This place is horrible! It's dirty and disgusting. But the worst thing is the owner. He's a creep that lurks around, sneaking into the room at night, groping females and making racist comments. Do not come here, it's not worth it.
Do NOT stay here! I have never had such a terrible experience in my life! The owner was creepy as hell, making inappropriate advances at the women in my group, groping and touching whenever he could, and at one point he grabbed one of them...More
I had the worst experience at the "Venice garden". I checked in quite early to be able to attend a friend wedding. I was assigned a bed and given the entrance key. I was told I could come back at any time of the night....More
Me and my friend are travelling around Europe and this is the worst hostel that we have stayed in so far. Instead of writing a big long story, which I could about why it was terrible, I'll right a list. Which will probably still be...More
Initially was a bit worried about staying here because of the huge mix in reviews. After staying there for a few nights I can safely say this wasn't as bad as made out.
The major benefit of this hostel is that it is directly on...More
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby
shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.

Marco is a cannon for sure, and me and my friends did not feel safe at all! Where did you book it? If it's through booking com they should surely give you your money back, as me and several others have already reported... More
Marco is a cannon for sure, and me and my friends did not feel safe at all! Where did you book it? If it's through booking com they should surely give you your money back, as me and several others have already reported Marco and asked them to stop taking bookings for him.
If you end up going there, make sure you never leave your gf alone in the house with him, don't give him your contact information (although he'll probably have some of it from the booking), and just be very very careful. I never gave him my phone number, but he got it from the booking site and started harassing me even after I left... We pushed our beds together, and basically slept with one eye open. That this guy is still listed on booking sites is insane... Interact with him as little as possible, try not to get on his bad side (although it's really hard to know what sets him off, he gets furious over things you would never even think about...). Venice is amazing, so just enjoy it and stay out of the house as much as you can.
