It is value for money, especially since it is located at St Lucia itself. However, do note that Venice is really a maze, and we got lost trying to find the hostel even though we followed the instructions closely. It is mostly clean and we felt safe in the hostel. The rest of the hostel guests are friendly and willing... More

Perfect location buttttt! No wifi, not very clean.( they definitely need a maid at least once a day to clean floors and bathrooms) there was no wifi for the 4 days! We were there. Ridiculous! Kept saying it will get fixed "tomorrow". Want you to pay in cash instead of using credit card cause "apparently" the machine won't work without... More

Firstly, the most striking thing about L'Imbarcadero is the location - right on the Grand Canal with an amazing view of the Chiesa di San Geremia from the front bedroom. It is really close to the train station, and there is a water bus stop right outside, but it is a little far from landmarks such as the Rialto Bridge... More

The room we stayed in was lovely! Very clean and spacious so you felt very at home. The en suites were unbelievable for the price! Finding it was a tad difficult but you get to witness Venice whilst searching which isn't a bad thing at all! Would definitely recommend this to anyone backpacking or wanting to go on a budget...

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.
