Ciao Hostel
Ranked #91 of 311 Specialty Lodging in Florence
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 26, 2011

The hostel has a great kitchen and spacious room. The receptionist was knowledgable and very helpful. The area of the hostel is in the city center. The public buses are in front of the hostel. 5 minutes to the SMN Station by bus and about 10 minutes walking to the station. Everything was walking distance to main attraction places. The only disappointment we experienced was the hostel elevator was'n working at all during our stay and we had to go to the fourth floor. The bathroom wasn't taking care of (clean) that often, the lights wasn't working and after reporting it to the front desk, no one came to fix it. It was bad service! Fortunately we didn't stay that much in the hostel but we still expected nice and clean service.

Besides the proximity to the train station, the modern contemporary decor seen in the photos of the rooms sold us when we booked online. The room actually was as photographed and pretty good, except the designer bed cover was stained and hadnt been cleaned and the bed sheet, though clean was torn. We were promised we would share the bathroom with one other room - what they neglected to mention was that other room was a dorm with 4-5 teenagers and obviously the bathroom was always dirty and never cleaned during our 2 day stay. If only the concept of cleanliness could be explained to the management...
