My stay at the David Inn was excellent. The staff was more than helpful and made my visit perfect. The rooms were clean and our beds were made daily by the staff. I felt at home while staying there. I would highly recommend this hostel l.

Thank you very much. I try to do my best every day to make everyone feel at home. I'm happy with you have succeeded!


In a good place.


The room near to receiption was quiet noisy when someone talk at receiption. Location was good. The ladder for the bed of the top was very uncomfortable for climb. The person who clean the room moves the things which need you find your things for a while after cleaning.

Everyone has their own opinions and you have to respect them ...... but if guests speak in the common rooms or in rooms is not a big problem ..... it happens sometimes, for conversation and friendship can we say that ... ladders are uncomfortable .... oh, well ... I do not seem major disadvantages !!


This was the best hostel stay I ever did. Nadia was extremely welcoming and helpful. She guided me very well throughout my stay there. I met some fantastic hostel mates. It's clean, comfortable, calm and my room had a fantastic look over an inner garden and dome of florence cathedral. I will Definately choose this hostel again if I come back.

Guests respectful of the place and other people like you are always welcome: we are happy to have had you and please come again !!


My stay at David Inn was fantastic - I even ended up staying longer than I originally planned. The location is as good as it gets - steps away from the Duomo and the accademia galleria which houses the original statue of David. On top of that, Nadia, the owner, is the biggest sweetheart. She is so nice and accommodating and gives you excellent advice on what to do around Florence, and is always willing to help you out. Would definitely recommend and will be coming back some day!

A hug from me and my staff with all my heart ... we wait you again !! Bisous


Nadia is lovely, she is very helpful and very outgoing. The rooms are quite spacious and the location couldn't be better. If going in summer, mosquito repellent is a MUST! mosquitos are VICIOUS in Florence and since it gets too hot at night you are bound to open windows for fresh air and breeze and that's when the mosquitos come for you. There is no common room but pretty good place to meet and talk to people. There is a restaurant called Casa dil Vino around the area, YOU MUST GO THERE!

Thanks for the compliments .... the mosquitoes are a big problem in Florence and other cities where the vegetation is lush and not given a disintìfettante beginning of the season! The best advice is that everyone please bring a strong personal repellent suitable for your skin. Beyond this I am glad you have found yourself well! Torna..sarà my pleasure to see you again!


It's been about 6years since I last stayed in a Hostel.I planned to stay only 3 days and ended up staying 5, apart from the fact that Florence is stunning, Nadia the owner made me feel very welcome. All the morning staff were very helpful and we even practiced my poor Italian, some French, Spanish and English. Nadia's suggestions were spot on and tried to make sure everyone was involved in some kind of activity. The hostel has an atmosphere that makes you feel at home. I will return for sure.

This hostel has a very good location. Staff is very helpful. Relatively clean hostel and bathroom. Good atmosphere. But the bed is not so comfortable for sleeping. Good atmosphere for making friends.
