Awesome little hostel. Great for sociable types as many evenings can turn into group outings to local bars/restaurants. Nick and his assistant (Tiffany), who ran the place while I was there, were great hosts to everyone staying at the hostel and know tonnes about venice and where to find whatever you might be looking for. For those who are less sociable: still a good call based on their rates.

Be aware of this Hostel: they have bed-bugs! Terrible experience. It is managed by hippies, who realy don't care about hygiene.

Good community feeling! However, there was definitely a case of bedbugs during my stay.

Staff was extremely helpful and fun. Pasta dinner every night for 5euro plus a staff led games and tour of town bars really helps you get to know people. Facilities very shabby and a few cases of bed bugs were reported (luckily I did not get any)

Definitely it is not a good hostel... the staff was very very friendly and the atmosphere with the other visitors was great just because of this I will come back there.

I was very disappointed with this place. It was in a good location but the interior was severely lacking. They have about 30 beds and ONLY TWO BATHROOMS!!! Half the lights didn't work and I was stuffed away in a room, where I have to walk through other rooms to get to. It was a good 'party' atmosphere.. But it lacked the comfort and cleanliness of everywhere else I have stayed. I was disappointed.

I enjoyed how open the hostel was with how nice the staff and fellow travelers were! The only thing I didn't care for was the last night I was bitten by bed bugs pretty badly, but that was on the 3rd day there. Other than that, they have a good cheap dinner, go out for drinks, and its a chill place to stay! The only thing some people would mind is that there are only two toilets/showers facilities for the whole hostel, but I didn't mind.

By far one of the most sociable hostels I have stayed in. The staff made me feel welcome, offered an excellent pasta evening meal (and wine) for €5,50 and took the guests out for a drink every evening. Always offered helpful advice and useful information e.g. Places to visit, eat and drink. I would definitely stay at this hostel if I visit Venice again - I had a lot of fun!

Bed bugs. That's all. I ended up at a clinic my bites were so bad, and the staff have me a refund but did nothing to fix the problem, there is still a terrible infestation.

Downside: No breakfast, no kitchen, unlocked door. Perks: free wifi. location was good, five euro pasta dinner rocked, great dinner table for people to chat at while they eat, free to use washer but no dryer. Though the staff was really accommodating and cooperative about it, I have to mention that this hostel had a serious bed bug infestation when I was there. They did refund me fully even for the nights I stayed, and it isn't their fault, but it was a problem that needs to be taken care of.

Not enough showers for a hostel of its size. But is otherwise a good, if overpriced, hostel.

This was a lovely hostel, in an amazing old palace! In a lovely district in Venice and near food shops and nice bars! The hostel atmosphere was incredible due to the small size of the hostel and the great social area which allowed you to meet people from all around the world. We especially liked the €5 dinner deal, with unlimited pasta and wine basically, which was expertly made! We will be recommending A Venice Fish to all our friends and family who take future trips to Venice :)

I've had a great time in A Venice Fish. It's not the cleanest or most comfortable place - BUT it has atmosphere to make up for it.
