Having viewed the negative comments, I didn't expect too much but it was still worse than we thought. We stayed in double room with private bathroom. The room was very old and dirty, with stains on the wooden floor, furnitures and bathroom carpet. Paints exfoliating from walls. Some hairs were left on the bed...I wondered if the sheets had been...

Staying at a hostal is never the most luxurious experience, and finding an affordable place to stay in venice is even harder, but based upon my experience at "hotel" Giovannina, I would opt for paying more money to stay in venice center instead of the economical hostel. Firstly, this hostel is not located in venice, but "Mestre." Basically, the ghetto... More

For a 1-star budget hotel it rated an Excellent. Great location close to easy and frequent train/bus access to and from Venice. Super friendly and helpful staff. Hard price to beat so close to Venice. 24h desk for those checking out really early. Clean cozy rooms, we had a double.

We stayed for three nights just for somewhere cheap to see Venice. We opted for a shared room, as it was the cheapest option, and only had to share for one of the nights. Private bathroom, friendly reception staff, good location, reasonable bed. Spthe nearest supermarket is a bit far walking, however it probably feels like less time when it's... More

We were two american girls traveling through, and this place was great for just coming back to relax and then sleep. Everything was clean, the shower was nice and hot, the worker made the bed in front of me so it was clean as well. A great location as well, we were able to walk our big luggage all the... More

Stayed here on our way back through Italy on our way home. We had just gotten off the overnight ferry from Split, which was a terrible night, so we were looking for somewhere last minute. Lots of bad reviews, but we were at the point of just wanting a bed and a shower. So we took the risk, and it... More

We definitely had some problems with the room itself, but the staff was pretty friendly, and we were glad to have the hotel so close to the Mestre train station. Just a one-minute walk to the hotel, and when we wanted to go into Venice itself, it was only a couple euros to take the train. We were only staying... More

The single room had sheets, a pillow, a towel, a sink with soap and a mirror, a closet, a table with a fan (it was very hot at night) and a radio clock. I needed to look for a hotel that day so I was searching for something just available, so in the end this was one of the only... More

You can't expect more for that price. All you need is there: tiny (but private) bathroom, big bed, towels, soap, shampoo. The only thing we were really missing was the air conditioning at night. There was a fan but when it was working it wasn't that quiet. The staff were really nice, helpful and speaking English. Location is very good.... More
