Clean and nice room, nice staff (gave us a lot of advice on what to see in the town). The location is perfect, as we're two-minutes away (on foot) from the Dome. We recommend!


Leonarde house maybe around the average but the boss of Leonardo is a perfect guy. I like him too much :D

The staff was super helpful and cheery and the location is around 10 mins away from the duomo. what i did not like about my stay was that the room was not nice to stay in : the window did not close properly, the atmosphere was very dull and it looked very old with a stale smell. the first night we had no hot water to shower but the next day the problem was solved.


Very central (once you've found it). All very clean too, and Leonardo was very friendly and helpful. There are not really any communal areas if you're looking for that kind of thing, and facilities are a bit limited if you want to cook your own meals, plus shared bathrooms. However, this is a good place to stay, I'd visit again


Beds were not comfortable at all. The springs could be felt very easily through the mattress.

Really great location, really great and accommodating proprietor. Couldn't have asked for much better!


Leonardo was very hospitable and helpful. We absolutely loved the location of this hostel and would definitely stay here again!


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!!!
