The wifi connection was quite poor in the rooms and water was unbearably cold in the shower. Other than that everything was perfect!


Having to share one bathroom/toilet with 7 people can be tricky. But there are also public bathroom/toilets available. The location is perfect! Right smack in the centre, 30 seconds from florence cathedral! Te staff are great, very helpful and friendly. Although the breakfast can only be caled mediocre


Beautiful hostel in the most perfect location, steps away from the Duomo!! The staff were welcoming and helpful. I stayed in 6 bedroom dorm and I really appreciated how each bed felt like it had its own private little space with a nightstand, nightlight and locker, separated from other beds. I will definitely stay here the next time I am in Florence.


Great location, and so easy to find because it's right by the Duomo. Very clean because they make you leave between 11 & 2:30 everyday. The staff was very nice and helpful, not a party atmosphere.


This hostel was great! Reception was ready and helpful to check you in. They provided a good breakfast spread as well as dinner, drinks, a towel, and you own flashlight. The lockers were big and the beds were spread out into single beds so it was pretty private even in the 6 person room. Laundry was only €6 and the location is right outside of the Duomo. It's definitely worth the extra cash!!


Great hostel! Excellent location, very close to sights in Florence. Staff was very helpful and even went out of their way to provide breakfast for us when leaving way before designated breakfast time. Have to share a bathroom with most of the floor, but it wasn't much of an issue during our stay.
