A great camping site with all I the basic facilities you need. The market is well fairly priced as is the restaurant. The atmosphere is great with many families present. It brought me back to the days of my own family holiday. 15/20 minutes bus ride form the main Venice town.
The only word I can describe this place is average, at least for a single traveler like me. Everything you might need is there, but there is nothing special about them. The showers were great I suppose. I booked a mixed cabin where there were only two beds. It was tiny, but good thing no one else booked the room, so I had the entire cabin to myself. If someone else were in there it would have been cramped. The walls were super thin though, so I could hear EVERYTHING from the cabin next to mine.
when we got there the sheets looked like they werent cleaned. During the night it gave out an eerie vibe in the camp since there was no light.

Very nice place. Far from city but convenient bus. Cabin room basic but enough. It was a 2 bed dorm but i had it all to myself. Toilets and showers super clean, hot water, even dryiers available. Dont recomend for solo travellers because it is really hard to meet anyone. But if you are trabelling in a group. Perfect! Specially for the price
stayed here 3 nights in a 2 man cabin and another night in a tent outside. location is about 40 minutes from venice itself, busses are every 30 minutes and jam packed. but the stop is right in front of the campsite so it's nice. wifi is 2 euro for 5 hours only in the wifi zone which is at the reception and restaurant. bathroom and showers are great! Like many others mentioned this place is full of mosquitoes! Downside is that the night buses around 9 till midnight are once every hour.
It's a normal camping. Nothing more, nothing less, exactly what we've expected.
We booked for a room with private bathroom but our private bathroom was locked the first night. The second day we managed to have the private bathroom but no warm water... Staff should be more communicative and helping.
My hostel was infested with spiders and full of mosquitoes. When we complained about the room they said "esta normale". Terrible service and their cleanliness is the worst I've seen in my life. The bed sheets and bathroom sink had hair on them along with stains. There were spiders on the pillow. Never coming here again...ever.

This is more of a family camping ground and I was traveling solo so it wasn't great for me but I had a room to myself and it was quite pretty. You have to pay for wifi which is ridiculous but it wasn't so expensive. Bus into Venice island was convenient but quite long 25 minutes. Staff weren't all that friendly or helpful no free maps or anything. Bathrooms were clean and everything else was fine, it just wasn't right for me
The lady working at the front desk was AMAZING. She was so helpful, kind, and informative. Not to mention the whole campground was amazing. The environment felt comfortable and safe and everyone was in great spirit. The cabin we stayed in was perfect, comfy bed, air conditioning, not too loud, and great shower! I was thoroughly impressed with this hostel.
The shared dorms are fine for cheap short term accommodation just outside venice. Reasonably clean for what you can expect at a camp site but they are in no way sound proof! You'll wake up when your neighbours do because it sounds like they're in the same room. There is only 1 power socket in the dorm. There are mosquitos about the place but just wear repellant and you'll be fine. The facilities were clean and in good working order. You have to pay for wifi though, €2 for 5 hours.
Nice enough place, its only a 30min bus ride from town. Decent resteraunt, good little shop too. Just take earplugs if you're staying in one of the small cabins, they're metal boxes connected to each other and you can hear everything going on...I got woken by someone plugging their charger in!
Frendly staff, bus stop in front of the camping, really nice place
First of all you have to bear in mind that this is a camping area not a hostel. Camping areas are supposed to be in the woods :D Friendly staff, but a little hard to find. At least if you are coming by bus from Venice. Double check the bus stop where you should take off.
It was a very good budget hotel. We enjoyed it, food was very cheap in the hotel too and especially bus ticket was an added advantage that you get in the Hotel premises.

The mosquitos ate us alive both nights, we really couldnt even go outside it was bad. It was inexpensive (as a backpacker that's what I was looking for primarily) but there's no AC in the double cabin we stayed in so the heat is unbearable and you can't open the door because the Mosquitos were awful. Wifi only worked at the front desk, and was an additional charge. It was about a 30 minute bus ride into Venice but the bus is right in front of the campground.
The bathroom was dirty, there were hairs and scraps of garbage and feces everywhere. Locks broken showers. They did not accept credit card and had to pay cash. The rooms were very small and uncomfortable. The supermarket on site was closed but always put it was open.
MUCH better than expected. In fact very good value for money. I stayed in one of the cabins and after paying the same amount for dorm rooms for so long, I thought this was luxury. Obviously quite far out from Venice - about 25 min on the bus, but the bus leaves right outside the gate, so it's no prob. There was a great crowd of young people there on the last night. Can be a bit hit and miss as a single traveller
