It was an average bed and breakfast- more expensive because it was in a really great location. The location was great because it was less than a 5 minute walk to a bus stop to the main island of Venice and less than a 10 minute walk from the train station. The only down side to the location was the park described in the other comments- I was with 6 other 18-24 year old girls and we did not walk on the right side of the road going to the hostel at night because of the men that hung out at park.

To be outside of the main island of Venice is not ideal but does save you some money! However, I did not feel safe walking back at night from the train station which was only 5 minutes away, this was due to the park beside the B&B which always had people in it and one night a man was kicking lampost very angrily and shouting! Also the cleanliness of the bathrooms was very poor. However the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was great!
Staff not very friendly, we herd them arguing with another customer and was very rude. Breakfast was poor, warm milk for cereal, very poor quality ingredients. Electricity kept cutting out and we were told we cannot use the plug sockets for a long time because it will cut all the power. Ripped and damaged bedding, dirty women's bathroom, poor pressure for the shower. Shall I continue?
Good Hostel in a good location near the station to get to Venice
Hostel workers absolutely rude. They behave like a slave to you. They don't introduce themself and You can't be sure who is hostel employees. In midnight somebody come to my room and try to open my bags. When I little wake up, he ran from room. Other day, I've asked hostel receptionist about this and he said don't worry. This place is really insecure. Baths, WCs really dirty and not enough for people. You have to wait for using them. In my opinion, don't stay this place. Find another one.
The Hostel was very clean. the room was great with Air conditioner and TV and the beds were comfortable. However, the breakfast was quite minimal, and the WiFi is quite slow. The location is convenient while the surrounding of the hostel is average and it can be hard to find as there is no banner in front of the building. In summary, it is a good value for money.
Location right by Mestre train station (NOT S. Lucia), which is a 10 min train ride into the main island. Triple private room was clean and spacious, and breakfast was good. Bathrooms were also clean. Not sure why there are so many horror stories on Tripadvisor but I guess they've improved the place? Only downside is it is very quiet with no common space.
There was no common room or sitting area to use after check out at 10 AM. Steep stairs and no elevator.
The good thing is that the hostel is very close to the train station and minutes from Venice (St. Lucia) by bus or train. It's in a quiet area with a supermarket and some restaurants.
