My husband & I (in our 50's) stayed in the double room for 2 nights in May and we found it great value. Our room, while basic, was spacious and the bed comfortable and clean. We loved the area, very clean, quiet and easily reached from Santa Lucia train station. We can 2nd Franco's recommendation of the Osteria Alba Nova... More

My girlfriend (32) and I (29) stayed here 2 nights to start off our trip. We had a twin private. Positives: well situated and wifi worked great. Negatives: beds, if you can call them that were beyond uncomfortable. There were all kinds of small red bugs in my bed and on the walls (not sure if bed bugs or not... More

Such a cute hostel! The rooms and washroom were very spacious, the owner (Franco) of the hostel was the sweetest, kindest man. Also very clean (the owner came in everyday to clean the washroom). It is located in central Venice, and you can walk anywhere within a few minutes. Located 5-7 minute walk away from the train station and Rialto... More

I stayed in Venice for 2 days and it was great. Me and my friends, we stayed in a separated house that looked like a bnb. I felt home! We had a magic bag. We put our clothes in there and after a few hours it came back clean! Hahaha Totally recommended!

A clean hostel, more like a house that makes you feel like home. Walking distance from the main attractions, or even close to the vaporetto that leaves you one minute from it. Clean, with a breakfast included, big room and family-like fealing. Attentive and caring owner. We would completely recommend it.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time. Franco is great fun and had us laughing all the time. He was very helpful and approachable. The room we stayed in was a double bed, really spacious and clean. The bathroom is also clean. It's about a 10 minute slow walk to St Marks Square and 3 minutes... More

Franco is hilarious! Total prankster. He had my wife hide my shoes within moments of meeting him, then proceeded to mock me for not being able to find my shoes. He came up with nicknames based on our real names and never once called us anything else. He gave us insider tips and directions (almost a necessity in Venice) and... More

We stayed here for 5 days around Easter. Arriving late at night (around 11ish), we were pleasantly surprised to find Franco (who runs the place) waiting for us at the corner of one of the small streets to take us to the house. After walking there once, it is very easy to find so no problems there! The guesthouse is... More

I stayed with friends in this guest-house for several days, and we had a great time here! The location was nice, only a short walk from a vaporetto stop along the Grand Canal as well as the main train station in Venice. The owner, Franco, was very friendly and helpful. He kept some pastries, milk, juice, bread, jam/nutella, cereal, tea,... More
