My husband and I did a lot of research trying to find a hotel/ guesthouse in Venice for a week in May at a reasonable cost. We ended up staying here and were glad we did. The location is great, a 5 minute walk to St Marks square and the Rialto bridge. It was a bit daunting finding it initially.... More

really enjoyed our few days here. beautiful a city as venice is, it is unquestionably expensive, and for a budget place to stay you could do a lot worse than this. it's nothing special, it's nothing exotic, but it has a lovely atmosphere, food's not bad, and you can save money to allow you to spend more on attractions.

According to the price rate, It's not bad with the service, room, atmosphere and breakfast. If you don't mind about the room arrangement and service, I think it's quite reasonable price. Moreover, the hotel was decorated in good style. There are piano and many old books for tourism in dinning room. For me, it's impressive.

We enjoyed our stay here because it turned out to be a great location, offering easy and interesting walks to San Marco, the Arsenale, the Ghetto, and the various wonders of Venice. It is true that it is not run like a Viennese five star hotel, but given the price, the location, and the very lovely rooms, I don't know... More

Stayed here because we wanted an authentic "Venezia" experience. Booked a canal room which was quirky & had charm but very run down. Breakfast in the large common room was pretty poor - only packeted fare. Quite difficult to find & seemed to cater for large school groups in the 'dorm' accomodation sections. Front desk staff not very helpful &... More

As rated in Fodor's, this place was very nice, and we felt that we were getting a good deal. Be aware, that the reception is not always open, so check their times on their website in advance. The place had a lot of teenage students in a group when we were there, but it was a good natured group. We... More

This was an impromptu stop in my trip, arrived without any bookings guided by my LP, and boy was it worth the time lugging by backpack in the narrow lanes of Venice asking shop owners and locals to help me find this place. I had spent a night in my sleeping bag on a railway station thanks to a misleading... More

The ratio services offered/price is poor: no table in the room, no support for the suitcases (they were lying on the floor), no wardrobe, no hairdryer in the bathroom (you may get one at the reception desk), reception personnel without any customer focus and no smile, self-service breakfast, you should clean the table yourself, no daily room service, before check-out...

I looked forward to staying in this place as we've booked a canal view room but once we reached the reception, we're sorely disappointed. We're greeted with sour face from the worker. Even the next day she showed us only sour face. However with others, she smile ever so brightly. I'm thinking this is a bit of a discrimination. We... More

We had a wonderful experience with this hostel in August 2012. Everyone was so nice and helpful from questions (by email) during booking to the guy at the front desk the two nights we were there. This was actually our first experience in a hostel and we found it ideal for our family since a quad room is just a... More
