The hostel is in an old church which is really romantic


Everywhere in Venice is expensive so this is quite good value for money really. A little walk away from the busy centre, this hostel was just the bed we needed! A very polite welcome from staff and helpful advice. We felt safe here but it was very silent and not much of a social experience. Generally quite clean and good kitchen facilities.


Great room, facilities and cleanliness spot on. Friendly staff, good location close to water transport stop. Didn't really have a hostel feel to it, but it was just quiet due to not many others there at the same time. Would definitely recommend to others.


Didn't really feel like a hostel - hardly met anyone else around, even staff! But great value and 5 mintues walk from one of the main streets. Good kitchen and bathroom facilities. Would stay here again.


A cheap place in a quiet street. Not directly in the center (close to the boat stop called "Orto") but Venice is small enough so that we could go back by foot every day. The ladies taking care of the place were really nice. Maybe two minor defaults that might bother some people: the doors were really noisy and we had a lot of stairs to take to reach the room. But I would definitly recommand this place!


The hostel is within the dormitory area of a church which is very unique. The location is great if you dont want to hear yelling or loud people throughout the night, and the walk to San Marco Square is no more than 20 minutes thanks to Venices small size. Great local prices and restraunts around the hostel since many customers are locals. We had a great stay!


It's a nice place. You may use kitchen to save your money ).


Awesome if your on a budget for your stay in Venice ! Great for backpackers and couples , cheap for Venice! Kitchen facilities are awesome great way to save €€ . Didn't find it out of the way at all and if your a backpacker you are used to walking! 15 mins to train station and Venice is fun to explore via foot anyway! The place was clean in a quiet area but nice to be away from Main Streets =) super happy we enjoyed our stay here .. One thing tho ! Wifi doesn't work. Grab a local SIM card.

Was upgraded to the hotel for free. We were on the 3rd floor but there was no lift. No hot water and no kettle provided. Wifi limited to 3hours per room per stay (so the 2of us shared 3hrs wifi in 2days). Apart from these, things are fine.
