We had a really enjoyable stay at this hostel. Nadia is absolutely brilliant, providing great tourist information and a friendly greeting everyday. The hostel is in an ideal location, very close to the major attractions.

Nadia is very welcoming with a clear passion for her city and her guests. Location is absolutely incredible, right between Michelangelo's David and the Duomo (could see the Duomo from my bed). Showers weren't great given the water pressure which needs to be looked at. Only complaint is the staff appearing slightly pushy in regards to selling the day trips, research them before you decide to go on one - some were quite disappointed with them

On arrival one of the staff got a map and showed me many of the attractions in Florence and how to buy tickets to see them. A nice personal touch.

I loved the hostel too much! Everything was just perfect, nice staff, very kind and helpful owner (Nadia). Generally I had a good stay in the hostel, Location is amazing, only a few minutes to center, and the area is very clean. I am planning to back there in winter when Finland is very cold to enjoy the nice weather of lovely Italy. Arvin Iran_Finland

It's very small. Kind of an apartment with beds, which makes it very nice. Also the staff was very friendly.

If you go to Florence stay here!!! The location is good,just 5 minutes from the Duomo and about 15 minutes from the station. The staff is great! Especially Nadia! She is so enthousiastic and tells you everything about Florence! One of the other staffmembers showed me a bit of the city on his free day! My room (6 persons) was big with own computer and bathroom. The rooms are very clean!!! If I go to Florence again I will definitly stay here again!

Great hostel! Super friendly open-minded hostess and good looking staff ;) I'll definitely come back to Florence and in this hostel. It's more like a flat share than a hostel and I like the stil of interior :)

Having come from an array of commercial hostels, this one was a bit of a change. But this might be one of the better hostels in Florence. Facilities could see a facelift, but Nadia is amazing and full of energy - even when you're so tired as you enter the place to check-in from the travel, she warmly invites you in and boosts you up back to full energy levels!

Nadia made my day. I am looking forward to visiting the David Inn again!

Great place. I'd stay again. Their reception does close at night and it's not so much a hostel as someone's apartment turned hostel. You trade the convenience of a business with the friendliness and family feel. Rooms were great. Bathrooms were fine besides showers could be updated. Spout was somewhat broken. There's also really only 1 working shower for up to 10-15 people.

Historical Palace in 1400 ..... with fresco authentic on the wall in hall and of the Property and in a room ... pity to note that ch is irrelevant and not what really counts! See especially the bathrooms were 3!

Awesome location and basic facilities. Slightly run down and dated. Poor wifi in my room but alright communally. Beautiful view from rooms window which almost made up for it. Poorly equipped kitchen. No knife or chopping board? But extremely helpful and friendly staff.

I do not know what you saw ...... in my kitchen there is the cutting board, that the spoons! It 'a good idea to ask if you need something before you say it does not work or that there is not! From anywhere in the world and at any occasion .....
