I suppose if I had read some of the reviews below I might have been put off but I am glad I didn't because this hotel was just great for our needs, centrally located and not expensive. It is around the corner from the San Lorenzo Market and steps away from everything you would want to see in Florence. Cristina... More

We entered the room and were overwhelmed by the smell of a sewer. The room appeared cleaned,so we assumed the smell was coming from the bathroom pipes. We asked to have are room switched but they were full so we had to stay in this room for one night. I was concerned for my health. The next room was adequate.... More

I spent here 9 nights attending a scientific conference. This is a lovely place with quite good price/value combination. Great location - close to the train station and to the main tourist attractions, while being far enough from all the belltowers :) Rooms (and especially their bathrooms) are rather small, but it's the same at any place in the center...

I am on my third and final night in this hostel and have thoroughly enjoyed my stay here! The room was very spacious and clean and bathroom and shower were great. Very good location; easy walking distance to the city centre. Breakfast was awesome and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Definitely value for money, highly recommend this hotel!

I stayed here with my friend in September and we had a great stay. Our room was nice and big with two single beds. We had TV and air conditioning and were very happy with the bathroom. The hotel was very clean and the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The wifi connection was great. The location was close enough... More

They booked me a single room (with sink inside, wifi access, AC, phone & tv) for ?45/night plus 3? city tax. Comfy common area, breakfast is included and served 8 til after 10.... More

I cannot believe I'm still here. We checked in this afternoon and I immediately should have pulled the rip cord based on appearance alone. We have just come from cinque terre where we paid the same amount and stayed in beautiful pensione's with the equivalent of 20e breakfasts', for free. Regardless, we wanted to come to Florence for two nights.... More
