Archie's House

General

Archie's House is a small, family-run hostel on the first floor of a 19th century building 10 minutes by foot from S.Lucia train station and a 25 minutes from the city center of Venice.

Property information

Archie's House is located on the Strada Nuova, the main street that connects the train station to Saint Mark Square.
Dorm rooms have a maximum of 5 single beds, no bunk beds, and have small lockers for each person.

The owner Archie's House Hostel started this business thirty years ago: he is always travelling around the world speaking in many languages and is taking his fourth degree as Ph.D., after the ones in Philosophy, indoeuropean Linguistics, and Chinese. You will probably be welcomed by his two sons, Uri and Ari. Like their father they like to speak foreign languages: if you plan to practice your Italian in this place, you are barking up the wrong tree.

The furnishing and services are bare-bones, but it's very cheap, so it's the perfect place if you plan on being around the city most of the time.

Great location, very easy to find. It was my first hostel experience so I was happy with the price but it was not clean. I woke up the next morning with some sort of bites all over my face. I don't know if I got them from the pillow or the mosquitos, either way.. not a pleasant experience.

Very dirty and messy, no hot water plus you have to pay for the towels. The floor in the bathroom is always full of water and it stinks there. Do not recommend it anyone.

It is a rather run down place but a friendly one for sure. Do not let the shabby looks deceive you as the sheets are clean and the floors are swept.

The location is excellent, right in the middle of Cannaregio. It is not far from the train station and decent restaurants that don't seem to be tourist traps can easily be found if you walk a little to the north.

Compared to the rest of Venice the price is rather outstanding.

A little, rusty gem in the heart of Venice. Very relaxed, dusty and quirky place, great value, excellent location and super friendly staff! Highly recommended

I found the location very convenient, near the train station and the city centre. Ari, the manager, was very helpful. I will definitely stay here again, next time I am in Venice.

These were wonderful days in Venice. We liked Archie. Convenient location in the heart of the city!
Archie met us very friendly, showed us places to visit. We see that Archie loves his home, which is very cozy and atmospheric
In the hostel clean
The only negative - no hot shower (at an additional cost).
The rest of us all happy and would recommend this hostel with pleasure

Dear Archie.. Your son is very irresponsible. I think he has no ability for systematic hostel management. I wish i can say thank you but i can't. he does not deserve this.

Dirty&Dusty like hell! The bathroom was so disgusting that we could't bring our selfs to shower there for 2days, and also we tryed to use other toillets than the Hostel one most of the time. (To be fair the only realy clean toillet on the Island was in a museum, so that might be normal there)

I'm just lightly alergic to dustmights, but after only one night in there beds i had an outbreak, that was equal to the one i got from cleaning out my granys attic.

Also there was no effort to get it clean any time soon, cleaning toillet and bathroom means wather everything with a gardenhose and then let it sit dripping wet untill dry. Not sure if they even own a vacumcleaner, every peace of cloth looked grey and was even stifdirty sometimes.

Worst place I ever stayed. A place like this shouldn't be recognized as a hostel and should be closed because there are really serious problems with health care. DON'T GO HERE.

If you are expecting paradise, this is not your choice, but if you just want a bed and a bathroom, spend little money and lodge somewhere close to the center, this is definetly the place you are looking for.

The most dirty hostel I've ever been. The room is dirty and very hot. Restroom is even worst, there was no shower head, no hot water.. we took shower ditectly from the tube just like in jail... on the arrival we were puntual but noone answered .the hostel reception guy kept us wait for 20 minutes on the street. On the check-out he didnt wake up and didnt answer again for 30 minutes and made us loose our train.
