    Beautiful location, really comfortable beds, quiet and very central. Lovely old building with high ceilings and elegant decor throughout - the owner is an architect/interior designer and is so friendly and accommodating. Best hostel in Venice! Really enjoyed my stay and hope to be back!

    Great location. We had a private room that was super clean. Beds were so comfy. Bathrooms were clean and never had problem with being able to use them when needed. Close to a water taxi stop. Would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Venice.

    Forgot her name, but the girl at the front desk was extremely friendly and understanding. Arrived late due to train delays, but she waited for me to arrive for check-in by sacrificing her break time. Four beds per room for a great price; nicely spaced rooms for maximum personal space.

    This hostel is in a great location off the beaten path from the tourist center (I personally loved that). It’s Venice, so still just a walk away from everything you might want to see.

    I really enjoyed my stay! The place was clean, the room was a good size and had a fan! I took the water taxi to the hostel and walked to the train station, both were pretty simple and the staff provided great instructions. This place was a great and affordable way to stay in Venice! Just know that if you book the single room, you are two places down from the main hostel.

    I loved staying at Silk Road. After coming from busy Berlin, this was the perfect hostel to relax in. The host was lovely and the free standing beds really made it feel more like a home than a hostel. As a solo traveller I would have appreciated more of a common space, but I did mingle with others in my room. The kitchen has limited opening hours but wasn’t a problem. The location is a bit further away from Venice sights, but super close to ferries for Lido Island which was good. Great stay.

    Silk Road was the most affordable hostel on the island of Venice. It has a fantastic view of the sea from one of the rooms where you can hear boats traveling by throughout the day and night. Check in was easy since I let them know when I would be arriving. It was nice to stay in a standard twin bed after so many hostel bunk beds. There was a quiet common area and kitchen that didn’t seem to be used much but was available if you wanted to stay in but didn’t want to be in your room.

    The hostel location is good. Near to major attractions. But the hostel staff didn't reach to office on time and I had to wait outside for about half an hour or little more than that. Plus there are so many rules. For towels also they ask for extra 2 euros. Bed is small and not very strong.

    The hostel/hotel is a bloody march from the stations - especially if you have luggage considering the cobble streets and all those bridges. The view is amazing but it is ridiculously hot in the rooms - even with the fans on all night we were in sweats. The staff are only there to let you in out and tried to make me sign an agreement upon arrival. I refused as it wasn't in English which they eventually agreed to. Would be nice if they smiled from time to time too.
