The hostel is conveniently located less than 10 minutes from the Santa Maria Novella train station, and around the corner from the Mercato Centrale, an impressive food market. The staff are always available to answer questions and provide assistance, including printing, providing information about sites around the city and storing valuables. The rooms are comfortable and have much-needed air conditioning.... More

It's a hostel. So just know that. But having stayed in hostels all over Europe, I can hands down say this is my favorite. They have a big hot breakfast each morning. It's within easy walking distance to everything important in Florence and the SMN train station. Awesome place.

Hostel is clean but old decor. A real old time Italian feel to it. Nice atmosphere! We stayed in a room facing onto the outdoor courtyard. Very close to the train station and the city centre. The breakfast isnt bad but there is no kitchen to make your own food. There is a shop by the reception to buy things... More

The hostel is located near the train station Santa Maria Novella( 5-10 mins walk) and also is very close the the old city centre. There are many bistros, restaurants and cafes nearby too. The staff was friendly, though not very talkative and rather cold. Every bed has its own locker(key incl.). The rooftop garden is great for drinking a beer... More

I stayed in a 6 person female dorm. It was a fine room, there was air conditioning and the bathrooms and the rooms were really clean. The free breakfast buffet was the same thing every day basically and there were vegetarian options which was nice. I thought it was really great they included the breakfast. The location is good.

This was an awesome hostel. Quite possibly the favorite of my trip with school. We had a window door thing that opened out onto a terrace with a garden. The little garden also served as a patio where you could eat food from the onsite restaurant, which we might have made use of had it not rained nearly the entire... More

The location was very practical near the train station and the main attractions were walking distance. The terraces and outside garden were beautiful and help relieving out of the nauseating smell of the hostel. The breakfast was ok, at least there are coffee machines and some fruits and biscuits, the lady was also very smiley and helpful. The welcome is... More

I shared a '4 bed mixed dorm with private bathroom', however there were 5 beds. Didn't worry me in the slightest but be aware this may happen if you book. Free brekkie is incredibly average - having staying in other hostels around Tuscany, their breakfasts far surpassed this place, but you don't go to Italy for the hostel food! Was... More
