The wifi connection was shocking didn't even really see the point of having it but I was prepared for this as I had read some reviews. It was great that they had a fully working kitchen with oven and stove top cause it saves a bit of money to cook your own food. Other then that was so okay, nothing special. Was also nice that it was on the seperate island as it was very quiet and nice.
Being away from the main island was not so bad. Venice is spread round so its useful to get a water bus pass anyway. It was also cheaper to eat out on the separate island & had a supermarket nearby. Kitchen was big but not the cleanest. Friendly atmosphere as many groups gathered and cooked/played chess in the evenings. Room was spacious with walk in wardrobe & big en suite. However it was not nice to find dead mosquitoes scattered around the room on arrival even though the windows were closed.
The showering facilities were ok, could have definitely been cleaner. There was no atmosphere what so ever in this hostel so if you're looking to make friends I'd suggest go elsewhere. Can end up quite expensive to go over to the main island by the ferry. I had no help from the man in reception when I asked where tickets for the ferry were. No recommendations on food, tours or anything. Not helpful at all! The wifi dropped out and you had to log back in constantly also.
