Youth Hostels in Venice

Through the ages Venice has been known by many names; ‘Queen of the Adriatic’, ‘City of Water’, ‘City of Masks’, ‘City of Bridges’, ‘The Floating City’, and ‘City of Canals’. Described as ‘undoubtedly the most beautiful city built by man’ - and that's why today the island city in its entirety is listed as a World Heritage Site, along with its lagoon.

Every year all youth hostels in Venice are flooded by waves of backpackers, city hoppers, art fanatics and food lovers.

During the Middle Ages and Renaissance the Republic of Venice was a major maritime power and a staging area for the Crusades and the Battle of Lepanto, as well as a very important centre of commerce (especially silk, grain, and spice) and art in the 13th century up to the end of the 17th century. This made Venice a wealthy city throughout most of its history. It is also known for its several important artistic movements, especially the during the Renaissance period. Venice has played an important role in the history of symphonic and operatic music, and it is the birthplace of Antonio Vivaldi.

Venice has a Humid subtropical climate, with cool winters and very warm summers. Which makes it very popular with backpackers during spring time and autumn. However, youth hostels often offer special deals during Winter.

There are numerous attractions in Venice such as St Mark's Basilica, the Grand Canal, and the Piazza San Marco all located in the city centre. The Lido di Venezia is also a popular destination, attracting thousands of actors, critics, celebrities, and people in the film industry.

When visiting Venice be aware that there is accommodation and youth hostels available on the city island and on the mainland. Both are connected by public transport.

Venice has a contemporary art scene that lives up to its glorious art history. Besides the world renowned Biennial, Venice offers a fantastic variety of museums, art collections and galleries. Including The Peggy Guggenheim Collection of the 20th-century masters, which is the city's third most visited attraction. Make sure to enquire at your youth hostel about current events and offers.

Next to the arts, food is the Venetian’s forte. Most people agree that some of the city’s best gelato is served in Boutique del Gelato, a tiny outlet on busy salizzada San Lio. Traditional dishes from the Veneto are to be found all over the city – like oca in onto (goose in its own fat) or freshwater lagoon fish done in saor at Antica Adelaide. Or perhaps the best polpette (meatballs) in Venice at Ca d’Oro (Alla Vedova). Ask in your youth hostel for more tips on where to find authentic cuisine.

When backpacking in Venice the best way to enjoy the Grand Canal is on board a vaporetto (a rounded 230-passenger boat). Vaporetto tickets can be purchased at most stops, at tabacchi (tobacconists, identified by a white T on a black or blue background), at Hellovenezia offices (see Tickets & passes) and sometimes in youth hostels. On board you can only buy single tickets.

Venice is served by the Marco Polo International Airport, or Aeroporto di Venezia Marco Polo named in honor of its famous citizen. The airport is on the mainland and was rebuilt away from the coast.

Several bus routes link the mainland with Piazzale Roma via Ponte della Libertà, a road bridge connecting the historical centre of the city of Venice to the mainland.

Se službami hotelu jsme byli spokojeni, obsluha byla příjemná, čistota na jedničku, zařízení hotelu je, vzhledem k ceně za ubytování, naprosto vyhovující. Jen my jsme si zaplatili 4 lůžkový pokoj, tzn. že k posteli s nebesy, viz obrázky, je do poměrně malého pokoje napasována ještě nevzhledná poschoďová postel, ale jak už jsem psala, cena byla nejnižší, co jsme v dané době našli. Lokalita je vzdálenější od centra Benátek, ale využili jsme hotelový minibus - za příplatek.

We had a horrible stay in this place:

The place is just an appartment in which they rent the rooms. There is no staff there.

We had this problems:

1- Although we confirmed our arrival time by email the days before, when we arrived there was nobody waiting for us, so we had to call to their phone for someone to open for us. And yes, I had to pay the internetional phone call: from an spanish phone (in Italy) to an italian phone.

2- There is no internet or breakfast.

3- The place is quite simple. In the bedroom there were old furniture piled in a corner, with some spiderwebs.

4- The "double" bed are just two single beds side by side, and they separate depending on your position...

5- When we got back at night there was no energy in the house. We had to call again (and pay the call) to get some help. When they arrived they fixed it but the energy went out again. I did what they did to fix it but it didn't work anymore. After that we had to sleep in the dark and we couldn't take a hot shower because the heater worked with electricity. I sent them a text message, an email and left a note but never got any help or apology...

Although is cheap compared to the other hostels in Venice I dont recomend since we paid a lot for just a bed and a roof: no energy, hot water, breakfast or internet...

I DO NOT RECOMEND IT!

The only good think about it was that it is in the center. The rooms were dirty, they don't have lockers, and you don't even get your own key. You have to work it out with your dorm mates who most of the time you don't even know.

Très facile à trouver, personnel très agréable et parfaitement bilingue en anglais. Seul hic pour les fêtards, il n' y a plus d'accès à l'hôtel après 1 heure du matin. Seul hic pour les dormeurs : l'hôtel est assez bruyant et on entend beaucoup les gens rentrer le soir.

Bon rapport qualité-prix pour un voyage tout seul

Due to carnival, Venice is pretty much full for places that more people recommended. The room is super small but the location is great. For that price, I will definitely try another place for my next visit.

Questo è stato il mio secondo soggiorno all'ostello The Arches. . Ho confermato la scelta senza pentirmente perché è un posto estremamente carino, collocato in un edificio signorile e vicino alla stazione e a piazzale roma (comodissimo se si devono trasportare valigie). Tutte le camere (due da 4 letti ciascuna) hanno la vista sul canale e sono ben illuminate dal sole durante tutta la giornata (aspetto non di poco conto in una città umida come Venezia). L'ostello è gestito da ragazzi, io ne ho conosciuto due, entrambi stranieri (un argentino e uno, presumo, statunitense) che ho incontrato solo al momento del check-in. Le ospiti (tutte donne) sono in genere giovani turiste europee (anzi, mi è stato esplicitamente detto che gli italiani non ci vanno, e io non capisco davvero perché! Non ci sono difetti, a mio parere). C'è un unico bagno ma tenuto sempre in ordine e pulito, ampio e molto confortevole. Ci sono due lavandini e due docce (nel caso foste amiche potreste risparmiare un po' di tempo). Anche le stanze sono sempre pulite. In una ci sono due letti a castello e tre grandi armadi, nell'altra quattro letti singoli e i comodini ma nessun armadio. Nell'androne situato tra le camere e il bagno c'è un piccolo frigorifero eun bollitore per l'acqua liberamente utilizzabili La struttura dispone anche di una connessione wifi il cui segnale però non arriva molto bene fin alle camere (situate al secondo piano) ed è pertanto necessario scendere alla hall al piano terra in cui ci si puòò rilassare in due comodi divani. Concludendo, il mio giudizio è più che positivo e lo consiglierei senza remore a qualsiasi amica.

Me quedé en una habitación compartida para 4 mujeres y no tengo ninguna queja al respecto. La habitación muy amplia y limpia, con vista a uno de los canales de Venecia. Para llegar hasta ahí desde la terminal de trenes, se hace caminando sin problema. Son unos 10 minutos aproximadamente. Para comenzar a recorrer la ciudad conviene tomarse el vaporetto, que se tiene enfrente al hostel (por lo que en este sentido también es muy práctico). La vista de la habitación era hacia uno de los canales, muy pintoresco y lindo; así como se tenían varios restaurantes para poder ir a cenar en la zona.

El servicio en el hostel correcto. Sin duda alguna que lo recomiendo y volvería a ir a allí de nuevo.
