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.

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
