This hostel on paper looks great. The location is truly fantastic. That being said, the sleep quality was horrible. It was sweltering hot, and the hostel cut the power to the lights and fan at night so we basically were sleeping in 40 degree weather with no break. It was basically a hot box with no respite. I sleep through anything, but it was the worst sleep of my life. If you have the choice, sleep on the bottom bunk because it's slightly cooler. The rest was great though.

This hostel was good for the amount that you pay. There were plenty of toilets/showers. The bad thing about it was that there is no aircon so the rooms were literally like a sauna, made it incredibly hard to sleep and the power points were all grouped together in the middle of the room so if you are worried about someone taking your phone then you can't leave it on charge over night. Wifi was always cutting out and just not connecting.

This hostel is great but one of their cons is definitely the lack of air con in the 22-bed rooms. Met a great group of people and it made all the difference. Close enough to walk everywhere. Recommend!

The hostel was in a good location, but it was very hot inside the sleeping quarters and bathrooms.

The hostel has everything you need - a good kitchen, common area, good location. The only issue I had was the second storey was SWELTERING and there's no air conditioning up there.. try get a room on the first floor!

The rooms were clean and bunk beds quite comfy and the location was excellent being close to both the town, train station and the river! Facilities to wash/dry clothes are available and easy to use and the showers we're also good! A great place to stay in Florence!

Only complaint about this hostel was the curfew. We were not informed during check-in,but the hostel locks you out from 3-6am and 10am-2pm. However the staff is very accomadating and let us a couple of times and even late after partying one night(it is Florence)The night staff is the best! Shout out to Ali! Great hostel to stay and meet other travelers in Florence

Really great hostel in an amazing city. Massive so you're bound to meet some interesting other travellers and in a really good location within walkable distance of everything.

The location was the selling point for me - very close to bars and restaurants; also walking distance to museums and other attractions. The wi-fi was extremely spotty. No AC in hostel rooms - fans only.

Really good security, it was in a good location, not a far walk from the train station or there's also lots of buses. Would definitely stay there again.

They gave me lots of information. easy to buy water or breads in supermarket (just 5 seconds from this hostel.!!) it was very nice to experience calm and peaceful Florence. i watched very normal life in Florence people.

Right by the metro station Victoria (which you can reach directly from the airport by taking the blue line to Monasteraki and switching to the green line to Victoria--50 minutes, €1.20). Room had A/C, was clean. No shower curtain in the bathroom, but it's easy enough to manage. It was an older building. The bar was never open, and was more like a counter with a few drinks behind it.


80%

It was clean but they close from 10AM - 2 to clean and that's frustrating. Also you can't get in after 2 AM.


80%

Wifi rarely worked, and the bathrooms weren't that great, but it was a fantastic location right in the city centre basically.

Despite a small issue with the booking they upgraded us and the whole hostel was well run, friendly, felt safe and had a decent vibe.
