The attitude of the person in charge is awful. But first of all he does not has the right address, you get to a place where it the hostel is not located, then you have to call him and he comes and pick you up. That's totally random and in our personal opinion not trustful at all, it scares you. Then if he has two guests coming at the same time, he leaves you downstairs door closed and all waiting for a long time. He has no good service at all.


Heater was not provided, or i could say not working at all.. Overall nice room

The location was absolutely great!!! In the middle of everywhere in Florence. The main problem was cleanliness and heating. The rooms were freezing cold in January. Blankets were over-dirty and stinky, i think the staff should wash these with strong antibacterial chemials :D the rooms were seperated, if you want to use the bathroom you should go upstairs, which was really awkward :s The staff was very naive, symphatic and funny. And finally the street was very loud in the nights, hard to sleep


Great hostel! Cheap, simple and very comfortable!
