“It's an hostel, not an hotel”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

A dormitory-turned hostel with great location and helpful staff. No AC (but you can borrow a fan from them), no wifi, shared bathrooms. The level of cleanness and comfort is just the same as any other budget hostel. In short, you get what you pay for.

Best location in Venice for the price. Definitely more of a dorm/hostel type of hotel, but it's decent enough. Beds weren't the most comfortable, but we were only there for one night and it wasn't a bother. Internet is weak everywhere so don't expect to stay too connected. But again, if your objective is to see Venice conveniently and cheaply, this is your best bet. Also, note that San Polo 3082 is not a street address in the normal sense so you will not find it on google maps. San Polo is the district that the hotel is in, and you just have to wander around until you find 3082. We asked some shop owners and they got us there with no problems!

Stayed in this hostel for three nights, and it was perfect for our time in Venice! The location is 5-10 minutes away from the train station, which was perfect for us. You can easily get to other main areas like Rialto very easily walking, and the San Polo area is very nice. There's a sink in the room which was nice, and towels are provided. There are many common areas to sit, and a kitchen with a fridge to store food. The building isn't air conditioned and we were there during a very hot week, but other than that, no complaints. Staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a great place for budget travelers and backpackers!

Good budget lodging near the cruise port and train. Hostel is very old like most of Venice but rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. There were several restaurants close by. Staff spoke good English and we're very helpful.

Room Tip: Wifi was available throughout hotel but worked best in living area.

I had my own room for a fraction of the price of a hotel room in Venice. I had to share a bathroom with an entire corridor, but it was always empty (and clean) when I needed it, so it waasn't a problem for me. The mainly young staff are kind and helpful, and were very informative. The location is the best, San Polo is very central, and within easy walking distance of major sights and the train/peoplemover/bus stations.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the street, some the canal, and some the courtyard, courtyard is quieter... I ov...

- Cheap price
- Located at Venize Centre
- Will have difficulty to find if you do not have a google map.
- Actually, it is just 650 meters from Venezia S. Lucia train station. But you need to cross at least 2 bridges to get there. A bit tough if you carry heavy luggage.
- Room is a bit old, simple keys, no air conditioning, shared bathroom does not have sufficient water pressure. Bed is comfortable however.

- The lift is a bit old but special
- Not too clean for the room, but you will feel worthy after considering the price -> The cheapest in Venize

if you're looking for a budget stay in Venice, look no further! you will love the location! it's so italian! San polo is one of the most beautiful districts in Venice. There is a supermarket 2 min walk from the hotel, nice italian cafe's, the bus station is 5 min walk away. We were exlporing the city by walk, so it's quite close to the main attractions. We stayed in a twin room, it was clean, with a beautiful view over the bridges. The staff was helpful, they gave us all info we needed and even let us keep our baggage after we had checked out, as our flight was in the evening. I would definitely come back there again, even if i could afford more expensive hotel. Also there is a roof top, where there are seats and tables, you can have a diner there and overlook the city. Highly recommend!
