Great budget hostel.
Super friendly staff. Very well kept dorm room. Comfy bed. Perfect for exploring Venice without being stuck in with the crowds all the time. The ferries are frequent and super fast; probably quicker to get to Piazza San Marco from Giudecca by ferry than from other hostels in Central Venice.
