Breathe easy along the Giudecca Canal in this clean, hassle-free hostel, complete with communal kitchen, wi-fi and, best of all, no curfew.

The hostel is down the block from a supermarket, canalfront cafes and gelaterie, plus handy vaporetto stops.
Dormitories come with bedside tables and lockers. Some come with canal views. Private rooms feature a safe and free towels, and all share a bathroom.
Guests can enjoy a shared kitchen and luggage storage is also available on site.
