Worst hostel I've stayed at in Europe. Gross, old building. The showers have bugs, the water stays cold, and the lights turn off after 2 minutes. It was so hot in the rooms it was unbearable, so you have to open the window and end up being eaten alive by mosquitoes all night. My girlfriend woke up with around 20 bites on 1 leg, still not sure if they are mosquitoes or bed bugs. Moved into a room with a/c after that, but they barge in, wake u up &turn it off at 2am. & DONT do the walking tour.
The hostel had literally been open for 2 weeks when I stayed there. Everything was brand new and clean. However they were very disorganized and should not have been open IMO. The wifi did not work AT ALL for our 3 night stay, extremely inconvenient. Hard to find wifi anywhere in Venice so I didn't talk to family for 3 days. Half the staff were nice and friendly, half were awful. Location is meh, on an island south of the main ones. Water bus is €7 one way. Will be a great hostel someday, not now
Great location, great staff, big lockers. Wifi wasn't very strong and was only in the common area but there were free computers. Rooms, showers, and toilets were all pretty clean. It was pretty loud on the streets at night so kinda tough to sleep if you're not a deep sleeper but the location was prime. There was a large group of school children (aged 13-16 ish) who were super loud, annoying, and very obnoxious so that was pretty bad, otherwise I had a good stay here.
Super clean, more like a hotel. Wifi was decent but you need to get one hour codes from reception which was kind of a bother. Close enough to the city centre by metro, about 15 minutes. You literally can see the hostel from the S Bahn platform, so it's literally a 30 second walk to the station but it is extremely loud late into the night because of trains. Overall this is a pretty good hostel but only if you are a deep sleeper, otherwise it is too loud to get a good sleep.
It's basically the same as camping, which I didn't mind and thought it was definitely a unique hostel experience. The staff were awesome, very friendly and helpful. The wifi was free but it was pretty lousy. Free breakfast was nice. The showers and toilets were surprisingly clean. More of a laid back atmosphere, there's a separate lounge for people to smoke in which was nice given that I don't smoke myself so I could stay away from it. The location wasn't great, gotta take a shuttle to the metro
