A Venice Fish was great. Pasta was served for dinner, FOR FREE as well as breakfast. The people who work there were great, very fun as well as all the other guest. It was a good experience...

Just kidding, you could also be a sober and have a wonderful time at this warm and fun place. This was my first time in a hostel. I did not know what to expect, but from the very moment I walked in I was checked in by Nina, whom I ended loving and appreciating so very much!. Every night after pasta dinner, that was shared with young and not so young people from all over the world, Nina took us out to a near by bar for drinks, after wards we all went dancing in a club near by the VF. Ali and Jess, the other two people that work there, cannot be more fun loving and available people. I am a 64 years old grandmother and this is way up in the most regarding and wonderful experiences of my life. So if you enjoy the company of young beautiful people and want to have a new perspective in life possibilities do not miss The Venice Fish, the people that work there make this a very especial place. This is a fun and warm place to be. Thank you Nina, Ali and `j.

If you are in the least bit sociable, this place is well worth forking out for - and for Venice, the price isn't all that high anyway. I had one of the best weeks of my life here. Cannot recommend it strongly enough. I miss Venice and I miss the hostel staff so much! Can't wait to go back.

This hostel had a great common room which made it easy to meet people. This along with dinner and breakfast included made it an enjoyable stay. The people that run it were cool and made sure we were looked after.

A Venice Fish was absolutely fantastic. The owners took us out every night and to the beach during the day. They even made breakfast lunch and dinner for everyone in the hostel. It was by far the nicest hostel I stayed in in Europe.
