My friend and i only stayed for one night, but we had the nicest experience there. The staff were just lovely and the place was really clean and nice decor. It is daunting going up the stairs as the building looks quite shabby, but as soon as u enter the hostel it's lovely. Perfect location close to the train station... More

My new wife and I stayed at the Emerald Palace in Florence as part of our extended honeymoon trip through Italy. Having never been to Florence we booked this accommodation based on the reviews on trip advisor and its proximity to all the sights, and all I can say is that I am really glad we did. I was sceptical... More

Had a mix up of the locations at first (don't trust googlemaps, type in the actual address given) but when the hostel was found, it was excellent. The location is right above the leather market (San Lorenzo) which is wonderful and dangerous for your bank account. They are there all day and night as well which makes it feel much... More

At first we had a reservation in the emerald hostel and when we got there we were informed that they did not have any rooms left. They ended up putting us in emerald palace to accomodate us which was awesome! We saw no staff the whole one we were there so the service was not great...but the room we had... More

It took as awhile to figure out what hostel we were in once we did, I'm not going to lie, I told my husband I'm not staying there. The building was very sketchy... The market used it for storage maybe and was really old and dirty.. However once we were able to get into the hostel my mind was changed!!... More

When we arrived by taxi from the train station we learned that actually we weren't at that location, we were going to stay in the overflow "Emerald Fields" location of this hostel. We didn't mind too much because it was closer to the city center, and the woman walked us there, and apologized (apparently she'd sent an email a day... More

Would recommend this place for any backpacker. Yes it was small but small made the service much more personal. Staff were friendly. Location was a walk to all the attractions but quite close to the museam with the real David in it and within walkin distance of the train station. Best hostel I have stayed in.
