The host Luca is super friendly and helpful in giving me the tips to travel around in Venice. I would say Luca's house is like many other hostels, it is clean, with facilities like free wifi, a pantry, nearby supermarket, hair dryer, washing machine. What differentiates Luca's one is certainly the excellent hospitality services which would make your journey a memorable one. Highly recommend for people who would like to know more about the Italian culture.
My husband and I stayed in a private room during our stay. The hostel is more like a house, but the man who owns it is very friendly and helpful. He was in the hostel and available most of the time, but at times when he wasn't around we didn't know where to go or who to ask if we needed something. The hostel offered basic services and is a good option if you're looking for something cheap and basic for a few nights. It's about a 20 minute bus ride from the actual island, but buses are frequent.
Great place to stay, bus was really easy to catch into Venice.
This is a small private residence with most of the bedrooms rented to guests. it is very very convenient for Marco Polo airport; but is therefore not in Venice itself and is a 20 minute bus ride to Piazzale Roma. I guess it offers good value if you don't want to stay in Venice and pay the associated prices. Some may not appreciate the feeling of detachment though.
Very convenient location for people flying out of VCE. Ample bathrooms and toilets. Luca is very helpful and provides lots of information that is clear and easy to understand. Location is in safe neighborhood. I had a very pleasant stay.
Great place to stay if you have a late or early flight as it is a 5-10 minute walk from the airport and it is 20 minutes bus away from Piazza de Roma. Luca was very helpful with tips from a local about Venice.
Very happy we stayed here :) Luca was a very kind person who accommodated our every needs. The house was very comfortable I had a wonderful sleep. Thanks so much for your hospitality!
Maps were super helpful! Luca made awesome recommendations. If need to stay near the airport but want an easy trip into Venice this is perfect
As advertised, the Venice Lagoon House is not in the centre of Venice. However, buses are regular, cheap (Euros 1.30) and the stop is 2 minutes walk. Luca is a fantastic host. He speaks great english and is more than willing to help with any aspect of your trip. I even got to hang my washing in the fresh Venetian air (such an improvement on the machines)! Rooms are a good size and not a bunk in sight!
For three people to have a private room only about a 15 minute bus ride from Venice, this was a great price and a lovely place to stay. The owner is extremely friendly, helpful, and thorough. We enjoyed hanging out here for two nights, enjoyed the breakfast pastries at the shop by the bus stop, and a chance to drink wine and relax.
It was amazing ! Luca was very very friendly and kind and he gave all information we needed to travel Venice. He also helped us in many ways and it was very clean and location was also good close to the airport and was very convenient to go anywhere. We are very satisfied. Thank you Luca! It was pleasure to stay in your accommodation.

It was a good place to stay at. Just wish it was free breakfast. Besides that I liked it.
Our stay at Venice Lagoon House was one of the biggest highlights of our stay in Venice. Luca allowed us to check in early and he offered us lots of tips about where to eat, the major sights to visit, and was very thorough during his explanations. He was the friendliest host we have ever had and made sure that the rooms were clean and that anything we needed was provided upon request, including towels. It was a different experience than a typical youth hostel, but I highly recommend VLH!
If you want to get on a flight early in the morning this is the place to stay. Not if you want to head into Venice Island. Host was great and VERY helpful.
The hostel was good but way out of the way from everything. Not enjoyable to catch a bus all the way out there and back into the city. Friendly staff though.
Luca is very nice guy. The location is pretty good, very close to Marco Polo airport and only a 25 min bus ride (1.30 euro) to either the island or the mainland.
Good times. Ultra convenient from the airport and on into Venice proper. Stay here.
Luca was absolutely phenomenal. The directions he gave us to the hostel from the airport were spot on, and he was extremely helpful with transportation and things to do on the island of Venice. The location of the hostel is about 20 minutes by bus from the island, but it was not a problem at all and even helped to be away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist attractions. Super nice, super clean, super genuine, stay with Luca and the Venice Lagoon House.

Basic facilities but clean, convenient location with good connection tot venice and to the airport. Great value for money. Best feature is the host who does everything he can to make you feel at home and who had lovely tips to get the most out of our city trip. Thanks Gianluca!
