There are two parts to this hostel one where reception is and one across the road in apartments on the main road. The latter is rooms along the corridor with a kitchen at the end an outdoor area, one bathroom with a shower and a toilet. For all the rooms, most dorms, there is only one shower. The set up also makes it really noisy. You can hear everyone come in and out etc. The kitchen is probably the only bonus.

The room I stayed in was very dirty, the bed very uncomfortable and there were bed bugs! The room was extremely hot too. So I spent the whole night very hot and itching and constantly being woken up.

I didn't feel for what I paid the conditions should have been so bad

Room Tip: I think there are loads of good hostels in Florence, but it is difficult to find a sociable hostel as a lot of the rooms are on floors of apartments without communal areas and no reception. There are some though, I think it's worth booking in advance. I was at Pitti Uomo, a show for work and then stayed on for the weekend so things book out quickly as it's high season and the show attracts a lot of people. I have had another experience where the address of the hostel was central and then when you went to the address to check in they took you to another place (like a room in a corridor) much further away. So I do suggest being v cautious when booking.

I stayed 4nights, but my room was seperated from main building.
coz I choice single room type.
so, I couldn't use wi-fi and there was shared bathroom.
I think main building would be better than.

If you're a backpacker being in an uncomfortable place, with dirty sheets, no breakfast, having to go across the street to get wi fi will be no problem to you. This place is near downtown but so are a hundred other bed and breakfast. Look elsewhere. They never check what's left in the fridge, so you might find a lot of surprises. Staff is very helpful and friendly, but owner is never there.

This place was great value and was only a short walk from the main train station. Our room was a good size with a private bathroom. The aircon comes on at night automatically and there was free wifi. The staff were friendly and helped recommend some places to eat. There was also a common room and vending machine.

Room Tip: The room at the front facing the courtyard has low privacy if the windows are open and people are in the courtyard.

This hostel got some quite bad ratings previously. Honestly, I don´t know why. The rooms are clean, large enough, bathrooms tidy and most importantly the staff is amazing, helpful and very kind. The only minor issue was that the hostel is a 5-10 min. casual walk from the strict centre of Florence. On the other hand it´s right by the main train station which can be useful when arriving or leaving by train.
