Fun people, and a typical hostel setup with bunk rooms and a big common area. But there was no common sink area, and the two bathrooms were pretty gross. Overall, it's about as cheap as you can finding venice, but I wouldn't pay half this much for this place elsewhere.
Location is not too bad,but the house is too old,and the room is too old.people in lobby are noisy until 11:00pm or 12:00 pm,it is too noisy to sleep.
Good atmosphere, clean enough... we were there just to spend the night, but would probably stay there again
Poor security could be solved by lockers. Kitchen missing, it is not possible to clean apple at the morning, when both bathrooms are in use. How to cut bread and serve it just with plastic forks and plates? Btw, it is not environment friendly to waste with plastic plates.

Great place to stay in Venice. Arrived on Saturday night and went straight on a pub crawl with the people staying at the hostel which was great. People are probably awake until 12 when the noise drops so you might not get a great sleep if you're sleeping early but that was fine for me. It's a small hostel so it feels like you get to know everyone with a community feel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms are busy in the morning so be weary of that. No locks on room doors too.
I had a lot of fun in this place, the pub crawls are free and excellent and the location is prime. Its a small hostel though, with only two full bathrooms for twenty people so long lines in the morning. The lockout 10 am -2pm was also anoying. I didn't have any problems but there are no lockers or even locks on the dorm door, just one on the front door. Otherwise the management was great and the people I meet there too.
Excellent Staff! Perfect for young people! lots of fun!
The staff is so nice and it is very clean, there are only two bathroom, sometimes need to queue but we haven't wait for too long, the location is good, not so far to the 'bus' tation and can walk to the train station. Higly recommend.
Very basic hostel but clean and in a great location. Chris and Luis are very sweet.

you come in to check in but they don't even have a front desk, they use their computer and a tiny desk in the middle of the living room to work. the bedrooms don't lock and there are no lockers. the place in general is not very clean and they start playing loud music at 9am until 12pm. for 2 nights it worked for us but i wouldn't recommend staying longer.
It's definitely like crashing at your college buddy's place for the weekend after you've both graduated. There's a really chill atmosphere, and good people all around. Great location, and the staff is really nice and helpful. Fun place to stay and hang out for a couple days.
A stunning building in the Cannaregio with canal views. Much wonderful lounge. No kitchen facilities. Croissant for breakfast. Two toilets for all. In the evening there listening to rap and watch movies about zombies.
The hostel is for the grungier kind of traveler. The location was simple enough to find, but reminded me more of a unemployed friend's bachelor pad than a hostel. The mixed dorm I stayed in was bare bones; the comforter lacked a cover and had someone else's hair stuck to it. Granted I only stayed for one night on a Saturday, my room was adjacent to the common space where they blasted rock music until midnight. If you want to drink, this is the place for you. If not, I suggest elsewhere.

It has a very casual way about it and is very much a youth hostel. The 3 male staff that I met were all genuinely friendly. The rooms are all connected to the common room which made it very sociable, though I can imagine this might mean some nights can be fairly noisy. There is only 2 bathrooms so in the morning there was a queue to use them. Could also do with some bath mats on the floor as the floors got pretty wet.
further away from the main areas than I thought. Just be ready for lots of walking. Hostel is not clean at times, and uncomfortable.
Good location with friendly staff. Dorms are pretty basic and 2 bathrooms are shared between the multiple rooms. For what you get it is expensive but that is true for everything in Venice. I would reccomend a friend stay here. It would be nice if lockers were available
My stay at Venice Fish was wonderful! I was only supposed to stay there one night, but as it was the best hostel i was having so far after 5 weeks of traveling, I decided to underterminately extend my stay here! The staff was great! The social life between the guests is also great! You could not book a better hostel for a stay in Venise!
Our stay at A Venice Fish was certainly the best hostel experience we have ever had. The staff was very laid back and relaxed, not to mention hilarious. The manager, Chris, is knowlegeable and really cares about making sure you have a good time. We hung out with him, played kings, and he showed us the local bars. If you're looking to have a good time once the sites of Venice close down in the evening, A Venice Fish is a great place to start!
