    Very well located and clean. As people are saying, the bathroom door doesn’t close. I guess it is not that hard for a hotel to fox it... Anyway, the overall experience was positive!

    Clean, good location, but old, and worn out rooms. I read the reviews before I came about the weird “give your key before you leave” policy and many people complained. It wasn’t a problem for me, seems to be the common policy around Venice (my girlfriend stayed at nearby hotel and they had same policy). Room could use some touch up paint (black markings all over walls) but bathroom was very clean. Front desk girl with dark hair and glasses was very very nice and helpful, as was breakfast lady.

    This is definitely a hotel rather than a hostel and you can certainly tell - it is lacking the atmosphere and facilities (e.g. communal kitchen / living areas) of a hostel. The staff were friendly but did not offer much in terms of recommendations / local knowledge of the area. The room was as expected, however the cleanliness could have been improved. There was a fair bit of mould in the shower that had obviously been building up over time. The location is good - it is next to the train
