A warm welcome, spotlessly clean, plenty of bathroom/WC, no queuing! Beds are comfortable and cosy-the front 3 bedded room overlooks the square, but all goes quiet after about 9.30pm. Safe women-only hostel, in beautiful old Venetian building, centrally situated 10mins from San Marco, 5mins from waterbus Accademia stop (important if you have luggage to carry first and last day) -...

It's very easy to find (close to the Accademia bridge), interesting building, clean, spacious shower/bath and toilet and feels very homey. Spacious room and the real beds (not bunks) are very comfortable too. Basic breakfast is included and you can use the kitchen. Wi-fi also included and you don't have to bring your own towels and padlock for the lockers.... More

I stayed here for 4 nights during my solo journey in Venice and loved it. The hostel has a great location, merely a few minutes from a vaporetto stop and a BNL ATM (no transaction fees if you happen to have Bank of America). It overlooks a fairly large square and thus feels safer at night, and for music lovers... More

It was hard to find on arrival due to little signage on the building. It's a good value stay for budget conscious travelers. Did not know it was women only a week before my travel plans and they were great able accommodating us. Our room faced the square and the small canal. The view was nice but was quite loud... More

It was easy to book (www.booking.com) and easy to find thanks to Google Maps. Bring cash - it is too complicated to try to pay with a credit card. It is relatively quiet considering that it overlooks Campo Santo Stefano. It is a five to seven minute walk to San Marco, and a 2 minute walk to the vaporetto at... More

Overall, good value for women traveller in Venice on a budget. Great location, close to S. Marco and Accademia vaporetto stop. Modest dorm-style rooms, but comfortable surroundings, including kitchen facilities and lockers. Comfortable bed, you may want to bring earplugs for a more restful sleep. A good mix of guests made for interesting breakfasts. Payment was kind of pain, since... More

My stay at Friendly Venice was very nice. This hostel is very well located and offers a good price. The room and the bathroom were clean. The staff was very friendly and patient. Internet was ok, but only worked in the lobby. Breakfast was very simple, but decent.
