At this excellent budget option just 10 minutes from the train station, rooms are simple but adequate, and most have air-conditioning and views across the canal or campo. Note that there is no elevator (some rooms are up three flights of stairs), and no breakfast is provided (but you get 50% off breakfast next door). Rooms have no TVs, but Wi-Fi is strong. The dorm rooms are a good deal (21€ –25€ per night; guests under 35 only).
