As the last hostel on our trip across Italy...we had come to expect much more! After arriving much later than expected due to an unfortunate train strike...we were left to try to find this hostel in the dark without a map. Already not a great idea... The manager of this hostel was incredibly rude when we arrived late..saying that we... More

We stayed at this hostel in mid September, rooms were average (sheets included in hostel price though), very basic with no amenities such as kitchen or laundry rooms. Not sure if it was due to the time of year but myself and my friend woke up covered in bits from mosquitos. We also had a little trouble accessing the hostel... More

I stayed in this hostel and, at first glance, it was ok. But after my first night there I had bites all over my arms and a big (different kind of) bite on my leg that was swollen and red for over a week! I had to spend a fortune on medicines for these different bites as well as paying... More

my advice is to AVOID even coming inside this hostel if you want to enjoy Venice and have a good impression from local people! positive: good location of the hostel and good looking from outside, but. >>> negative: staff is very rude - the owner asked us to tell the reasons why did we choose their hostel if in Venice...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights in a tiny double room which had a sink, bed, fan and bin. It was incredibly dirty and there was huge balls of dust everywhere under the bed. The bed was clean enough, although there was no doona, only a blanket that looked as though it had been used by the... More

This has been the worst place that I ever came into. Is not even a hostel. It doesnt have a reception, you gotta check in through another property of the same owner that is actually a hostel but offered as hotel. There is no common area, you enter through an abandoned house straight to the rooms that are dirty and... More

The hostel was one o the cheapest places in Venice so it's pretty good in that sense. We were three and they gave us a room with three beds, one bathroom per floor (enough because there's not a lot of movement in the hostel). Not very beautiful but enough for those who want to visit Venice and not spend a... More

We had to buy a map when we got to Venice, otherwise we never would have found the hostel! It was in a good location, close to a supermarket and restaurants. The people who ran it were very friendly, they gave us free maps, drew on them where we should go and gave us advice on boat trips. The room... More

The hostel is really basic: beds to sleep and some shelves to put your stuff. There was no wardrobe, at least not in our rooms. The bathroom was clean. We had a private bathroom though. The hostel is not really easy to find, as it is almost every one in Venice, but if you get to Santa Margarita Square and... More

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
