  • Just stayed here one night but our stay was pleasant. There weren't any towels in the room but all you had to do was go down to reception and ask. There is a little notice board by the entrance that lets you know, "what's happening today" which I thought was a lovely idea. on the day we arrived I think it was a bus tour around Innsbruck. The kitchen was a tad messy, nothing too bad, but the cleaner was due the next day so that could easily be overlooked. Would definitely stay there again.

  • Very good located if you travel to/from the Mestre station. The wifi doesn't work very well in the room. It's a typical backpackers hostel, you may hear sounds from the corridor or the next room, however the living room with sofas downstairs is nice, after you log out from the hostel (and with a good wifi). Didn't try the breakfast.

  • If you're traveling alone and want a room of your own, then I don't think you be able to find anything cheaper than this hotel. But don't count on it being anything more than a bed and a shower. The atmosphere is pretty gloomy (even though it does not feel unsafe), cleanliness is okay if you don't look at "harder to reach" places like the top side of the bathroom mirror, and staff struggle with English (even though they're not impolite). Definitely not the highlight of my Italy trip.

  • It was in a great location. 10 minute walk from Venice Maestre which is a 10 minute ride from Venice city. The staff was helpful and nice. The bedding was clean and comfortable however the bathrooms were awful. It smelled like mildew, and while we were there the hot water wasn't working. They didn't bother to tell anyone. We had to brave a cold shower. There isn't a true bathtub , and there's a skimpy curtain that tries to keep the floor dry. You are able to leave your luggage after you checkou

  • It's a decent hostel, not the best, not the worst. Rooms are ok, toilets a bit small. The staff is helpful.
