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...
Perfect location and easy to get to everything in Venice... No kitchen available during the off season. Clean but basic. No atmosphere in e hostel as it's a student accomodation which also has dorms for backpackers.
this is a very quiet hostel which is great if that is what you need but well located and comfortable. and it would nice if they could provide hand soap in the toilets
I sent an email to thank the staff of Ostello Santa Fosca for their kindness and good work.

It is a good hostel, but is not for backpackers. Dont have a young atmosphere for parties. If u just a need a place to sleep, go in, it is good for it.
Great place for the money inside Venice. You are like 40 mins away walking from san Marcos square. The place is fine but there is on kitchen for you to use, no fridge , not even a microwave. Plus no lockers in the rooms and only one shower for like 10 people. Still I recommend this place. Because we are talking about Venices crazy prices
