Hotelo is a no-frills hotel that gives you all the things you really need. Comfortable bed, nice towels, clean towels each day, locked front door. Location is right by train station and we saw it out the window as we took the T1 from the other train station. Then we just had to turn ourselves around to figure out how to get back to what we saw. Staff takes your key during the day, not sure why, but no problems with that. Area feels a little unsafe at night but everything was fine.
Very clean, tight quarters, affordable. shower and sink in bedroom with toilet down the hall. very economical use of space. automated lights, otherwise kind of dark and cell like, but nice window opening out onto the street. traffic noise. works fine. easy walk to old town and lake. kitchen to share, assorted outdoor areas with chairs and tables for gathering.
Spectacular location. Very homey place with many rooms to relax in. Amazing view from every angle. Highly recommend it. Staff very friendly and helpful.
This felt luxurious after other hostels. It is true that that the train is right in the backyard. So you cannot sleep with the window open but there is good AC. Bathroom and towels very luxurious. Bedroom very comfortable. Breakfast was great with a coffee machine to get any kind you want. Roberto was so welcoming and helpful. Easy walk to the city. very spacious.
We walked ALL over Venice and it turned out that our favorite area was where this hostel was. It IS hard to find, but then everything is hard to find in Venice. Allow lots of time to find it from the train station and try to be on time for your estimated arrival.Such a wonderful bustling sound out the living room window. Our room had a window looking right onto someone else's balcony but some solid grating kept their cat out. Beds were somewhat lumpy and towels scratchy, but still we loved it!
We loved it here. Fabulous location. Hard to find at first, just a small plaque outside the door and a doorbell that says rooms for rent, but very friendly staff waiting to greet us. Big towels waiting on our beds, very nice bathrooms. We were on the second floor-they had rooms on another floor also but we didnt see them. The woman there gave us a map and told us all the good places to see. The entryway is funny and dark with a tiny elevator, but very welcoming inside. Big thumbs up.
