    I missed a community kitchen in the place,but I do understand why they don't have it. 8 floors with 50 rooms each. I would say it's not a hostel, but a low cost hotel. I was happy with it anyways. The room was a little but dusty also. But the rest was great.

    We stayed in a private twin room which was more like a hotel than hostel! Room was modern and mostly clean (bathroom didn’t smell great and was a bit grimy). There are 2 buildings next to each other - kitchen and laundry was in the next door building and overall seemed to have a livelier atmosphere. Location - easy to get into Venice centre by train but lots of police presence in the area and felt unsafe walking in the dark. Overall would recommend for short cheap stay 👍.

    This place is brand spanking new and it’s awesome. The beds are comfy, the place itself is nice, and the atmosphere is great. It’s also super close to the train station which is nice!! The staff were rude and not very welcoming, they seemed very stressed out during checkin / checkout/ and at the bar. That’s my only complaint.

    great value for money, like a hotel! AC is fantastic and lockers under the bed are great. Not particularly social so if you’re solo it may not be the best place to meet new people however the location is pretty good. Only downside is that the kitchen is pretty small for the amount of people.

    The hostel looks very cozy and family oriented. It’s pretty huge and modern and it’s more a hotel than a hostel! The only bad thing we did not like it, is that we did not get the sheets on our beds. Be prepared to ask them to get the sheets which you will also have to pay, which doesn’t make sense to me at all because if you paid the accommodation, you should have the sheets included!!

    Very Good

    Nice hostel with a bus stop right outside to get into Venice - about 15min journey. Rooms were clean though beds were quite hard. We ate locally one night and it was really good and authentic do don’t be put off by location. Only thing was the staff weren’t that helpful or friendly; it would have been nice to have a bit more of a welcome with key information for the area etc

    Not worth the money. Staff not helpful, took 50min to check in. You have to PAY for your sheets which I think is ridiculous seeing as you’re already paying enough. You don’t get assigned beds you just have to go in and find one that doesn’t have stuff on it. In the room we were out in only one bed was free all others were dirty and used so had to take the sheets off ourselves. Bathroom not clean smelt like piss both nights we were there. Only good thing is the location.
