A bit of a walk from the city center, but doable. Location itself not very pleasant, no bars/cafes and a very trafficked road. Would not walk home alone at night. Room was fine apart from a little dirty floors. Bathrooms were also not exactly spotless (which might be expected from shared facilities, but still), and in one of the bathrooms... More

Located on a very busy main road so traffic noise was a bit of a problem. Reception were unfriendly and unhelpful. No problem with room itself (very nice), 2 communal showers on floor, but door to one bathroom broken so couldn’t lock. Self catering facilities provided, but we didn’t make use of these. Quite far from the centre of town... More

Decent hostel situated on the main rain on the side end of the Firenze Railway station. Please be careful while walking towards Railway station, you might have to cross roads many times. The Hostel reception is open until 10 PM. I checked in late night and the staffs were helpful. Initially i was allotted in a double bed room in... More

The hostel was clean and pretty convenient, was very close to the station. The rooms are nice and they have a pretty functional kitchen for each floor. Only issue was that the person at the counter wasn't overtly enthusiastic and was a little grumpy. Else, had a comfortable stay that was a bus/walk away from the attractions in Florence.

Great hostel that offers walking distance the best parts of Florence (according to me). Really friendly staff, they helped me a lot when my bag got stolen at the streets. This hostel is more like an hotel to be honest and that could be good or bad in some cases, it depends on what you're after. Comfortable beds but the... More

I enjoyed my stay at Ciao Hostel. The rooms are spacious and the single storey beds are a nice touch. Could do with additional bathrooms. I had a long and frustrating wait on a couple of occasions. Excellent wifi. Well equipped kitchen but small communal area with no power sockets. Each floor is isolated and self contained so opportunities to... More

My daughter and I spent 8 nights in this hostel in Florence making it a base for our daily trips around Tuscany. The hostel looked actually like a mini-hotel. There were no bunk beds - I liked that very much. "Traditional" beds make life easier and there was more space in rooms for their inhabitants. There was also a TV... More

Great value and location for doing day trips. Florence is relatively small so it is not to far to walk into the old town. Very clean rooms, and great kitchen facilities. Closest supermart is at the main train station. We stayed in a twin private and found a very clean modern comfortable room. Highly recommend.

We stayed two nights in Florence. The hostel is very well situated 5 minutes walking form the historic centre. Very clean and comfortable rooms and friendly receptionist. Highly recommended! As you need to do in every hostel...never forget to right your name in the things youstore in the fridge.. ;)

Stayed here for a couple of days on our way to Rome from Switzerland. This did not feel like a hostel (had a hotel feel to it), was very clean and extremely affordable. The location was perfect with just a few min walk to the train station. -- The receptionist was very helpful with the places to visit, mode of... More
