Very gloomy atmosphere in the room, but still very quiet! Not really a youth hostel but rooms in an apartment in an independant building. Good price for Venice, and 20 min by foot from the station (30 min from piazza san marco, ...)

No wifi in room


Amazing stay! Great staff and fantastic location, check in is only a 30 second walk (literally across the square) from the room. Can't wait to visit again and will be recommending it! Right in the heart of Venice!


Lovely stay in Venice, fantastic location and room. Staff were friendly and funny, very helpful. External lock to building and room, could use safety deposit box/locker to be better. Kitchen and shower rooms on each floor. Great part of Venice, close to grand canal and local bars. Highly recommended.


Staff were very helpful in the hotel where you check in, however the hostel is not actually attached here and there is no wifi in the hostel. Only one toilet on each floor but i felt safe and that the room was clean. Probably wouldn't go back as there was no kitchen or communal area facilities


In the centre of a buzzing square with a market and lovely bakery. The staff were very talkative and friendly. There was a slight issue regarding our booking however it was dealt with quickly and efficiently. We would recommend this place to anyone just make sure you have a map in advance as the directions given are VERY vague and so it took us longer than expected to find the hostel.


no kitchen or air conditioning in room but very friendly people and great location


a nice room and bathroom, in a good location in venice. the staff was helpful. the only downside was that there was no common space, and the wifi only worked during the day by the office.

The hostel was nice for the budget traveler; however, there is no common space to meet other travelers — just a few rooms and one bathroom. I would have given it a better rating except this hostel gave me BED BUGS. Hopefully they'll get that fixed soon. And the light in the bathroom was shattered on the ground the 2nd morning.


Room was at another location than the reception, bathroom was shared but no common area as other backpackers. Lighting was poor and the room and bathroom not clean enough.


DO NOT STAY HERE!! After two nights in this hostel myself and two other girls are absolutely covered in BED BUGS! On top of that there wasn't any wifi,the shower was disgusting and hardly worked, and the atmosphere is awful.

Good location but somewhat hard to find. Friendly man at check in but complicated to check in at the hotel across the road and then find the hostel.

The hostel was a great surprise! Very good location, walkable distance from the main train and bus station. The room was very clean, very confortable bed and great bathroom inside of the room.


I think that the location is OK, but the building is horrible and is not clean!!! there are a lot of insects, the quilt feet smelled, the beds with springs thrown. I mean the only think that I hope is a cleaned room! And it wasn't. The worst hostel in my trip was this! Sorry!! And I need to recognize that the manager is nicely but I have to be objective!

No kitchen for cooking things, rooms very hot and dirty. Not too bad though and it's cheap for Venice as it's on the island.


the hostel has nice staff and great location, but the room is not clean. If the room would been cleaner, it is best.


We had a decent stay. The location is good and the people are friendly. The bed is really comfy. But the shared bathroom on our floor was small and the shower head barely worked. Also, they don't take card, which I could have sworn Hostelworld said they did.


Booked hostel for total 3nights(23-26/05/2014) 1.Specially on weekends, at night you could hear lots of noise, might be difficult to sleep, even with windows closed. 2.No breakfast, but you can find lots of cafe+supermarkts in surrounding 3.You can leave your luggage at reception, b4/after checkin/out 4.Check in/Out at Antico Capon Hotel for both Backpackers and Antico Capon Hotel 5.No internet at Backpackers, but you can use Antico Capon Hotel internet sitting out in Campo Santa margerita.
