We stayed here for 2 nights in a room with stove and fridge. This ho(s)tel is more of a luxurious hostel than a hotel, and should be taken as such. It has numerous advantages: atmosphere, great location close to the center but still far from the touristic hustle and bustle, and it's relatively easy to get to by boat and a 5 min walk. Again: it's extremely quiet and you'll get a good night's sleep. Just being in the building is a great experience. The Bar downstairs is a very pleasant and spacious area and has a balcony overlooking the canal; can't be beat and great prices (also has an adjunct mini market). We highly recommend to families with kids.
That said, disadvantages exist: we could never get the internet connection working. The A/C did not work on either day even though we were told it would be fixed on day2. The floor of the room was not very clean. Also, our room was not directly accessible to stroller via an elevator, and we had to lift the stroller over some stairs to get to it.
All in all, we will definitely return when in Venice.
