Amazing location, walking distance to all main attractions. Lovely receptionist, Diana. Clean and well maintained. Lots of good eats near by especially gelato! Make sure to email before hand when you're arrival will be to make sure there is someone to check you in!

Cleanliness of hotel and attention to every detail. Also helpfulness of staff. Located just 100 m from Uffizi Gallery with an amazing view on Signoria Square. Walking distance to main Florence attractions. Highly recommended.

The hostel staff is awesome! They really make you feel at home, and make it easy for solo travellers like me to meet new people. The hostel is very well located, it is within a walking range of all the main turistic attractions. I would definitely recommend this hostel to everyone!

AMAZING time at Alex House. Feels like staying at a friend's house because the staff members are so young, friendly, and sociable. Small hostel with 1 main common area, where everyone pretty much has to meet each other. Rooms are spacious.Good wifi, cool people, great experience!

We stayed in the separate small apartment with adress Via Magalotti, just around the corner from the hostel itself. The standard was ok considering the price and our late booking (clean sheets, ok beds, two very cramped rooms and an interesting solution to building a bathroom in a very old house) and the location is very central. And of course... More

This place is awesome. On our Euro Trip we were used to taking the metro to the places we wanted to see, but not this one. You are in the middle of everything! The room was great and the price was affordable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They gave us a map and started circling all the must-see... More

The location was great. It's around the corner from one of the main streets for restaurants/bars and a few minutes walk from the major sights (Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Vecchio, etc.) The area is very safe and the room/bathroom is clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was no kitchen, but there was a table and fridge in the... More
