    Enjoyable experience with this hostel. It is situated very close to the Mestre railway station and bust stoppage. The hosel has a stylish, elegant outlook equipped with modern facilities. It has a nice wide commodious sitting longe to chill out. Staffs were amiable and cooperative. Con: I don't like charging for bed linen. They did it to make look the cost incredibly lower and then charge for items like bed linen and towel. Also no complementary breakfast. Still it's a good value for money.

    Very wonderful place to stay, I stayed in a dorm the first night and then my girl joined me the next day and they upgraded me to a private room without any extra costs, they split the difference. Beautiful and clean and huge place, dorms are great, private rooms are great, prices are the best you’ll ever see for such great quality, it is more of a hotel than a hostel. The only thing was that staff didn’t smile once, ESPECIALLY the women. Very grumpy and uncaring. Though a Pleasant stay.

    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 :)

    The Hostel was good, clean and safe. But we had some problems buying bus tickets at the reception. As we were checking out we bought two tickets to Venice with a receptionist, and we found out at the bus that the same tickets were already used (only inside the bus) Another thing I think the Hostel should make the guests aware of, is that “Having a guest kitchen” for them it is just allowing you to use the facilities of the Hostel next door.
