  • the only con. of the place is that they dont have towels, and it is not mentioned anywhere. and the shared area is closed most of all the time. but if you need cheap and clean place to stay in good location, go for it!

  • The room for 10 people (girls only) was clean and nice. The room was cleaned every day. However, when I was there the was no kitchen at all (although they said they were building it). The reception hours are ridiculous in my opinion, only from 1 to 8 p.m. So I arrived after 10 and its just because I was lucky I got inside. The common area where the kettle (coffee) is, opens only at 1 p.m., which is also inconvenient. However, the area was quiet and nice, with a cute garden. I liked it.

  • I had a nice stay at Ostello S. Fosca. It was easily approachable from St. Lucia. What i liked most is the cleanliness of the rooms as compared to my hostel in Rome. Only thing to make it better if you can check the damp smell. I stayed in 10.2.

  • Our stay was very nice, the receptionists - especially Laura - were very welcoming and helpful. There were ceiling fans in the rooms so we didn't have any problems with the rooms being too hot. Unfortunately, the ensuite shower and toilet was not clean - there was mold between the tiles and on the shower head, the toilet seat could be cleaner too...

  • We only stayed for one night, but the staff was very friendly when checking in and out. The hostel is in the middle of the city centre, it is a 15 minute walk from the station and a 15 minute walk to the rialto bridge.

  • We had to share the room with another person, eve if we had asked for a private room for only two people. They didn't have towels, neither for renting, and it's unacceptable for a hostel.

  • No AC in the rooms. and they are in a way that they become ovens in the night. so if you are not used to 30+ celsius its hell to sleep there if the temperature is 30 or more in daytime. my whole room woke up and took walks during the night to cool down.
