We were looking for a cheap hostel to stay in on the Venice island, rather than the mainland or a neighbouring island, and decided to stay here. The hostel itself is used by a variety of people, from nuns, to families to students so bear...More
After a lot of difficulties to reach Venice due to plane problems, we arrived at 2 in the morning. The hostel doesn't have a 24hour reception, so we had to go sleep somewhere else.
Due to the circumstances and the fact that we called in...More
This is in a college dorm. Wifi is slow in rooms, but rooms and cabinets lock, and there is free luggage storage. Good location in north venice and staff is friendly. Clean shared bathrooms, outlets in rooms. A bit expensive but Venice is expensive!
This is the worst hostel accommodation I have stayed at. The beds were stained terribly and so were the pillows. Honestly, how can you allow people to sleep on these for the price you charge per night? There was no toilet seat on one of...More
I was extremely disappointed with this hostel for the accommodations but mostly for their service and management. We were appalled by the management’s service and care to their customers. Our largest issue was this:

As explained by my colleague at the reception desk, the reservations can be canceled or changed up to three days before the arrival.

Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
