You're behind three locked doors at all times, so I always felt safe. Everything was very clean, including the bathrooms which I hear can be rare for hostels. My only critique is that by time the shower was free the water was ice cold.

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
