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

After wandering Venice for hours looking for a hostel that wasn't fully booked, I finally came upon A Venice Fish. It felt like salvation, when I with my huge backpack rang the buzzer of the unmarked building, only to hear a voice from the window asking if I had a reservation for the Venice Fish. I said no but, the... More

Took me an hour to find this place, there was NO sign. When I arrived, I was guided through a dark and creepy basement until I arrived upstairs. There is one main room with some couches, long tables, microwave, fridge, coffee maker. The beds aren't comfortable, and the whole place seemed really dirty. I've stayed in close to 20 European...

Stayed at the venice fish for two nights and had a great time! The facilities were super clean and spacious with a giant common room where everyone hung out. Had great conversations with travelers and especially the staff! Even had a free and yummy pasta dinner with wine on Saturday night, free tea and coffee all the time, and sometimes... More
