A little hard to find. On getting off atv boat at Ca' D'Ora turn right towards Rialto bridge. At first bridge by gondalos follow path (along canal) to left past restaurant. Its the last house facing you. state credit cards accepted as all hostels Ive stayed there - only take cash. Wonderful owner and cant fault the place other than not having a kitchen/crockery to make food as Venice very expensive and though local to coop couldnt use much! Has microwave and fridge though.

Beware: they may over charge you (as they did me). I thought I would get it cleared up the next day when the staff came in, however, they never came in until 10:00 PM (no staff all day). They did have wi-fi, but for what they charged and all the hassle - it was not worth it.

There was no air conditioner. The room was really warm and no lock for the room. Lockers were available though.

The security was bad-On the inside it is a dark and kind of scary looking walkway that leads to multiple different homes/businesses including this hostel. You had to trust your other hostel travelers to lock the door after they came in. (Never happened). You could hear any movement or sound anyone made at all hours of the night. There was no real staff- if you had questions or wanted advice about city-nope. The wifi did not work! The hostel was very poorly maintained but the bathrooms were nice.

The location is okay, everything is within walking distance but so is everything else in Venice. It was incredibly hard to find, there wasn't even a sign on the building. You have to walk past all the restaurants to get to the entrance, and if you're checking in late then you have to walk through a spooky corridor to find the door. No one is ever in reception unless someone is checking in. There wasn't much of an atmosphere. It's a place with a bed for the night, don't expect anything mo

Make sure to check your email after booking your accommodation. They send a follow up asking when you will be arriving and if you don't respond, you'll end up sitting outside a creepy alley way for who knows how long since they aren't always there. Otherwise the all girls room was nice. Came with large locked wardrobes. Only two bathrooms... So that kinda sucked sometimes. But they're nice bathrooms. Also, no designated common room to meet people.

The location of Emerald's Place is great depending on what you want from your stay in Venice. It is easily accessible from the water bus, and only 25min walk from Piazzale Roma. It is away from the tourist hot spots which was perfect for us. The price was very reasonable for a last minute stay in Venice. Emilio was a kind host also. The place does not have a typical hostel feel - no communial space etc. But if you want a basic bed for the night in an interesting building, this is great.

Our room was 5 single beds behind a tenporary wall. No window for a breeze which in summer is needed. There is a lockable cupboard for your things. One PowerPoint for the dorm and some extension cords. There are 2 bathrooms so you use them when you can. There is a washer but no dryer. We were lucky to be able to hang our things to dry in the storage room. Mr Emilio is lovely. Other staff member knows nothing about the facilities. I asked her about washinng. Ask the boss. no breakfast as state

I would stay here again! But, the price is a lil bit expensive for the facilities! There's no air condition or vending machines! And there's no lock on the room door either! But the location, the cleanliness and the kindness of Emilio worth it! There's only two bathrooms, so you must use it wisely and in the right hours!

Just not great. Not very clean, there were only two bathrooms which guests had access to which made showering and cleaning in the morning really difficult. The location was very convenient but I wouldn't stay here again.
