When I booked a 'hostel' at just 20euros for a night in a single room with shared bathroom, I was just hoping for a bed and breakfast arrangement. But to my surprise, this Tasso hostel is a luxury hostel if I may put it so. The staff were extremely polite and helpful. You do have to become a member of... More

My sister and I visited Florence in the middle of a weeklong trip, and upon arriving at the hostel we found no one. Couldn't get in. We thought we'd been conned but after 15-ish minutes, a woman came up to me and asked if I was looking for the Florence Youth Hostel. It turns out they were remodeling the at... More

The only positive about this so called "youth hostel" was its location. apart from that everything else sucked. it was sooo expensive, you were kicked out from 10-2 every day, meaning you couldn't sleep in or come home for lunch. the manager was very rude and unhelpful, and the rooms were outdated and dirty. Would not recommend. You will easily... More

First, let me mention the good. The location is good - very close to the duomo and other attractions. They had computers with WORKING internet (not very good, but good enough to book our next hostel). Check out apparently ends at 10PM (during booking we were told 24/7 - but when we emailed right after booking he said 10PM so... More

BAD BAD BAD place to stay. Staff were rude, bathrooms were dirty, rooms were OK but as soon as you walked in the bedroom it felt like you were walking on used needles. They kick you out of your rooms for cleaning from 10.00am to 2.00pm and we checked out and left out luggage there on the morning of our... More

We booked this hostel based on the reviews we had read on TripAdvisor and were sadly mislead. This is not a hostel. This place is actually Hotel Cristina, a one star hotel that is going under at least one other name, Florence Youth Hostel. We had been on a 3 week vacation so far and were looking for an affordable... More

The location is perfect, you can walk everywhere. The manager was quite rude and unfriendly but the other staff was really helpful and informative. There were only two shared bathrooms which was sometimes inconvenient, and the showers were tiny. The rooms themselves were very old fashioned, you have to get lucky with your room. I stayed in a four bed... More

On our Italian tour, we had rented a car and pretty much covered Italy from Sorrento to Venice and back to Naples. We had booked B&Bs in each place we stayed. Sorrento, Rome, Florence and Venice. All were nice, friendly and no negative surprises as we had done a proper research before choosing them. However, there was one I would... More

The best thing about this hostel is the location! It is within walking distance to all of the main attractions in Florence - with many bars, restaurants, and transport also very close. Overall the hostel was clean and comfortable with large rooms. Maybe a little expensive for what it is, but it is right in the heart of a main... More

I had a good experience with this hostel overall, but I was able to stay in a hotel in Venice for the same price. It was clean and it felt more like a home. The staff was helpful, and I got free breakfast each morning even though they usually charge 2.5 euro. The room was clean and cozy and I... More
