With an excellent location, near the station about 10 min by foot, the hostel has luggage room and the beds are nice. If you want to enjoy Florence all day long and rest by night this is a good place to stay because is near the city center too.

Everything was excellent except for the wifi. It was slow af. The 22 people dorm was massive. Nothing bad about it really but maybe not for those who don't want to be in a room with so many people. There was no sockets to charge your stuff at the beds, that was a little inconvenient. You had to go to the common room to charge. But everything else was good.
Room itself not too bad and location reasonably central, but one power point for a dorm of six beds just doesn't work! Also bathrooms and showers not brilliantly clean, but ok for just a night if you don't need to charge anything...
It's really annoying when there's only a plug for the whole room, and you have to fight people to charge your phone. And there where no stairs to get to the upper bed, I had to pull a plastic bench that was used as side table to get to my bed. It was really hot but we could let the windows open because of the net to prevent mosquitoes. The staff is really helpful and nice
Cool hostel in a good location with good facilities and the receptionist was superfriendly and helpful.
Pretty decent hostel for the money you pay. The place is huge so it's a little maze-like to navigate initially and bathrooms can sometimes be a little far away from your room. Small kitchen considering number of hostel guests. Very inconvenient lock out from 10am - 2pm for cleaning.
Over all is great! Walkable distance to the old city centre n attractions, function kitchen, a supermarket next to, wifi work in the room, that is good enough!
None of our power points worked in our 8 bedroom dorm which was rather frustrating. No air con made warm night a little hard to handle. Wifi is temperamental. Staff are really friendly and helpful. Would look for another hostel if I visited Florence again.
What kind of hostel has a 3am lock out? You pay for a bed and can't even use it as they lock the doors at 3am.

We really enjoyed our stay at the hostel because it had such a great location. The facilities were good and offered everything we needed. However, our 16-bed dorm was very dark and the bunk beds were very high and did not feel very secure. For such a large hostel, we also found the outdoor terrace to be very small, with only space for around 8 people.
