The location and the room itself was fine. The cost was reasonable for peak-season Venice. The air-con worked very well and it was good to have a TV with several international channels - shame many were blocked, however. And the wi-fi was efficient enough.
The hostel is located down a narrow alley that is unlit at night. I arrived around 9 pm and couldn't get in - no reception. I needed a torch to see a note stuck inside the front door which said that guests needed to phone the owner on arrival.
I didn't have enough credit on my phone, the call was cut short. I finally got a 4-digit code to open the door, and the keys were in the room (which I eventually found after trying two other rooms).
The owner needs to inform guests CLEARLY and DIRECTLY (and not in the small print that is attached to every correspondence) once the booking is made of this inconvenience (which is what it is). I can't think of any reason why the code isn't emailed to guests once they reserve the room, anyway.
