Hostel is in a fairly good location, about 15 mins from St Marks square but takes a long time to walk to from the train station, water taxi is available but it is also very expensive. The staff were very friendly on arrival and are happy to give advice. There's a supermarket about 2 mins from the hostel, which is useful if you want to use the kitchen to cook something. There is only one toilet/shower. There is a roof top terrace with great views, but the main problem was the lack of air con!

Amran makes the Hostel , he is friendly and very helpful, gives a good insider view of where to eat and best places to visit plus how to get there . Your biggest problem is asking the right questions to get the best answers.

Hostel was not marked well from the street. Directions online and signs within the hostel had many spelling and grammar mistakes, making finding it even more difficult than just trying to navigate the crazy streets of Venice. Man who checked us in was SUPER friendly and helpful, as he carried my two bags up about five flights of stairs. Other workers barely interacted with us. Room was clean, but the bathroom needed some attention and a MIRROR and plug. One mirror and plug for 10 people is bad.

There is no air conditioning so it's very hot. They leave the windows open so mosquitoes are plenty. I was part of a group of two and both left covered in mosquito bites. Sheets/blankets/pillows are dirty. We had booked a two night stay and ended up leaving after the first night because of the conditions.

The staff is very nice. It's near St.Marco Square. There's a supermarket nearby.Wifi signal is not stable in bedroom and public area.

The hostel definitely needs some basic maintenance that seems to get ever overlooked, but for the price and location you won't find any better. The rooftop terrace has an amazing view but some real chairs that aren't horribly uncomfortable would be useful there. The host is very friendly and helpful. Some rooms are huge and spacious, others are very cramped, so ask to change if you don't like where you are at. Each room has its own en-suite mini kitchen and toilet/shower so that is cool.

This was convenient and for Venice a relatively good price. My only disappointment was the absence of personal lockers for the 8 person mixed room.

Location is great! Kitchen is tiny and poorly stocked, but functional. The WiFi is awful and hardly ever works, so if you need to use that a lot, be warned. Staff are pretty friendly, but they tended to throw out my stuff if it was on the floor (or looked like garbage?) - soap container, razor, bottle of olive oil, etc. Make sure you keep your stuff organised so that doesn't happen. Otherwise the apartment-style set up is great and homey and the roof terrace was a real treat.

Overall enjoyed our stay there. The location can be a little hard to find but that's normal for Venice. It is, however, very close to San Marcos. The staff were helpful with places of interest and how to get where. One minor gripe is that the wi-fi only works in the common area. Price was very reasonable especially by Venice's standards. All in all, pretty good!

Really liked this hostel despite its flaws the roof terrace provides a great view of the city, particularly at night after the football with a few bottles of wine & beer. Only two downsides were WiFi rarely let us connect if at all & secondly the bathroom was not entirely... you could tell it had been wiped down but the shower had mold stuck in various grooves and seals which was quite off putting although it was given a proper clean while we were there. No idea how regularly. Shiny now tho :)

It was a very good place to stay, quiet and peaceful. The staff was very friendly especially Amran. The room was comfortable, clean and very nice. I will definitely stay here if I have a chance to visit Venice again.

This hostel had a really cool roof. The bathroom was really dirty and shared by over 12 people. It is a little far from all of the action but then again you don't need more than one day in venice.

The hostel was fine. What I liled most was that it was close to St Mark's Square.

No breakfast included and the area is expensive. There are better options in Venezia. The place is nice though, and gives you independence. No credit card accepted :(

I had a nice stay, although I didn't stay much at the hostel. Basically, I just went back there to sleep ! The room and bed were nice, we had a working (but leaking) air-conditionning which was great considering the heat. Location is good, far from the station, but near the city center (Piazza San Marco, etc), so it was quite easy to go back to the hostel even late at night. The personnel was very kind and helpful. Commodities were basic but sufficient. All in all I was very happy with my stay!

It was extremely hot the night I spent in Venice and they only had 1 fan set up in the room, which only reached the bottom bunks. And they gave us each duvets! They only have AC in the reception for themselves (the staff). There's only one washroom for everyone upstairs to share. The kitchen is very small. Other than a room, washroom, and small kitchen, there is nothing else at the hostel. No other facilities. The only thing I can say is the staff is friendly and nice, and the location is great.

This is a typical Venetian hostel in the sense that it isn't purpose built or anything like that, in fact its much closer to an unconverted apartment block. The atmosphere is quite relaxed, and there are minor cooking/fridge facilities and an incredible rooftop terrace. No air-conditioning it should be mentioned, but otherwise a great place to stay with a good location about 10 minutes from St. Mark's and close to the Arsenale Vaporetto stop. A bit tricky to find it, but its ok.

If there would be less beds - and no bunk beds - in the room on the 4th floor room, it would have been even better. It was a bit crowded and by lack of a 'lounge room' the only place to sit was on the terrace - which had a fenominal view. But still, when the terrace closes after 10pm, there's nowhere to go except outside, or to bed. Further, bunk beds are only acceptable at a low price, so therefore I found this hostel relatively expensive. Just one bathroom was not enough.
