Youth Hostels in Venice

Looking for a hostel in Venice? Look no further, all the good deals in Venice are on Dorms.com. Like thousands of other people every month, book your hostel securely at the best price in all neighbourhoods of Venice. On this site, you can easily find a hostel downtown, in a trendy neighbourhood; a youth hostel in the student- university district, close to bus or train stations, airports or major attractions of Venice.

Welcome to Venice

Art, bridges and carnivals: the ABC of Venice. Or should that be alleys, basilicas and colonnades? Venice is one of the most distinctive and attraction-packed cities in Europe, not to mention one of the most outrageously beautiful. This floating metropolis, carved up by canals and stitched back together by bridges, somehow manages to pack an amazing range of hostels into its small city centre. Whether you’re looking for a cheap hostel, a group-friendly hostel, or a downtown hostel where you can connect with fellow backpackers, Venice has it. But you don’t want to hear about hostels, do you? Outside that dorm are enough jaw-dropping architecture, lip-smacking cuisine and fun-filled festivals to last a lifetime. You’ll get lost more than once, but hey – isn’t that what it’s all about?  

Stroll around Burano

The colourful homes, pretty church and friendly folk of this fisherman's island north of the centre make it one of Venice's most unique attractions, drawing curious tourists and small groups of backpackers away from the more famous sights. Take a number 12 vaporetto out for a free stroll.

District: Quartiere Murano,S. Erasmo

Head to the beach

Get out of the hostel dorm, escape those busy streets and enjoy some beach time. The Lido is a sleepy seaside strip for most of the year, before bursting into life during Venice Film Festival. Go to sunbathe, surf, skateboard or just sip cocktails while staring out over the Adriatic.

District: Quartiere Lido,Malamocco,Alberoni

Delve into Jewish history

Learn the story of Venice's unique Jewish community, confined to an urban island in 1516, at the Museo Ebraico. Take one of their hourly tours to see three ancient synagogues.

Address: Sestiere Cannaregio, 2902/b, 30121 Venice

District: Sestiere Cannaregio

Rialto Bridge

Venice's most famous canal-crosser, Ponte di Rialto was erected in the 16th century by architect Antonio da Ponte. The single-stone arched bridge, and its shops, remain of the city's top draws.

Address: Sestiere San Polo, 30125 Venezia, Italy

Landmark: Rialto Bridge

Galleria dell'Accademia

A must for backpackers who crave culture, this is one of the Italy's great art galleries. It’s home to works by Titian, Canaletto and da Vinci. Entry costs €15 (€12.50 for EU citizens between 18 and 25), with additional costs for exhibitions.

Address: Campo della Carità, 1050, 30123 Venezia, Italy

District: Sestiere Dorsoduro

Ca’ d’Oro

The intricate Gothic facade of the ‘golden house’ overlooks the Grand Canal, and hides an equally exquisite interior, with a particularly fine inner courtyard and a collection of artistic and archaeological treasures.

District: Sestiere Cannaregio

Landmark: Ca' d'Oro

St. Mark's Basilica

Many new arrivals head straight from their hostel to this 11th century church, a major Venice landmark. Its soaring dome makes it easy to spot. Enjoy the mosaics, icons and bejewelled altar for free, and climb the 100-metre-tall tower for views over the city and – if it's a clear day – out to the Dolomites.

Address: San Marco, 328, Venezia, Italy

District: Sestiere San Marco

Doge's Palace

Once the political nerve centre of Venice, this spectacular 16th century palace combines Islamic, Renaissance and Gothic architecture and overflows with stunning furnishings and paintings.

District: Sestiere San Marco

Piazza San Marco

Flanked by St. Mark's Basilica to the south and Rialto Bridge to the north, Venice's cobblestoned central district has been the political and commercial heart of the city for a millennium. The main landmarks are thronged with tourists and backpacker groups, but it’s still a wonderful area to explore.

District: Sestiere San Marco

Lido di Venezia

Occupying a bone-shaped island to the south of the centre, this area is home to the city's seven-mile beach and plays host to the Venice Film Festival. There aren’t many youth hostels here, but it’s a great place to come for some beach time and to escape the busy tourist areas on the main island.

District: Quartiere Lido,Malamocco,Alberoni

San Polo

Northwest of San Marco, and just south of the cluster of cheap hostels in Cannaregio, San Polo is renowned for its centuries-old Rialto market, its brick-built Santa Maria dei Frari church and its selection of fine restaurants.

District: Sestiere San Polo

Venice Carnival (January)

The perfect time to book a Venice hostel. A masked ball has been held in the city since the Middle Ages, but that's just a part of this January street party. Expect live music, theatre, juggling, fire-eating and more.

Venice Film Festival (September)

This acclaimed film fest is held on the Lido in September, when the world's greatest movie stars descend on the city's fine beach. Public screenings are available.

District: Quartiere Lido,Malamocco,Alberoni

Festa del Redentore (July)

Founded to commemorate and to celebrate Venetian's survival of the great plague of the 1500s, this semi-religious July festival features pontoons of boats, fireworks displays and waterfront picnics.

Address: Church of the Santissimo Redentore Redentore, Sestiere Giudecca, 30133 Venezia

District: Ruote

Venice Art Biennale (June-November, every two years)

A cultural institution begun in 1895, the Biennale showcases the work of countless international artists in venues across the city. Held June to November each year.

Regata Storica (September)

First held in the 1200s to welcome royalty to the city, Venice's September regatta remains a huge event. Locals, tourists and backpackers line the Grand Canal to watch races that feature over 300 traditional boats.

District: Sestiere Dorsoduro

Festa di Liberazione (August-September)

Although by day, this August-September festival means sombre debates related to the country's liberation, by night the fest bursts into life with incredible salsa, rock, blues and reggae concerts.

Address: Campo Erberia 30125, Fondamenta Vin Castello, 145, Venezia, Italy

District: Sestiere San Polo

Venice Jazz Festival (July)

With the tagline ‘music, art, parties’, this offshoot of the Biennale ticks all the boxes for backpackers. Expect electro and arty pop, a glamorous crowd, and of course incredible visuals.

Rosticceria Gislon

Just a short walk from Rialto Bridge, this traditional Venetian deli restaurant serves up perfect backpacker fare: fresh pizzas, pasta, meat and seafood dishes.

Address: 5424 Calle de la Bissa, Venice

Mercato del Rialto

District: Sestiere San Polo

The Brek

This handy Italian mini-chain has a branch right by the train station, which puts it on the doorstep of some great cheap hostels. It offers tasty, great-value cafeteria food. Enjoy a starter, pizza, side salad and beer for €6.90.

District: Sestiere Castello

Phone: 041 522 2901

Get away from the tourists: You needn't travel far from the tourist centre to see a dramatic drop in prices (and rise in quality). Choose pizza, chicheti and house wine in the suburbs and you'll save a small fortune.

Buy a Chorus Pass: If you plan to visit a number of churches during your stay in Venice, consider a Chorus Pass. €12 gets you access to 18 of the city's churches. Single entry is usually €3. www.chorusvenezia.org

The best is free: The greatest joy in Venice is walking aimlessly, getting lost among the city's cobbled streets, criss-crossing canals and quaint bridges. And doing that doesn't cost you a penny.

Airports

The main points of entry are Venice Marco Polo (served by British Airways, Easyjet, and Lufthansa) and Treviso Airport (home to Ryanair and Wizz Air). To get to the city centre hostels from Venice Marco Polo, you can take the ATVO Venezia Express bus, which runs to Piazzale Roma in around 20 minutes, costing €6. The ACTV-run Aerobus (line 5) is another option, but costs €8. Alilaguna water buses also serve San Marco (lines A, B and R). From Treviso Airport, use bus services operated by Barzi and ATVO.

Rail

Venice Santa Lucia train station offers easy access to domestic and international train networks (often via Mestre). Rome and Milan are just a few hours away, while overnight trains can take train passengers as far afield as Munich, Paris, Vienna, Budapest and Moscow.

Bus

Venice's main bus station is in Piazzale Roma, though this almost exclusively serves the airports. Inter-city and international travel is easiest by train from the nearby Santa Lucia station.

Transportation

Venice is the world's only pedestrianised city, and one of its greatest pleasures is walking the streets. But if you want to get around quicker, try the vaporetti (water buses). Single fares are expensive (typically €7) but you can buy multiple journey tickets covering time periods from 12 hours (€18) to seven days (€60). Water taxis are also available to flag down.
