Lovely place, great location! We had a great stay!


The location was fabulous and very convenient. I was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go. I used a taxi coming from the train station because of luggage. Alain was so helpful and accommodating. He gave a warm welcome and map pointing out locations of good spots for dining, shopping, etc. I went to 3 of the restaurants he recommended and loved them all. The room was very large and the place was spotless. I look forward to the next time I can return and would definitely recommend to stay here.

Great hostel in Firenze! Strongly recommend.


Had a great and very comfortable stay here. Alain gave us a lot of helpful tips on making the best out of our stay in Florence - restaurants, main attractions, day trips etc. He made us feel right at home by offering us breakfasts in our room, clean towels everyday and free use of the kitchen and its coffee machine. Our "ensuite" toilet was under repair and Alain was very apologetic and even gave us a discount. Really impressed by the level of service!


Had a great time here, right on the river. The place is really good and Alain was awesome. Very helpful in helping us book tours and giving us tips for places to eat and things to see.

Located near the historical center of Firenze with a nice view over the river and city. Staff was very nice and kind during our stay.


This is the first time ever staying in a hostel for me and this place completely surprised me. (Pleasantly surprised!) It was the cutest little hostel ever and it was in a great location. Alain was incredibly helpful and kind and was just an overall great host. The room was great and our other facilities were just as nice and clean.


Great location to see all the main sites, museums and duomo, ect., and close to train station (SMN) on bus 23/D so very easy to get to. The staff were very helpful and friendly, giving us a map and telling us which places were good ( food and main sites). The 3 bed room was very large and many facilities provided(wifi, kettle,towel) and has a kitchen with balcony where you can drink coffee. However if you have large luggage it's quite hard to get up all those steps! Overall i enjoyed my stay.


Brilliant. The staff are lovely and really friendly / helpful. It's in a perfect location on the south bank of Florence, opposite the main attractions such as the Dumo. There are some good, less touristy restaurants around the B

Everything is good and we appreciated the host's advice and welcoming wine! What a generous person he is!


It was an amazing B&B with the perfect location, just outside the turism hell, but close to everything at the same time. Some rooms have a view over the river and the whole city- so beautiful! Private bathrooms. The staff was amazing, so friendly and helpful. There is breakfast included, and it was fine -some crosaints, jam, nutella and toast. And the juice, hot chokolate and great coffee options! You have to walk to 4th floor with your bags, its an old hostoric building, so no elevator.


We had a wonderful stay here. The owner was extremely hospitable and helpful and the location was fantastic we had a view of the duomo and the Arno from our room. I would highly recommend this guest house. We came with three children and had a wonderful time.


I have stayed at this hostel twice now and I am always so happy with my stay! The rooms are huge and beautiful with great views and your own bathroom. The owners are very sweet and considerate, always making sure you are having a good stay. The location is perfect, in a quiet garden just off a main street, walking distance to everything but not in the big busy touristy areas. Just an excellent place to stay in Florence!


This place was great! As a solo traveller, the property was a bit antisocial (obviously). The location is fantastic! Close to everything but just far enough away that you don't get lost looking for your door in a sea of tourists. My room even had a great view of the Duomo! Owners are also super helpful and helped me with places to eat great food without the large price tag.
