Enjoy this tip about Venice, Italy from our community!

“Woman-only hostel in Venice…

Cheap, safe sleeps in Venice! Take the vaporetto to Palanca stop (address: Giudecca 428), where you will find a wonderful women-only convent called Istituto Canossiano.

The nuns are sweet, gentle grandmotherly types and there is a kitchen, balcony, and laundry facility at visitors’ disposal. We met other women travellers from all over the world. It was safe, comfortable and most memorable.

P.S. Sheets and blankets were provided, no credit cards were accepted and doors closed at 10:00 P.M. The cost then was US$15 per night.”

Address: Istituto Canossiano San Trovaso,  Fondamenta de le Romite, Dorsoduro 1323, 30123 Venice
