We stayed in the four bed mixed hostel for two nights. The wifi almost never worked. It's about a 15 minute walk into town. However the most shocking was the giant hole above one of the communal showers.

The shared bathroom was really dirty and it was kind of a long walk from the city center.

Great hostel. Wish was a little closer to center city but still a quick walk! Would stay there again. Loved the balcony rooms.

More like a hotel than a hostel. The staff were helpful and polite. The rooms were clean and spacious. I had to switch rooms after the first night to a quieter and there were no problems with that - they didn't even charge me extra. Each floor has 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. No place to lock your valuables in. 10 min walk to train/bus station to go into Florence. 20-25 min walk to city center.

The lady at the front desk was super friendly and gave us a lot of information. The kitchen was nice to have. It was a little farther from city center (15min), but it is cheap so can't really complain. The only other downside was one of the bathroom had a leaking ceiling. Overall a great value.

Nice and close to the train station and like everything else in Florence, only a 20min walk anywhere important. More like a hotel, so don't expect a lounge to meet people or laundry facilities. Quiet place to relax and do your own thing. WiFi was a little patchy and everyone seriously needs to learn to clean up after themselves in the washrooms, but otherwise a decent stay.

The room was nice and the beds were comfortable. Shared bathrooms were okay, the water was hot but soaked the floor when showering. The staff were pleasant, but not overly knowledgeable about the local area and couldn't recommend a nice restaurant nearby. Location wise it is about a 15 minute walk to the centre of Florence - I'd probably stay somewhere closer to the centre next time. This is not a lively hostel and it was very, very quiet the while time we were there

Staff (Ali at the front desk) was very helpful. Had a wonderful and simple way to give you an orientation of the city. As a solo backpacker, it's helpful for hostels to have common areas to hang out in. Though the hostel had a beautiful garden area, it was challenging to interact with other travelers very often. Hostel is a bit out of the way. MINIMUM 45 min+ walk to any of the big sites (Colesseum, Trevie Fountain, etc.)

Really nice Hostel! It's so good that almost looks like a hotel. Every floor has a independent kitchen, living room and two bathrooms. So this is really good if you want privacy. It's very close to the train station, and not very far from the rest of the city! Every thing was very clean and very organized, and the staff was very helpful (even lent me umbrellas on a rainy day).

A good place to stay. Good self catering facilities and close to the train station. Nothing laking but not amazing either.
