What a brilliant find. And I use the word 'find' deliberately as it took quite a bit of finding! But it is smack/dab in the very centre of Venice Island - you could not possibly hope for a better location. The requirement to pay in full immediately upon arrival in cash is a little steep and some of the instructions given - both in how to find the place and in how to get to the nearest bank and back - could do with a little fine tuning.

Greeted upon arrival by a helpful member of staff. Excellent location not too close to the centre but within short walking distance to the hot spots. A great b

Good location but very basic facilities. Room was comfy enough but very basic. I am gluten-free and so could not eat the complimentary breakfast. I asked for a bowl and spoon to eat my own cereal and had to borrow the poor staff member's mug for the time I was there! No access to fridge or even basic kitchen facilities.

the location is good, very close to a major plaza. We were organized into a separated room which is outside the hostel. we didn't receive any room service except delivery of breakfast. the reception staff is nice, but still we have to pay before we check in. and the facility in the room is very poor, only beds and chairs, not even a desk.


Room was spacious, enjoyed the breakfast. Good location close to the attractions but difficult to get to from the train station.


Everything was very good. Had a problem with the shower (sometimes the temperature dropped), but nothing too bad.


It was a great stay in Ca' Contarini! We were a group of 8 people separated in 4 double rooms, and the stay was very nice. The rooms inside the main building are a bit nicer in my opinion. Indeed the hostel is located in an old venetian house which is very beautiful! The owner of the hotel is a very nice guy he will always help if you ask him! Overall the stay was GREAT! The only bad point was the breakfast which is very limited with no "fresh" products. Hope you'll change it for next time ;)


Wifi wasn't working in room, but host was very accommodating in other ways. We appreciate the thoughtfulness.
