    Great hostel, very friendly and helpful staff, great location and easy to get to the island from there and right next to the train station. I would definitely stay there again. Fantastic value for money.

    Although I had the worse experience of being in Mestre (many immigrants fight and steals on streets, sorry to express this way), the experience in the hostel was nice. Very new and nice personnel... I have arrived in many A&O's around Germany and this one was the best of them. And the price is amazing

    All of the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, the private room was great - really bright, clean and nicely decorated. Great to have an en-suite in the room. The bus stop is directly outside and they sell bus tickets at the reception which is really helpful, 2 minute walk to the train station too!

    Excellent hostel at an excellent location! Unluckily I got robbed inside the room by someone while I was not there . If you’re gonna stay use a lock in your boxes.

    The service prompt and polite. The room I stayed in was cleaned each day. There wasn’t much atmosphere but then again I went in January.

    A clean hostel, with plenty of adult guests, gives a more "reality" feeling. Everything clean, but kitchen can shock a tidy person, when youngsters are left to cook unsupervized. PLEASE redesign breakfast and make it local,with Venetian foods-everybody wishes to try local food! More cultural books would be a nice addition to the lounge area, or a screen/projector to promote the local history/arts/culture for the guests spending time in the lounge/bar area. Viva Italia!:)

    It was a nice Hostel but im not sure id call it a Hostel. It was more a hotel style ( 9 Floors ) it was super nice overall and the staff was great but when we went into our rooms the beds were not clearly labelled and we had a few problems figuring out which ones were occupied and which ones were not. There was another incident where a new guy came in and fell asleep in someone elses bed because they were not labelled very well. There was also no personal kitchen which made things a bit hard.

    Hostel was great, more like a hotel than a hostel though (so take as you please - was suitable for our trip but depends what sort of holiday you want)! No atmosphere, nor any groups to interact with or a kitchen to use. Can borrow a kettle for a 20 euro deposit which came in handy. Bus stop right outside for the bus into Venice :)

    Was bitten by bedbugs, rooms were not cleaned properly and blankets were not washed after use (leading to bedbugs!), and there was only one kitchen for two buildings worth of guest which was terribly inconvenient.

    Took half an hour each time we wanted to ask something at reception. We paid for linen only to comeback the next night to realise they had taken them and there was no one at reception. No lockers in rooms and difficult kitchen situation but understandable due to sanitation measures.
