    Nice hotel...hard to find

    Hard to find. In a narrow street calle del Fiorno. Room was in process of being modernized. No TV. No working switch to turn off overhead light. Area a bit loud. Management was pleasant

    Handy to eats and drinks

    Wifi did not work in the room. This was quite disappointing. Staff were friendly when we saw them. Directions or a clear map to the property need to be given. We had a very difficult time finding the place. Good location. Nice little piazza (square) just outside.

    My experiences in the hostel friend got bed bug bites after the night we stayed. It was defiantly not a mosquito bite at all. He realized he was really itchy and painful in the morning and the area he got bite became swelling. However, when we reported this situation to the hostel. They said there is nothing they can do and still insist it was because we've opened the window. We never opened the window! As you can see from the photos, it must be something wrong with the bed. We are very disappointed and asked if we will receive a follow-up email from management. The staff said he will tell his boss and that's it. Otherwise, we can write a review to them. I felt sorry for my friend and he can't even enjoy his holiday in Venice because of all the inconvenience caused.

    Loud area

    The location is right next to the party area for the local college kids so it get very loud until about 3am. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay here.

    I didn't have high expectations for a hostel in this price range, and the location is perfect. But it had bedbugs. I felt bites the first night and saw three little critters fleeing up the wall in the morning. I'm confident they're bedbugs because, well I saw them and unfortunately they're not unfamiliar to me, and all the bites are in neat little rows in the classic bedbug style. I told the manager, and they cleaned and moved me to another bed, which was better. (Yup, I stayed another night; I am that cheap). So, bedbugs. Plus I might have scabies, my doctor isn't sure. The last note is there's only one bathroom per floor so you're sharing with about 10 people. There's no common area or kitchen. Also, the description said they had breakfast but they don't. In sum: good location, very sketchy place. Hope this helps!
