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!


Very sympathetic owner, nice room! Just difficult to find, because the name of the hostel is very small, but is in a very good location! I really like it


The hostel was really close to the central train station. The staff was helpful in getting around the city and giving information. The rooms were as to be expected and not too bad. there are multiple bathrooms which meant there was no waiting to use a bathroom when getting ready. Also the staff allowed me to leave my bags after checkout for a few hours before I left the city and that was really helpful becasue I didn't have to pay for an extra night.

There were not individual places to lock things up in the rooms. The walls were also covered in squished bugs. I found a few hairs still on the pillow and in the sheets. The internet barely worked, we were lucky to be on for more than 2 minutes at a time. It was a little hard to find also, a sign would have been helpful.
