Very well located, but the street is super noisy and busy. Good for young people on the go!


This is a super friendly place, it's small but big enough for the number of guests. There is free breakfast in the morning and check-in time is very flexible which is nice, as I arrived about 10 in the morning and could take a shower and nap straight away. The owners are super friendly and even make an effort to kern your name and socialise which is refreshing! Recommend for a tight budget, great value!


Not enough bathrooms and showers, and no common room. Met some great people here and rolando is very nice. There's no a/c on the top floor of a busy street so sleeping was tough at times. The location is the best part of this place


The hostel is very well located. Close to one of the train stations, easy access by bus and in a walking distance to the Florence sights. The staff is very helpfull and kind. I stayed in a four-bedroom and the room is OK, in average of most of the hostels offers. The hostel is very small and don't have like a liveroom or other place to interact but that wasn't a problem for us once we stayed the whole day out. The only "problem" was the bathroom, just one for everybody: only two showers.

Rolando was really nice, the place had the best location, three mins walk from the main station, supermarket and good bar and restaurant right on the street. We didn't regret choosing this hostel, it was a nice experience!


Pretty good value for money, staff nice and brilliant location right by the Duomo. On the other hand, the hostel was pretty noisy with the landlord playing some kind of Dominican house music from about 7:00 in the morning right outside our room and there were only 2 showers and 2 toilets between 20-odd guests.


Excellent location within the city and very close to the duomo however it is on a busy road that means it's very noisy at night. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our main issue was with the shower facilities as one of them didn't lock properly which is quite concerning.


We booked 4 bed private room but when we arrived they said that 'at the same time somebody booked that room so you have to stay in 8 bed dorm but i will make a discount' so we have to accept it and we accepted it. first night night we stay in dorm and our second and third day we stayed in 4 bed private room. but it was really messed up, dirty and smells bad. because there was a door in the room that closed. it was toilet before.smells comes from that door and all room was like a toilet.

but you was for man and only you say tha this door is another room but i feel in this day the same of you but only in your room now the room is ready like before ciao good vacation


Not really a "hostel". Just 3 rooms with beds. Located right next to the train station which is nice for day trips to Siena and Pisa. 10-15 minute walk to all the big a attractions which is not bad at all. The street was having construction so super loud starting at 8am and there's a bar downstairs so it can get pretty noisy(esp. World Cup) Owner was very nice! Made coffee for you in the morning! Front door was left open a lot which I didn't like. Showers were hot with good pressure.


Excellent location. The guy is super nice but doesn't speak English that that well. Breakfast is included and great! It's not the cleanest but it's manageable, and the biggest down side I'd say is that there's no hot water in the showers and there's no air conditioning (lots of fans though)


Amazing hostel! The hostel workers are so friendly and helpful. Ideal location close to the cathedral and the museum that holds the David statue. An amazing atmosphere. The bathrooms are great, all new facilities. About a 25 minute walk from the train station but easy enough to get to. The street layout is a bit confusing so just be vigilant when your looking for the hostel.


Beautiful and friendly place! Though, it was expensive for the service we had; the oven was not fonctionnal, so impossible to cook our own food. Excepting that, nice bed, pretty clean. Missing a commun space though; make it hard to meet people without it.

Bathroom is pretty small for the amount of people staying there.


It was quite hard to found this hostel... location is excellent anyway ^^


First of all it s an apartment with three rooms. Place quite dirty, staff Made of weird people, we had a private room but often people try to get inside. Last night some drunk girl start ringing the bell for 10 times in the middle of the night and nobody was taking care of it. Really expensive for the service you get, but than it's Florence itself to be expensive so...

Kitchen doesn't work and one of the showers is a bathtub located between the other shower and a toilet, so unless you lock the whole room, you would shower with people coming in and out of the bathroom. I tried to extend my stay, one of the staff members said it was OK, and the next morning I had to leave cause there wasn't any room available.


One of the best hostels I ever stayed! Uno de los mejores hostales en que he estado! The location is perfect! The owner is awesome, the city is beautiful and for that price!!! Seriously? I recommend this hostel to all backpackers! Rolando es super amable!


Rolando is just the best host ever.He helped me a lot in the trouble.
