Really enjoyed staying in this hostel, the three people working there (I think their names were kiara, ruby and anata? ) were really helpful with information on places to see in the city, all the people I met were great too. I think I read a review about there being bed bugs but I had no issues and I saw...

Actually the location is not that bad, but it's difficult to find since the only sign of this hostel is on the hostel building. I need to circling around the alley to get to the hostel, and it happened three times. The staff at the reception are nice, especially the lady with the short hair. She gave me Venice map...

This is a quaint accommodation with shared bedrooms. Everybody is very nice and because it is so small it is easy to meet people. Both Ingrid and Gina were very friendly and helpful. Also in a good location.

I liked this hostel because of the staff. It was quite expensive when I was there for a hostel but the location is good. The rooms are spacious and generally clean. The free breakfast is not impressive but for budget travelling, it's Ok.

I had a great experience - kind staff and very friendly owner. Very helpful with my transition to Venice, extremely knowledgeable. Moreover I slept remarkably well and found the facilities to be quite nice.

I was supposed to stay there for 2 nights and we quit after the first one. I woke up at 3am on the first and only night because of bedbug bites. I had them on me, underneath my bed, on my luggage, on the wall adjacent to our beds, and then I started to pick them off my wife's t-shirt...

Travelling around Europe and overall this is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. Staying here feels like your living in somebody's house except it's well below basic hygiene standards. Bathrooms are disgusting, the girls that work here sit on the backside all day and do not clean, this has meant that the bathrooms are filthy. Also this hostel...

Barely ever someone on reception, the place was not clean and as a group of girls we didn't feel safe. Random people would walk through our room to get to a storage room therefore our room was never locked. Bathrooms seemed grotty and the decor throughout was very dim and messy. We weren't given all the bed linen and did...

Staying in Santa Croce

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighbourhood identity.
