    Extremely good value for money. Simple clean room with nice beds and a tray to store things. Very good atmosphere in the reception area where you can watch TV and drink on an evening. Only downside is that you don't have a locker in your room, but not a big problem.

    Stayed in a six bed female dorm for 5 nights and would definitely stay again! The room was clean and comfortable and had proper lock boxes to store your belongings when you go so I felt very secure. Just a couple of minutes walk from the station and great value for money with staff willing to help and good facilities.

    A perfect mix between hotel and hostel atmosphere. Very good for a city trip to venice as you can reach the old town by train of bus for just 1,50€ Clean rooms and fair prices also for breakfast and drinks.

    It’s not really a hostel, definitely more of a hotel. Regardless of that it’s a very nice place. So clean and the room was perfect, good bathroom and comfortable bed. It’s outside the main island of Venice but that doesn’t matter because there’s a bus stop right at the door and it drops you right into the island. I’d definitely stay here again, maybe not as a solo traveller though.

    We actually got transferred from a&o mestre 2 to a&o mestre "#1" last minute because they were in the process of renewing the #2. But the staff were very kind and made sure all our needs were met. Plus, a&o 1 and 2 are just metres away from each other so no problem whatsoever. Our type of reservation (twin bedroom with ensuite bathroom) was left unchanged, and was the ideal solution for our trip. The hostel was overall very clean, the staff were kind, the location perfect (close to train stat.).

    Very Good

    My girlfriend and I stayed in dorm rooms here. Each of our rooms was basically a normal sized hotel room with 3 bunk-beds (due to Covid stuff, there were never more than 3 people staying in each room). The rooms were rather nice, and the AC was easy to control if you like to sleep warmer or cooler. The lobby was usually rather noisy, and unless you want to stay in your room, there is no where quiet to go. Everything was very well cleaned and felt safe to be in. Reception is understaffed.

    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.

    No kitchen available to cook. Looks like more to a hotel. The commune area is very impersonal. No good if you are a solo traveler. Some people look that they are living there and there are also creepy guys all around. Also, despite the safety mesure, we were 4 people in a dorm of 6 (they told me that we were to be 3 maximum...) so obviously someone was there illegaly ! Which explain why my sheets (that you have yo pay 3.5€) got stolen when I arrived... Not very safe then !!!!
