We are a couple who travelled from Australia to Florence. The location of the accommodation was good (close to shopping and walking streets, and points of interest such as museums and churches and stuff). The staff knew quite a bit about the area and were able to point out the points of interest on the free map they gave us when we checked in.
The building is quite old so the only heating system they have is those old gas heaters (i think) so the room was very very cold (in winter time; which is when we were there). If you were after a double room, they'll smoosh two single beds together, which seems to be trending around Europe i must say.
I am aware that Italian people don't really eat breakfast so it's not really anything to rave about. But if you're okay with coffee and nutella toast then you'll be okay. Although, buying a baguette and cheese from the supermarket would be just as good if you didn't want to partake.
Overall, it's not so much a hotel and it's not so much a hostel, but it's somewhere in between. Like everyone else's review is saying, you get what you pay for. When you think about it, you're only sleeping there, and then going out during the day to look at cool stuff and drink tiny coffees at tiny cafes with tiny italian people.
