The location is excellent, near the train station and in a nice area When we arrived our room was not ready although we were not early and we were asked to wait in a common room after a long trip The rooms are shared and yet there is only a very small lockable cupboard shared by everyone in the room...

The location isn't clear marked, and once found, there's a sign that says to call a phone number or go across the street to another hotel to check-in. Upon check-in the staff was extremely rude from the get go and making snide remarks with his co-worker. The room although clean, it was facing the main street, therefore it was extremely... More

We booked the locanda Rocco hostel but when we arrived they gave us a room in pension ottoviagni in another street. There was no kitchen (the website of locanda Rocco said there was) and the showen was cold. The breakfast includes only toast and orange lemonade because the chef was on holiday. I'm never going back to there.

We stayed here for 5 nights and was nicest hostel we been at for a while! It feels more like apartments not a hostel. Small sized rooms with nice decor, good security. Cleanliness ok. We had no issues and for only 12 euro a night in the centre of Florence, you cannot go wrong!

Beware all the pictures you see from their website, they are a completely a lie. It is not as nice as it seems. We booked for 2 nights and they over charged us - talked with other travelers that also stayed at Locanda Rocco and the average rate is 10 Euros per night plus 2 Euros tax. You should not... More

Although the location was excellent and we received clean bedding, the bathrooms in Locanda Rocco were always dirty and there was never enough toilet roll. The hostel manger's English was poor, so he reverted to shouting at the guests in Italian. Our booking was also messed up as the manager argued that we had only booked 2 nights, when in... More

Our stay at locando rocco (also affiliated with hotel ottaviani and hotel Toscana on the same street) was extremely horrendous. When we first arrived, it appeared that there had been an error in our booking and we were only booked to stay one night instead of two. We were told that because of this, we might need to move to...

After finding it the hostel was good, the number system is hard to work out and the sign is small, the hostel is quirky, the common area and kitchen are small and you cant cook. Everything was clean and functional. The owner only speaks Italian so you need to be able to speak some Italian. The location is good easy... More

This hostel was the worst I have ever seen. Our first and only night, when we arrived to our room there was someone sleeping in our bed. There also was a condom on the floor. The manager was totally rude and did not apologize for the inconveniences he only gave excuses. I would definitely not stay in this place. i... More

Pros: Great price. I found a room for 8€ during the holidays. Washing machine. Although no dryer, but there's a washateria next door. Location. Couldn't be more perfectly located. But watch the numbers on the street. They're all mixed up. Towel & Soap provided. Clean. Cons: Small. Not much of a common room. Language. Attendant doesn't speak English. Access. Attendant... More
