Good place to stay, the only complaint I have is that they don't have any reading lights or power plugs near in the beds. Besides that everything was perfect.

Stayed at this B&B for 3 nights and it was very nice! Didn't feel like a normal budget hostel, more like a shared apartment! Initial entrance was difficult as we were not sure how to get in but we called up and we're told to ring the il castello 'fashion line' buzzer and get the elevator to the 1st floor. Location is very central, the beds were comfy and everywhere was very clean and well kept! Had a lovely stay here, would stay again!

It will do for a night stopover though it is hard to class this as a typical hostel, nice and clean though lack on a proper chill out area a disappointment. If you are arriving after 7pm you would want to give this place a miss as no one in reception after this hour. Showers are great and staff friendly but the breakfast included offer term to be used loosely as it's basically 2 slices of toast and coffee. local teenagers hang out outside the entrance, no intimidation just usual kids stuff

I only stayed for one night, but it was an overall good stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Their maps are not the best and finding the hostel might be tricky, but you just have to look at the number on the street. Facilites are very good. Breakfast is simple but good. You can reach it walking from the train or bus station in 20-25mins and very close to city center. They give you a handful of keys

There was a perfectly functioning kitchen with was locked and we were not allowed to use ! It said staff only - there were only 2 staff members at any one time! Also no refrigerator ! These things and some of the staffs attitude detracted from the whole experience. Otherwise it would have been a lot better. Don't be so strict and let the guests use the kitchen just as ALL other hostels. !

Very clean hostel. The staff were very friendly and a great location. Negatives were only two bathrooms on my floor but spotlessly clean, and the price, but everything is expensive in Venice...

It is a bit hard to locate the hostel. You have to remember the number (Number 4) at El Castello as there is no sign on the wall. It offer simple breakfast and the dorms there are big enough It also provides a big locker for each guest. You need to open the main door with a key, then the door on 1st floor with another key and then your room with another key ( often the room is not locked in the day). there is enough security for the hostel but you need to carry a big bunch of keys.
