Venice, CA, December 02, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- HI Hostel Venice (Italy) has launched a new website featuring amazing information on Venice, its rich culture and the surrounding islands. The new design was aimed to professionalise the backpacking sector and attract more awareness to French, Italian, German, Spanish and English-speaking hostellers. While Italy is known for maintaing everything historic, this website is evidence that Venice also has a modern side as well.
On the site you can find crisp videos of how to arrive to the hostel, since Venice is a true labyrinth, itineraries during your Venetian stay and the different benefits of becoming a YHA member. They have specials during the Christmas season to kick off the new website launch with rooms as low as $20 per bed. This is the only true hostel in all of Venice, Italy, so take advantage of the promotion and wealth of information on the site. You can make online bookings directly through this site or HostelsClub.
The Youth Hostel has 269 beds and facilities include meals, tv room, common rooms, tourist information, luggage store for members, lockers and group facilities. The Hostel is beautifully located in an ancient, refurbished grain store on Giudecca Island in the heart of Venice and is open all year round.
Finding cheap hostels in Venice is not easy. Venice Youth Hostel is the only YHA hostel in town, giving you YHA standards of quality. (Please note: YHA Membership required; annual membership card costs €18 or 3€ more for the first 6 nights).
