“A massive hostel with ALL amenities”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Florence is a small city, and this hostel is pretty much in the center of the city. everything is 5 mins walking.
The hostel is huge, and has a whole lot of things because of that. Tons of food stuff to buy, net cafe, wifi, balconies to chill on, clean rooms and clean bathroom.
the best part about being in a shared room was our en-suite bathroom. didn't have to worry about this one because of that.
also, there is a restaurant where you can eat.
BUT THE BEST thing about this place is the breakfast. its a HUGE spread, eat all you want and is super tasty.

Room Tip: the breakfast is to die for.

Breakfast is great. Location is good and near central station. Free tour is recommended. Baggage keeping service is convenient. The "Message/request to the hotel" item has no use. I wrote "lower berth of bunk bed is preferred", but I was assigned to the only upper berth of bunk bed in that room. The washroom in my room is dirty. Also, hope the hostel can provide convenient charger adapters for tourists. I was not the only person who would like to borrow an European standard charger but was declined.

The breakfast is included and is good, with bread, jam, cereals, milk...You can buy frozen food in the reception for 3.5 euros.

The rooms and bathroom could be cleaner. The localisation is great, in the center of Florence, close to the lorenzo market.

Yes, this hostel is convenient and relatively clean, which is why I'm not giving it a lower rating. However, compared to some of th eohter great European hostels out there, and especially others in Florence, this hostel was a huge disappointment. Breakfast was gross, the people who wrked there were not friendly or interested in making suggestions. Above all, I was forced to move into a different bunk to accommodate an older guest--in of itself, something I approve of, not forcing an elderly man to climb a bunk--but I was not consulted, merely told to switch beds when I arrived back at 930pm after a long day of touring around. I had already been in the hostel for three nights at that point. Overall, it was fine but I've heard of many nicer hostels in Florence that I wish I had stayed at. A hostel can be a great opportunity to enhance your trip and meet new people, so if you want somewhere fun and friendly--this place is not it.

Within 3 minutes walk from the main train station of Florence, 5 min walk to the main square of the town, the location could not be any better. Free wifi throughout the hostel is great and computers in each room as well. The rooms are not massive but well sized with a moderate sized bathroom and are very clean.
The breakfast is great for travellers on a budges with many choices. The front desk staff are quiet helpful if you need any advice where to go or what to do. We did a Tuscan wine tour that the front desk recommended which was great fun.
