Right in the middle of Venice near some of the main sights. Was a small hostel with a good kitchen and bathroom. It was really well kept and the main man Emilio was nice and helpful. Perfect accommodation for allowing you to not spend too much but get a real feel for Venice. We had the only double room.

Lovely comfortable bed with great bathroom and kitchen facilities and bathroom smack bang in the centre of Italy, five minutes from Rialto bridge and all the other beautiful sites Venice has to offer! Emilio was very friendly and helped me out a lot with a tourist map and recommended how to get around the city and what I should do... More

This is set in the heart of Venice with a short walk to everything. Cash machine 30 steps away, restaurants 5 steps away... canal... jump out of the window :) The staff are very nice! Emillio is also very helpful and has the initiative to help you if there is something you should know Communication is brilliant, Emillio seems to... More

My friends and I are young women in our twenties. We came in February (for Carnevale) in the off-season, so it was very quiet. The place is kind of hard to find. Address given is inaccurate on google maps. (Booked through Booking.com, listed as Emeralds Place, same thing.) DIRECTIONS: Take the bus from the airport to the Piazalle Roma (water... More

After reading all the negative reviews about this place I feel like I've stayed somewhere different! Me and 3 other friends arrived at the hostel not really knowing what to expect, it was a little dark and mysterious as it's upstairs in a big stately home and the ground floor is almost abandoned (i think for flooding reasons). We were... More

We booked one double room for three nights in May 2014. When arrived we found out that the address that was given to us was slightly different, after five minutes Mr Emilio, the hostel representative, turned up and in 5-6 minutes he took us to the right place. This hostel has great location just two minutes from the Bridge Rialto... More

Worst place I've ever stayed in. Incredibly unsafe as I had to sleep in a hallway open to anyone with the only security being a cupboard with a dodgy lock. Breakfast was a joke with disgusting crescents and orange juice 6 months old. Foul stench came from the toilet so water was very dodgy. The caretaker, Emilio was incredibly rude... More

I booked for 2 nights in August for 32.50 euros per nite. I was lucky enough to share a 2 bed room which was very comfortable. The shared bathrooms were clean and the kitchen facilities were excellent. This is in Venice, not in Mestre so all the sights are close by. The staff was helpful and friendly and also provided...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
