Great value and location for doing day trips. Florence is relatively small so it is not to far to walk into the old town. Very clean rooms, and great kitchen facilities. Closest supermart is at the main train station. We stayed in a twin private and found a very clean modern comfortable room. Highly recommend.

We stayed two nights in Florence. The hostel is very well situated 5 minutes walking form the historic centre. Very clean and comfortable rooms and friendly receptionist. Highly recommended! As you need to do in every hostel...never forget to right your name in the things youstore in the fridge.. ;)

Stayed here for a couple of days on our way to Rome from Switzerland. This did not feel like a hostel (had a hotel feel to it), was very clean and extremely affordable. The location was perfect with just a few min walk to the train station.

-- The receptionist was very helpful with the places to visit, mode of travel, answering our question etc. in fluent English which was a big plus in Italy.
-- We had picked a double room and a single dorm bed. The double room where I stayed was quite spacious with a balcony facing the main road.
-- The rooms are very clean and wifi is accessible even in the top floors.
-- The shared kitchen is quite neat and has everything that is needed.
-- The hostel is located within a few min walk to most attractions and sights like the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio etc.

The only issue we faced was with the bathrooms.
There are 2 shared bathrooms per floor and get quite dirty based on the number of people using them. Our floor had 4 double rooms and at peak time it was almost impossible to get a vacant bathroom.

All in all, a great value for money.

Room tip: Pick the rooms on the top floors; less traffic noise and quieter.

Spent three nights with my family of four in mid-July. Our room (four beds) was clean and comfortable. Shared bath was fine (there were two on our floor) but one toilet was missing a seat and the other did not have a lock on its door. The kitchen was certainly serviceable and good to have. Location is a good 20 minute walk to the Duomo, but of course we knew it was a bit of a walk. The immediate area was fine, felt safe walking to/from. Our room was a bit noisy with road traffic though. Staff was very helpful and friendly and of course the price was right.

Room tip: Try and get a room away from the street - a lot of traffic.

We stayed here for two nights whilst in Florence. The location was fairly convenient, walking distance to the train station and the historic centre. Each dorm has a number of single beds, rather than bunk-beds, which were comfortable and made for a nice change. Our floor (and I'm assuming the other floors also) had two bathrooms with showers and a well equipped kitchen and nice communal area, which were all clean. Security is fairly good, you need a key to access your floor and your room. However, there are no lockers in the rooms which is inconvenient. The staff behind the counter were nice and allowed us to store our laptop behind the desk, but some lockers would have been better. Overall, our stay at Ciao Hostel was really good and we would recommend it. Note that reception is not 24 hours. Also there are a few mosquitoes in the building so maybe bring insect repellent!
