We stayed in May 2015. There was no hot, not even warm water in the showers. The owner was giving numerous promisses that it would be fixed in the evening, next morning, etc. but at the end both of the two available showers in the hostel had ice-cold water. Besides that the showers were very dirty, the water was coming back from the tube in one of sinks due to the blockage in the pipe and the beds were really bad. I would say never ever stay in this hostel.

Staying in this hostel was a terrible experience. The place is dirty, uncomfortable beds and the worst part, it was infected with bed bugs. I have stayed just for one night and got many bites from bed bugs. It is really annoying because you itch all the time and the appearance is awful. I don't recommend at all. You can stay in a better ace for a similar price.

This place was pretty much exactly what I thought a hostel would be like. Cool staff and people staying there. It wasn't too far from Santa Lucia and it was easy to get to other places in the city. The bathroom floors did get gross and wet in the mornings after a few rounds of showers, maybe some bathmats? Also, ladders on the bunks would be nice, it's a bit awkward climbing up and down, especially when your bunk mate is already asleep.

A bit ruff around the edges in terms of cleanliness, but this was made up for in the atmosphere of the place!! Amazing staff working here hold a pasta and whine dinner every night and after, drinking games such as beer pong. They also took us out to a really cool bar/sqautt which tourist wouldn't beable to find alone :) with live music and a real feel for Venice night life for younger people!! Thanks Venice fish !!!!!!

Such an amazing experience. Would recommend for people who like to go out. If you want quiet and calm I wouldn't go here. However the people are great and it's very homey

Venice is expensive and this hostel is good value for money being right in the heart of Venice. Everything is in walking distance. The guys running the hostel are nice and happy to help you out BUT the downfall is the hostel itself, rickety beds that are difficult to get in and out of and really dirty bathrooms and nowhere to lockup your stuff unless you want to pay and put it in the storage closet. The place is safe'ish but still found it hard to sleep. It's OK.

So there was only one working toilet. The dorm didn't have a lock. It was awful, not secure at all. There isn't a ladder for the bunk beds (I had to use a chair). The shower was sub par.

Not very clean, the 6 bed dorm we stayed in was very small and cramped with terrible beds and had to walk trough another dorm to get to our dorm. 2 showers in the place, that are not very nice or clean for all the people.. Also there is a lock out from 11-2 which is highly inconvenient and does not occur at most hostels.

Had the most amazing stay at a Venice Fish. As a new traveler the staff were super friendly, helpful and just a good time in general. Nick was awesome, and was great for sharing stories, tips, and showing you around Venice nightlife. If you are a young traveler visiting Venice this is definitely the place for you! I can't say enough good things.

This hostel was so much fun! The only Things I didn't like is: it was very hard to find at first, and the hot water was non existent. Other than that the staff was great (nick was awesome!) and there were dinners every night. It was very social!

This place is perfect for young travellers. One of the guys, Nick, who runs the place, is one of the greatest people I've ever met. He offers a tour of the surrounding bars and is filled with endless stories. The hostel itself has a very chill, positive atmosphere about it. The kind that makes you feel like you're in a home away from home with a family of friendly strangers. The location is great, being only a 15 minute walk from both the train station and the Rialto bridge

Friendly staff and dinner made on site every night for a low fee. The only security between you and other travelers is the outside door. 12 bed dorm without any additional lockers for storage. One shower for everyone staying in the hostel

This Hostel was pretty awesome! But I will warn that it's probably a better place for younger travelers on a budget. The place is pretty old but adds to the history and character of the building. There are only two bathrooms which kind of sucks. Nick the manager is an cool guy makes family pasta dinners every night which is a must do if you're staying there, met lots of other travelers during those dinners. One of the friendliest hostels I've stayed at!!
