In general hostel is ok. But if you need an internet connection it's a bad choice. Internet works only in reception area which is open not all the time ( 9-12 and 15-20), so if you need to work at other time - you can only sit outside. And it was extremely cold in the room, heater worked only at night time (about 10 pm to 5 am) Staff was nice, but couldn't really fix your problems. If you have one - it is only you problem :) As a plus - room was clean and big. And they have unlimited coffee:)

The double room we took with its private bathroom was perfect for a couple. Everything was clean and ok. Staff was perfect. It was quiet, maybe too quiet. There was not a warm and welcoming atmosphere like in a classical hostels. It looked like more a cheap hotel than a festive hostel.
This hostel was a great quiet place to return to after a long day of sightseeing. The atmosphere was a lot quieter than some of the other hostels that I've been to in the past but it was still a great place. It's in a nice convenient location.
Walkable from Venezia Santa Lucia. No security. There was not a hanger in the room and leave apart the thought of a locker. Extra payment for check in after 8 and after 9 you cant as hostel staff vanishes. Hostel staff take frequent breaks and if your luggage is locked in, you have to let go of something to catch a train or a flight
Loved it. Easy to find (I thought), a little pricey by any other standards but pretty good for Venice, actually; would have been nice to have breakfast included and the wi-fi just requires a little patience, but on the whole a really cool location and a wonderful stay. Just keep in mind the hours for reception
The hostel itself was ok, but the common room closes at 8pm in the evenings and it's the only place you can get internet, (no internet in the rooms), so it definitely limits your options if you need to get online.

The staff were very helpful, the facitlies fantastic and comfortable. I highly recommend this place.
Very easy to find as it's just one street off the main street from the train station. It was a little inconvenient having the common room close at 8pm. Overall, it was a nice place and I met some great people staying there as well. Nothing above and beyond, but very good for the money.
Probably the best location you'll find for under 20€ a night, only short walk to piazza San Marco. The beds were comfy enough
If you are looking for a quite place to live in Venice, then this is the one. But it was way too difficult to find the hostel at night, it took me a while. And the reception wasn't a 24-hour one,.after 9pm they would also shut down the lobby so it was not that convenient.
This was the worst hostel I have ever been in. During the winter they have horrible hours. Someone came in and hour before close and the girl complained the whole time because she had already put everything away. The bathrooms were dirty, bugs came up front the sink. There was no curtain in the bathroom so people walking by could see you pee. And the sheets had black hairs all over them. It was a very sketchy hostel and I felt unsafe, we made sure we were only ever there to just sleep and leave.
This was the WORST hostel I have ever stayed in. Bugs crawled out of our sink, bed linens had black hairs all over them. No AC. And NO curtain on bathroom window-you can see right in cause it's ground level. Got in at 530 AM and was told the receptionist desk and common room are only open at 9-12 and 3-8. Can't meet new friends, and wifi you have to type in EVERY time your phone closes. I would never recommend this hostel to anyone. Please save yourself a crappy trip and book with another hostel
I enjoyed my staying at the hostel. The staff are friendly. The washroom and the toilet were clean. But there wasn't any soap provided in the washroom. And there are no kitchen facilities for cooking. All in all I would recommend this hostel as a good and not expensive place for staying in Venice.

I think it would be better if there were lockers in the room, as it was a shared facility.
The hostel is very nicely located and with good facilities. Staff always helpful and clear with the information given. I only missed a locker in the bedrooms, but I had no problem with my personal stuff left in the room.
Most helpful Staff etc- old fashioned and a bit institutionalised but very convenient location near the railway station.
The hostel is situated near one of the main roads in Venice, Strada Nuova. From there, it is easy to go anywhere around the island. The hostel is situated near an excelent pub called Il Santo Bevitore so, if you're planning just to check the city during the day and chill out at night, this is a perfect option of entertainment. The hostel is very clean and it is very beautiful on its own. I would recommend to all my friends going to Venice to stay on this one.
Great location, everything is nearby. Staff are lovely and very helpful.
Not a good bathrooms-to-guests ratio, but that's a common problem in hostels...
