Very Good8.0
Clean, budget accommodation with budget amenities
Easy check-in and out. You will either be locked in or out at 0030 until opening again at 0700! Room was clean, as were shared facilities (kitchen, bathroom and shower). No air conditioning (seems to be average for Venice) or fan, but the balcony opened up for a breeze. At times it was a little noisy, but I would not hesitate to stay again if on a budget!!

Great friendly place
It is a simple hostel, but it is managed very well. There is everything you need for a basic stay and everything is in a good condition. I think our triple room was charming, old, but charming in an old European sence. We enjoyed the terrace, we used the kitchen for quick lunch and dinner, which was very convenient for us. The carfew wasn't a problem for us, but I can see how some people would like to be out after midnight. Location is convenient, beats staying off the island.

A place to sleep
It was super hot in the room so we had to spend a lot of time on terrace where it was cooler.

DO NOT COME HERE! We almost moved hotels.
I had booked a room for $50 2 nights before. Lovely place with a courtyard, breakfast, clean bed. The hotel got fully booked so we had no choice but to stay here. At $70 you would think it was decent but OMG was it the most disgusting place we stayed in. Everything was DIRTY, old and dusty. There's a curfew at midnight to 7am in which time you are not allowed to exit or enter the building. We arrived to dirty beds and apparently there were fresh sheets on top of a dirty bed. We had to make it ourselves. The bed I got wa sweaty, moist and filled with snall hairs. There was only one extra socket in the room and one light bulb. Extremely hot during the night and only 2 bathrooms to share amongst 10 (?) rooms. Most horrible stay of my life. Do not come here. This place is scamming people. I cannot understand how it gets its decent ratings. Perhaps the people who stay here think they are getting a deal but there are so many other hotels for the same price (if you book early) for even less the price.
