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, but this isn't a place for someone looking for a hostel that offers a lot...

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! The grounds are nice as well. The only downsides were that there was no safe...

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. I was on a bottom bunk and there was no room to sit up, however...

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 and felt like it was full of socks, and bugs were everywhere. An ant crawled...

First off, we couldn't find the doorway because of the poor directions. It's actually within the university gates and there are no signs other than a vague "hostel" 200 m away. It took us OVER AN HOUR just to check in, waiting in line while us and 20 other hot aggrevated travelers. The check in process was horrifically slow, which...

Our room in this hostel was disappointing. We were in a 4 bed dorm in what seemed like a shed. There was exposed brick walls and mdf covering parts of the wall. Not very homely at all. Mattresses were stained and the bathroom and bedroom had signs of damp. The shower curtain was disgusting! Social areas are good and the...

The hostel was nothing amazing, nor was it anything too terrible but for its usual guests, like young travellers, I think it should have more to give. Me and four other friends booked a five bedroom with an ensuite, like it says specifically in the website and what we paid for, but they only told us that they didn't have...

I was a bit worried before staying at this hostel, as my previous experiences with hostels have been exceptionally poor. However, I was pleasantly surprised when I was greeted by a very friendly staff member. As a group of four, we were welcomed and allowed into our room ahead of time. Unfortunately, one of the four of us was put...

This is a little hard to find when you first arrive, but a great place overall. The rooms were clean, and they offer breakfast of a croissant and juice for only 1 euro. The only downside is that reception is not open 24 hours - only from about 9am-12pm and 3pm-8pm.

We have just stayed here for 4 nights in a private double room. I don't want to sound like I'm moaning but there really isn't much I can say that's positive about this hostel apart from the staff were really helpful and friendly and the location is good. The negatives include the kitchen was disgusting, there are signs saying the...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
