It was lovely however we preferred friendly Venice. First, great price for what you get. The bed and breakfast/hostel is very close to Accademia bridge. It's on San Stefano Square which is... More

Everything at Friendly Venice was great. The staff were definitely friendly and offered advice on the "must sees" of Venice. The B&B/hostel is kept very, very clean and guests are allowed use of the kitchen which is a bonus if you are on a budget. It has a great location - close enough to the major attractions to be accessible... More

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
