Wifi was extremely poor. There was a drastic need for air conditioning


great rooms, very clean and comfortable, airconditioning is a major disappointment. We struggled to sleep with no aircon on the mide of venices weather. showers are small


If you want to get home late at night, stay the other side of the water as it took us an hour just to cross the water late at night. The fan they provide in the rooms is very poor, so in the rooms there is hardly any air and you will be sleeping in your own sweat.


The location was brilliant. A boat from the train station to Giudecca where you can see St Marks from the hostel. However staff, although friendly enough to smile, didn't engage with us in conversation or tell us about Venice at all; they even had a party without telling us. We expected it to be hot but the room was unbearable. Sleep was near impossible with the single small fan. Silverfish in the room & mould in the showers. The hostel didn't ruin Venice, but would advise staying elsewhere.


Our stay was cool because Venecia is cool. We didnt like the hostel. It was dirty all the time, the people from there were not friendly at all. We wouldnt stay at the hostel again. Beware that you have to take the vaporetto to go to the most tourist things in Venece so it gets more expensive than we tought. Besis


Showering facilities unisex and dirty. No air conditioning, meant window had to be open and we were bitten alive by mozzies.
