Pros: The hostel has an excellent location, right near the Duomo and city center. The staff was nice and helpful. The facilities were very good. The beds and bedsheets were great. Cons: passive-aggressive signs all over the hostel (like "clean your stuff, your mama doesn't work here" and something like that... yes, I get bothered by this kind of thing hahaha come on people, more kindness, please?), the pillows were not so great in relation to the beds.

Very good in all levels. Good, friendly staff and great facilities (terrace, common areas,etc.) Perfect location in a quiet street, 50 meter from the Dome. A bit to the pricey site, but many free things included, like lamp, closet lock, towel and breakfast.

Great bfast! Friendly staff! Great location...less than a block from the florence cathedral (central location) 10 min walk to train station.

Although there is check in times listed and they do allow the bags to be stored. I still believe that one should be able to check in as soon as they arrive to the location. Sometimes flights get delayed or changed. After a long flight one just wants to drop off the luggage and slightly refresh and just go in the room even if it's only for a few minutes. Also if the ensuite is detached from the room it should be listed.

This is seriously THE BEST hostel I have ever stayed in so far. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They thoroughly clean the hostel every morning when everyone is out. The free wine and food session every evening is a great opportunity to mingle with other fellow travellers. Lockers within the rooms are also handy to keep all your belongings.

One of the best hostels I have stayed at. New, I stayed in a private room, it was large and spacious and the beds were comfortable. We met some really cool people, and the location was amazing(about a block from the duomo). They even offered complimentary wine during dinner time , and thats how we were able to meet some other people.

This hostel is one of the best I ve ever stayed at. Its location is simply perfect, the staff is extraordinarily friendly and helpful, the rooms are and bathrooms are very tidy.You even get breakfast and every evening the staff makes a wee snack and serves wine in the kitchen area so people can meet up and mix. I loved the atmosphere at this place. I strongly recommend the Academy Hostel in Florence!!!!

The staff is so friendly and helpful, the beds are very comfortable, the whole hostel and bathrooms are clean and the lockers are great. I had a wonderful time and I am so happy I chose Academy Hostel for my trip! I will recommend it to everyone I know. Thank you also for finding my lost bag and helping me have it sent back to me! I appreciate immensely.

The room is very big and clean. All the staff are very nice, especially the guy with long curled hairs. The walking route which he recommended to me was amazing and he also made super dilicious pizzas!!

One of my favourite hostels. The room was amazing!!! Book the 6 Bed dorm and you will have a room with two floors and a 8 meter high stuccoed ceiling. The hostel is next to the dome. When you exit and look right you can see it! Breakfast is sweet but good, late night snacks and wine at 6pm for free. BUT: you HAVE to leave the hostel between 11am and 2pm. it´s important that they clean, but sometimes you don´t want to get up at 10 so i didn´t like that. Wifi wasn´t working properly
