Property information

No guests will be accepted after 8:30 PM!

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

The owner, Archie, started this business thirty years ago: he still travels 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.
Guests are 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.


A little lounge room is at guests' disposal with a free WiFi connection, other services are on request, with a little supplement, such as:

* Cold showers free / hot showers free
* One sheet free / second sheet 1 euro
* Left luggage after check out: 2 euro
* Towels... Read all

We had problems to get inside the first time and spended 20 minutes with waiting. After several door knocks and bell rings we came inside and checked in.
Room and bed was okay.

Archie is a nice person. Is a good hostel if you are looking for something not to expensive, but if you are looking for some privacy this is not the place.

I'll be honest, when I saw the door, i was put off...i thought it woukd be a horrible stay, but I was pleasantly surprised. Archie's house might be outdated and old, but the family running it are really nice and polite. Only bad thing is there is ni air con, and it gets quite hot. Other than that, it's a conveniently placed hostel, perfect for what I needed (a place to sleep at night), close to the train station and also very close to the centre

Well located and quite cheap hostel, but the standard is very low... I think the owner should do some renovation and keep an eye on the way the rooms are cleaned (we had spider's webs at the ceiling).

Archie's Hostel is the most charming and magic place I've ever been to. It is a very special place to stay. We felt at home right from the start. The location and price are amazing especially for Venice (obviously) When we arrived Archie's son Ari was already waitng for us, checked us in and showed us around

The place is a great value for its central position, price and friendliness of staff. It has the charm of things unkept, for us who have messy homes, provides an island of down-to-eart-ness in an otherwise overblown by its historical grandeur city.

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.

There is no hot water at night. The Bathrooms are very ugly but does the job at the end.

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.
