I've been to a lot of hostels in a lot of countries. I've discovered that I much prefer small hostels with a good vibe over big generic hostels. A Venice Fish is like no other, so much so that I returned 3 times in one month while interrailing. If you want to meet people you'll be friends with for life... More

Really a dream to find this place in Venice. My friend and I really didn't want one of those soulless hostels or a hotel but it looked like we would have to settle for one in Venice. As it got late we found a hostel with a beautiful balcony on the canal. As soon as we went in people were... More

Well located hostel for those who are traveling by train. The structure is not the best, a few bathrooms and the furniture is old (mainly the beds). For those who are traveling alone it is good choice because the staff is young and is always excited to hang out at night. Good for those with a low budget.

A Venice Fish is located centrally in Venice-it's only a short walk to the train station and you can walk everywhere else easily. The hosts are awesome-they go out of their way to make sure you're satisfied and provide for an awesome local experience by taking you out to some nice bars at night and giving suggestions for the daytime....

While, as other reviewers have noted, this is not the fanciest of places, it is absolutely one of the friendliest. The staff make everyone feel very welcomed and it really feels like you are a part of one big family. Every night they cook up a giant pot of pasta and buy wine, and everyone sits along a long table... More

We stayed here for a few nights over Carnival since most other budget options were already booked. The staff is friendly and the location is great but that's about it! Honestly, I've stayed in many types of hostels and don't mind if things are basic or it's somewhat messy but the Venice Fish was one of my worst experiences yet!... More

I stayed at the Venice Fish last April for two nights and it was a quick 7-ish minute walk from the train station in a beautiful square. People stopped to take photos of the outside of our historic-looking building and I loved the canal around the hostel. Basic amenities and bunks but everything was clean and we had our own... More

We booked this hostel since the one we were staying in didn't have space for us on our last night in Venice. I'm glad we were only here for a night. The experience was weird to say the least. The staff were actually really accommodating and made sure the six of us were all put into one room together, and... More

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

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.
