We found Caterina house by accident and it proved to be a happy one. The hostel has 2 double rooms and has obviously changed hands since its last review. It is now run by a young Thai man. We were very happy there in a large, spotless room where the outside noise was minimal (difficult to find a quiet spot in Venice!) and the breakfast was excellent (toast in unlimited quantity, cereals, milk, tea, coffee and fruit) at a very cheap price for Venice. Our bathroom was on the other side of the breakfast room, but it was clean and easily accessible. The other room had an en-suite. The owner kept a very low profile but was charming and as helpful as his non-existent English allowed him to be. Cannaregio is a slightly less touristy area in Venice but within easy walking of all the sights. We couldn't believe our luck at finding such excellent, cheap accommodation in a city as expensive as Venice. We recommend it whole-heartedly.

Cheap price, but not recommend to stay. It's easy to smell mold in the house. And the showerhead with black mold, it's hard not to notice when you take a shower. And we always worry, we are not clean ourselves but make us more dirty. All of facilities in the house, I can't feel the owner want to keep running the business.
As we needed internet service to organise things when we were on travelling, we booked this hostel. Unfortunately, the internet service didn't work on the day we arrived. The house owner promissed us, she would take us to the other house which is the one that we booked to use internet in next day. In the second day, I phoned the owner to arrange time to meet her, she said "yes, no problem", then hanged up the phone. As we had to meet the owner, we finished our trip earlier on the day. However, she didn't show up, when I called her again and again, she said " I've called my brother, be patient, OK?" On that time, we had been waiting for almost two hours. And her brother did come back, but got into his room immediately. The owner asked us to go out to use payment internet service (it was raining), and she would give us money back and she would come to see us and take us to use internet tomorrow morning, 8:30am. Of couse, again, she didn't show up. Although, her brother didn't show up and let us use his laptop to check the things that we needed to do, but it is about 11:30pm. We already wasted our all night. I don't know what happen between the owner and his brother, but this was not our problem. We don't need the owner to promise us everything, but please be honest, then we can try to deal with the problem, not just sit there do nothing. We found the Caterina House didn't not provide internet service, but on their website one of the service is "free internet". I just want to say again, be honest. If you don't provide the service, please put information clearly.
