I am a student travelling Europe with 3 friends - we booked this hostel after researching on the Internet and thinking it looked reasonable for the location and the price.
For what you pay (approx €25 per night) it is appalling!
The directions given by the 'hotel' make no sense & fail to mention there is a main road near by.
Upon arrival, we were then told we had to pay extra for city tax which they conviniently forget to mention.
The hotel itself is disgusting! The carpets are dirty - it appears as though people have been sick/spilt various things and the staff haven't bothered to clean it/replace the carpet.
The rooms are average - not worth the price you pay at all. The staff do not give you toilet roll etc.
The common area is also poor - with a small fridge and no choice from the vending machines.
The staff are very insistent that this is closed at midnight therefore you cannot access water etc that you have stored in the fridge - you do not get a fridge or TV in the room as they claim on their website.
They also insist that you cannot sit outside on the terrace past this time therefore you are confined to your room - particularly annoying if you are a smoker!
The general area around the 'hotel' is vile & the club that is apparantly 2 minutes away is in a disgusting area.
We ventured out of the hostel on our 2nd night only to be greeted by prostitutes and seedy men.
I would never recommend anyone to stay here - pay the little bit extra and stay on the Ventian islands - you will not have a good experience here!!!!
