Service and location were excellent. The room was very good for three people, but we were right next to the street, which was a bit noisy, but not too bad considering. Friendly staff, helpful and good tips to visit Florence. We didn't like the unnecessary noise by other hotel patrons late at night and their disregard for others. Because the... More

The location is perfect and that was one of the reasons why I booked this hostel. Reviews were also very good. We could check in earlier as our room was ready and we found the staff nice. Average, doing their job, but nice. You can't pay by card, we didn't know this before checking in. Even though the room was... More

Wonderful staff who helped to accomodate all your needs. Big rooms with full size lockers to fit all belongings. Excellent location, all attractions are within walking distance. Wifi is excellent, great connection. Very clean and tidy at all times! One of the best hostels I have stayed at in Europe! Highly recommend.

The hotel was a mess. Stayed in 4-bed dormitory with no decoration at all. A ceiling fan that doesnt work. Swarm of mosquitoes will wake you up at night. Don't be surprised if youll wake up with patches of rashes. Secondly, the sheets and the smells terribly bad. I have been to different countries and cities in Italy, stayed in... More

The Albergo Paola is a wonderful hostel, and definitely one of the better ones that I and my friend stayed in during our trip to Italy. There are no single or double rooms, but the mixed dorm room we stayed in was lovely, clean and cozy. Internet access is provided for free, although there isn't much space to sit down... More
