I had my doubts from reading the reviews of this hostel on tripadvisor, as I was on a tight "student" budget I decided a bed is a bed at the end of the day and being the cheapest accommodation in Venice, I went ahead and booked a three night stay 11th Dec 2010-14th Dec 2010.
The location is ideal, directly in walking distance from all major tourist hot spots in Venice, free internet and wifi, a nice welcome as I entered the hostel,.
I first taught when reading the directions from the bus terminal in Venice that it was going to be a tricky one and as I dont speak a word of Italian I found it quite worrying but it was very easy to find.
Besides all the positives there was two downsides to the hostel, I was a little cold at night but I helped myself to an extra blanket which was available in the room free of charge the other downside was that I didnt come across any other backpackers but I suppose it was my luck that was out and not the hostel itself.
Overall I would 100% recommend this hostel to everybody, I didnt experience any bed bugs or any problems with the hostel that others seemed to have experience and I am a picky one!
I hope you all enjoy your stay at Archie's Rooms!More
