This hostel was high above expectations , the bed was extremely comfortable. wonderful large bathroom ! The hostel has many delightful sitting areas. the location is literally attached to the Uffizi Gallery and walking distance to major sights in Florence. The staff was very nice and helpful. I will definitely recommend this hotel to friends.

Excellent location close to the station, river and historic centre.Awesome! We loved the decor, which is a mix of modern style with tradition. The room we had was spacious, clean and had comfortable bed. The staff was very friendly. And it's the best value for money we ever had!

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
