friendly staff, internet occasionally disconnects from the girls dorm, clean linen, clean bathroom, blanket and heating, hot water (important this time of the year), close to main tourist street, supermarket, 20 min from train station (turn left when you see the statue in front of the church and look for a yellow 'hostel' sign), big wardrobe for each bed (can be locked), recommend staying there! however, travellers nowadays prefer smartphone than talking to each other :(
Awesome location - right at a canal, close to the railway station and all attractions. Staff is helpful and friendly. Rooms are spacious and clean. Value for money. Highly recommended!
The location is great because it is a straight shot from the train station, and fairly close to the Rialto Bridge. I didn't experience much of a good atmosphere, but it was very clean. The facilities are just fine, but the downside is that there is no kitchen. Which is a real shame because the hostel is very close to a couple of markets who have great food deals.
It was a good place to stay for a few days, the staff were helpful a nd the wifi was good. The direction to get to the hotels were a little hard to understand but I got there eventually. It's lose to the main attraction which was good but the rooms and the bathroom especially could use a update.
We were informed before our arrival that there would be a member of staff on the premises when we arrived, which was after 9 pm. However upon our arrival we waited for over a half an hour, calling and knocking on the door before someone was there to help us. The rooms were neat but old and the bathrooms were unappealing. However the location of the hostel was fantastic and the common area was comfortable.
Very nice hostel. Big room with comfortable beds. Located central, close to everything.

It´s a nice hostel, with great rooms, huge lockers, cheap breakfast, coffee and tea for free, but there´s no kitchen and no luggage room.
Nice, clean hostel with friendly staff and an excellent location. Located in an enclosed courtyard, 10 mins walk from the central railways station and 15 mins walk to Piazza S. Marco. Definitely worth the money!!
So cold hostel. Except that everything was good.
The Wi-Fi is horrible!!! May as well say that there is none. Had to reconnect every time I wanted to use the internet in my phone, and even then it hardly worked and would just disconnect instantly. The reception hours are not that helpful either. Once the reception is closed there is no where you can go to just chill out. Not bad for a night's stay but probably wouldn't suggest any longer.
Cons ; kitchen is available only in summer but you can use microwave and vending machines/ when reception is closed you can not use the lobby (which means you cannot get along with others nor eat something in the lobby at nights), Pros ; near to the grocery store or restaurants/ quiet place/ staffs are nice and willing to help/ there is a lock for each person in room/ room is big
Despite the friendliness of the staff, the reception open timings played a big role (9 - 12 am ; 3 - 8 pm. Check only till 7 pm).
Location was the best thing about this hostel. The map they give you is difficult to understand and I wouldn't of found the hostel if I didn't have my phone. The office hours are difficult as well. They lock everything up during different times of the day which was a problem for one group because their luggage was in the main room but it was locked and they had a flight to catch. Great location though. It's easy to walk to anything and its near a grocery store.
Receptionist was kind enough to wait for us (~1hour), due to train late schedule plus bad weather. For one night stay its very sufficient considering that's in Venice rather difficult to find affordable accommodation.
The hostel was in a really good location in Venice. What I didn't like was that the wifi signal didn't reach my room. Always had to go to the reception to connect. The only other thing I didn't like was the time that reception was open. From 9-12 and 3-8. Other than that, the beds were comfortable. I kinda liked it.

It is a really good hostel the place its really comfortable the only problem is that the room was a little bit cold but in general i recommend the hostal.
The location is pretty great, super close to the train station and not far from vaporetti lines that will take you to all the sights you want to see. Staff (Laura) was nice but main common room is closed often, so don't plan on using it much (
It is a good hostel,located right on the island,it is good because you can Just go out at night and you don't have to worry about public transport since you are already right on the island,i hated the lock out period,you have to leave the room at 9:30 am and stay out of the room until 12:30 for the rooms to be cleaned which is annoying. i loved the location but if you can find a hostel close to this one and if they don't have this lock out period i would choose it.
we were travelling 6 people and each of us liked the hostel. There was no problem in arrival. The staff woman is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are quite nice and clean. Had no problem. The common is big and good. Wifi is quite fast. Location is perfect too.
Great hostel! Very clean environment, helpful staff, and a good location. I appreciate that lockers were provided free of charge with the room key, but given the atmosphere I would've felt fine just leaving my stuff lying around. Definitely a great place to stay!
