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.

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.

There is nothing in hostel. No Wi-fi, no kitchen, no 24 hour reception.. But located in very good place, you can find easily from railway station.

This was fine for two nights but it's really just a place to lay your head at night. Mattresses are crooked (although sheets were clean) and there is no luggage storage, towels, or locks so bring your own! The man working our second day was very nice. There is only one toilet and shower for everyone, so use it when it's clean and wear shoes !

The page said bed and breakfast was not included. The staff wasn´t nice, we arrive at the address we had in the reservation but the bed was located in other building, very dirty, dark and depressive and without internet access. the beds were dirty, they don´t offer sheets and in the bed leg was a book supporting the bed. The bathroom was dirty too.

The wifi was broken so we had to use the check in hostel's across the square which has no lounge, and we got kicked out one night while trying to use it. The beds are terrible and all broken. However, San margherita is amazing, full of locals, markets, and good atmosphere, away from lots of tourists.
