Generator Hostel Venice
It seems like a miracle that anything in Venice
could be affordable. But now that the 36-room Generator Hostel opened on Venice's Guidecca Island, the budget-minded can breathe more easily when dropping anchor in Venice. Better yet, Generator's Venice outpost isn't your average hostel experience. There are no dingy communal kitchens, and all of the bathrooms and showers are en suite. The lobby doubles as a happening open lounge space, where guests sip on negroni's or play pool; later in the evening, DJs often pop in to play at the bar or on the waterfront.From a design perspective, this might be the chicest hostel in all of Italy. The original timber and marble bones of the building have been expertly restored, and beautiful new tile work and furnishings dress up the public spaces.
