We had a good night at Franz house. Nice location in the centre at one of the bridges, auhentic building en nice entry. The rooms where clean en well furnitured. The staff was kind as we could leave our luggage here before check-in and after check-out. Would come back here on my future visist of Firenze.

I stayed in a standard double bed private with shared bathroom, my experience in general was good, the hostel was clean and the location is good, the area has a good atmosphere at night. We met Giovanni (the receptionist) and he looked reserved and quiet but he was helpful, just one advice, be careful with the check-out time if you're planning to pay at that moment because Giovanni is not there the 24hrs. and you have to pay him in cash.
great we could get a document printed.
Great location close to center of Florence and near the river-- easy to walk to everything you would want to see. We were greeted rather gruffly by Giovanni because our room wasn't cleaned, but we were able to leave our bags in the hallway and they were moved into our room once it was cleaned. Bathrooms were shared by several rooms but were always very clean whenever we used them. We had a "breakfast" of tiny crackers and some jam with a juice box provided daily.
The room we stayed in was beautiful and very Italian which was a nice touch. It was in a great location that was just a walk away from the majority of the sights and museums in Florence. The host was great and told us about the best trips, restaurants and ice cream parlours in Florence and indicated them all on a map for us. We paid for the cooked breakfast one morning and it was delicious!! No complaints whatsoever!!
Upon arrival, Giovanni provided us with a map of Florence as well as recommendations on the best places to see and eat in the city. Definitely follow his advice! Our room was very nice and clean. We shared a bathroom with two other rooms. It's in a great location, just steps away from the river! It is, however, on a very busy street, so bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper.
Giovanni was so great, he spent a lot of time going over some possible plans for a daytrip outside the city. He answered all of our questions and was very kind. The B&B itself is nice. The LIGHT breakfast is VERY light, just be aware ;) We didn't have the extra breakfast. The location was great. There is some street noise so bring ear plugs if that bothers you.
I absolutely loved it here. The man who owns it is super sweet and gave us great recommendations. He was like our own personal tour guide with all his facts. I would definitely stay here again!
