4   Good This is more of a guesthouse than a hostel. The beds are very comfortable. There is a small dining room with a microwave. There is no other common area. Bathroom setup is not great; no lock on the main door for the bathroom, only on the shower doors, which would be fine if there was space in the shower cubicle to hang your clothes and towel, but there is not. There is no proper holder for the shower head, just a bent coat hanger, so I ended up just holding it. Wifi signal is good in the dining room. The owner is very friendly and helpful. Ideally if you are on a budget you should book somewhere that can be easily reached on foot, otherwise you have to pay €7 for the water bus, so the location is great, only 10 minutes walk from the train station. You do need to tell them your arrival time, as there is not always someone home to let you in. If this was in any other city I would give it a lower rating, but for Venice it's good.  , Australia ()
5   Great location and friendly staff This hostel is about a ten minute walk from the train station and very easy to find using the map in the site. The rooms are nice and big and very clean. The lady running the hostel was very nice and provided a nice breakfast every morning. Venice is amazing and this is a great hub for exploring the city.  , US ()
5   Really Excellent. The hostel is close to the main train station, just walking distance and easy to find out. It is really convenient. The environment is clean and quiet. They provide free and good breakfast. It's really nice. The quality of free WIFI is good. The host is kind and likes to help people. She gave me a really good suggestion how to travel in Venice and the other small islands. And She helps me a lot. The hostel is a really nice place I stayed in Italy. Choose it and you will never regret. Strongly recommended.  ()
5   Good A very nice hostel with comfortable beds. The owner is really nice and helped us a lot. The place is not difficult to find even we arrived at late night and it is really close to city centre. There are supermarkets and resturants nearby too.  , age 20, Hong Kong ()
5   Great The hostel is well located in the city and the owner is very friendly to the travelers. Strongly recommended!  , age 23, Taiwan ()
4   More like a room in a home It didn't feel like a hostel, more like a room in a one-floor home. The place was clean, my room had a bathroom inside so that was convenient. The place is quiet and very safe. Internet is good in the "living room" area (just a table and chairs) but low reception in rooms. Breakfast was ok -- milk, cornflakes, white bread and jam. Landlady and her husband are Chinese, English is ok. The place was surprisingly always booked (surprised bc it's not on another hostel booking site), so I met a lot of travelers and explored Venice with them. Your first feeling for the place might be disappointment since it looks a bit run down on the outside and looks spooky in the hallway, but looking back it was a peaceful and satisfying stay. Overall it was a different but good experience.  , age 19, USA ()
3   Do Not Recommend The bathroom + toilet is the problem. As far as I noticed, it was only cleaned once a day, so what do you expect for the cleanliness if 10 people is using it? But as this is one of the cheapest bed on Venice's main island you could find online, you get what you pay for. As for the beds, the positive side they aren't in double-decker. P.S., Venice city tax for B&B is 3 Euro. Given the breakfast provided is basic and simple, it would be a better bet if you opt for another similar price hostel which doesn't provided breakfast, save the city tax, and get a decent breakfast at a cafe/bar.  , age 32, Malaysia ()
4   Clean, good location, terrible bed The hostel is clean but shows its age. The location is perfect if you want to use it as a base to visit every sestiere (parts of town). It is very close to the Rialto bridge, so once you've found it, you should not have a problem to find it again, even tough Venice is a maze. The breakfast has nothing amazing, but it exists, and there is a kitchen with fridge and micro wave. The bed was terrible, I could feel the springs which is really the worst thing about this place.  , age 34, France ()
3   Good location Good location, comfy beds and good wi fi however was so hot at night and all there was was a little fan. Dodgy power points so fan didn't work half the time and it was hard to charge your phone. clean bathroom but there is only 1 so had line up for toilet and shower all the time. Also was a bit strange that the lady that worked there slept in our room with us, we also locked the door each time we left but came back to find it unlocked and wide open which we didn't like at all. Overall it was average, but not worth the amount we paid.  , age 21, Australia ()
3   One bathroom for too many people There was one bathroom for ten people which isn't a great ratio. Also, the staff (two of them) were both Chinese and couldn't speak much Italian or English which was a little problematic. The room was incredibly hot during the day and the night. On the other hand, the location is absolutely amazing. It's close to the rialto bridge and everything is within an easy walking distance (except murano and burano of course). There's also free wifi which is nice.  , age 18, Canada ()
3   Clean but nothing amazing It was a nice clean place. A little hard to find, but so is everything in Venice. Nothing extra, average breakfast. Owners don't speak very good English or Italian, they are Asian. So don't expect any tourism help from them. Although a good cheap place that is clean and safe, while this can be hard to find in Venice.  , age 22, USA ()
4   Great Location, good value for your money Had a great experience, mostly due to the people I met. The place was really basic with just one bathroom for 10 beds (if they are fully booked), a "kitchen" which consisted of a microwave and sink only, but it was clean, got free wifi and breakfast, and I felt safe there -- for 23 euros. The phone number connects you to somewhere else -- some guy I never saw, but the woman who is actually at the hostel is nice. Just be warned that she is not always there -- so really let them know when you will arrive. Finally, location-wise, you can't beat this place!  , age 23, Sweden ()
4   Not bad. Not extraordinary The woman running the place is nice enough. The bathroom is really clean and I had an overall good experience. Would stay again. Good location as well.  , age 20, USA ()
5   Good, friendly, nice location The room is suitable for friends trip. The location just near the centre. Especially, the staff is very very friendly! Also,restroom is nice! If I back to Venice, I will choose here to stay again!!!  , Taiwan ()
3   Hard to find, but great location The hostel was impossibly difficult to find because the sign on the door is no bigger than a name tag, and we were with a Venetian trying to find it! Other than that, the beds were relatively comfortable, the location was PHENOMENAL (next to all the major touristy parts of the city). The breakfast was kind of cheap, but hell, it was free. The owners didn't really speak English very well, but we made do with some funny hand signaling. I would stay here again. Don't forget to bring a towel, the hostel has none for rent.  , Canadian ()
