Reviews of Ostello Jan Palach - CPU Venice Hostels
This is a decent place to stay for a reasonable price. It is clean, spacious and everything is in order. I was happy to spend the time in Guidecca. It is a beautiful place and very commutable to Venice.
NO FREE INTERNET. It was the biggest problem actually. I missed also private baths in rooms. As for very short stay - it's enough, but for longer stay - inadeqate standard for foreigners. Lower leveled roomes should have also air conditioning, because we had to almost all the time having windows closed (=> room was in the ground level of kitchen patio; our windows were much below opposite's house windows; mosquitos at night were horrible !!!). In general - as a low cost hostel for short stay - it has good value per money because of suitable localisation and nice panorama of the old Venice.
Everything perfect with the accommodation. Really enjoyed staying there. I was aware that I would need to take the local transport boat to reach the Hostel, just didn´t know that it was that much expensive. (20€ for 24h 09/2012)
This was my second time in "Jan Palach". First time with professor in a double room with shared bathroom and now with my wife in a double room with private bathroom. Will come again when in Venice next time.
Nice place almost opposite to St. Mark Square. Quite good water bus connection (actually, there is no bridge, so you need to use water bus or water taxi to go there).
I would highly recommend this hostel. It was incredibly quiet & clean. The staff were lovely & really helpful. Having the kitchen to cook in was such a relief because we were needing a home cooked meal. It was well stocked with all the cooking equipment we needed & was incredibly clean. The bedroom was a good size & the beds really comfortable. I'd stayed in another hostel last time I went to Venice & the Jan Palach was 100% better than that. It is only a short, one stop ferry ride to San Marco Square but being out of the centre of town meant that it was quieter & less touristy. A great place to stay.
If you look for an affordable place to stay in venice, this is your place.
Very nice place, we enjoy it in good youth colective.
