.
We spoke to the lovely Massimo Follesa, Revenue Manager, to get the lowdown on this upmarket budget accommodation.

What makes your hostel special/unique?
Our design style is one of the things that makes us unique, as well as the cool vibe we – and our guests – have created.

The views of San Marco Square are also spectacular.
