I stayed with my family so we were young and adult people aged 19-50.
The owner, Giorgio, was very nice and helped us with everything we needed; he gave clear explanations about the rules and gave us some good advices about the city.
The place itself has only 3 rooms which was great for us since we occupied 2 of them so we practically had the whole flat for us. We could come and go anytime we wanted and use the kitchen for dinner, for example.
Nicely enough, Giorgio filled the fridge with bread, butter, orange juice, milk and apples that we could use as we pleased, as well as tee, coffee, cereal and the whole kitchen itself. In the fridge there are shelves to leave your own food so that the other guests won't use them.
It is very well located just one street opposite the Mestre station. It was also clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was great! You can't stay hungry!
The 2nd day of our stay there was a transportation strike so we had no bus or train to take us to Venice city centre, so Giorgio gave us a lift in his car! THat was really helpful and we are so thankful for that, he literally meant it when he said "if you have any problem, call me on the phone and i'll help you", he trully did his best.
THe only problem was that the last night we didn't have airco, none of them was working so we had to open the windows to get some fresh air since it was quite warm. That's not a problem to me, since i can fall asleep deeply, but my elders had some trouble to sleep with the noise of passing cars on the street.
For the rest, everything went so much better than expected and we trully recommend this place to anyone else out there who is looking for a very good place to sleep, close to Venice (6min by train for only 1.10€) and at a very affordable price!!!
BTW: There is no problem about sharing the bathroom, the other guests are mostly respectful and since theres only 3 rooms you dont really have problems to shower or use it, since you hardly ever meet the other guests! And it's super clean at all times.
