Good to know: Booking the 5 Star Hostels on the official website is usually the cheapest place to book.
Location Advantage of COMBO Hostel
The location is absolutely amazing - on the main island!
The hostel is located on the main land of Venice. That makes it convenient and cheap to get around. Plus you won't have to worry about the ferry's scheduled. There is a pier right around the corner, which is also handy for day trips.
There is a big square right in front of the hostel, and right next door there is the police station. The location is very local, it is off the beaten path from the tourist trail. You will notice this as soon as you leave the main pedestrian street called „Strada Nova“. Strada Nova brings all people from the main train station to the famous Piazza San Marco.
Even though the hostel is not located in a touristy area, going to the tourist places as Piazza San Marco won't take you longer than 7 minutes by walk.
Also really great about the location of We Crociferi: There is a super local restaurant to enjoy local dishes with local prices just 1 minute away. It is LOCAL SECRET, and looks homely. It is a wonderful place to have dinner, lunch, or enjoy an Italian Aperitivo.
As for the breakfast, our favorite spot is the outdoor terrace over the canal. come here with your breakfast and coffee to start your day in the right mood. Quite sure this will be your favorite spot too!
What about the social vibes?
During our stay we met other travelers from around the world.
It’s quite common you meet backpackers exploring Italy, just spending a few days in Venezia.
Sure, that’s quite self-explaining, isn’t it?!
We_Crociferi comes now with a glorious bar on-site. They renewed the existing bar and offer a selection of local products, wines and cocktails.
Every week the hostel organizes an event like
pen stage night
Therefore, keep an eye on the event board.
Also a great detail, they offer different types and special versions of spritz beside of the classical one.
Also, they have their in-house café, which is a spot to meet fellow travelers or the students staying here. In their brand new café they offer breakfast, light lunch and dinner.
As mentioned, We Crociferi is as well a student accommodation, so you might also find some students who want to improve their English (definitely not during their exams period).
We Crociferi is not the classic backpacker hostel to meet and greet. Nevertheless, we met fellow travelers, had some chats, even went out for dinner at night.
It’s really easy-going, just like the real Venice itself. We enjoyed that.
