  • Good: location, price (by Venice standards), and the kid at the desk was okay Bad: Room was tiny, dark, dingy, no decorations, paper-thin walls, construction outside and other customers woke us up frequently, wi-fi didn't reach the room, shared bathroom was gross and didn't have enough hot water for more than one shower Really the only draw to the place was the price, but if you can't afford a nicer place to stay you probably shouldn't be going to Venice in the first place

  • Location is pretty central, that's the only good thing about the hostel. The guy was very unwelcoming (as I read in previous reviews as well), there is no computers to use, bathroom was to be shared with a whole floor (only 2), mosquitoes were terrible! Wouldn't recommend the place except for its location. Price is not worth the money

  • Charged me in my home currency without letting me know and took an extra 3% due to the exchange rate. Rooms were fine but the entire floor shares one bathroom. WiFi is available only in one small room on a different floor, you can't access it within your bedroom. Breakfast is a single croissant. It may be cheap, but just stay somewhere else.

  • The accommodation was as described, in the center of Venice, a double-bedroom private with a shared bathroom on the floor, which was clean. Although the the staff was not very polite, which didn't give us a very good impression. The building though is a very beautiful one, which could easily be decorated a little nicer! It had nothing to do with a familiar atmosphere, moreover it was a clear money - orientated business to accommodate tourists! All in all okay.

  • So glad we found this place! It is located right on a popular street and within 5 minutes of the central part of Venice (Rialto Bridge). The atmosphere was great: always someone hanging out. Everything was clean and there was plenty of space. The only negative thing I could say is that it was a little loud at night because of the restaurants on the street beneath. And the door was very poorly marked--the only label was on the doorbell in small font. Great place for social people (all ages)!

  • Great location in the middle of the city. Less than 5 minutes walk to Rialto Bridge. Small common area and didn't really interact with anyone that wasn't in my room. Had bedbugs! Don't stay in Venice too long if you are travelin to many cities during your time abroad. Venice can be done in 2 days.

  • For a hostel, the price is really expensive. The kitchen is not opened all the day. Only one hairdryer can be hired so it's not convenient.

  • I thought this was a very pleasant atmosphere and the location was great! My GPS was a little mixed up but that had nothing to do with the hostel. I recommend this hostel to anyone who is looking for a nice place to stay in Venice, Italy!

  • We were on the top floor in a room with wooden beams that were home to several hundred LICE. We showed one to the receptionist who commented "It's only one!" Some of them traveled home i my daughters suit case. She is now receiving medication.

  • Well, the hostel is cheap, but It does not have breakfast. A breakfast in venezia is very expensive. Maybe it is better to pay 10 euros more per person and have breakfast. It is clean, but old and kinda difficult to find. Never go to venezia at night! It is dark and difficult tô locativo places.
