Got there too early to check in but allowed to put our belongings in the storage room. 24hr friendly helpful reception staff.. Rooms spotless also a small shared kitchen where you could grab a drink or make a snack. The hostel does want everyone out...More
Centrally located hostel, perfect for sightseeing. It's less than a block away from the Doumo and 2 blocks away from Academia Gallery. Breakfast is included and it is just so-so. I wish they at least change the type of bread, jam, cereals on a regular...More
And for the price wow!! The location is vibrant and very practical, it's clean and comfortable and not very far from the train station. I would definitely recommend it for the price! My friends were skeptical about staying in a hostel and were very surprised...More
Location: This hostel in a min away from the Santa Maria Del Fiore, 3-4 min from Accademia Gallery, and San Marcos Piazza, and about 10min walk from train station along one straight route until Santa Maria Cathedral. So, in short all attractions are within 2-3k...More
The first hostel I stayed in and was pretty good. Friendly and helpful staff. Lots of communal spaces. Decent rooms and comfortable. Good bathrooms. Generally a good but not exceptional hostel.
Big plus is the location. Florence isnt huge so location isnt a big issue...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
