The best hostel I stayed so far. Very spacious and comfortable. I strongly recommend it!
Perfect in every way and I'm a picky person!
An incredible location literally a few steps from the beautiful Duomo. Dinner and breakfast included too, which was not only convenient, but delicious too. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfy. Lockers were provided which always makes me happy because I feel like my stuff is extra secure. The atmosphere was great too especially having the opportunity to meet people over dinner. I would highly recommend this place if you can afford it!
It maybe the best choice for people who wants to travel Firenze. First of all, the woman staff with short blonde was very nice. Second, breakfast and the dinner(?) was served everyday.
Very well maintain comfortable hostel. The staff is not super inviting and it is not a very social hostel. Felt a little to sterol.
It's definitely one of the cooler looking hostels I've stayed in! There wasn't a whole lot in terms of a social atmosphere but that might be because I was there on a Monday. Breakfast was average... very sugary. The location and staff are great!
Brilliant hostel! Nice staff with excellent English. Toto, Rosa and long curly haired tall guy at night were all nice. Rooms and bathroom always clean. Only negative is noise transmits from loud doors and beds and pillows were too soft for my liking. About 15 min walk fr main train station. Accademia is on the same street as hostel. Duomo is just a few seconds away. Highly recommended!
is a perfect place almost in front of the Duomo. is very clean and new!
It is the best hostel ever. If you go to Florence, do not ever think to stay in a hostel other than this. Very good location. In the heart of Florence. The STAFF is also very friendly and helpful.
A bit hard to find if you don't know what your looking for

Very nice place, clean, well located, the staff very usefull. Beside Fiorenzi, I recommed to spend one day more taking the round trip to pisa.
This was the nicest hostel I have ever been to... they give free wine and snacks at dinner and free breakfast. They were so awesome for accommodating my allergy (I am allergic to gluten so it's really generally difficult to eat when traveling, especially in Italy!)
Perfect stay for Florence. Right in between the Duomo and the Museo Academia which houses David. Great breakfast spread and free pasta salad and wine every evening. Not many plugs in the room but overall a good stay!
Absolutely loved staying here! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The hostel is very clean and they offer amazing snacks and wine each afternoon! The location was perfect- walking distance to everything! I would recommend this place to anyone!

BEST HOSTEL I'VE EVER STAYED AT!!!! I can't even begin to explain how highly I recommend you stay here. Absolutely 100% worth your money. The staff is so friendly, the location is great ( right near the train station and the duomo ), they have secure lockers for your belongings as well as a electronically monitored and operated iron gate to enter the buildings, and everything is clean. Breakfast is included and they even provide a snack at 6:30 everyday with wine!
The perfect hostel! Comfy, clean, safe, friendly. Easy to meet other people, perfectly situated right in city center and close to train station. Staff is really nice!
Best hostel I've stayed in so far and should be rated the best hostel in Europe. Place was right where you would want to be in the city, staff would do anything to help you, plus directed me a great restaurant to eat at on my last night in Florence (Antica Trattoria da Tito). Place was very clean, provided lockers, and a reading light. Plus every day around 6 they provide a couple jugs of wine along with some pasta out on the terrace.
