The City of Venice enforced a new tourist tax for visitors staying overnight, starting from August 24th 2011. 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. The amount is of 3 euros per person per night . NO PETS ALLOWED

Liked: The owner keeps it very clean including making your bed every day. It is small and quiet.

Disliked: Do NOT mention that the place is hard to find upon your arrival. Myself and other guests had the conversation that this immediately put the guy who I believe is the owner in a bad mood. From there, everything he said was condescending and rude. I literally didn't even like to see him. I've stayed in plenty of hostels and never had a bad experience with the staff. So yeah, the place is hard to find. There is no sign just a tiny buzzer with Venice Gold written next to it which you will only see as you're at the door. There is an extra 3 euro per day tax additional to the price you see online. You have to be off site from 11-2. The atmosphere is quite poor in that people only hang out in their rooms. I did meet a couple of cool people in mine but definitely doesn't have a place to hang out. Lastly, despite screaming at you to whisper when you get back at 1130, this guy starts blaring terrible pop music at 8 am which you can hear through the door all day.

The property's response is...

Liked: The guy working there (sorry I forgot your name) was awesome. Had tons of recommendations for the area which were all great. The hostel was very clean and the Wifi is super fast.

Disliked: There were 3 keys to get into the hostel/room and they are these huge, ancient looking keys that are inconvenient to carry around. There isnt much social life at the hostel, so if you are looking to meet a lot of people and go out with them, this probably isnt the most ideal place.
