I stayed in this hostel for my 3-day budget trip in Venice. Located in the guidecca island, you'll enjoy the view of San Marco Square and St. Maria of Salute basilica which is cool. The bar is open 24 hour and it's very cosy too! Excellent!

Definitely enjoyed my stay here! I stayed in a 10 bed dorm for 5 nights which surprisingly was extremely quiet and easy to get a good night sleep! The rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. It's modern with all the features: individual bed lights, power plugs, and lockers. The heating was fabulous, and able to be adjusted... More

We stayed at the hotel for a week before X'Mas and it was great. Excellent location, 2 vaporetto stops to Piazza San Marco and a great view on Venice from our window. The room is simple with a private bathroom and towels, clean. Coffee is excellent - Italy ! - and breakfast good - I would have loved some dark... More

We stayed for one night in a quad ensuite room (one double and I bunk bed) with a beautiful view of the Giudecca canal. Positives: The common area, restaurant and bar are great. Very comfortable and lots of lounging area. The quad room was small but clean and had great new furnishings. Bathroom excellent. Negative: The only downside, and it... More

I don't usually stay in hostels but NYE in Venice called for such measures and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. The beds were comfy and had a powerpoint, light and lockable box underneath and even in a 16 bed mixed dorm it was easy to get a good night sleep. The bar was good and through a... More

I stayed three nights, all largely without issue and a pleasant stay. The lounge and bar was a good space to meet other travellers. The food was fine, reasonably priced and good to have at the end of a day of sightseeing. The room itself (7 bed mixed dorm) was fine and not too noisy (I was on the 2nd... More

We stayed at this hostel two years ago, and it was rather average. Now the transformation is amazing! The separate living quarters, the ambience of the common room on the ground floor and the installation of a lift, make this hostel well worth a visit. Its location on Guidecca Island is perfect. You look across to St Mark's Square and... More

The lobby looks pretty good, and the elevator is vey cool, it is operated by touching. However, I don't know what the room looks like, because I canceled my reservation at the front desk. Originally, I booked 7 nights for me. Later, my wife decided to join me, and she booked another 7 nights for a dorm bed. Due to... More

This hostel is located at a little island nearby the Venice main island. So it's not very noisy compare to Venice main island. Everything for a backpacker is included. However, the staff was not very friendly just like another European hostel. Overall, this is a good choice for exploring Venice city start from here.
