This was one of the most spacious hostels i've stayed in, and huge lockers. Friendly reception, although they're only around for specific hours. If you're checking out before their hours you can leave your keys in the lock box. Nice kitchen and large common area,...More
The receptionist was friendly and helpful, you do have to pay a tourist tax though and the reception is only open 1pm to 8pm! The location of the hostel is brilliant, we stayed in a double room and the view of the canal was beautiful!...More
The hostel is in an ideal location: about 5/10 minute walk from the train station and a 5/10 minute walk to the Rialto Bridge. The reception was bright and the receptionist very helpful. I stayed in a seven bed female dorm. The linen was provided....More
The check in process was so painful as they had a new trainee on. Sweet guy but there was a line up of people and it took over an hour to check in. There was black mold in the bathroom, the pillows were falling apart...More

Italy > Veneto > Province of Venice > City of Venice > Venice > Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
