The hostel location is ideal being on venice main island and approx 15 mins by foot from main lucia station. Nice and friendly staff. No air con and only 1 fan for 10 bed dorm - very hot at night. The place is a little dingy in my opinion, shower room was very unkempt and looked like it had not... More

First of all, the place is the most filthy thing I've ever seen in my whole life. The beds are infested with bedbugs, the bathrooms are disgusting and when we returned in the night, a male employee was screaming at us, saying that we did not pay. He demanded that we pay him 135 euros or he would "call the... More

Do not stay here. Unless you want an adventure with drunk owners, bed bugs and cold showers, stay away from A Venice Fish. Bed bugs should be a good enough reason not to stay here, but there are many more. The owner didn't understand when we asked for sheets for the beds and had loud music playing whilst we were...

Was booked to stay for 5 nights. After my first night, the two hostel workers (who people have reviewed to be really great) quit and left because management was so awful. I found out how when I discovered bed bug bites on my legs and then later I found a bug in my bed. I told management who promised me... More

Rude, ignorant, money seeking staff. Fans had no safety cap. No cleaners employed in entire hostel. Bed bugs prevalent. We left with our bodies covered in bites and have since had to wash all our clothing items at a high temperature. Bathrooms are disgusting and there are only two for the entire hostel. Tissue paper rarely replaced. The shower door... More

This is literally the least favorite hostel that i've ever stayed at. They clearly have bed bugs, and I and my other 2 friends were covered with bites after staying for 2 days (we also had lots of mosquito bites, but it is easy to tell the difference). In addition to that the whole place is dirty. The bathrooms are... More

The hostel was a great surprise to start my trip. The location is excelent, just in the midle between the S.Lucia train station and the S.Marco square. The hostel itself had all the comodities a traveler can ask for. So I would like to highlight the staff that works there are awsome, very knowlageble, friendly, joined in on the hostle... More

Although the staff were incredibly nice, there was nothing they can do about the bed bugs as the owner of the hostel REALLY needs to get it fumigated. My friends and I stayed there for 2 nights on July 23rd and 24th. We found only 1 bug on the 23rd and the staff did their best to reassure us that... More

We arrived late went straight to bed, waking up at 4 o'clock in the morning to bugs crawling on the walls, and blood splats on the bed where I must have squashed bed bugs whilst sleeping. The bites reinforced that there was bed bugs the next day, along with still seeing them crawling the following day. This did ruin the... More

The hostel staff were lovely and the location was close enough to the train station. However there was bed bugs and I ended up absolutely covered in bites, not comfortable in the slightest. The guy on reception was really professional and understanding and gave us a full refund, which was great.

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighborhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighborhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
