The hostel is located at the other side of the river, along with a very decent neighborhood. The building itself is interesting and spacious however the atmosphere is not very vibrant. Everybody seems doing their own business even there is a huge common room. It's a good hostel if you're looking for something quiet.
Friendly staff, perfect location (walking distance to every interesting place!) and a nice kitchen well equiped. Lockers for use with own padlock are in the room. Just my mattress was very soft and some of the showers didn't have a lock. I would definitely stay there again :)
Cheaper hostel for Florence but it was just dead. Nowhere to hang out and only one toilet block for the entire building. Wouldn't stay here again.
There was no atmosphere, only three cook tops were going so we had a bit of a cue when it was dinner time, the guy at the desk didn't seem keen to be there, but there was another guy who was more helpful. It definitely wasn't the worst hostel but it's definitely a quiet one
Weird room design, male toilette is in front of a female dorm (16 beds !!!). not so clean, even though they spend hours everyday to clean rooms. lots of mosquitos as a bonus. But overall i like this place as it's well located, with a kitchen (it's rare in italy)
