Well, well well, let’s see what’s happening in Venezia! This city is awesome and a true backpacking mecca with plenty of hostels and some really cool campgrounds which embody the social interaction of hostelling. The most interesting thing about pulling all the stats from Venice was the sheer amount of budget accommodation and the huge differences between the booking engines. Hostels in Venice would appear pretty difficult to book if not for Hostelzoo, as they don’t all list with the same booking engines.
There’s a huge total of 426 budget properties available to book online in Venice, 35 of which are hostels. Obviously Hostelzoo has all 35, but here’s a breakdown of available hostels from our booking partners:
- Hostelworld = 07
- Hostelbookers = 19
- Hostelsclub = 19
- Gomio = 10
The cheapest hostel at the moment is Ostello S. Fosca @ €23pn for a 4 bed dorm, but you could also opt for a 3 share tent at Camping Jolly for €7.20
The top 3 rated hostels in Venice are:
94% Venice Gold
“This is by far the best place to stay in Venice, and for a terrific price. The owner is extremely gracious and welcoming…”
93% Silk Road
“This is by far one of the best hostels I stayed at in Italy. Great bathroom, facilities and even a breakfast prepared for you…”
84% Sweet Dreams
“The staff was very friendly, breakfast was included, the rooms were clean and we felt our things were secure.”
Also worth mentioning are the 3 budget camping alternatives. Check them out if you’re really on a tight budget.
Venice dorms are priced from €23 - €37pn and private rooms start from €65pn. A nice example of the Hostelzoo availability comparison was @ Ostello S. Fosca on the 27th and 28th of June, which was booked out on Hostelworld but still had beds available on Hostelsclub.
