A 10-minute walk from Santa Lucia Train Station, Ostello Domus Civica is set in Venice’s San Polo district. This hostel offers a shared terrace and rooms and beds in mixed dormitories, both with shared bathrooms.

The staff were the most lovely people ever, they made everyone feel really welcome and were always happy to help and give recommendations. The location was amazing, it had beautiful views and was close to the station and bus stop to the airport. Just know that it’s Venice and you have to walk 20-30 min to get anywhere (like Doge's and Piazza San Marco) lol. I didn't mind it at all as I was used to walking and expected it. The hostel was in an old building with a dated style, the rooms were smaller but were clean and the beds were comfortable.

Everything is fine. I am a baroque framer, amusing myself in cities and galleries for impressions. Accommodation in this city exceeded all expectations, painted new pictures. Thanks for the comfort and hospitality. Good luck!

Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    it is my 2nd stay here. we're talking here about 11 other persons, many without common sense, slamming doors, speaking too loud, etc. of course not the hostel's fault.... a lot of space downstairs, where you can socialize with other backpackers...

    Really nice budget option. Super comfortable beds! A lot of young people. I have been there during low session, so hostel didn't offer any special food or events but I have seen that they have. In the area are many nice and cheap local restaurants!

    The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The location is a bit out of the way, but easy enough to get to and much cheaper than staying on the main island. I felt safe in and around the hostel as a solo female traveller. The staff that checked me in were incredibly kind and helpful, although the staff on reception/bar the following morning were noticeably less so.

    Really great location right next to the water and 15mins walk from Piazzale Roma where the buses come. Host was very friendly and accommodating and gave great advice on where to eat, sights to see etc. The shared room was very comfortable and one of the best hostel stays in my experience. Also the sunsets on the harbourside directly outside the house were amazing each day.

    Ths location is amazing. There are tons of restaurants and bars around the hotel. Most major tourist sites are near. Personnel was polite. Staying in Venice isn't cheap so it's nice to have a budget option that's not a hostel. A cleaning lady came in every day and the room was cleaned well. The rooms are old but it's part of the charm.
