    It's a nice place to stay in venice that is affordable. We had a private room and it was clean and great for our needs. It's close from good restaurants and a bus stop. Just note that it's a really huge hostel so the vibe is not the same as in a smaller one, it feels more like a hotel. Still, we had a good stay :)

    Very convenient and cheap for those traveling on a budget. Easy to get to Venice and airports with all transit just steps from the hostel. My only dislike were the lockers-- they had huge gaps that anyone could stick their entire hands into. I felt like I had to lock my things within the locker. Also agree with everyone saying this isn't a social hostel; it has all the people there who want to be social, but none of the facilities or atmosphere to encourage breaking the ice between travelers.

    good location to go and see venice, room was fine but bathroom wasn’t cleaned once during our stay (4 nights) so the floor was a bit grim. doesn’t have washers/kitchen, these are in the hostel next door !

    It's perfectly fine if you need a cheap stay in Venice, but it's not the most social hostel, as typical for an A&O it's more hotel-like. AO2 doesn't have a kitchen, but you can use the one in another AO hostel next door, but said kitchen is reeaally small for the amount of people. And keep in mind that you have to pay for bedsheets if you don't bring your own.

    Room was clean and had a good space, but the bathroom was really bad, after taking a shower needed to dry all the bathroom with a towel because the water didn’t go away and also was smelling so bad.
