Stayed two nights here. Generous buffet breakfast each morning : scrambled eggs, poached eggs, baked beans, salad, fruit, fried rice, cereals, toast, coffee machine. Nearby the back of the SMN train station, only a 5 minute walk to the train station. A bit noisy but it's an old building so the noise echoes. Bathroom was inside the room shared by... More

It is a nice hostel in a good location. The full breakfast provides a nice start to a busy day. Most of the staff were nice and helpful. However, the overnight clerk was rude and demeaning. I don't know if he didn't like Americans, older guests, or just me. There is a reason why human beings smile at each other.... More

The hostel is very charming and well localized! You can easily walk to the train station and main tourist atractions. The rooms are clean and confortable. The common spaces are nicely decorated and the terrace and open areas are very pleasent! The overall infrastructure was really satisfactory. The breakfast is impressive for the variety offered! And as it is included... More

The reason behind the title "Brillant" is because they actually set up the hostel the way all hostels should be setup. Hot and cold water dispensers available 24hr, fast wifi. I stayed in a 8 bed share dorm, fortunately only 2 others were staying, but spacious layout, large lockers, comfortable beds, clean and nice bathrooms. The free breakfast is great... More

This hostel is located close to the main train station (Santa Maria Novella) around 5-10 minutes away and close to the Duomo too (other 10 minutes walking). I stayed in a room next to the dining room which is not ideal. Everyday I woke up around 5.30 am with noise coming from the kitchen. Late at night there was some... More

I had stayed on the hotel side before but this time, all they had available was the hostel side. I booked a triple room with a private bathroom/shower just for myself and ended up with a gigantic-size room with a personal computer (a very nice touch!)m free wi-fi and a decent breakfast for a very decent price. The location is... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in July. Was very happy with the hostels location, staff, breakfast and charm. Rooms were big, airy and quiet, and ours came with a large en suite and computer. The hostel is a short walk from all the sights of Florence and the main station. Breakfast was good (although there were a few unusual items... More

No complaints - the room was large and clean. Seemed to be expensive for what you got - breakfast was ok. And there were cheaper hotels nearby which were potentially nicer. Location in Florence is absolutely fantastic, very central, but is down an alley way which is pretty in the day but feels a bit unsafe at night.

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.
