A perfect, small sleeping place between central station and S.Lorenzo. Booking price was very good and if you need a place only to sleep it's perfect. If you'are looking something more than a bed, I think this place is not for you!
Giovanna was very pleasant and welcoming. The room that I had was very clean and quiet. It was really nice to be able to come and go anytime during the day, there was no curfew. I would gladly stay with Giovanna again.

likes: the location, the cleanness, it was quiet without noise dislikes: you have to pay for the internet additionally 1 euro per day, it was unusual for me when I asked for the knife to cut my water-melon and I was given a plastic one. Is it easy to manage it with a plastic knife?)
a nice old lady, everything is fine! just be careful about Florence's mosquitoes in summer.
Great place to stay Very friendly, helpful staff. Location is great, close to the train station and walking distance to main attractions. Supermarket, laundromat, pub and resturants in the same street. The only thing I wished for was a fan at night as the room gets hot in summer.
Great hostel! Good price! We definitely recommend it!
My boyfriend and I stayed at this cute hostel for two nights. The owner is a really sweet, accommodating lady. She went out of her way to make me a cup of coffee with biscuits one morning. The only downside was that we had to pay for wifi (2 euro per day), however, the second night we didn't have two euro on us and she grant us access for the one euro that we had which was nice. It's also pretty centrally located which is a plus.
It's a very well located hostel, the people in reception are really nice and helpful. But the hostel does not have AC
Great location for exploring Florence, and close to the train station (easy walking distance). The hostel was pretty quiet. Staff had good knowledge of where to go, and were very friendly. Great place to stay if you are on a budget as it is clean and a good location. Only down side was that it was very hot in the rooms as there was no air con or fan which made it very difficult to sleep!
Its on the third floor and theres no elevator so you have to carry your lugage all the way up, if you dont have problems with that everything is OK. The location is excelent, very close to the Duomo and the Rail Station. Giovanna is very polite and friendly also, i had a good experience there, she gives you the keys of the inside and outside door of the hotel, so you can go out and return any time as you want without worrying about the hour.

This was in a great location and the lady who runs it is very nice but I have stayed in much better places for the same price and less in other tourist locations. It was very noisy even for a heavy sleeper. I was told I had to pay cash for a three night stay the night before I left so I had to go back out and to an ATM that night. The protocol around the room key and the holding of your passport didn't sit very comfortably with me either. However, as I said, it can't be beaten for location.
