  • I would recommend going to Venice, and this was a great hostel. Good location close to a good night life: pubs, pizza places, downtown and train station. Our room had 4 beds i(not bunk beds) in our room, two shared bathrooms for the floor one with a toilet, bidet, and sink, the other with a toilet, bidet, sink and shower. There were lockers available in the room. (My padlock worked on them.)

  • The hostels accommodations itself weren't bad. The service was terrible. Though I think it was out of the employees control, I arrived and was told That my brother and I wouldn't be able to stay in the same room. We had booked together but the employee simply said it was impossible that we could stay together. I asked who would Be sleeping in the room with me and she told me a couple and a single man. I woke up to find three men sleeping in this sma room with me. If I had wanted to sleep alone

  • I had never wi-fi in the room. They said it was a technical problem but never fixed it

  • Despite being few in number, my experiences with hostels have been very negative. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived at Ostello S. Fosca. The staff was incredibly friendly and the facilities were actually clean (two things that you will not come across very often in hostels). I do not recommend that anyone stays at a hostel. But if you must, you should stay at Ostello S. Fosca. You will not find a better hostel.

  • Excellent stay overall! The neighborhood was amazing and very central to all the major attractions, but just one side-street off from the main road as to be very quiet and peaceful there. The value, especially with the location, was great. Would definitely recommend.

  • Although challenging to find, it's location is quite good, although there doesn't seem to be any particularly amazing locations. The staff are nice, as well as the other guests, but the bathrooms are a bit odd. One bathroom per room (located inside the room) with the shower open. All my roomates respected our privacy, but I could imagine a situation where this is not the case.

  • Of the 5 cities I visited while in Italy, I think this hostel offered the best service, facilities and atmosphere. It was a great place to stay and I've already recommended it to people that I met in other cities. They know what we travelers need!!

  • It's too late to open the reception at 09:00 and too early to close it at 20:00. Sometimes I wanted to use the microwave or to heat water and I couldn't because it was closed. The fact that is also closed between 12:00 and 15:00 is a little bit weird too. I wished they had a kitchen too but I heard they are building it. Wi-Fi was sometimes really bad. What I liked very much is that you could print your tickets for flights or trains and that you had a security card for entrances.
