Welcome to our hostel

Located in the heart of Venice in a refurbished grain store on Guidecca Island, Ostello Venezia offers great views of the city in a lively and friendly atmosphere. Palladian churches, the Doge's Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection are all within easy reach.

This Venice hostel offers a great selection of rooms, from dorms with bed lights and privacy screens, to quads and private en-suites. There’s free Wi-Fi, a lounge to relax and socialise in, a bar to grab a drink and a travel shop where staff will help you plan your visit to all the hidden treasures of the city.

Ostello Venezia is a great starting point to discover Venice and the neighbouring islands of Murano, known for its glass work; Burano, known for its brightly colourful homes and knitted fabrics; and Torcello, an ancient site known for its majestic Romanesque cathedral.

The Hostel is really beautiful, i mean REALLY beautiful. The location is good, just 2 stops from San Marcos and quiet as it's in an island infront of the city. You can eat and drink for few euros and watch the game and meet ppl. Try the special bellini!. There only "bad" thing is: there is no kitchen and no breakfast, so you are kind of forced to by your food there.

Dear Lorena, Thank you very much for your review. We are glad to know that you enjoyed staying with us. You are right, we are just 5 minutes away from the main city center by waterbus. We are very well connected to the main island and to the city’s main attractions, not to mention the wonderful view of the city from our hostel. That gives an extra value to your experience in this old and awesome city. Whenever you pass by in Venice you are more than welcome to come and visit us. Best regards Generator Venice Team

it's clean,lounge and bar is spacious. reasonably priced food. good Wifi. Staff is friendly most of the times. On the down side, rooms are very crammed. I stayed in 8 seater, and I can vouch that all 8 cannot even stand in the room at the same time. The hostel is on an island cut off from the other islands with all major attractions. But that's okay. everything is a boat ride away anyway in Venice. Would come here again only if I am not spending absolutely any time in room other than sleeping.
