Great place to stay. Wifi & breakfast included. No problems with wi-fi at all! Although an all-female hostel, there are 2 men who work there, but they are just so lovely. Very welcoming and met some amazing solo travel companions whilst in Venice. Breakfast was lovely too. Would definitely recommend.
There was about 3 inches of water in the main entrance hall when I arrived but, staff were kind enough to lend everyone a pair of new wellington boots to borrow!
Location great staffs
friendly and warm!!!!! Two guys running a female hostel!! Drinking and laughing~
The bed is somehow noisy at night~
the whole hostel is like a great historical house, big kitchen and eating place, plendid bathroom, and the staff are very nice!
though the ground floor was flooded but... This is Venice!
Great staffs, they are always friendly and helpful! Clean big room and bathroom. Very comfortable and calm.
There was a some bags and I was bitten by them everywhere on my body,,,, Wi-fi was little bit weak.
location is very nice! staff was very kindly.
There are have bathroom is two. so I sometimes waited for people. and first day I couldn't find gusthouse. because there haven't big name sign.
Spacious rooms, cooking area, large bathrooms, friendly and helpful staff, excellent location short walk from San Samuele vaporetto stop and easy 5 minute walk to piazza San Marco
Beds were very creaky, poor lighting in the rooms with no heating, although the main bathroom was huge the shower stopped working 2 days in. Paying for location.
Good location and very very nice staff.
It will be better if could offer small package shampoo
everything you can dream about staiying in Venice. big flat, super clean, big bathrooms, kitchen where you can cook by your own or, all of a sudden, to try something special from the hosts :) thank you so much for such a wonderful experience, I really wish to come back. Say hello to cat:) Girls, don't even think about other places to stay.
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~
