  • Really unique considering the location and price. Located right next to a canal with a cute yard, just adorable. The hostel doesn't have a bar or a common space to hang around in, so it affects the athmosphere a bit, hard to get to know others. The biggest minus was no air con. We were forced to keep the windows open and you can imagine the amount of mosquitoes in Venice.Also the walls were so thin you could hear everything from next door, plus there's a university campus and they have parties..

  • Clean, simple, rather central and a good place to stay on the Venice island.

  • Room was nice and spacious. The shower wasn't the cleanest but manageable It can be quite difficult navigating your way round Venice with massive backpacks as the hostel was 20 minutes from the bus station. There is the water taxi option, but its quite expensive at 7.50 euro a trip. The hostel was very nice, and it was useful being able to store our bags after check out.

  • 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.
