This place is billed as an old convent converted into dorm/hostel style accomodations, however, our accomodations were not like a hostel at all. My boyfriend and I had a private room with 2 beds and our own bathroom. The room was very bare bones but contained the essentials (even had a small TV) and was clean. The location was great,...

We had a fantastic stay at this hostel last week. Although quite basic - our room had a TV and the bathroom looked brand new. Everything was spotlessly clean. This hostel was fairly quiet - no huge socialising oppurtunities, but it was nice to escape the noisyness of the touristy areas of Venice. Only slight complaint would be that it...

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was brilliant. We had to book a long time ago and it felt a little touch-and-go as to whether we had made a proper reservation because its done via fax but when we got there we were not disappointed. The hostel is very central - you can walk to St Marks sq...

My husband and I travelled to Venice as part of our honeymoon in May 2005. Our stay at the Foresteria Valdese Hostel was one of the most memorable parts of our jouney across Europe; for positive reasons. Check-in is restricted to certain times in the day; however, you are able to leave your luggage in a storage room if you...

This must be the best deal possible for lodgings in Venice. Some hostel/dorm style rooms but also a number of private rooms (book well in advance!) Our room was small but delightful--twin beds, a television and a wardrobe pretty much filled the space. But the walls were frescoed and we enjoyed a balcony overlooking the canal. It is a little...

Our college group stayed in this hostel the week before Easter. It was simple, clean, comfortable. Quite difficult to locate but walking distance to everything. The bathrooms were clean and well furnished. Recommend it to anyone looking for simple, affordable and comfy. The reception area is only open a few hours a day, though.

This was quite possibly the most beautiful place I stayed in in Europe. The ceiling frescoes in the mens dorm were definitely a highlight. Located well within walking distance to many of the attractions in Venice it was a bit hard to find the first time.The accomodation was very cheap and they supplied breakfast.They also have classical concerts in the...

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
