At my arrival nobody was waiting for me, then the guy couldn't find a pair of key to give me. their is no locker in the room. the kitchen was really dirty and you can see that nobody cleaned it with a mop or vaccum since ages. the bathroom is dump all the time and are not clean aswell, and 2 showers for 20 peoples is quite short.
The guy who runs the hostel is super friendly and really nice. The showers are grubbby. Unfortunately, I had a problem on my first night with bed bugs and I couldn't find him on the other nights to be able address the situation. Although it's not his fault, bed bugs are brought in by other guests, I felt that if he was there after the first night and I was able to tell him, I would have had a more positive stay. I ended up spending 30EU on cream as I am allergic. Close to the train station.
Good location and the owner is very friendly.
The staff is very cool, helpful and friendly. A small but lovely hostel. :)
Wonderful, small hostel! Perfect for backpackers and people on the budget. You can't wish for better location

Was a very snug hostel, like a big share house. Lots of leftover things from past guests, like toothbrushes, clothes etc. Staff were barely there, when I checked in I wasn't given a key to get in. Only two bathrooms for 16 or so guests, and no common area except teeny kitchen. A very casual hostel, but in a great location and clean sheets.
The hostel was great for what it's worth. However there weren't any lockers to put your bags in and the entire hostel was very tiny. Though it was very close to everything and the staff was nice, so overall it was a great hostel.
The access from rail station and sightseeing spot is good!
This hostle is ok if you just want a bed but you won't be hanging out enjoying it. It is in an ok location but it is hard to find and poorly labled (handwritten signs). There are 8 beds jammed in a small room so no room to hang out and no common area. One communal bathroom area with a bathtub with a shower or a shower in one of the stalls with a toilet. The bunkbeds are mediocre at best. Guy seemed nice enough but was usually gone. Gave us keys that didn't work as well.
Do not stay at this hostel if you can help it! Hardly one word of the description is true… This place hardly feels like a hostel, more like a shady 2-room apartment with an overflow of people stuffed into it. THERE IS NO KITCHEN and no reception.You have to pay in cash and in the end we just left our keys on the counter because there was no on there to check us out. Also, no A/C. I left the window open and got eaten alive by mosquitos. The place is dirty, cramped and generally unpleasant.
Good place to meet other people. Quite a cramped dorm with a lively young group of people staying.
This is a very good hostel, good location and very clean. The kitchen could be better, but you have a microwave and a fridge. A very important detail that they don't say in the web page is that the hostel is in a second floor and there is not elevator, a detail that is important for people who has reduced motility.
It's a nice place! The service is very good for the price that you pay. The stuff is very friendly. I do have to mention though that sometimes they were a bit difficult to reach (when arriving or trying to check out), it would be great to leave a contact number really visible somewhere. Overall I would recommend this place! :)
very good location and the best staff thank you boys
Great hostel, great vibes, perfect location, stuff willing to help. Just take air plugs because the street is sometimes noisy.
A nice hostel with big rooms and very friendly staff. The location in the city center is perfect, just right next to the central station. Missing the ability to cook food.
Great staff! They're really friendly and welcoming. On our last night, one of the workers stayed past his shift and bought wine for us to drink. Shared stories with us and made us regret leaving Florence and the hostel so soon. It's walking distance from everything since Florence is so walkable. It's by the Duomo so it's easy to navigate back to the hostel at night, you just look for the Duomo. Also located right by the train station. Wifi is a little spotty in the rooms.
Firstly the guy forgot that i was coming. I'd already told them i would be there at midnight but there was no one and had no phone to contact them. A nice gelato lady helped me and the person came at 1am.So better not to go after 18h. After that it was smooth. The bathrooms were shared and lockers were small and internet not so good. At night you'll get lots of noise from the streets below. So you cannot sleep very well.
Old furniture the kitchen isn't a kitchen You can't cook there!!! The kitchen looks different like the pictures. No air conditioning, its pretty hot and noisy if you sleep with open windows. But you have to sleep with them because of the heat. I think it's to expensive for the quality. One of the stuff was friendly and talks with the guests in the kitchen...but only one. A saw a lot of hostels but this was the worst..
Cool spot. Good location. Ronaldo is a chill guy. Definitely stay here.
