It’s not hard to find beauty in a marble city built on a lagoon, but away from the obvious sights and monuments, across bridges, down backstreets and into secret squares, you’ll discover the hidden corners where Venetians hang out. Because if you want to find the real Venice, you have to get lost.
Generator Venice stands on the waterfront of the island of Guidecca, one short stop on the Vapporetto from Piazza San Marco. This hostel was originally a warehouse, so the building blends history and character with contemporary design features.
Inside the Generator Venice hostel you’ll find luxurious mosaic floors, a glass chandelier and an imposing stone fireplace. Public spaces are subtly split into intimate and open-plan areas – all surrounding the bar and café. Every room has a view of either the gardens, Lido, Grande Canal or the iconic San Marco. Not bad for a hostel, hey?
