This hostel has a good atmosphere, good communal areas, and lovely clean and comfy rooms. From our experience the staff were friendly as were the customers - seems to attract a good crowd. Its relatively close to the centre of town - good location maybe a ten min walk from the station and not much further to the centre of... More

This hostel was a great place to stay in Florence! It was close to the station which is good for backpackers! It didn't take that long to walk to the main sights either! The 8 bed dorm my partner and I stayed in was nice, clean and the beds were extremely comfortable! There was also plenty of space which was... More

Except the disgusting smell in the room and bathroom, the Hostel wasn't so bad... Until we realized there were bed bugs in The room. We realized it the third day and when we told it to the staff they already knew. After a night to do Washing machines, we spoke with the boss who didnt want to refund us... He... More

The positives: It felt safe, there are lockers in each room. About a ten minute walk from the train station, roughly 20-30 minute walk to most of the Centro Historico attractions. One fan in each room (the kind on a desk that rotates). The negatives: The main receptionist man at the time of my stay had zero people skills. He... More

Very nice place for meeting people. I've been there for 5 days and it's worth it. The best location. Cleaning is ok. And I made friends with the staff, all very nice people. They gave me many hints of places to go and a map

I had to stay in the hostel because of the train strike and looked for the cheapest place to sleep not far from the station. If you are in the same situation, the place is ok: it's cheap and not so awful. I stayed in the female room with 4 beds and we had our bathroom. Everything in the hostel... More

The hostel is OK. I made a reservation for a "4 bed with shared bathroom" but they didn't mention that the bathroom will be shared with 5 more rooms of 4-5 beds each. So, make your calculations! Another thing that didn't mention is that if you are booking the cheapest rooms you will stay in a different building across the... More

Room was clean, a little small. Close to the road, read loud. There was no place to hangout as a group or meet new people. No kitchen that I could find. But very close to train station and main sights. If you just need a place to sleep, this place will do just fine.

The hostel looked really vacation-suiting from the outside, has a nice front yard and swinging seats. The wifi was only available in the common room though... The room itself was alright, clean bedsheet, which was the most important to me. There were just two staff, both men, one was alright but he didn't seem too eager to help tourists, however... More

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
