“Florence with Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

The hostel is in a fantastic location. The staff are very friendly and helpful and there are 100% cotton sheets on the bed! It is not a hostel for partly goers and is strick on noise after 12.00 so perfect for families.

Room Tip: The room are quite hot and on the street side can be noisy, but this is just background and did not...

This hostel was great, one of the best places in Florence in my opinion. In addition to the dorms you'd expect from a youth hostel, there are also rooms for single travellers or families in a different building across the street. I stayed there and the bathroom was shared but it was cleaned every day. The rooms looked great and the beds were comfortable. The area isn't the quietest at night but it's not a problem if you close the windows. The staff was friendly, too. The best part was probably the location, since it's right next to one of the main piazzas and everything in the centre is very close.

When we arrived, they couldn't find a key to our room, so we had to wait for an hour before they got another copy of our key to give us. The wi-fi worked for a few minutes (although it was a slow connection) before going out and not working for the rest of our 2-night stay. The lobby had working wi-fi but they would not allow us to sit there and use it when we returned to the hostel at night. In addition, the single bathroom (with the shower and toilet in the same room) was shared by many people resulting in long waits to shower in the morning and uncomfortable waits to use the bathroom. Great location, though.

My best friend and I stayed here for a weekend and loved it. It was quite and clean and in a very good location. The hostess is very nice and accommodating, and there was a very cute puppy there during our stay, which added to our experience. We stayed in a two-bed room and were thankful and grateful we booked here. Thank you for a nice experience!

owing to a mistake I made in my booking coupled with a stollen credit card-my booking at the Hostel was cancelled. When my wife arrived with our two bikes and no reservations Francesco quickly intervened and solved our problem within 20 minutes. He got us another hotel room nearby and did so with a great attitude and cheer. We stayed in the Hostel 6 days later after our bike trip in Tuscany. The location is great-but the noise from the street below can be quite loud- bring earplugs. Overall I would recommend this hostel to budget travellers who don't need luxuries-but are interested in being in the heart of the action as well as being taken good care of by the staff.

the location is perfect. it is in the center of the florence. the rooms are a little bit small but they are ok. i would go there again. the bathrooms were shared but they were clean. there is lock out form 10 am to 2 pm but you are going to florence you should be visiting some places during these hours. i stayed in a 3 bed private room and there was a fridge and a tap in our room.

We stayed in Florence Youth Hostel in February for 2 nights. It was a last-minute change of plan as our other accommodation had been cancelled on us so we booked online and sent a direct email to the hostel in the morning to notify them of our arrival that evening. When we arrived to check in nobody answered the door. Thankfully there was a restaurant across the street that phoned the hostel to inform them we were waiting on their doorstep. The owner met us on the street and took us upstairs to our room. The room was fairly clean but we were only provided with one towel. The shared amenities were small but very clean. There was wi-fi internet access included in the price, as well as a communal computer for guests without their own. The breakfast was not included but was only 2.50 euro for a full breakfast of toast, scrambled eggs, cereal, cake, coffee, tea, fruit. The hostel itself was not noisy at night but the street below was particularly loud, even with the windows closed. It was close to many attractions of Florence.
