“Great cheap place in Florence, great location!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

This is a great place for backpackers! Walking distance from Santa Maria Novella train station, in the San Lorenzo area, where there's daily market, just a few steps from the great Santa Maria Novella, Santa Maria in Fiore and Campanile di Giotto, Piazza della Signoria, Uffizi and Ponte Vecchio, it's a great place for people who want to save money and enjoy one of the best city in the world.
Clean bedrooms and dormitories, you can choose a family room with private bathroom, very clean, with lockers, or a place in a dormitory - there are 4, 6, 9 places rooms in dormitories, each with its own bathroom and lockers. A nice common area, great paintings on the walls, friendly and young staff, you can book the breakfast in advance and choose from a good choice of food - continental and american breakfast.
I'd strongly recommend this place.

Room Tip: High floor, garden side

Good Location, The hotel was located near the train and bus station. There were many restaurants around hostel but you can order food for lunch or dinner. The breakfast was variety and good.

I stayed in 4 bed female dorm. There is a computer and wifi in the room. The bathroom inside bedroom is clean. There is a cupboard for each bed.

There was a city tour at 10 am but I didn't join them. Staff were friendly and I recommend this hostel.

The hostel has a very friendly decoration from the moment you get inside. The 6 bed rooms was quite good. Internet connection failed every while. Includes free breakfast which is nice. I asked for a towel the first day and they told me they didn't have at the moment ans ask again tomorrow...

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.

stayed in the hotel, good size single room massive bathroom & very clean. staff are friendly & helpful, close to train station & all the sights, breakfast is very good lots of variety that you dont usually get in italy, some good restaurants close by, only downside it has the slowest elevator in the world but not a problem. would stay here again.
