Really lovely little hostel. Rooms were clean and quite well made up, breakfast was provided (basic packaged toasts, cheese, fruit, standard fare), friendly staff, and quite close to the station. When I arrived very very late (1am!) because my train came in 3 hours late they were kind enough to let me in and didn't even charge me a late... More

I will never go back. The staff is not Italian and unprofessional. is a dirty place, and without maintenance. The floor is unsafe. It seems that the building should collapse. the walls are dirty with mosquitoes death.

It was the best hostel I've ever stayed. The location is great, it is close to the train station and walking distance to the center. The staff was very friendly and helpful (Tanya and unfortunately i don't remember the name of the other guy). It was very clean, has 2 showers and toilettes. The interior is very beautiful!

What the title said. I had a great time at the Imba - everythign was clean, the breakfast was a decent spread, and everyone there was very kind. I had a cold, so the hostel supervisor took me to a pharmacy and helped translate so I could some medicine. After he treated me to some Italian hot chocolate and pastries.... More

Worst hotel experience ever. I paid in cash first night I arrived and didn't ask for a receipt. That was my mistake. When I left they charged my card through booking.com. When I wrote to manager he denied that I gave him money. That was a lesson for me, a bit expencive though. Wouldn't recommend this hostel to anyone.

Four of us recently stayed here when visiting Venice. We booked a quadruple room which represented good value for money and we were presently surprised when we were shuffled out of the Hostel to a two bedroom apartment which we would share with another guest/s. We had our own bedroom with private bathroom and four single beds. We shared a... More

the hostel is very close to the raliway station with a five minute's walk. It is also very close to all the main atractions with half an hour's walk to Rialto and San Marco. The hostel has a kitche with a stove and a frige. Sam was nice and helpful.

My friend and I arrived at this hostel at summer. No air conditioning. Too hot and humid, kept sweating all night. Moreover there were like dozens of mosquitoes flying around at night, hard to get asleep. The manager was not that friendly either. The only pros are like the location (small sign in a small road which requires your mapping... More
