    Just great! The room was very clean and renovated. The only thing was the bathroom was floating the water.

    Didn't spent too much time on it but couldn't find any reasons to rate less than 5 stars in all five categories.

    The Hostel is very good considering the price, it looks like a standard hotel would do and is clean and big. The rooms are good as well, and the beds have all you need but the only thing we didnt like and ruined our stay was that it was summer and there were a lot of mosquitos, we had to leave the window open as the AC wasnt working so... couldnt sleep. Overall good for the price.

    The hostel is super close to the main train station (around 5 minutes walk). It has more of a hotel feel than a hostel life but that's okay. Still met some nice people and had good talks. Staff is pretty helpful. They also have a kitchen which is pretty good. It's a little noisy with the windows open hence the fact that it is so central but it's okay during the night. I could always sleep well.

    The hostel is well located, close to the train and bus station. The check-in and check-out was very easy. The breakfast was rich and low-priced. The private room was simple but good. The only negative point was the en-suite bathroom: it hasn’t been cleaned properly (some black hairs on the floor) and the radiator was full of condensation that leaked to the floor. In general a good price-value hostel and possibly we were just a bit unlucky with the bathroom.

    Very Good

    Overall it was good. There was just a couple of crazy people that were able to get inside the hostel. Didn't see any impediment for this people to get to the hallways. Basically they do not have security. There was also many old guys smoking and drinking outside. Giving the hostel the appearance of a bar (and not the nice kind) Just didn't look good. The rest was good. Clean and rooms are very good for the price. I would go again.

    I should start off by saying that I booked this as it was more convenient for moving on the next day without realising too much about Mestre. Too be honest, if you're hoping for a nice backpacker hostel and you're in Venice, I would spend the extra money to be in the city. Here you are outside of Venice in an industrial area when you could be looking across the water. The facilities aren't terrible but it felt slightly sketchy and you also need to pay for sheets.. pleasant staff though.
