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.

This was the worst experience I had on my trip. The staff was non-existent. I didn't get my key deposit back. The bathrooms were dirty, no toilet paper and there was no way I was using the shower, if it was even working. The beds were scary and the WORST part was that i woke up COVERED in bug bites....

We met more awesome people in just two nights than we have anywhere else so far! The staff were really friendly and created an awesome environment. After the communal pasta dinner (super cheap and a great way to start talking to other people at the hostel) the lounge area was full both nights until around 10:30 (unofficial curfew) when the...

The place has never been cleaned and you are guaranteed to get bed bugs. "Slept" 2 nights there and now have over 24 bites. The people there are friendly but could care less about the conditions of you or the place. Do yourself a favor and spend your money elsewhere.

Stayed 2 nights and luckily no more. Place was filthy. Room had 3 bunks squeezed in with no room to move when it's full. Sure it had bed bugs, got bites all over after this place. Duvets don't even have covers. Staff were friendly enough but overall terrible hostel. Stay elsewhere.

Definitely a party hostel, would NOT recommend for families. One shared fridge for the hostel. Employees always take naps on the couch in main lobby which can be awkward. Reasonably priced for the location, close to everything. The people who work here make sure everyone has a good time and will show you the non-touristy nightlife of Venice!

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

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.
