My traveling partner and myself were two college aged girls and checked in to Emerald Fields and were offered an upgrade because of a cancellation to an apartment next door to the main hostel, described as "nicer, with a TV, terrace". Little did we know this was a bedroom in the hostel owner's apartment. Needless to say, this made us... More

This small hostel is in a busy area, pretty centrally situated. The double rooms are large, with simple furnishing, facing the calm backyard, no TV, not super clean, not super comfy, but o.k.. Bathrooms are new, though no toilett paper. I got the impression that it is more of a "party" hostel as there was quite some noise at night... More

Really liked the location of the hostel, so close to everything! Had a wonderful stay here thanks to meeting a number of people the day I got there! Comfortable beds, good sized lockers, Very impressed for the price. Would return!

After being in Italy for quite some time you start to take some Italian mannerisms with a pinch of salt. A great example is the service at emerald fields. We were travelling as a group of three and one of us had arrived early. The desk refused to check him in because he needed all 3 passports and seemed very... More

This is a decent hostel in a fairly good location - not far from the historic city centre of Florence and quite close to the train station. It is also quite close to a lot of restaurants, on the other end of Via Guelfa. It was clean, the rooms were comfortable and the staff were nice and helpful. Breakfast is... More

First of all, my overall stay was acceptable. Their personal website however gives a false impression of how nice the place is and what is included. For example: The website states "Each room is provided with a private LCD TV." This is completely false. There is only one outlet in each room so I don't know where they would even... More

This has been one of the worst hostels I have ever been to. The front desk person is extremely rude and would not help with directions to sights. The hostel also kicks guest out from 11am to 2pm everyday for what they call "cleaning". I was fine with them cleaning but when I came back nothing was cleaned in the... More

I really don't know how to qualify this place. I guess I would choose the word ghetto? Just look at how they present themselves on their letterbox. Not mention the fact that when I woke up at three in the morning to pee and saw that the sink had been filled halfway up with puke in one bathroom and the... More

This hostel is in a very good location it's close to everything! The rooms don't have locks on them so keep your stuff locked up, also don't stay in the front room if possible it is very nosy and the rooms are so hot it's a joke like impossible to even sleep
