  • Amazing Hostel, very clean, great cool atmosphere, comfortable beds and feels secure. The bar downstairs was very fun with great music and people. Cheap buffet style breakfast. Only thing is you need to take a waterbus to this hostel which will cost you 7 euro there and 7 euro back.

  • It was a very good place to stay. You should take a boat to get there, but its a nice experience.

  • Hostel itself is really nice. If you have a plan to buy a 3 days ticket for Vaporetto, you could choose this hostel. Anyway you should take a Vaporetto to get this hostel. It makes everything expensive. But it is nice hostel though.

  • The place is stylish, very clean and well organised. Really nothing to complain about! Some people complain in their comments that you need to pay for the boat to get to the place. That is right, but if you move around Venice, I would anyway recommend to buy a boat pass for your whole stay right on your arrival. It's so much fun to go around Venice by boat.

  • The facilities are nice other than the bathrooms which can get really bad. The lights are motion sensored and broken in the 3rd floor bathroom so I had to shower in the dark everytime because it kept shutting off after a second or two. The biggest complaint would be the staff though. Really? I can't even borrow a wine opener or get a cup of ice? There is no shared kitchen too and the hostel is far from most of your food options. Get ready to pay to be treated like a nuisance with few amenities.

  • I am From Myanmar and stayed there for two nights on weekends. I stayed in 8 person mixed bed room and bed is very clean n nice smell. When the person on upper bed is moving around, there is not much noise n bed frame is really good. My favorite thing of hostel is location, it will be far from main island but I really love to sit at canal side n drink beer. I never forget this moment. Strongly recommend to stay except price is a bit high. :)

  • Nice hostel. The location mades it really expensive, at least for me. I got a two day pass for 24 euros for the vaporeto, if not every trip is 7 euros if I´m not wrong. The staff was ok with me. I liked the room. Continental breakfast.

  • Nice place and easily accessible with waterbuss. Waterbus ticket costs 7 € one way, 20 € for 24 hours etc. The staff said that there are no cheaper tickets. It makes the stay more expensive. If you're planning to use the waterbus anyway then it doesn't matter. I slept really well in a 16 bed dorm. The bed and the linen were comfy and air conditioning good. The common room is big and it's easy to meet people. Most of the people were backpackers that are under 30, maybe under 25 years old.

  • This is not a hostel for youth, it is a hotel for all types of people including families. Backpackers who come to this place will be surprised by how fancy it is- and expensive. The staff were all very unfriendly and not very helpful. To get to San Marc (the main tourist attraction plaza in Venice) you have to spend 7£ on a ferry one way to get there. For people who are poor backpackers this isn't good money wise. And don't think you can get away without having one, we got fined 60£ each.
