Welcome to our hostel

Located in the heart of Venice in a refurbished grain store on Guidecca Island, Ostello Venezia offers great views of the city in a lively and friendly atmosphere. Palladian churches, the Doge's Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection are all within easy reach.

This Venice hostel offers a great selection of rooms, from dorms with bed lights and privacy screens, to quads and private en-suites. There’s free Wi-Fi, a lounge to relax and socialise in, a bar to grab a drink and a travel shop where staff will help you plan your visit to all the hidden treasures of the city.

Ostello Venezia is a great starting point to discover Venice and the neighbouring islands of Murano, known for its glass work; Burano, known for its brightly colourful homes and knitted fabrics; and Torcello, an ancient site known for its majestic Romanesque cathedral.

Incredible location, very friendly staff and comfortable cafe downstairs for travelers to hang out and meet. Only improvement would be that there were a few out of service bathrooms (lights, lock on the door) which seem like quick fixes

1) Falta de sistemas de reciclaje de residuos. 2) El periodo de silencio dedicado al descanso nocturno no está claro o no se respeta: las lavadoras y secadoras de ropa funcionan en horas de madrugada. Debería regularse

Reservamos 2 adultos y m hijo de 14 años y no le permitieron alojarse.No lo sabía los y m indicaron que tenìamos que buscar otro alojamiento en la ciudad.El personal no fue de gran ayuda y es una pena ese trato porque te ves en una ciudad desconocida, cansados y esperas un poco más de ayuda.Llevábamos 11 días en albergues,viajando x Italia y no nos había pasado nada parecido.Cdo haces un trabajo así es muy imp la parte humana. Espero que este comentario sirva para mejorar ese trato.Gracias.

Awesome hostel with great people, food, drinks and ambiance. We stayed in a 12 female dorm and it had a pretty tight space, with not a lot of room to change or even get the trunk put of under the beds. The bar/restaurant was great and the staff was always super nice and helpful. Great hostel to stay at, would surely recommend. The only thing to consider is that it is in the island Giudecca so you will have to take a water taxi/bus to go to the main island (Venezia) which are 7.50 euro per trip.

We really like the location and how clean the hostel was. Only thing that I didn't like was the noise after 10pm. I think it should be a rule and maybe then people would be more respectful to others rest. Also breakfast was pretty good but I would include brown buns not the white only.
