The Room was quite affordable in Venice. The staff was so kind towards me. It was good stay in this room at center of the Venice. I requested for a coffee and the staff was so kind enough and he prepared it for me. The room was clean when i visited.

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a really good time, we really enjoyed the dinners arranged by the hostel, such a great way to meet the other guests! The view out the window is absolutley wonderful and exacly what we had dreamed about before coming (being able to see the water and boats right outside, and getting to...

In my whole euro trip of 3 months, I must admit that this was the worst hostel I've stayed in.... Apart from the good location, there's nothing else, you walk in a dodgy basement, and when you walk up the stairs it's not better at all ! There's only a key for the front doors cause the dorm rooms don't...

The hostel location is ideal being on venice main island and approx 15 mins by foot from main lucia station. Nice and friendly staff. No air con and only 1 fan for 10 bed dorm - very hot at night. The place is a little dingy in my opinion, shower room was very unkempt and looked like it had not...

First of all, the place is the most filthy thing I've ever seen in my whole life. The beds are infested with bedbugs, the bathrooms are disgusting and when we returned in the night, a male employee was screaming at us, saying that we did not pay. He demanded that we pay him 135 euros or he would "call the...

Do not stay here. Unless you want an adventure with drunk owners, bed bugs and cold showers, stay away from A Venice Fish. Bed bugs should be a good enough reason not to stay here, but there are many more. The owner didn't understand when we asked for sheets for the beds and had loud music playing whilst we were...

Was booked to stay for 5 nights. After my first night, the two hostel workers (who people have reviewed to be really great) quit and left because management was so awful. I found out how when I discovered bed bug bites on my legs and then later I found a bug in my bed. I told management who promised me...

Rude, ignorant, money seeking staff. Fans had no safety cap. No cleaners employed in entire hostel. Bed bugs prevalent. We left with our bodies covered in bites and have since had to wash all our clothing items at a high temperature. Bathrooms are disgusting and there are only two for the entire hostel. Tissue paper rarely replaced. The shower door...

This is literally the least favorite hostel that i've ever stayed at. They clearly have bed bugs, and I and my other 2 friends were covered with bites after staying for 2 days (we also had lots of mosquito bites, but it is easy to tell the difference). In addition to that the whole place is dirty. The bathrooms are...

The hostel was a great surprise to start my trip. The location is excelent, just in the midle between the S.Lucia train station and the S.Marco square. The hostel itself had all the comodities a traveler can ask for. So I would like to highlight the staff that works there are awsome, very knowlageble, friendly, joined in on the hostle...

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
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 neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
