I am not a luxury traveler and have stayed at many dorms. But this one really did not meet my expectations. The shared bathroom and sink areas were not cleaned regularly enough... so it can be a bit gross if you use the bathroom after peak hours. The showers spray outwards instead of downwards making it really difficult to shower.... More

Good location, walking distance to see the town also to the train and bus station. Really big common area - enough place to all guests, but a rather small kitchen for the such amount of people (113). Hostel terrace - haha, don't trust. It's just a little space between the walls. A huge amounts of narrow stairs. Strange colors in... More

We didn't really know what to expect of this hostel due to the fluctuation of reviews on Tripadvisor. However, we honestly have no negative things to say about the hostel. We stayed in a 10 bed mixed dorm and the only problems we had occurred on the last night we were there, and my issue is entirely with the other... More

The location is great, walking distance to everything you want to see in Florence. The staff is nice and try to pleasure you with everything you need. Rooms are not the best with the minimum you need which is pretty normal when you book a room in a hostel...i guess in summer are very worm though. I would recommend it... More

This hostel was located in a nice little area in walking distance to everything. The staff's friendliness made the hostel feel much nicer than it actually was. Although there were not many amenities, the hostel was still running professionally. I would recommend a dorm with +4 beds since those rooms will get more fans---our room had 4 beds, 1 fan... More

I've been there in the summer so I guess that the experience is influenced by the high temperatures that hit Italy in those days. The room was a 22 mixed and I've nothing to complain about the number of people in there.. In fact people respect each other and everyone avoids to make any noise during the sleeping time. The...

This hostel was only 20 euros a night when I stayed, and the location was great. I walked everywhere and never even thought about using public transit. There's tons of restaurants nearby, all the main attractions, and a supermarket just 2 minutes away. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The bad thing was that the Wifi never worked. Every...

While not centrally located, it's not that far from the train station and florence really isn't that big so it's no issue. It means we were able to go to a fairly big grocery store out of the city nearby with cheap prices. We could then subsequently use them for the kitchen that was available to us, which is always...

The hostel is located 13 minutes walking from Florence's duomo. The hostel is big, has enough bathrooms, big "living room" and a nice kitchen. It is clean and the staff is nice... And has a supermarket to which you arrive with a 5 minutes walk. Recommended :)
