Want a unique hostel experience? Ostello S. Fosca is set by a canal in one of Venice’s biggest and oldest converted churches. You'll be able to seriously up your Instagram game with snaps of our atmospheric courtyard and ancient walls. Meet other travellers over food or a drink in our café, or head to the lounge for chilled TV and movie nights. If you're travelling here in the warmer months the outdoor seating area's perfect for al-fresco espressos.


We’re right in the heart of the city here – and a 15-minute walk to many of Venice’s most iconic sights, including St Mark’s Square and the Rialto bridge. It might be a cliché, but it's true: no visit to this city is complete without a gondola ride! Pick one up at the Rialto then, once you're satisfied with your selfies, head to the nearby food market for homemade pasta and local wine. If you’re arriving by rail, we’re a 15-minute walk from Santa Lucia Train Station. Grabbing a taxi from Venice Marco Polo Airport? It'll take around 25 minutes.

Rooms and Dorms

We have double rooms and mixed or female-only dorms, all of which are clean and airy. We'll supply fresh bed linen and you can hire a hairdryer if you haven't packed one. Bookworms will love the personal reading lights found by each bunk. When you head out, you can leave your valuables safe and sound in a secure locker or safe-deposit box.

Extras and activities

Catch up with fellow backpackers and exchange stories of your travels as you cook some Italian specialities in our kitchen. It's kitted out with an oven, hob and microwave so you can be as ambitious as you like. There's a fridge-freezer and plenty of washing-up space too. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hostel – ideal for updating Snapchat before you grab a free city map and head out for another day of exploring the narrow winding streets of Venice.

    Ostello Santa Fosca was perfect it was on a what seemed like secret little secluded area that was an old church that Galileo Galileo spent time at! The bed was comfortable and locked cabinet was perfect, no complaints at all :)

    I love this elegant and quiet hostel located in the historic area of Cannaregio, Venice. It has a beautiful garden, where you can sit under the orange trees and enjoy the sun. Facilities are very good and it is friendly, and immaculately clean. The hosteria or little bars nearby are atmospheric and serve excellent wine. Hostel is about 30 minutes from the train station, check the route first as it is quite hidden away.

    Good hostel if you want to stay on the island and not the mainland in Mestre. More expensive than some (due to being on the island) but very very good for the price. Solo female traveler and never felt unsafe, good security, clean, and ability to use kitchen was very nice. The being given a key to lock closets was also nice, no need to bring your own. Close to Venice S. Lucie too! Would recommend this hostel!

    The hostel is very well located in a quiet old building, with a lovely garden, perfect for breakfast! The rooms are spacious and organized with big lockers; the en-suite bathroom was big but the setup imperfect: one shower cabin in a room with several sinks but no possibility to lock the door so privacy relative to the respect of your dorm mates... Worked out fine. Otherwise there is big kitchen to cook, a nice communal area, and the staff is very nice and helpfull. I will definitely come back!

    La habitación para dos personas es cómoda, sin embargo el hostal en general no cuenta con la mejor limpieza. La cocina es amplia y está muy bien dotada para cocinar, siempre tiene pasta y aceite para cocinar. El check-in es a partir de la 1pm y antes de eso no hay nadie quien pueda recibir las maletas ni nada.
