Located less than 10 minutes walk from the Train station Santa Lucia, and built by the shores of the beautiful Gran Canal, L'imbarcadero is the perfect choice for budget travelers looking to have a great experience in Venice..
In a city without cars, our convenient location close to the bus and train stations offers our guests the advantage to arrive to the hostel really quick without having to carry bags and luggage throught the city. Also, the location is a perfect starting point for walking around and discovering the magical small streets of Venice, with great options for good local food and drinks, and a lot of hidden places to find! Everything is reachable by walking from here.
There is also a Vaporetto stop (water bus) just 20 meters from us at the Gran Canal, with routes that go to all the touristic attractions and other Islands, just a few steps away.
The structure of the hostel has been completely restructured and provides large rooms, common areas, and an equipped kitchen for the guests. All the rooms have big windows to appreciate the view, individual lockers, reading lamps, and plugs beside each bed. There are no bunk beds here, what allows people to interact more with their roommates and creates an excellent opportunity to make new friends!
The kitchen has been recently modified to give the guests a best experience. We provide coffee and tea the whole day, and in here you have all the utensils that you might need to cook, microwave, fridge and freezer, and space in the cabinets to store your goods. We also serve a continental breakfast in the morning for all the guests, that includes bread, dry bread, croissant, a variety of fruits and jams, cereal, yogurt, chocolate spread, milk, juice and a delicious fresh made Italian coffee.
All guests will receive their own keys to come and go as they wish. There is no lock out or curfew: our unique (but unconditional) rule is respect other guests and staff..
The staff is what makes different this hostel; we appreciate the small hostel environment, and we will always try to make your stay special, and be sure that you feel at home, so anything you need you can ask us! It is really important for us to create a clean, nice and harmonic environment to everyone that comes here.
At your arrival, you will receive a city map, and we always give great tips about the Touristic attractions, best advice on places to visit, where to eat, etc. We also offer free luggage storage for the guests arriving before check in time, or leaving the city later on check out day. We can also speak different languages! Check with us if yours is one of them!
Guest's satisfaction is our main goal, and thanks to many years of experience in the hostelling industry, we are quite proud of our achievement on this.
We hope to receive you soon and assure you will have fun staying in this wonderful city, and that you will enjoy sharing your experience with people from all over the world!!
