Exceptional 10.0
Highly recommend for travelers looking for a hostel in Venice. Should have a Vaporetto pass during your stay because a water bus is the only transportation that you can reach to the hostel.

Great budget hostel.
Super friendly staff. Very well kept dorm room. Comfy bed. Perfect for exploring Venice without being stuck in with the crowds all the time. The ferries are frequent and super fast; probably quicker to get to Piazza San Marco from Giudecca by ferry than from other hostels in Central Venice.

2 pounds fee for keeping your luggage stored at the reception, despite on same day of your check in or not. Otherwise, conveniently located near Zitelle waterbus station. There's pizza cafe & restaurant just next to the hostel. Overall, good stay

Generator is always a good deal
Hostel is nice and well located, although you have to take a waterbus to go anywhere, but that's Venice. The rooms were comfortable and clean, my only complain is that the top floor is very warm in the summer, especially on the top bunk bed. Also, there is no fridge nor kitchen to prep your own meals but the breakfast is well stocked. Staff is friendly and the hostel is spacey.,

It was ok. It’s in Giudecca, not the main island but it’s only a couple of stops away. The staff were alright, not the friendliest. Breakfast was also alright. There’s a restaurant and bar there as well.
Yasaman, ca2 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
The hotel is located on a beautiful calm island. Which must be reached by local water transport. That is, you must also go to the center on it. You can’t eat, drink and cook your food inside. Showers and a toilet are scanty, because of this there is constantly water and pieces of paper towels. Towel rental costs 5 €, more expensive than a hostel in Switzerland, where its rent is 1 €. Their food is semi-finished. The rest is normal, a large presentable hall with many sofas, armchairs. Great coffee in my opinion. This is mostly a youth hostel, which is undoubtedly a plus. The result, if not for the beautiful view, good acquaintances, and coffee, I certainly would not have returned here. In addition, the price must also be multiplied by 2 since, the ticket for the fare costs about the same

Comfortable, good location
My only confusion was that I had booked a room with a private bathroom and it didn’t have one. Other people from other rooms bad access to it. It was a female bathroom but often males would use it. Didn’t like the showers as they needed a good clean and there was nowhere private to change. Also anyone could see you showering (even with the ‘partially frosted’ glass. This needs to be improved.

Good deal on balance
The bunk rooms are crowded, and most nights they played music which was very audible in the 1st floor bunk rooms. The bathrooms were not ventilated well (very very humid), and there was almost always water on the floor. However, the base room rate was reasonable, even with an added 6.50 euro for breakfast. The bunk rooms were clean, the staff was helpful and cordial. The location works very well if you have an unlimited vaporetto pass, probably not otherwise. The laundry, etc is expensive and they add various charges onto everything. But, that’s probably the cost of doing business in Venice.
