This hostel in two words: old and neglected. The rooms definitely could look better. They were clean but the furniture - beds & lockers - were old. Plus for nice, clean bathrooms and nice staff. It was relatively cheap but for such a low standard, I’d say still overpriced.

The location of the hostel is perfect, approximately 10min. of walking distance from Duomo de Santa Maria. Rooms are clean and sheets are being changed every day. Kitchen is ok, stove is a bit slow to boil the water and is a bit problematic when there are more people cooking. Supermarket is right next to the hostel. In any case,...

It was a very nice stay, honest price in the center of venice, nice people that work there and a very nice bike rental deal that you should take. Bathrooms working with no greater problems. A nice small balcony between the bildings that some may call terrace. But overall a nice enjoyd stay

It's a cheap place, so don't expect too much. What I needed was just a bed for the night and shower, so it was OK. There is no AC, so it was quite hot. You get clean sheets, kitchen and bathroom are reasonably clean. Overall, it's a good, cheap hostel.

I read reviews on all my hostels but for some reason neglected to see that this one did not have AC. It's pretty warm in Florence in the summer months and in a 16 bed dorm with one window it gets insanely hot. I'm not picky or high maintenance but if I can't sleep because I'm drenched in my own...

Place was really simple but also a labyrinth, It wasn't decorative and rooms were more than simple, But its also cheap and you get a bed to sleep in, many services as you can wash your laundry and its close to the city center. Kitchen is a nice plus, its public so you may have to wait your turn. There...

Overall it was alright. The rooms weren't great and the bathroom wasn't stocked with soap or towels. I thought it was okay, though, because the room was cheap. But then the key of another guest broke off in the lock to our room, locking us out of our dorm. The man working that night offered no solution to get into...

Santo Spirito / San Frediano

“Book early even when doing online booking. Private rooms probably best if a couple. Lots and lots of stairs so request lower floors if needed prior to arriving.”
