We stayed in the new block, and it was lovely and clean, modern but with nice old touches like the beams and window arch. Room was quite small but with everything, good shower en suite, and there was a great communal area with computer (on internet), fridge, cooking facilities and coffee maker with coffee provided. Owners were helpful and friendly, all in all a very pleasant stay in a beautiful city, couldn't have asked for much more

No joke, this was the best, cleanest, most amazing spot I could have imagined. I have stayed in a few other hostels in Italy and they were disgusting. This place should cost 5x the amount that I paid. The rooms are perfect. You go through a main entrance on a not busy street, then this cute man shows you to your room and gives you a key. The room is clean and completely re-done. The walls are white, the floors and clean and the bathroom is immaculate. I would recommend this to my grandparents if they ever went to Italy let alone ANY of my friends. Please keep this place busy to make sure they are open for the next time I visit. Thanks!!!

Room tip: Get the new refurbished rooms. AMAZING

We stayed only two nights but the place it is really nice. The street numbers are a bit odd in Florence with the black numbers referring to Homes and sometimes hotels and the red numbers for shops. In saying that dont trust google maps to pin point number 63 as it places it on the wrong side of the street. Walking down via Nazionale from the train main train station (with train tracks behind you, exit the station on the left hand side) the b&b street is the second street. The maps places number 63 on the right side but it is in fact on the left hand side. 63 is just 50 meters down on the left hand side. The owners are great and very attentive. They were waiting for us while having lunch at a trattoria in view of the building door. We booked a room with private bathroom and toilet and it was fantastic. They actually own a floor with rooms a couple of doors down which was great as they were on the first floor instead of the third floor at n. 63. The place was modern, new and spotless. Free good wi fi. A computer and a kitchen well appointed although we chose to eat out. The room was beautiful ( room 7 ) light blue walls, high ceiling with exposed wood beams. Bathroom, shower and toilet all new. With air conditioning and a small flat screen tv on the wall. Really great value for the price and the central and accessible location. Quiet place but friendly feel. A short walk to the Duomo with plenty of small cute restaurants in the same street. A++++++++++++

My fiance and I stayed at Il Ghiro for 2 nights while on a whirlwind mini-tour of Europe. We searched in advance for inexpensive, but quality hostels or hotels that would allow us to maximize our stay in each city. Il Ghiro fit the bill perfectly! The atmosphere was bright and friendly, the accommodations were extremely clean... but the LOCATION is what made this place unbeatable. The Il Ghiro "hostel" (i'd liken more to a small hotel) is barely 1 block from the Firenze train station, and within in short walking distance of every major attraction in Florence. Plenty of amazing restaurants and gelaterias are right around the corner. If you're looking for simple and clean inexpensive rooms in the heart of Florence, look no further.

Staying at Il Ghiro was an absolute treat! They had just finished renovating the new location right next door and we were the first to stay in the "Green Room". The amenities were great and the renovations were done very well. Our room had a private bathroom, queen bed, small flat panel tv with cable, and a large armoir for clothes. Right outside the room was a brand new computer with free internet, a full size kitchen with all utensils, an espresso machine with free coffee pods, and a large flat panel tv on the wall. Free wifi was available, but we couldn't seem to connect with our iPods. I'm guessing this kink has been worked out since we stayed. The owners were extremely nice and helpful during our stay. The location is easy to reach from the train station, and is also very close to the central market. If you stay here, we highly recommend eating at Zaza.

If you're going to stay in Florence and you're looking for an economical/comfortable choice, go with Il Ghiro, you won't be disappointed!
