The decision was taken by the City Council last June 23rd 2011, when the new tax regulations were approved, after the Italian Government passed the national law on "Regulations on the subject of municipal federalism", according to which local authorities are entitled to enforce tourist taxes in order to finance tourism, maintenance of cultural heritage sites and environment, as well as public services.

Liked: The whole place was extremely clean which encouraged everyone to be clean also.

Disliked: No separate toilets so if the 2 showers were in use you had to wait. The manager controls the airconditioner and comes into the room to switch it off at night which seems really odd!

Liked: The owner is one of the friendliest people I have met on my trip around Europe. He was always willing to help us out looking for things to do and places to eat. He was a real asset to this hostel

Disliked: Only slight criticism is the fact that guests have to leave the hostel between 11am and 4pm to allow for cleaning. Other than that I can't find much wrong.

Liked: The location was great; quiet little street but only 10 minutes away from San Marcos Square. The host was friendly and very willing to help plan activities as well as train tickets.

Disliked: The rules were very strict and it didn't feel as homey as it could have because of this.

Liked: Room is clean and big. Atmosphere is good. Location also good. Because of it is situated midway between crowded places with tourist and quiet, beautiful place. Host is bright and cheerful. somewhat puerile but funny. If I were good at english conversation I will retort a jest on him. Anyway it was good experience in fantastic Venezia! Gracias

18 May 2015 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: great hostel! Extremely friendly and helpful owner, with recommendations for restaurants, groceries, sights, etc. and a free map to boot (an absolute necessity in Venice). Bathrooms clean and well-kept. Bathrooms are shared and it can be hard to get access sometimes. Note: towels not provided, but sheets and blankets are provided and seem clean and fresh. Lockers provided free, but keys can open multiple lockers, so that's awkward. Really good wifi. Easy to walk to main areas, but is in fairly out of the way area so it's easy to get away from touristy places. Directions to get to hostel are great and we found our way to the hostel fairly painlessly, even on our first night there! Don't forget to read the fine print on requiring you to bring cash and on the added fee for late checkins!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The owner of the hostel was extremely polite, helpful and friendly. I was given a map and information on the best places to eat and see. The hostel had compfier beds than the one I have at home and was very relaxed, the rooms are massive which is great. There are rules in place but as long as you are respectful enough to follow them then you won't have any issues! I would definately come back to this hostel, it's so close to the main square so if you get lost, head for it and you'll be fine! Overall great experience :-)

Disliked: Eva left no negative feedback.
