Well all in all I wouldn't advise staying here. We turned up having booked a 4 bed dorm and turns out they didnt even have one so we were told we had to sleep in different rooms. Because we complained we got them to move a bed into our room so on the end we were all in the same room. Our room did have an ending but the toilet seemed to be lacking half a toilet seat. The rooms were hot an noisy and to top all of this off on our first night there was a fire alarm which went off for a hour! AVOID!!


The place is amaizing, just take in acoount at leaste 45 minutes to go down town Florenica. Also, you need good condition to get to the maín office, its an 15 minutes walk, up the hill.


{it's cheap for Venice, and while it's far from downtown, the area is very beautiful.


This was the WORST hostel experience I have ever had. I have stayed in many hostels and this hostel was so disgusting that my friend and I opted to sleep on the floor instead of the beds. There were no sheets or toilet paper provided. We literally felt like we were in a prison staying at this hostel. We arrived late and left the second we could! In addition, it took us over an hour to find the place using the hostels directions! GOOD LUCK to anyone who decides to stay here... If you can...DON'T!

If you are idiot this is your problem!! And you are the worest Guest that we have had


Basically a dormitory converted into a hostel for the summer. Staff was okay but the price was too high for what you get, which is basically a place to store your stuff while you roam Venice. Worked as a last resort hostel. Decent common area outside for meeting people.


I've stayed in many different hotels and hostels this summer and this is by far the worst. The staff was very unfriendly and rude when we arrived and the next day. It sucks cause his house was nice and it had a great view. It should be written somewhere that this is not a hotel but an apartement/house.
