My partner and I searched for cheapish accommodation in Venice for days on end only to read horrific reviews of other places. We stumbled across this one through bookings.com, the reviews said it was hard to find and that it was dirty but they must be kidding themselves. Literally took us 3min from the water station (S.Samuel) to find it.... More

We booked the Venice Academy for two nights for the 18th and 19th of August. Our train arrived in Venice at around midnight and after about an hour getting pretty lost trying to find the place (it is very hard to find as precious reviews have mentioned) we turned up at a dark door down an alleyway with no signage....

Super differcult to find but once you get there its rather nice. Very expensive for what it is but the room is very spacious and the bathroom facilities are really good. Staff are very non existence and you have to pay extra for bed sheets which don't include a towel. However venice is hard to navigate anyway. Its placed in... More

They charged extra 8? for city taxes and bed sheets (not mentioned on their page) and the total price is pretty high for a hostal. The whole place is nice: beds, location, restrooms and the posibility of using the kitchen might help you save some euros. But still expensive for what you get.

A friend and I stayed at the Academy for 3 nights in April 2013 - we were very pleasantly surprised by the friendly welcome - it is quite a small hostel but there is a kitchen for those who want to cook during their stay and the bathrooms are very clean. The location is excellent - an easy walk to... More

The staff here were quite helpful, one even asking if we would like him to take us out which was very nice as being a group of four travellers we found it hard to find places to go out. It was in a very good location if you are getting around by foot. The bedrooms were very big and the... More

The Academy is a small and beautifully designed hostel. The location - very near to St Mark's Basilica, the Guggenheim and other main attractions - was perfect. The rest, however, was not so great. I stayed there at the end of November, and I was the ONLY guest. Hot water ran out at one point, the internet was faulty, they... More

My experience with "The Academy" was totally horrible. First of all, at the check in, I was informed by the receptionist that the hotel is over booked and there is no place for me to stay and they arranged for me to stay at another hostel which is like 20 mins far away by walking. When I complained about this... More
