Leonardo's house was very clean and comfortable. There was no social atmosphere at all though with no common area, and there were no kitchen facilities (or even bowls, cups, cutlery etc.) except a tiny fridge and microwave. Location was good.


Fantastic location close to santa matia novella station and the duomo, vety central! Great guy Leonardo, was very helpful. I liked the fact that therr was a vending machine for snacks and drinks! Always handy. We had a private room with shared bathroom, it was really nice... Bathroom may have needed to be cleaned more ( thas the inly comment) noy that it was bad Totally recommend this place


Lovely staff, had no kitchen but did have a fridge and a kettle so could get by with food. Overall a fantastic experience. Would recommend.


Leonardo house is a little old but this can be overlooked because it is in a fantastic location, clean and Leonardo himself is welcoming and very helpful.


Staff (Leonardo)- lovely


The young gentleman at the desk was lovely and very helpful. The room though, was very dirty, The sheets were clean, and there were no bugs, but the overall condition of the room was totally unacceptable. It needs paint, a light, and wallpaper. I would not recommend this location.

Great place to stay, the room was very spacious. Host was extremely friendly and helpful. He provided a map and let us know all the tourist places to visit. Helped us with how to get to Pisa. Highly recommended.


Great place to stay in Florence. Just a few minutes from the train station and the Duomo. Really helpful and friendly owner that looks after the place well, waited for us to check in after several train delays. Communal fridge was helpful and a good wi-fi connection too. Would stay again.


Personal and italian charming caretakeing by Leonardo. Easy going stay. Best made of location.

It's very near the train station. The host is very helpful, recommending us good places to visit as well as nice restaurants to eat. We spent another night in Florence but not in Leonardo yet the host was very kind to take care of our luggage until 16:00. The bathroom is spacious though there was a little bit flooding in the shower room but no big deal. Free wifi with extremely long passwords though lol All in all it's a nice place to stay.


Super cool Leonardo!!!


Loved our time here. Florence is a beautiful city and the hospitality of Leonardo only enhanced our time here. We were helped with maps, directions and the location was close enough to pop back whenever we needed to! Would definitely recommend! Rooms were clean and looked after also!


Very kind staff and very good location, but one shower is a bit broken...


My daughter and I loved staying at Leonardo House. i must admit I was a bit reticent about the shared bathroom, but they were clean all the time, and as there were not many guests they were available when you needed to use them. The room was functional, and it was nice to have use of a kettle and a microwave. The place is really functional, central and clean, easy to get around Florence and to the Station and good restaurants close by.


Close to the train station as well as many sights. When we checked-in the staff were super helpful and marked on a map where many sights are located. Bathroom was not the cleanest.


Very warm and welcoming place!


We arrived outside the check in time, but we sent an early email to Leonardo and he was quick to reply and tell us he would wait for us. He was kind and patient with us, gave us traveling advice, and a warm welcome. We got a private room, which was neat, very spacious and clean. The location is perfect, near the train station and easy walk to attractions. This hostel is not a place to meet people, but I'd definitely stay here again.


Clean, great location and very welcoming. Was nice and quiet which suited us perfectly.


Wonderful little hostel in Florence. We had a private room and it was spacious and clean with air con. Only downside to the hostel was the lack of a common space, however this didn't bother us at all. Leonardo himself is friendly and helpful! Would definitely recommend and stay there again.


We loved our stay here! Leonardo was one of the nicest people we met on our trip, extremely polite and eager to make us feel welcome. The location is good, very close to SMN but an easy walk to everything of interest. The room was comfortable and had a shared patio, which was lovely. No private bathrooms available, but the shared ones were clean and there was never a wait to use them. Definitely recommend.
