Nadia was great. Felt like staying at a family member's home. It is a hostel, so you will interact with other people, and probably have unknown roommates, so each experience is different. But overall, would recommend.

Poor, boring, pretty cheap furnitures and services. Position is good - but Florence is a small town, so all the properties are in good positions. Mental key deposit sharing whatever system. Had to claim for a receit.

Great hostel until realized there was a bed bug infestation and now have to worry about laundry and carrying them to our next hostel and was not dealt with very professionally. Not worth the stay at all look for a different hostel.

I felt home while my stay beacuse it was safe,... More

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Stayed in a four person dorm for one night. Rooms and bathroom facilities are very clean, wifi works well, and atmosphere is excellent. Location is great and only 2 minutes to either the Duomo or Accademia Gallery. Nadia, the owner, brought us to dinner at ZaZa which I also highly recommend. The... More

I stayed here and got eaten alive by bed bugs. This place is not worth risking your vacation over. I lost a whole day fighting with the disrespectful owner to get my money back for the night we left early due to the infestation and spent 20 euro doing a whole suitcase full of laundry.

I had a hard time staying hee because though the owner is very sweet and means well, she fusse over me too much and didn't give me much privacy in my room. I came back to the hostel to nap and the owner spoke loudly (like practically screaming) and even came into my room and closed the window I'd opened... More

Nadia is very helpful with itinerary and restaurant recommendations, and she takes extra care to make sure you are comfortable. Good location, exactly what you need in a hostel. Next time I'm in Florence I will be back!

I'm traveling in the offseason so sometimes good hostel environments are hard to come by. However at David Inn, Nadia (the last who runs the hostel) is an absolute angel. She goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable, just like family. I will definitely be back!

I spent 5 nights at David Inn and I'm glad I did. Nadia took her time helping me to plan my itinerary by letting me know where the bests sights are, how long to spend at them, and where the locals eat. She puts great effort into being available to help you find anything in Florence, and in helping you... More
