I stayed here for a week with a friend. We were in an all girls dorm, and were given the best beds in the room, right next to the window- so can't complain about that. However, even with the window open, it was very, very hot in the room, especially on the top bunk. The bathroom, although cleaned every day, was always very cluttered with other people's belongings, which remained there long after they'd left the hostel.
The atmosphere was rather terrible. There are couches, tables and chairs all over the place and at first glance you'd expect a good vibe, but all there was were kids running everywhere and pre-teens playing drinking games on the water's edge in front of the hostel. No kitchen of any sort but you can pay for a overpriced breakfast (not even good), and I think dinner as well.
The staff were okay, except that they got really irritating when they kept on saying that the 'wifi doesn't work but we're working on it'. Obviously it isn't their fault, but clearly, no one was working on fixing the problem. I actually felt sorry for the staff having to face all the people demanding wifi, but since their website says they have it, then they really should have. Quite honestly we'd probably have picked a more expensive place if we'd known there'd be no wifi here.
Location was good, we had a week pass for the vaporetto and they crossed very frequently.
All in all, it's an okay place, but definitely over priced for what you get. Although, maybe if they didn't set your expectations too high before you get there it might be passable.
Don't think I'd stay here again.
