No WiFi in the hostel, the room was nice and clean, but no hostel in the way i am used to have and that i like: no common room, no nothing! The staff was more or less helpful, but not overly friendly, i just stayed one night, so i didn't care too much. It's clean and well located though, so you might as well take a shot at staying there for a short time! ;)
Our room was located just above a very busy street. The combination of the heat and noise made for a long sleepless night. Kitchen facility is also very poor :(.
Nice hostel in the heart of Venice. Its about 10 min walking from the train station (once you know the way). No WI FI, no breakfast. If your want to use internet, you have to go to another building 200 meters away.
Everything in Venice is hard to find but if you look at the water buses and get off at San Toma stop you can save yourself wandering. A little sketchy as the only thing showing it is a hostel is a pair of paper signs, but the rooms were fine. No wifi in this building but down the street (very annoying). Convenient and in the city but no social atmosphere, wifi or air conditioning. Otherwise fine place to sleep.
There were no fans or air con available it was too hot to sleep in the height of summer. Wifi was in the hotel around the corner. Kitchen available, but just a microwave, kettle, fridge. We ended up moving to the hotel around the corner for for an extra 10 euros for three of us just for the air con. It's in a good spot otherwise.
hallo, my stay was nice, the staff really helpfull, the only thing: it was sooo hot and there was no fan in the room. that is the minimum of comfort. also the toilet was half broken and there was always water on the floor in the bathroom (room 8)
The room was extremely hot!! The bathroom was not very clean and some of the pieces were broken. But the indian receptionist was extremely kind! :)
I was positively surprised. We actually paid for a twin bed and a shared bathroom but the room had two beds and our own bathroom. The location was great! The only problem was that we had to be at the hotel around 12 eventough there should be 24 h reception. No air conditioning in the room.

The staff was completely rude and not helpful during check in. Our flight into Venice got delayed overnight, and even though we emailed them immediately, they still made us pay for the night we missed. No AC, no wifi. Good location but definitely not worth the money. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone

No wifi, you have to walk to Hotel Iris for it. No lounge area to meet people. No A/C. They do let you check in late though which is nice. A bit hard to find. The outside sign literally just says "HOSTEL" but if you can find Hotel Iris, you can find the hostel. Would not stay here again.
if you go in summer it's almost impossible to sleep, it will be too hot
Plenty of storage space, but no way to lock any of it. Shower didn't drain well, and the staff wasn't very friendly. Wifi could only be used at the sister hotel. Good location, but pricey.
If you want to make friends, that is not the place! It seems a cheep hotel instead of a hostel. You cant cook, there is not atmosphere at all. Also very expensive Argentina
No air condition, but it seems that it's not big problem in Venice. Good hostel.
i stay 2 days without hot water because the day crew don't want to work... when i complain about the problem they only sayd me that the hostel was full and the boiller don't hold on....

We had a lovely stay at Backpackers Hostel Venice, and found it to be in a great location and within easy access of all the major tourist spots. It was also located close to a few side streets with lovely restaurants, which were all fairly priced and served good food. The room was clean, spacious and altogether very nice. Would stay again. It wasn't the cheapest hostel of out trip around Europe, but then we were in Venice so did expect steeper prices. It was good value for money to be fair.
Although I booked a two bed dorm, my room wasn't ready so they gave me a beautiful single room. Very clean hostel with friendly staff. A bit difficult to find.
I booked in for three nights in an ensure room to find I was sharing a bathroom with a dorm. No wifi, you have to go to another hotel around the corner. Had to fight for a towel, no blankets not even a top sheet to sleep under. This is not a place to meet people either, no atmosphere and is actually uni accomodation.
Nice clean and quiet hostel. Not allowed to come home after 2am which isn't good and no wifi. Not the best place to stay if you want to party!
I was booked in this hostel by someone in the states but when I got to the hostel they didn't have my res and sent me to the sister hotel around the corner hotel Iris and they didn't have me res but they got me in a room for the night n in the morning asked about staying that night said it would b ok n when I came back from my adventures they brought my stuff down n moved me to another room n made me pay the private room cost. Communication is not do good there
