Expert review of Casa Per Ferie

Basic and bright with amazing views, this budget hostel is round the corner from St Mark's.

Located on the top floor (with splendid views) of the former orphanage where Vivaldi trained his all-girl choir in the 18th century, the church-owned Casa per Ferie is very basic, very clean and unbelievably convenient.

Location: 

Narrow Calle della Pietà leads to the lagoon-side Riva degli Schiavoni. St Mark’s Square is no more than five minutes’ stroll away.

Bedrooms: 

There are bright and clean single, double and dorm rooms, all with air-con and an adequate breakfast thrown in. Accommodation is basic but comfortable.

Check availability and compare prices for Casa Per Ferie

Public areas: 

Large sitting rooms have a decidedly institutional feel, but the views over Venice’s rooftops and the domes of St Mark’s basilica from here and from the terrace are quite stunning.

Eating and drinking: 

A rather spartan breakfast is included in the room price, and there’s a little bar which serves refreshments all day.

Who stays there: 

Backpackers, students, pilgrims and anyone seeking a very inexpensive base right at the heart of Venice.

Price advice: 

Doubles start to become worthwhile in mid-to-high high season when prices at more comfortable options elsewhere in the city soar; singles are a slightly better deal. If you’re travelling on a shoestring, however, the year-round tab for a bed in a dorm room is difficult to beat.

Pros: 
Extraordinary position right at the heart of the city
Cheap rates year-round
Cons: 
Very basic accommodation
