Fantastic hostel! I’ve stayed in over 80 hostels and this was in my top 2! Staff where amazing, which is important to creating a good vibe in the hostel (which this hostel had) the hostel was also very clean and dorms where spacious and comfortable.

It is near-impossible to encapsulate the experience of staying at Samesun Venice. There’s just something about that place that makes for the most amazing times with friends new and old. Dominic, the activities coordinator ensures that everyone feels both welcome and constantly entertained… I would recommend this place to anyone whether they are looking to be entertained or mere relaxation.
