For me an excellent location and cleaniless are the most important. Although there was a small common room, it wasnt really used as a social setting whilst I was there, but at least there is a common room. The Moslem guy at reception was particularly kind and friendly to me and other residents. I was lucky to be in a shared dorm with 3 friendly American graduates so they proved to be compatible as well.
First, when i arrived theysent me another hostel. I had booked 4bed dorm but I stayed in a 6 bed room. There was no lock. The bathroom door was broke down. The other day they sent me back the orijinal hostel. If I did not ask they will not let me know. It is irresponsible . And so dissapointing not enough value for money.
A perfect place to sleep if you want to explore Florence during the day! Staff was super friendly.

This review is about Hotel Toscana, as I was moved there afterwards (the owner owns both Ottaviani and Toscana). They were sort of organised, though very very helpful. For some reason breakfast wasn't available on a couple of mornings... but when it was it was good value. The bathroom in the shared room had a dodgy door (which I fixed with tape, as best as I could), and it wasn't actually the staff's fault... the owner was informed but had yet to organise repairs. Better than most local hostels
A very centrally located hotel with good facilities and is very clean. Will definately recommend this place.
Check in took 45 mins after I was told to go back and forth between properties. Also one of the staff members tried to claim the city tax was higher then it actually was. The rooms were not clean, and the member of staff who I found very rude (and increased the city tax) was sleeping in my same room. I did not sleep because I felt unsafe around him. Kitchen facilities was a sink and fridge. Bathrooms strongly smelt like urine. Could not take shower, as too filthy.
Boring and basic hostel. The facilities were fine and it's very close to the train station but it's really just a bed and shower. No activaties or social engagement. Stay if you're looking for a quiet place close to the train station.
This is a huge hostel spread over many buildings in the area. Going by price and location, this hostel is great value for money!! The main problem with our stay was with the place we were staying in... their was a man running this building and he was the reason we hated our stay! He was extremely rude and was constantly sweating... to make things worse, as a member of staff he was sleeping in the dorm with hostel guests! Turned lights on at 5am, insisted on windows etc being open! Bad stay!!
