Locanda Matir is a pretty decent choice if you're on a budget. Stayed only 1 night in January 2013 and it was just fine for spending the night: room was tiny but very clean, and once we figured out how the heating system worked, it was warm as well. Bonus points for the fridge and tea/coffee maker. Breakfast was included in the price and it was very very basic. Staff was great, very friendly and helpful but beware, they're only there a couple of hours a day, this is more of a self-service hotel. We could leave our luggage in the hall after checking out and the staff gave us a code to the door so we could come back for the bags later on - really appreciated that we didn't have to drag the luggage around but at the same time, leaving it out in the hallway didn't feel that safe though ... Would prefer it if someone from the staff was available throughout the day. Location is great - Campo Santa Margerita in Dorsoduro sestiere is fabulous but I suppose I'm a bit biased because I adore this part of Venice (10 min to Piazzale Roma or Piazza San Marco, lots of cafes around, great starting point for exploring the city ...).
Also, two very important things: this hotel has VERY steep stairs (and I mean very; I don't have problems with stairs in general - this is Venice, after all - but these were quite ... interesting) and it can be quite noisy.
All in all, this is a decent hotel though I prefer hotel Tivoli which is near by and offers better value for money (or at least it did back in 2011).
