This hostel was very strange. That looks like hippie's cabin. All rooms are opened, very dirty, one couple had sex at night. Here was no breakfast. but they'll give you good pasta. All Staffs are very kind, and outgoing people. In there, you can have good night with them. If you are extreme outgoing people, or party guy and girl, I recommend you this hostel. There are very nice place. but if you want to enjoy your own times, there will be like a hell.

The staff were super helpful but the hostel, was quite dirty, my partner had about 12 bed bug bites on one hand after one night and the showers were in the same room as the toilets- and there were only two for the whole hostel to share. The hostel had a good vibe, great location and awesome staff but there were no lockers, the front door was barely locked and we saw a rat. If you have allergies avoid this hostel as theres mould in the bathrooms and I would assume more elsewhere.

BEST HOSTEL. Walking distance to everything. The workers really facilitate a social environment and take you out to their favorite bars. Dinner is phenomenal and everyone who stays there was super down to earth. We all went out together and became a family. They rallied together to get my drunk ass home safe and hey it worked. Forever grateful for this hostel!

Location of the hostel is excellent and support staff quite friendly. The issues are: 1. There is practically no security in the hostel, there are locks in the door but they remain open 24X7. 2. There is too much late night partying in the main eating area which is disturbing. 3. We had booked in 8 room dormitory for 3 nights, but on the 2nd night 2 more beds were inserted into the room which is not as per agreement. Logically we should be refunded money for the 2nd night atleast partially.

We had a great time here as it was very social and everyone got on really well, very welcoming, fun atmosphere. However a few of our group were bitten by bed bugs and there weren't enough bathrooms for the number of people there which is unfortunate as it was a very fun place to stay.

Awesome hostel! The atmosphere is so social and enjoyable due to the staff and social pasta dinners. Also, one of the staff members will take guests to great nightlife spots.

Very communal and friendly. The meal they offer is a great chance to meet fellow backpackers and proved to be well worth it. The location is also extremely good. However seemed slightly unorganised and unsafe at times. Overall though it was an enjoyable stay.

A Venice Fish is a hostel with great rooms, great views and great staff! There's such a relaxed atmosphere in the hostel and it's so easy to mingle with the other people staying there which all adds to a great stay.

We had an unforgettable stay! Freakin awesome staff and a great atmosphere. The guys who run the place are always available if you have a question and they cook bomb pasta every night served family style. Wish we could have stayed longer and we will definitely be back! Thanks again guys!!

The hostel was located about 12 mins away from the St Lucas railway station by walk. The staff was really friendly and I was warmly welcomed by one of the staff (Nick) when I got there. The bedrooms were huge although they did not seem to have individual doors. They offered free lockers if you have your own pad locks which was a plus. I would definitely stay there again.

Fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff and felt at home right away. Although this is not the cleanest and fanciest hostel out there, there is an unbeatable fun, relaxed and chilled atmosphere. We really enjoyed our time here and would definitely consider staying again :)

It is a cheap hostel, if you are on a budget it's ok. But it has no facilities at all. It's a big house, not clean at all, no lockers or any kind of security ( though nothing at all happened to us ), and the staff are ok, but no more than that. On the other hand, full of young people, good atmosphere for getting to know people, and not expensive.

No hot water, two bathrooms for 40+ guests. I'm convinced my pillow case was not washed. 5 euro pasta for dinner was pretty good. Great social atmosphere. Staff was a little too laid back and not personable enough. Average hostel at best.
