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

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!

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
