Great Hostel. Good to have a kitchen after traveling around for a while. Have bicycles that you can hire !!
Hostel was clean and very packed most of the time.
We spent one night here in the 20 bed dorm. There were 2 fans and all the windows were open, so the heat wasn't really an issue. There is a grocery store right next door and cooking facilities with ample dining space. Free wifi and printing for 20c per page was great. No plugs in the room but plenty in the common room. Great for a one or two night stop over.
Love the big common room with working Wi-Fi. However, the cleaning ladies once denied me my shower (I had been ill, so I wanted to take a shower after noon which was apparently unacceptable). The hostel is located next to a good supermarket and the washing machine does a better job than mine at home... At night you'll be sung to sleep as there are opera performances next door.
I had a little trouble finding the place originally. Nice staff and a decent atmosphere. I would probably stay again
This hostel is great if you don't mind dark and smelly rooms, a kitchen so dirty you can't touch anything, and being kicked out for four hours of the day, oh, and don't forget the curfew!
Lockers may not really work, especially with an average-sized lock.
It was quite good, in the summer is a bit hot in rooms. It is a bit inconvenient that the hostel is closed from 3 to 6 am. The kitchen and the bathrooms are OK. There isa good supermarket next door.
A nice place to relax after a long journey.
Great hostel, excellent staff, comfortable beds, rooms with air con, decent bathrooms. Cheap food options and markets close by. Owner provides free wine and snacks which was amazing, had a blast with the other travellers!
big hostel, kept clean but the rooms were pretty hot. plenty of showers so never had to wait. good kitchen for cooking and dining area. didn't feel very much atmosphere myself for meeting people. laundry facilities were handy, and not too expensive. location was decent, a bit of a walk to everything. would stay again here.
Big hostel located across the river from the centre of florence. Comfortable and clean air conditioned dorms. Excellent facilities: kitchen, coffee machine, dining area, wifi, terrace, tv, bike rental, free city map. This hostel is not just a place to stay the night, the hostel is designed for the budget traveller and backpacker and the staff will give you the info to make the most your time in Florence. Good price also for a tourist city Florence in the high season.
Friendly staff, supermarket next door, nice place to hang out at night around the corner. Rooms were hot though, but it has everything you need:) definitly recommend it!
Very good location, there is a supermarket just next door. Not so good was that it was extreamly hot in the room and with two fans you were still sweating a lot and in my room there was only one plug which was used for the fan. But all in all a good experience. Would recommend it!
It is really dirty bathroom and the room for 6 really like prison and very hot. I won't back there again.
Ok hostel, wouldn't stay for too long. Very nice and friendly staff that can tell you anything about Firenze. Also you can book day excursions through them along with other various activities. Some downfalls: lockout of room between 11am-2pm for cleaning, hot water only runs in the showers at arranged times of day, has no air conditioning, no soap in the bathrooms and showers were gross. Best things about this hostel are the staff and from the church next door you can hear the opera shows.
The hostel is in a great location. It has a super market next door and you can cook in the kitchen. I enjoyed my stay here. The hostel has friendly vibes because of the terrace and common room. The staff were helpful, but not chatty. The one down side is that there is no aircon so the rooms are BAKING in the height of summer.
The hostel was really hot since there is no AC. The only complaint is that a homeless man came is the kitchen and was bothering people. The rooms were secure though.
