The only good aspect of this hostel was the location- as it's actually on the island of Venice. Albeit hard to find. Terrible wifi that you have to constantly resign in to. Poor atmosphere, and rooms that rarely locked. Good lockers that you can fit all your stuff into. Cleaners come into your room at 9.30 in the morning, only one shower between many people and you are expected to check out between 9 and 9.30am. Would not come back here

Great location

This was probably the best value accommodation we could find in Venice during our time there (September). We loved the fact that we could have our own room. The shared bathrooms were very good, although the showers may need a bit of work - fix doors & seals, but this didn't spoil our stay. We found the place to be very clean and neat. We didn't use the kitchen, but this looked tidy and well kitted out. The wi-fi access was erratic, but i don't know if this was due to proximity to the router.

Very clean, simple check in, a bit difficult to find. Great location in the city, well worth the money.

Really good hostel in a nice location in venice as opposed to somewhere outside of it. i met some nice people but it wasnt incredibly social. one lady in our room snored as loud as an alarm clock all night... kitchen facilities were well equiped and clean

its good! clean, quiet and nice outdoor space. the indications to reach it are quite difficult to follow as the street's name is not the on'es mentioned but via daniele..

The lockdown between 10-16 is absurd and bizarre! Of course cleaning is necessary but no reason the guests should leave because of that. Also the rooms don't realy close and the lock we rented for the locker could be opened by other keys!:/ Apart from that, staff are nice, kitchen is great and pasta

dear zohar, are you sure you are talking about our hostel? we don't serve pasta, and we don't provide lock for the lockers, we have closets with keys to secure personal items. all rooms can be locked by keys, and each guest has his own key. we clean daily from 10 am to 2 pm... asking clients to give us space and time, without lockdown.... the manager

Easily reached by the bus station/train station. The hostel is in an alright location, away from the noise on the street and within walking distance to most things. Not too many facilities but everything was clean. The lockout is kind of frustrating but they do declare it on the site and at the front desk. Two major complaints I had were the locks on the lockers not working (for any of the lockers in my four person room) and the fact that the lock on the room door makes a huge amount of noise.

Cheapest hostel in Venice. Always enough guests for them, so they feel no need to improve service. Everything is very basic. We had some (scary) insects in our dirty room. After a complaint the hostel reacted correctly and changed the dirty cheats. The rest of the room remained dirty and dusty. The staff was friendly though :) oh and don't use google maps to find the hostel, unless you fancy a swimm. The directions lead you to a place where there used to be a bridge.

We got a good time there. The facilities were good, the staff was very friendly and it is almost located in the heart of Venzia. It was at night the most quiet hostel I ever stayed.

Great hostel. Located in the less touristy part of town with nice restaurants nearby. It is run by students as part of a religious student residence. The 12:30am lockout was no problem as Venice doesn't have a nightlife! Highly recommended.

Its not the easiest to find, but after you found the hostel, you are being welcomes by the super friendly and helpful people at the front desk. I found it really funny that they give you a city map, after you just feel like you already looked in every street for the hostel :)

Staff were a great help, rooms are ok, ventilation in rooms could be better. Easy to get toand from the trainstation. Pretty good price for the location and overall in genral.

Everything is very basic (no warm blankets; lockers not working; map of the city is bad), but nothing very bad. And if you want to live on the main island of Venice, and avoid paying hungreds of euros, you can't be picky :). So this place is quite ok. As a special plus - big rooms and 1-level beds far from each other.

dear natalia please let us underline, we normally don't provide blankets in august since in venice it s very hot, but if guests ask for it we hand them easily! lockers work, if your didn't you could have told the reception and we would have immediatly solved the problem! our maps are free and very useful with several indications.. normally our guest appreciate them! expecially if you consider how much they cost in the city.... the manager

It was in the PERFECT location. Some hostels were located on the islands but this one was close to everything. People seemed to keep to themselves for the most part so there is less of a community vibe. Bathrooms have no soap or towels with limited lighting but everything is kept neat and clean.

Location is pretty convenient, not too far from the train station, however the road leading to the hostel does get quite dark at night. Room is decent but not fantastic, and wifi is only available in lobby. But they allow free printing of boarding passes which is really useful.

Didn't like the kitchen, the toilet was broken. Other facilities are good:)

It's in Venice, not Mestre where most people stays due to prices. I think it's the best you can get with a good location. The hostel is great, just not clean enough for me. There is a good kitchen, but too much people, so it can't stay clean. The same for the baths. But still recommend, if you want a bed (the rooms are good) and don't mind that much with the cleanness, so it's the right place for a good price!

Hostel was fine no real complaints except for the fact there is a 12:30 curfew. Very quite mellow hostel if you are looking for a more social fun atmosphere i would look elsewhere otherwise a fine hostel.
