Welcome to Venice: city of canals, and home to AO Hostel Venezia Mestre. As soon as you walk through the door, our multilingual staff will make you feel right at home in our lovely big bright lobby. We'll welcome you with sofas to lounge on (maybe you've had a long trip!) and projectors showing our daily bar specials. Yep, we have a great on-site bar, so fun times and new friends are literally waiting for you downstairs. Get ready to live la dolce vita!


We're really conveniently located – we're practically on the doorstep of Venezia Mestre train station. If you're coming from the airport, just jump on the tram and you'll be with us in about 35 minutes. While we're not on the island of Venice itself, you can get to it – and the heart of the Old Town, with all of the main sights – via a 10-minute train ride.

Rooms and Dorms

You'll enjoy all the extra comforts of a hotel when you stay with us. Our rooms are clean, modern and cosy (there's also air conditioning for the warmer months!). When you need some downtime, check in back home with our free Wi-Fi or watch some TV from your bed. Choose a single or double room, or share with others in a small dorm (pick from mixed or female-only). We have private bathrooms too, which come with essentials like 2-in-1 shower gel, tissues and hairdryers.

Extras and activities

The hostel has an elevator, so no need to worry about getting your backpack all the way to the top of the stairs. And our reception's open 24 hours a day, meaning our staff are there for you any time whether you want insider city tips or just expert directions. There's also an ATM in the building – stash your cash (when you're not spending it!) in one of our safe deposit boxes and head out to soak up the flamboyant Venetian ambiance.

    This hostel/hotel was amazing. Perfect location just outside of Venice with a short bus trip away to Venice. Great breakfast and travel card deals. And I met some of the most amazing people here. 10/10

    Really nice, clean and modern hostel with a kitchen and laundry services and good WiFi. For us the main con is that it wasn’t as social as we wanted. Also as a group of two girls we were put in a room with all men a lot older than us so be weary. Overall would recommend as a cheaper option close to Venice but don’t expect it to be that social.

    Perfect location, easy to get to the Mestre train station. It has many amenities, however our bathroom wasn't so clean (we were the first and only ones in the room that night). The communal bathrooms were not so clean either. But I wish backpackers could also learn to clean up after themselves.

    Large clean dorm, safe and comfortable. Great bathrooms with two inside dorm. Had to pay for linen which was an added cost. Able to catch bus Nimber 43 across the road straight into Venice - so very easy to access public transport. Staff helpful and friendly. Supermarket 4 minute walk away.

    Don’t expect them to take any form of card, they will simply say their machine is getting “updated” so go use the atm in the lobby, the employees in the lobby seem uninterested in helping customers. Cleaning staff does a fantastic job, and you can tell they work very hard at their job, showers were clean beyond belief, I literally saw one of the staff scrubbing it with a small brush on her hands and knees.

    I picked the hostel because of its great location to the train station and a nearby bus to the island but definitely the worst stay I’ve had on the trip. There’s no kitchen, only a fridge that doesn’t work, and they make you pay to use sheets which is utterly ridiculous. The worst part is the service because the hostel is way understaffed (there was one woman working the reception and bar alone at one point) and some the staff are very slow and unfriendly

    This place does not really have a hostel atmosphere that we were looking for and did not have a kitchen available at the time.

    The staff were lovely. It was pretty dirty. I'm pretty sure I was attacked my bed bugs and not something else according to what I found on the internet. I didn't find any in my bed but I'm now thinking they were possibly in the duvet. It was a pretty tight space and with a big backpack it was hard to move around. I wont go back but for the money and the area I think it's to be expected where ever you go. Keep in mind the 'total' with all taxes included on the website is not the case.
