Nothing can ever get so bad that it would be a reasonable choice to stay at this hostel. My body is covered with bedbugbites from head to toe and I can only hope they are not coming home with me. Staff is also shockingly rude and can easily go straight into your room without knocking. They´re especially eager at that when the rooms are about to be cleaned and tried to enter my room by shaking the doorhandle every half an hour from 06.30 - 11.00 even if I shouted out that someone is still in here several times.
Don`t waste 4€ on the "breakfast" either which is powder coffe, powder orange juice, melba toast, ham, cheese and miniboxed jam. It´s the worst I´ve had in my life. And they don`t refill anything until you ask them to, if even then.. It´s just a place where you get the feeling that they just don`t care. I should probably end by saying something nice about this place, but there just is none. No one should support this place by staying here.

I stayed here at the end of August 2013 for 2 nights, and found it to be an alright place to stay. Didn't expect luxury due to the price or anything, but it was satisfactory. There were 3 of us travelling, and we selected a 4 bed room, but they gave us just a 3 bed one which was nice. We got a balcony area as well as our own shower room. The blind did not work in our room, but for the second night they put it down for us half way. The shower did not drain properly, as it's one of those wet rooms. It wasn't the cleanest of places but it did the job! Facility wise.. the wifi was good in our room (3rd floor). The left luggage area did not seem secure, as it was literally just a small alcove with a curtain covering it, so did not feel too safe! We did not use any of the common room facilities, and did not eat the food there. Instead, we went round the corner to a nice cafe (forgotten the name), where there were many great deals and lovely staff.

Room Tip: We got a room with a balcony, which was a nice touch!

Okay, so I read the reviews for this place and feared the worse. We were InterRailing and needed somewhere to stay close to Venice. It is literally 3 minutes for mestre station which is perfect!

We were on the 4th floor and saw no insects. We had a 4 bed dorm and it was like any other hostel, the bathroom was large and the shower was nice!
The wifi is limited to the lobby but it can be ok as this is a social space.
On the night we were there, they gave out free dinner. So if you are staying here don't panic, we had a good stay!

Stayed here for 2 days in June and it was quite the interesting stay. Although this hostel was cheap, it’s really not worth it, but I have no other Venice hostel to compare to. The A/C was broken and you get attacked by mosquitoes at night when you leave the window open. Our bathroom had no light switch because there aren’t actually lights. Instead, we had a light bulb that was placed on top of the sink. We were also not given blankets. We were required to hand in our room keys before we left the hostel, but when we returned, we were not asked for any ID to get our keys back, which really made me feel uneasy. The WIFI only worked in lobby. Besides all of this, the staff was super friendly.

First of all, the location is absolutely terrible. 30 minute drive to the city centre. Staff were rude and unhelpful. There were two roaches on the curtains and bed bugs kept falling on us. The furniture was stained and falling apart. The breakfast was €4 and was not even being served at all. We didn't stay the night. We asked the receptionist to call us a taxi and we drove to the nearest hotel and stayed there instead. That is how bad it is, guys. We went in, took one look at the place and u-turned back out. Do not stay here.

This hotel is very simple. Don't expect luxury. However, it is clean, it is close to the Mestre railway station, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the price is great! We were a large group of students and couldn't have hoped for better accommodation in Venice.

Location of the hotel is not bad though you might face some problems with the facilities of the hotel. I would say this is a cheap hostel so don't expect something special. Well if you just consider just as a sleeping place (because of the tourist travel during the day and just come to hotel to sleep at night) then it's not a bad choice.
