This hostel is great. Rooms are basic but have en suite bathrooms. Clean and comfortable and very central for a fraction of the cost of a hotel. There is a kitchen and dining room and big courtyard with tables and chairs.
I spent 1 night in a single room with toilet and bathroom on the second floor overlooking the lovely garden and courtyard. I was given a friendly welcome by the Religious Sisters of Mercy and guided to the reception. The Institute is extremely clean and...More
A friend and I shared a room here. We stayed on the ground floor and had access to a beautiful shaded courtyard. The rooms were comfortable and clean and we had our own bathroom and shower. It really is a sanctuary of quietness and tranquillity...More
I hesitate to praise the Istituto because it may attract the "wrong" sort of guest. For me, it is perfect. It is very quiet, very clean and very secure. But it is not a regular hotel or B&B. It is a religious institute, and nuns...More
This is an ideal place to stay if one would like to escape from the tourists hordes. Once passing through the door one is immediately aware of the restful calm of the Istituto with its tranquil courtyards. The staff are all charming and helpful. They...More
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.

The nearest vaporetto stop (No 1 line) is at Ca' Rezzonico which is about 5 to 7 minutes walk. From the vaporetto stop proceed down Calle Lunga S. Barnaba until you get to the Campo. Just past the café turn left into the arcade then walk over the bridge. Turn immediately right along the canal to the next bridge. The Istituto in directly in front of you on the opposite side of the canal so you will need to walk left up to the bridge. My understanding is that the bucintoro shared taxis stop at Ca'Rezzonica. The Airport water busses also stop at Ca'Rezzonica which is very convenient but there is no ticket office there, only a machine, so if you do not have a return ticket you will have to buy your airport bus ticket from the tabac or the ticket office at the Academia. I hope this has helped you.
