Mr. Luca the owner was an absolute angel. He was very helpful and went out of his way to make the Venice Lagoon House a "home away from home". God bless him and all who enter his home.

The guesthouse is located a 5 min walk from the bus stop that takes you to Venice. 1.30 euro each way I think, which isn't too expensive and the bus comes every 15 minutes which is very convenient. Luca was a wonderful host, thanks for such a great stay! Next time I'm in Venice I will be staying here!


Luca makes you feel like you're staying with a friend, not at a hostel. It is a bit of a way into Venice but those who are budget concerned this is the way to go. Four buses per hour go to and from this location to Venice!


Good location right by the airport


Although the place is not on the actual island, it is extremely easy to get to by public bus (and is a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Venice). Luca was an excellent host, always available to help out when needed. The place is clean and comfy.


The hostel is a house runned by the owner, where he has a room to which he uses like the hostel. The owner, Luca, is very nice, friendly, and gentile. He is going to help you to explain where to go in Venice and other information like buses or where to eat nearby. Is important to arrive at the hour that you stayed, because if he is not home nobody will open you. Wifi is good, there are plugs in the rooms, sheets are cleam, batroom are clean as well.

Thank you for the pos review. But you wrote some incorrect info, rooms are three and it's quite easy to notice that. There is always someone at home waiting guests, in your case you arrived in the morning instead of the evening and I've been simply buying some milk here in the village making u wating about 5 minute, or less


Luca is awesome! Stay here and he'll make sure you get to see everything you want to see. It's a little outside of Venice but it isn't hard to get to and from the islands. One of my favorite places I've stayed.


After a week travelling (which yes, is very tiring for me) it was great to arrive here. Since the first moment I was there, Luca was very welcoming. I though it was going to be really difficult to get to Venice, but it was better that expected!! Besides, Luca gives all the information required (where to eat, where to take the bus and buy the tickets... all instructions really really clear). And the environment inside the house is great. I would totally recommend it!!!


Luca is really awesome. He went above and beyond what any other hostel owner has done for me. When I first got there and had questions about the local landmarks he actually sat me down and google mapped everything for me, and helped me identify everything. If I had any problems or issues he rushed to help without any hesitations. I was also traveling alone and he invited me out with him and his friends and considering how touristy Venice is it was nice to share an experience with the locals.

Hey!! thank you very much Lauren! I was missing a lot a 100% review! big hugs!


Very pleasant stay. as our flight got.in at 10pm we had trouble finding accom on the island that allowed later check in and also would be quick and easy after the flight. we walked from the airport in fifteen mins or you.could get a bus. this saved us money. its easy to find, very clean and the owner is very helpful and welcoming. there are restaurants and cafes near and the bus stop to venice is 1euro 30. we stayed the one night and were then on the island. it was perfect


Luca is extremely helpful and welcoming. For the price this is a great spot to stay, easy 1/2 hour bus ride into Venice and busses run every 20ish minutes. The rooms themselves were clean though one of the bathrooms was out of order during our stay- Luca kindly offered us a discount due to the fact. This is very much a house with rooms to sleep in, not much of a hostel feel but would definetly recommend for the price and for Luca's hospitality


Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! In our opinion the location is perfect. 10-15 min. walk from the airport and very easy to find. Located in a small lovely town with good restaurants, groceries, etc nearby. Easy 15 min. bus ride in to Venice. Much much easier than trying to find your hotel in Venice! The owner is awesome. Friendly, knowledgeable, very helpful. He shared his wine with us at night and hung out with him like friends. Big comfortable rooms, quiet. Would definitely stay here again!

Thank you very very much, it's very beautiful having nice couples like you here! One week after you have been here a group of 4 from Winnipeg like you! Hurrah for Winnipeg! :D


It was a nice stay in Venice lagoon House. Luca is a very warm and funny person and gave me all the information I needed in Venice. It might be a bit far away from the centre of Venice but you can take the bus for free if you get the pass for the Water bus, and the food is much cheaper around the hostel.


I really enjoyed my time at this hostel. My 2 roommates were friendly. The owner Luca was very accommodating and friendly. He goes over all the public transportaion and food options info with you..all very easy to follow. To get into Venice is a 20 min bus ride with I didn't mind at all. There is a kitchen for use. Everything was tidy. I really liked my bed and slept well. I will be staying here again when I return to Venice.
