Good hostel. Great staff! A lot of young people! Breakfast included and delicious! However the location was far from all site seeing, even though florence is a pretty small city! The reception is 24/7 which was great. But the keys to my room worked for every single room in the hostel. I was able to open up every room on my floor, which is super unsafe. Especially because their are no safes in the room.

Awesome hostel! It's a bit hard to find if you arrive at night but otherwise it was in a decent location that's easy enough to walk to/from. The hostel itself is great and the staff are amazing!! They'll do anything to help, just ask. The rooms were fine, although they could have used a few more outlets. Breakfast was delicious - so many options! Would definitely stay here again!


really good hostel with AMAZING breakfasts. the location is a bit of a walk from the main sights but I found it nice to walk back and not be surrounds by loads of other people/tourists. had books to read, wifi worked good for me, and like I said the breakfasts were soo good compared to other hostels.


This hostel was great! The staff were all very nice and helpful! Breakfast was really good. I would definitely stay here again!


The hostel was really nice. I would definitely recommend it. The location is really good, just 20min walking from the train station. The staff is great!!!

Let me start by saying there is one main reason why this hostel gets rated so highly. The food. The free breakfast was one of the best I ever had and free snacks available throughout the day. + Food + Staff - Bunk beds are terrible. They shake with the slightest movement. - WiFi was terrible!! Unusable! - Lockers only accept really small locks. They use little i-bolts that can easily be broken. - Rooms all use same skeleton key. - Shower curtain was broken and water wouldn't drain.


The hostel is really close to San Marcos square and 15 min walking to Duome and the center area area. The staff is really helpful and kind. The breakfast the best, many things to choose and they leave the left-over to enjoy as snacks. There are bathrooms out of the rooms in case of need. The outside rooms could be quite noisy, so just in case bring some earplugs with you.
