Great place to stay! Location could not be better! No bunk beds is bliss! It's definitely NOT a 'party hostel' which is such a HUGE BONUS!... Here you can actually sleep when you need/want to! Staff are really warm and friendly and efficient! Plenty of opportunities to socialise - but in a very CIVILIZED way! They organise 'nibbles' early every evening - and it's a very nice way to meet people and actually TALK to them, instead of going out and getting drunk... Facilities are very good! The showers are fantastic! The only problem I found was not so much with the hostel itself but with the fact that girls these days seem to prioritize their 'fashion sense' over the need to respect others you may be cohabiting with... the high heels on the wooden and stone floors are a nightmare... so are the hair-dryers and the huge suitcases... Other than that, I felt really safe and confortable there for the whole of the 2 weeks I spent in Florence! Thanks, Academy! You're a number 1 in my Hostel book!
