This is a great hostel in a great place. The lady who runs it is exceptionally kind and helpful. Comfortable beds and individual lockers...I'd stay here again.
This was my first hostel and the woman who runs it was very friendly. Everything clean and beds comfy but wifi spotty in common area. Probably wouldn't stay here again.
This hostel is quite nice, its location is the best part, pretty close of everything in the center area by walking distance.
No complaints. A/C worked. WIFI worked. What else do we need as travelers??? Staff was helpful as well. A+
I stayed in emerald plaza I like this place it has that small hostel vibe.. It's good for solo travellers because you will meet plenty of people just chilling out on the balcony Rooms are huge. Bathrooms are the cleanest you will find. Staff are friendly and helpful The only negative for me was that the air con is set to 25 from the office and it would be cooler with the window open Also the lockout for cleaning is a bit of a pain if you've had a big night but they are fairly relaxed with it
Expensive but great location. Hostel was pretty much empty due to closing so atmosphere was awful. Good kitchen facilities, nice beds and bedding. AC is controlled by staff and is only turned on at request and they turn it off when they feel like it which isn't ideal during the real hot weather. WIFI is fine. Some staff were rude but some were great!! I'd go elsewhere if I was in Florence again.
Great location! Close to station, restaurants, shopping and laundry. Rooms varied, some are better than others. I got one of the not so good rooms, but it was still ok. Bunk beds were really squeeky though, if you're a light sleeper you have been warned :) Place is clean and spotless! The lady (we called her Mama) makes you coffee and toast in the morning and is overall the best part of this place! The lockout between 11am-2pm is kinda annoying, but everyone is out by then anyways.

Lovely cheap and sociable hostel. Very clean shared bathrooms. Lock out time for dorms is a bit annoying. Nice to have an outside common area to eat / chill. Location is ok, in the back streets but fine because florence is so small easy to walk everywhere still. Would recommend and stay again!
Only stayed 1 night here but had a single bed room with an ensuite which was fantastic. The breakfast in the morning was nice whilst simple. Toast, jams/Nutella, biscuits and tea or coffee. I was appreciative that the morning staff member allowed me to come back to use the common area on the day of my departure. However the male receptionist in the afternoon was quite rude when he realised what I was doing. Even though I had permission. Located close to the train station & many attractions
Ok hostel, great location. The wifi signal was not very good in my room, otherwise everything was ok.
Once you fine the hostel, it wasn't very obvious from the street, the hostel was lovely. It was really clean and comfortable. The location is great. The staff were helpfull, the lovely Italian mama who was there to serve breakfast in the morning was beyond amazing she treated us all like her own children giving us kisses as we said goodbye. :)
The location is brilliant - very close to the station and main sites. Free breakfast was: toast, biscotti, coffee; the lady who made it was lovely - she wouldn't let you lift a finger to help and had learnt my name. The map is also really good as the main sites are enlarged. Bathrooms were good and didn't really have to wait for one. WiFi is patchy and doesn't reach some rooms but was bearable. Not all rooms have aircon but they have fans which I thought was fine.

Great location near SMN station and the duomo, however not many signs outside the hostel so look carefully as you walk down the road. The place is clean and the rooms are nice. lockers are included as well. staff are lovely, especially the woman who made us breakfast who was great! really enjoyed the stay.
The lady who made us breakfast and coffee in the morning was lovely, but the young boy who checked us in was not friendly, welcoming or helpful. Very clean rooms with everything you need and great air con.
The only thing that made my stay here bearable was the other nice guests. The staff are terrible, rude and are very reluctant to help you in any way. The room I stayed in was right next to an extremely loud street all night long. The only room that was and also the only room that had no aircon in the hottest section of the building. All the other rooms had aircon and were already cool because of their position inside the complex and not noisy. Only stay here for the location. Terrible hostel.

Lucky to be upgraded from dorm to a private room for no charge. Shared bathrooms clean. Breakfast of toast and tea adequate. Lovely and helpful staff. AC was average especially during the heatwave we had last week at 35-40degree days! Really good location nearby the Santa Maria Novella station, a a short walk to Central Markets and Duomo. Highly recommend climbing the Duomo and going up to Piazzale Michelangelo for great views over Florence! Would stay here again. :)
Location is good, bathroom is very clean, and a lady there makes good breakfast, people even don't need to stand up to get their coffee, but there's NO AIR CON in the dorm I stayed, just a small ventilator for 5 people
A group of us were hanging out in the courtyard where the first night the staff actually joined us and the second night, different staff, told us we couldn't have more than 4 drinks and had to leave by 11pm. This was a little strange. I also didn't like that I had to pay for luggage storage. Check-in was very quick and the rooms and bathrooms were very clean and tidy.
Clean rooms and showers, not the most comfortable best i have slept in though
The only bad point is that they have no air con on the room, so it was like beeing in an oven, even though there was a ventilador, but certainly not enough for the italy summer. Beside that, excellent value for money.
