Very nice place, near the train station and in the heart of Venice. Actually, this is not a hostel, it is an apartment which they rental the dorms. The bedroom is very clean, the stuff so kind what make you feel home. I truly recommend them.


The hostel was clean, and the staff was fine. My only recommendation is to update the directions on how to get to the hostel because the instructions were very very confusing. Also, the website stated the staff was bilingual but communicating was also difficult. Other than that, it was a nice place.


The hostel is located close to the train station which was a key feature I was looking for in my search. One thing that always concerns me when looking to book is security, but I definitely felt my belongings and myself were safe at this hostel. The room was spacious. The only thing was that it was a little hot with only a fan and the open windows to cool the room down. My stay at this hostel was enjoyable.


This hostel was a dream! Everything I would expect from a more expensive hotel. Great location, close to the train and bus stations. Our room and bathroom were very clean, and the staff were very friendly. Wonderful experience!


Extremely safe and clean!


The staff of the hostel is amazing, so lovely and nice. Willing to help with anything. The Room is amazingly surprising by Value for money. The only disadvantage I could find is the lack of AC. I HIGLY RECOMMEND TO SATY THERE!

Boutique hotel was on the main island of Venice, which is a plus. Most affordable ones will require a train ride outside of the island. Within 10 minute walking distance to the Santa Lucia train station as well. Location is in a quiet area of the island so sleeping at night will not be a problem. You needed to go through 3 secured access points so it was nice feeling safe, even though Venice isn't exactly dangerous. It was a great value given the cost and location. Would stay here again.


Fantastic location! I would definitely stay here again. The staff were lovely and very helpful! The rooms were very spacious. It's definitely not a conventional hostel - it appears to be more like someone's apartment who's renting out a few beds, but I liked this. It felt very homely!


the guest house is approximately 15 walk from centrale station and 25 mins walk to the centre venice. the rooms were clean and tidy including the bathrooms. Overall it is a nice place to stay my only disappointment; i have not met the manager of the hostel on arrival except the room cleaner who didnt speak much english except italian . Therefore i wasnt able to ask them any questions re venice's tourist attractions or recommendations.


We were greeted by a very sweet woman who spoke English. We felt very welcomed and each got a bottle of Prosecco! Everything was so clean. The room came with a breakfast tray with croissants and coffee. The decor was adorable. Everything about our stay was perfect except as we were checking out, we dealt with a very rude woman who could not speak English.


Such a cute place! Was welcomed with champagne and chocolate, then given a map and shown where all the sights are


Staff was VERY nice and accommodating. The "hostel" (although it's really just an apartment with i think two rentable rooms) is a good 20 minute walk from San Marco square. Had a great stay, but Venice was HOT when I was there and there are no ACs, just fans, so keep that in mind before booking. Otherwise, a great place to stay if you're looking to keep away from crowded backpacker hostels!


The blonde lady at the reception (I can't remember her name) was so sweet and so welcoming. The location of the hostel couldn't have been better. Made the trip so worthwhile!


Beautiful place, nice and clean, right in the middle of Venice! Would definitely recommend!


Will definitely come back. Great location. Very safe, near everything. Very clean and nice!


We loved Dimora Il Veliero Romantico and would definitely recommend it and our lovely host! We were offered prosecco on arrival and were given a small bottle of it and Bellini to keep in our room fridge! Lovely! The room was a great size and we received lots of recommendations on places to visit and things to do. We would definitely stay here again! The bathroom for our room was not attached to the room, but was private, which was fine with us.

Excellent location, great staff, spacious, quiet, clean.


I loved the large room. However, my roommate and I had to wonder (with this price per night) #1 Can they afford regular beds instead of 2 sofer beds? #2 Can they afford a small table and 2 chairs? It is because they provide an electric kettle and tea cups but there is neither a common room nor a table to have tea... Also, they can attach a hair drier on the wall of the bathroom. Many inexpensive hostels offer a small table, chair, and hair drier at least.


Best welcome I have ever gotten in a hostel. Very friendly staff and excellent room.


Very friendly owner and helpful. I've stayed in hostels and even lived in some all over the world for a good number of years in this was one of the very best I've ever seen. Just the fact that I'm taking the time to write this review speaks for itself since I never bother with this sort of stuff. One thins though is that the place is very tranquil and small so if you're the kind of person that wants to meet others and hang out in the hostel its not going to happen.
