I enjoyed my stay at Ca' Venezia. It's been the end of the season so it was also pretty quiet but calming (which was good!) at the hostel. I think for this well-situated location in super-famous Venice is a good recommendation - also excellent location to visit the art biennale. Generally I liked the simplicity of Ca' Venezia, usually i don't want more. ok, maybe some more internet possibility (speed?). For this the price is quite fair. Good Luck!
Place didn't have a warm vibe, but Bulu was extremely nice, and Aram was helpful too. The guy who banged into the room at 8:30 in the morning so he could clean it - even though checkout wasn't until 1030 or 10am - was not as nice. As long as they're keeping the beds and everything else clean, then this hostel should suit functionally, if not always be the most warm and fun and quaint place to be.
amran is a super amzing host! we came in super late in the night due ot gps error and he still was very welcoming. he met us in the San Marco square and walked us to the hostel. hostel is very close to the san marco and accademia. grand canal waterbus is efficient, stay away from private watertaxis as they can charge whatever they please
Staff tells you how to get everywhere in Venice and provides you with a map and proper routes! Place was very clean. No lockers but I felt safe in a locked four bedroom. No breakfast but there are lots of delicious restaurants nearby, just a bit pricey (as is all of Venice).
Bed Bugs!!! Bed Bugs!!! Bed Bugs!!!! It has cost my girlfriend and I a lot of time and money once we left after just one night. It's been days and we are still covered with bites. It has cost us over €100 and we still nee to pick up items from the dry cleaner, not to mention the items we lost either throwing out or destroying when we had to wash absolutely EVERYTHING! When I emailed the hostel yesterday, they acknowledged they knew that they had a problem. How can you do that people. AVOID!

The only negative point is the cleanness, the blankets in the bed were dirty. When I complained about that, the staff told me they can not wash the bedsheets everyday.. So, I wander how many people had used that blanket before me and they did not washed it.
The owner is great and goes above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. He's funny, and very knowledgeable about Venezia and good places to go. The hostel has a cool roof patio and the facilities are great. I personally didn't like Venezia, but this would be a great place to stay nonetheless. There's not a big social/party atmosphere, and its kinda tough to get to from the train station, but overall, I'd stay here again.
Its like an apartment. Each room has its own bathroom and shower and a kitchen and livingroom. The staff is great, the owners run the place. Thank you Amran!!!
Very nice hostel. We felt safe and comfortable. There is a kitchen for every room and a supermarket really close. We would definitely stay there again.
I was eaten alive by bed bugs staying there for only one night. It was awful and nobody else should stay there and have to deal with the bug bites. I am still scratching these awful bites three days later. It was the worst place I have ever stayed.
The tips at the arrival were very good. Mr Amran knows where is everything on the island and is very helpful. The room on the building beside the hostel and the cleanliness are excellent for a hostel. Could offer breakfast.

I would not recommend this place to solo female travelers. The notorious reception like to touch and even massage shoulders without permission! I don't feel safe staying in this place. He told me there was no supermarket nearby but there was just one 5 mins walk. I did not see any female housekeeper at all and only foreign male workers. They will just walk to your ensuite kitchen, bathroom through the door. Mosquitoes in room. No lockers, Internet not working. I can't wait to leave this place!
Firstly I arrived at Ca Venzia only to be taken to another youth hostel down the road which was run by the dodgiest people I've come across. I heard them charge 6 different people varying amounts who were staying in the same room for the same number of nights. The facilities at the youth hostel were terrible I could not wait to leave!

Good location. Staff friendly & helpful. Accommodation is like small separate flats with kitchen/diner, small bathroom (tiny tiny shower!) and dorm. You hear everything from each part of the flat!!
i such I nice hostel, the owner, Amran, I such i nice guy, I love this place.
Amran was an amazing host! So welcoming and helpful. Couldn't have asked for a better host. The atmosphere there was also fantastic. Very friendly and social. We even had dinner there for two nights, with other travellers. One of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. Really recommended.
Great location very close to st marks square, very noisy on top level, next time I would ask to be put on one of the lower levels as it's noisy all night from the streets and people on the balcony. Owner is lovely and able to help with anything and everything you would want in Venice. It was fine for a night but I wanted somewhere quiet just to sleep for a night and this wasn't the place
Loved that the dorm was small. Kitchen and bathroom were new and kept clean. Staff were helpful and friendly. Excellent location.
i made booking in this hostel because was 3 euro for night, then they called me saying that is 30 euro for night and i say that i don t go. so, i spent money of booking and commition for nothing.
