First arriving in venice as a single traveller was a little crazy but when I got to friendly venice I felt right at home. Staff was great, met other amazing travellers and was stoked about the free breakfast and coffee every day which I did not expect. I liked it so much I booked an extra night.
The owner was amazing. She was so helpful and friendly and accommodating The other people who stayed there were friendly as well
This place was awesome. Great staff, clean, center location! A++++
I loved it! The location is just perfect, the place is really clean and i loved the bed, really comfy. Bathrooms are the cleanest ever, and the kitchen looks like its nicely equipped, although I didn't get the chance to use it since I was walking around Venice all the time. But the best thing about this place is the staff, they are genuinely sweet and helpful, so sending out a big kiss to Luciano and Giacomo, thanks for everything, you made my stay a really pleasant experience! I hope I get to visit Venice soon again. :)
Small note, even though the sign for the hostel is really small (name tag on the buzzer), it is really easy to find it. I just went to San Stefano Square, and followed the numbers on buildings to find the one that was written in the address.
The staff were exceptional. The breakfast included in the price was very good and the location was perfect. I would recommend it to all my friends and would love to return myself
The hostel is located a short walk across the bridge from the vaporetto stop, simple breakfast provided, bathrooms are clean. Staff is helpful in providing directions and suggestions on places to visit.
WiFi is only available in the common areas and drops out a bit, but it's good enough for a short stay
This place was awesome! The staff were so police and helpful. It was very clean. The beds were comfortable. Wifi was very good. Breakfast wasn't bad either. It was so central to everything. Couldn't have asked for any more really. Luciano and the staff even gave recommendations on where to go and what to see. I highly recommend anyone visiting Venice to stay at this beautiful and wonderful hostel. Friendly Venice lived up to its name. It really is friendly. Thank you Luciano and Friendly Venice for making my visit one where I will always reflect upon with a smile!
Everything is very nice! And thanks a lot for sending my cards! Hope to see you next time!
I had such a great stay here. Great central location which was easy to find. I met some amazing people from all over the world and loved all the staff who were great at helping with any queries. It was a fantastic weekend and Lucianno is a great host, so welcoming and funny, he made me smile everyday. Rachel (Scotland)!!!!:)
Luciano & co. were more like friends than anything - I felt completely at home and wished I didn't have to leave!
Wifi connection can be quite erratic but to be honest, this wasn't really a problem since I was out exploring Venice more than anything!
I felt like I was at home. :)
Friendly and beautiful, really nice atmosphere. Great location!
Luciano (the host), and the other staff were extremely helpful and really made Friendly Venice feel like a home away from home. The rooms were spacious, and reasonably quiet considering mine fronted onto the campo- but this gave me an interesting view each day and night. A light breakfast was included. The hostel is spotless and very secure with personal lockers provided for valuables. Location is very central to many attractions in Venice.
Just make sure you get directions about how to find Friendly Venice before you arrive. Like many places in Venice it is not identified with an obvious sign, and it is not an easy task to find it. This can be a challenge (especially at night while hauling a suitcase up and down stairs over all the canals!!
The location, friendly atmosphere with Luciano, and the church bells ringing in the morning.
Having to leave Venice so soon.
They did their best to make you happy and comfortable. You will know when you are there. Please book them. Everything is wonderful. Enjoyed so much~
The location for the price was exceptional. Marcello and other staff members were lovely Breakfast was a delightful treat included in the nightly fee. I think quite possibly the best deal in Venice for ladies only. Very very safe
There was nothing about it not to like. Exceptional on all levels
It's female hostel,staff is boy,they are realllllllly cute, In the hostel you will feel like home,location is very nice . I really reccomend
- Luciano is adorable and the best host you can imagine - loads or space in bed- and bathrooms - nice living room and dining room/kitchen
- wifi signal isn't really strong, but hey, why worry about wifi when you're on holiday?
i love all of things in Friendly Venice!
It was absolutely a great stay. The host is very friendly n helpful, offers full introduction of touring in Venus with so many more information, haha writes perfect Home in Chinese character. And the house is very cozy enough, very clean n comfortable. Easy walk to all major touring sites.
Host freindly, helpful and considerate in placing me within the facility given I was a bit older than most of the others.
I loved staying here. The staff was super helpful, they give you a tour of the place, make you feel like you are home and are super helpful. I met some wonderful people here and the manager, Luciano, joined us for drinks. Its a great place, great people. I highly recommend it.
I had to leave :( The wifi was bad but I didn't care because I loved it so much here.
i like the lokers for the bags. i like the breatfast i like the keys for the in to the hotel
dont have a big label with the name .... and i tryed to found for more the 30 minutes.
Friendly Venice lives up to its name in every way. The staff, Luciano and Ilaina (sp? she cleaned and was a sweet heart) were amazing. Luciano waited outside for my friend and I to arrive, even though it was late in the night, and still greeted us with a smile. The other guests were great, the dining room set up a family like atmosphere during breakfast which allowed for fun conversation and friendship. Because of Friendly Venice, I have new friends from around the world. The location was perfect too! Close to major sights and several restaurants close by. Thank you Luciano, miss you!! (I know you're reading this ;) )
Nothing but the Wifi working only well in the living room, which is probably a good thing that gets everyone out and about.
