Stayed here with a friend on a whim. Great hostel with large chilled common area great for meeting people. Arrived early in the day and they let us drop our bags so we could go and explore the town. The guy running the place took us to the uni square in the evening to check out the nightlife. Definitely a... More

I went travelling with friends in July and our final stay was at A Venice Fish. We arrived early to what previously planned, and the people were very welcoming! even though it was 'shut out' so they could do the cleaning, they let us in and chill on the sofas until our rooms were ready. They gave us all the... More

All the hostels we looked at in venice were this price (20 euro a night) so I guess its just expensive. We booked our beds aswalk-ins but there was a good number of people already staying. Clean- it looked lived almost by sime hippies but clean enough to be comfortable sitting around and sleeping. The bathrooms could use some work... More

I usually don't write reviews- being a pretty seasoned backpacker, I've stayed in my fair share of crappy places, but this one TOPS THE CHARTS. I walked in and within five minutes spotted three bed bugs on the bed. There were even small blood stains on the sheets. I was SHOCKED when the couple next to me said they just... More

Despite the other reviews complaining of bed bugs, me and my friends didn't spot any or suffer any bites. Sure, it wasn't the cleanest hostel - but it certainly wasn't very dirty. Staff were all very welcoming, especially Nick! The €5 pasta dinner with wine was a bargain too, and a great way to meet other travellers. Wifi a plus.... More

Pros: Easy to socialise with other travellers 5-10 minute walk from the station Guy who runs it is helpful and friendly Organised nights out so people could get to know one another etc Cons: It is VERY unclean. Bathrooms were gross (only 2 to be shared with the whole hostel), the sheets weren't clean and my friend woke up with... More

The highlight of this hostel is definitely the atmosphere and the staff! Always welcoming and helpful. It's in a great location, and they serve pasta and wine each night. It's like having a family meal with everyone sitting in the common area, which is lovely when you are backpacking. I had some of my best travelling experiences because of this... More

This place was pretty much a rundown party place. The party in the hall doesn't end till close to midnight and it is awesome if you are a party person. But if you plan on resting, this might not be the place for you. Toilets were pretty dirty even though it's cleaned everyday. Having only 2 showers between 20-30 pple... More

This place was fun and the staff are friendly but it is the filthiest hostel I have ever stayed in. The beds are riddled with bed bugs and have been for years (I didn't look at any reviews before visiting) and my girlfriend was bitten very badly. The shower/toilet areas (only two in the whole place) were filthy and smelly... More
