Awful place, got bitten by some unknown bug and got serious allergies now, I'm suspecting fleas. I had no electric outlet by my bed, no personal lights. No one at the reception, couldn't leave my bag in the check out day. To be avoided!!!!

Dear Guest, I assure you there are no fleas or bugs in our facility. The hostel is located in Venice, City built on the water and famous for its humidity, we also have many green spaces is possible to find mosquitoes already at the end of February.

Nice central place, friendly staff, but bedbugs from the first night on. I had to sleep two nights on the floor, because no alternative accomodation was provided. The generally kind staff just denied any bedbug bits all over my face and chest. No compensation and even no washing of my infected sleeping clothes was offered. Just the excuse that it...

We apologize for the problems encountered during your stay in our facility. As we told you when you were with us, we do regularly and preventively de-bug treatment. I'm sorry that we did not change your bed from the first night but the hostel was fully booked. Unfortunately we don’t have a laundry service for guests yet, but we are...

Ostello santa fosca is in a perfect location for a place to stay, right in the centre of the action but super quiet in the night. The people who run it are absolutely lovely and can't do enough to make sure you have a great stay. Highly recommend for this lovely city. Alex from Liverpool :)

I stayed for 1 night in the hostel, the room was okay and the bathroom as well. But there wasn't any windows so it was hot in the room, and it was not even summer. Otherwise the hostel is in a nice location.

I'll break this down for you guys - but if you don't feel like reading, it was nice and worth it. Facilities: The shared facilities are extremely nice and clean, the luggage storage and common area/kitchen are up to date and nice. Rooms: I stayed in a 4 bedroom shared room, it was dated feeling but not in a bad...

We spent one night here in a nice double room with view to a canal, and we had really positive impressions. Perfect location non just because of its centrality, but also thanks to the more calm, quiet neighborhood, but with bars' zone in a few minutes walk. The building complex is amazing, with the garden included, a piece of peaceful...

I visited Venice over the hot summer. The accommodation had a private bathroom - very dirty with mold everywhere. I actually preferred using public toilets and felt absolutely disgusted to go inside the shower. The bedroom was okay. We had two single beds that were comfortable. Please think twice about renting the place over the summer, we were covered in...

Lovely hostel in the middle of it all, but still tucked away and peaceful. At least most of the time. There's a school connected to the hostel and I had a hard time sleeping one night cause there was a party at the school and with no air-con just had to keep the windows open..also, surrounded by water you can...

While our hostel visit was good, it was largely due to location and the travellers we met. This hostel features warm showers and a bed to sleep on, plus some tea and a basic kitchen in the lobby. However, their office hours are short (1-8pm?), the rooms are creaky and loud, and the locks are quite weak. The price point...

One of the few hostels on the mainland of Venice and therefore very few complaints to be had!! More expensive than most hostels for what you get but definitely worth it to be on the main island, only a 20 minute walk from the station if that and everything is reachable on foot, wifi was down when I visited and...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

“Don't stay here over the hot summer with no air condition and get bitten by hundreds of mosquitoes.”
  • All of these bites were overight bites. This room was swarming with mosquitos.
  • The hotel was swarming with mosquitos and our skin would bleed onto the sheets
  • Stained curtains
  • Bedroom.
  • Filthy shower with mould and dirt all over.
  • A very mouldy bathroom. I doubt it had been cleaned before we arrived.
