    This is not a hostel, it's a hotel with bunk beds in the rooms. So there wasn't a friendly backpacket atmosphere. There is a kitchen, but its shared between both buildings which have about 10 floors each. So it's way too small, prepare to wait if you want to cook, especially on weekends. They charge extra for blankets and towels so bring your own if you have them. That said, the rooms are very clean and modern. Right next to bus station. Price was excellent!

    I only reduced the atmosphere points because I’m a backpacker and the type of social scene here isn’t really for people like me, it’s a little bit more fancy/bougie. Less down to earth. That’s just the kind of place it is though. Other than that, basically like staying in a nice hotel.

    It was a good place to stay. Wasn’t at the hostel for long as we arrived late and had to get an early train the next morning. The bathroom was nice and there was under the bed storage. It’s cheaper than actually staying in Venice but you would have to take the bus or train to get to the centre from the hostel.
