“Very welcoming and Absolutely perfect location”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

The location couldnt have been better. Loved being a 5 minute walk from the Rialto Bridge yet also managed to be away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist streets!

We also found the food and drinks prices were relatively cheaper where we were staying.

The welcome was extremely friendly and there was 24 hr help on hand if needed.

The kitchen area was useful for when we wanted to cook at the hostel.

The only thing I'd mention just so you are aware is that there seemed to be a bit of a problem with little flies on the ceilings. I noticed there were working on getting rid of them and im sure the just come with the summer months but it was quite unpleasant!

Room Tip: All Great rooms as the place isnt huge so each room is well looked after

Booked to stay at Sweet Dreams Venice. Before we arrived we received an email with instructions to go to the Venice Star address where we would be taken to our hostel. When we arrived we were told that we could not stay at the hostel that we originally booked due to renovations. Our new room had no Internet access (only available in the common room) as well as no lockers available (we didn't feel our stuff was safe in the room). There was minimal tourist information. Only one power point in the double private room. Bathroom facilities were okay but no towels and the place was quiet. Wouldn’t recommend this hostel.

Room Tip: TIP: Make sure that you clarify which hostel you will be staying at.

This accommodation is a complete joke-avoid if at all possible. We booked to stay in San Marco Dreams, the supppsedly bran new apartment that is part of the Venice Star Hostel. I have to say it's the dodgiest place I've ever stayed. It feels like you are in a room in someone else's house , that is still in the process of being built and furnished. There is no reception area and no one in charge seems to be around at any time, so you are really left to your own devices, minus towels if I may add. It feels completely unsafe, particularly for two young girls travelling alone. The door outside is locked at all times, to which we were given a key, but each time we returned back to the place we had terrible trouble trying to turn the key in the lock. Then once we had the door open, the whole place was in darkness and we had to stunble our way up 2 flights of stairs in the dark. The bathroom in the so called apartment was disgusting and the shower was merely a tap. There was no bin in the bathroom or towels or any kind of hand drier. After 3 or 4 morning showers the place was flooded, as if there was no drainage system in place. We paid 70 each for a twin room per night which was far too over priced in my opinion.
