OK, let face facts - there's not that much choice when it comes to cheap accommodation in Florence, and despite some of the recent negative reviews on here, my time there was fine. The bed was comfortable, the dorm had an en-suite bathroom (which can suck if you share with 3 girls). I felt very safe there, and the 'staff'... More

Not really a great place. It's just a regular backpackers... I booked this hostel 2 days before I arrived there because it was the cheapest one... The internet was awful! I needed to get to the 'lobby' to get signal. Although it was kind of near to the S.Maria Novella station... I'm not sure I will come back...

Where to start. So many things were terrible about this place I do not know where to begin!!! Lets start with our arrival. My friend and I who are currently traveling around Italy booked to stay two nights at this hostel. On arrival all seemed fine until we entered our room and discovered our bathroom was leaking and slightly flooded.... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. W were almost frozen to death! It was cold winter time when I stayed here. The host stopped heating (when it was around -20 degree celsius). The host stopped the heating to save electricity. I had to check out around 2 AM without getting any money back. The host kicked us out and we had to... More

This hostel is close to Florence's main train station, but far from interest points in town. My friends and I had a bedroom to ourselves in the building across the street and it was very good - clean, spacious and with good beds. The bathroom was not shared but not ensuite either. The worst thing there is the costumer service,... More

Although the ratings were bad, but I felt that I should give it a try. Everything turned out ok, the staff were friendly. The bed and toilet were acceptably clean, most of my hostel dorm mates were very friendly too. We hanged out together as well. However, there is no activities going on in the hostel to encourage more social... More

I stayed in the residential rooms, property of the hostel, building across the street. Convenient location - 10 minutes walk from central train station, large clean rooms, English speaking staff (not helpful tough), credit cards accepted with additional commission, towels are for rent, beds are very good (one king size and one single). Free WiFi. Shared bathrooms are dirty. No... More

We booked a double room online through hostels.de. When we arrived they said they sent us an email (only 1 hour before we showed up) saying there is a problem and they could not give us a room for that price, they claimed the problem was with the website and not themselves, although we had a confirmation email with us....

Nice on arrival with a lovely outdoor area. Beer from vending machine only €1 too. pretty friendly host. We stayed across the road (still part of the hostel) in a pretty clean with clean sheets on the bed. Great sized bathroom too. Kitchen on the other hand was pretty bad. No forks, only 2 plates to eat from. No matches... More
