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

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
