First off, be aware that the location listed on the map only brings you to the hostel reception; our actual rooms were a further 10min walk away, which can be tedious if you’re lugging heavy baggages across those bridges with lots of steps and no ramps. Also, note the additional costs due to the Venice city tax (per head per... More

First, the good: Tight security - four locked doors, each with a key; Clean rooms; quiet location. Now the bad: Four locked doors, each with a separate key, which means you cannot checkout and leave the keys behind as directed. We had to use pizza boxes and such to accomplish that feat; Next, the check in office is a 20... More

The best thing about this place is its location. Literally 5 minutes walk from Piazza Roma, where you catch your buses to aiports, etc. The office at 555 is a bit difficult to find, but once you get your keys, you're left to yourself, which isn't such a bad thing. You get your room with your bathroom and all. A... More

I stayed for 1 night on my Interrail trip through Italy. The Check-In Office is located as shown on the map. Unfortunately you get no Information on the internet about where the actual rooms are. They are located in the street "Rio Terra Pensieri", which is not far from everything else. The room and the bathroom were very clean and... More

I suppose I should start with the positives... The reception desk was easy to find and is nearby the station. They spoke good english and helped us figure out how to get around the city and nearby islands. They also had a closet behind the desk for luggage storage if you checked in early or had a delay between checkout... More

This hostel has 2 locations - one very close to the station, another about 6 min away (but in Venice everything is close...it's just all the bridges and stairs that make it interesting :)) We stayed at the location a little further away, but it was still central to everything, we had a triple room with bathroom inside and it...

The place where we actually stayed was completely different from the map. After checcking in,a staff came to find the place with us,but not friendly..Just COME. But don't worry,still close to Piazza Roma. There was also an elevator. Room was very clean and there was a fridge in there. Breakfast is quite a few.I recommend you to have somewhere else.

Clean bathroom and bedroom. Lack of storage. Room did have a fridge, which was a bonus. Beds need upgrading, as can REALLY feel the springs. WARNING - you will be told where you will be staying on arrival.

Very much like a hotel, in my opinion. Had a double room with a private bathroom attached. Rooms were sparse, but that's to be expected. The rooms are not located at 555 Santa Croce. They are throughout the city. Luckily ours was close by.

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighborhood identity.
