Very usefull if you are looking for a place near the train and bus station. We got there in less than 5 minutes. Wifi was not working and they are lack of services... Don't have towels, breakfast or kitchen. You get what you pay for. Obtienes lo que pagas.


Don't expect the room pictured in these photos on hostelworld. The place is a little more messy and disorganized.


Hostel is so bad. Operators aren't İtalian and they aren't respectful. I don't ever seen bad operator. We payed all price of reservation, it wasn't problem fisrt entrance but later they wanted extra money, they told us 'we wrote wrong price'. they have to tell more before but we didn't tell anything. they are so dishonest

The bathroom, inside the room and outside the rooms are absolutely disgusting. The mold and fungi that grow in them is ridiculous and the shower is all cold water, the location is excellent but everything else is awful. The staff are not polite and to get wifi you have to stay in the very small main lobby, but it is impossible to make a call to anyone due to the staff skyping their friends and being unspeakably loudy. Overall i would say if its a last resort stay here. Otherwise go elsewhere.

The hostel is very far from the touristic part of the city which makes it pricey for what they offer.


It's perfectly placed just 2 minutes away from the Mestre train/bus station, which is a huge advantage, especially if you have a lot of luggage. Definitely the cheapest hotel for that area, so if you're on a budget it's the best solution. Rooms were clean enough and rather spacious, though the bathrooms were pretty small.The staff were helpful and friendly, though not as proficient in English as one would hope. Overall it's a great choice for budget travelers and surely my go-to hotel in Mestre.

Great location near train station, with trains to the old Venice every 10 minutes. Good facilities in the room and good beds, however there were no lockers. There was no-one at the reception when we checked out, despite saying there was a 24 hour reception, so we had to just leave our key and go. Fine for what we needed for a one night stay though!


It was SO UGLY, SO DISGUSTING, SO SMELLY, SO DIRTY that I could NOT sleep there. And... it's in Mestre, you should be explicit about it. Venice is Venice, Mestre is Mestre. Is it hard to make a little bit of maintenance? To paint the walls? Man, that was the worst I've seen in my life.


Staff does or speak very little English and not all reception team members so be aware plus twice they walk in the room without knocking. Location just few minutes off the main train station-Venice Mestre Security well anybody could just walk in and not been questioned where the person is going to... therefore Atmosphere is quite hindered. Cleanliness well could be better for an hotel, as for hostel acceptable. Quite pricey so not the best value for money but the cheapest option I found.


there was a safty parking (important in venice), but it was very small and we must have given our car keys to the reception.


Basic hotel outside of venice. No air con just a fan. The shared bathroom was reasonably clean. Location is great though. 3 minute walk from station to travel into central venice everyday! Very basic. No atmosphere.


should put mosquito net on windows 'cos i was bitten by mosquitoes


This is one star hotel. Bathroom required a restoration (big time), wasn't too clean. Room needs a restoration too. Staff barely speaks in English (they are from India). Internet was barely working. Parking is in backyard, quite tight but secure, cost 10e/day, which is cheaper than on the street. Close to train station.


Mold on the ceiling, dirty bathroom,, parking was not included even though it said it on the page


Just what you need: bed and shower. Not specialy clean nor wekcoming. But next to the train station linking to venesian island.

Man behind the counter doesn't seem to like his job much which is not very welcoming nor does it give the guest a good impression of Venice. No lift, hard job carrying heavy suitcases up to the 3rd level. very impersonal place.


Not very bad, didnt have any problems, if u want a cheap stay this is a suitable place. But dont expect much ;)
