The best part about this hostel was its location. Right next to the duomo and near all the cool bars and everything you would want to see in Florence. The hostel itself was nothing too special. There were only 3 bathrooms and 2 showers for every guest (about 30 beds) and the rooms were not super private or secluded. It is a luck of the draw whether or not you get a good room that isn't in the middle of anything. Good vibes at the hostel and decently clean. Would only recommend to rugged traveler
Great location, the man that checked us in quite late at night was super friendly and circled all the good things to do on a map for us. Bathrooms were clean and rooms were big and spacious. Be aware they kick you out between 12-3 to clean the rooms. Not a very big place, so hard to meet people but overall I would recommend.
安くて中心地に近く、イタリアのホステルでは珍しくキッチンが充実している。醤油が備えてあったのは嬉しかった。シャワーがバスタブ付きなのもグッド。 スタッフはフレンドリーだし、小さいホステルなので他の宿泊者ともコミュニケーションが取りやすい。 しかし南京虫がいるのでおすすめ出来るかはビミョー。背中を刺されました。 南京虫さえいなければ何泊でもしたかったです。
Like you, we read the reviews about bedbugs and because they weren't dated super recently, assumed the hostel had fixed the problem. Not true. When we got there to check in, no one was actually there. Instead we got a slimy Italian man urging us to stay while he contacted his friend to come over from another hostel he was running. We waited for around 15 minutes, but then a fellow traveler showed us his arms and legs covered in bites, and warned us to get away while we had only lost our deposit.
Excellent location, but dont expect an actual hostel. Its more like an apartment being used as hostel. Things are old and some beds are broken. If you wanna save money and be in the city centre, thats your call. If you have money and want comfort, go somewhere else. The guy in the reception is really helpful and took his time showing all there was to do in the map, cheap places, attractions, really nice of him.
I'm not sure if it was mosquitoes or bedbugs but I stayed here 6 nights and now (the next day after leaving) I am covered in spots and am very itchy/uncomfortable. If you're good at checking for bedbugs and have mosquito repellent, this hostel was great otherwise. The location was perfect!! I was able to see and do everything (a long list) in my time there. Also, the staff (Yuri, especially) was very helpful. He went above and beyond his call of duty and made my stay there. Recommend? Not sure.
Excellent location. We were satisfied but the smell of mattress will stay in our memory for many years... Someone more sensible could have serious difficulties standing it.
Overall, just fine for the price; nothing spectacular though. Would have been nice if there had been 24-hour check-in though (which seems to be standard at most hostels).

Great Location.Even though you have to go up and down the building. It was kind of annoying there is just two bath room but other than that there was good kitchen, good staff. It was definetely worth staying here. Thanks a lot

The true hostel experience. While the workers were nice and meant well, the hostel is definitely rough around the edges. The kitchen is nice, but the bathroom situation (2 bathrooms for the 40 or so people there) is not desirable. Most of the rooms lack doors, so you have to walk through rooms where people are sleeping to get to the bathrooms too. Also the place just looks like a lot of the stuff is really old (like the beds). Good price, great people, just the facilities need a major facelift.
The good: location, chicken (you feel at home) and atmosphere!! Met a lot of people to go out with. The bad: WiFi don't work, is on the 5th floor with NO ELEVATOR!!!! The bunk beds don't have stairs so it can be difficult to get to your bed and it can be very noisy at night
This is a very central hostel very near to the duomo it is in the 3 floor with no elevator. There were only 2 bathrooms and with the two dorms that can have about 12 persons... they should have more bathrooms. the kitchen was nice and it was a nice meeting place . The most negative point about this hotel was the fact that the bed were to soft for me, the rooms where very hot with no air conditioner or fans and we slept with the windows open, and firenze has a lot of mosquitos that bite.
역에서는 시간이조금 걸리지만 두오모에서 무척가깝습니다. 주인아저씨가 체크인할때 피렌체 관련정도보 주고, 방도 깨끗하네요. 그리고 믹스도미토리 이지만 방을줄때 일행이아니면 거의 남녀 잘 나눠서 방을 배정해줍니다. 주방사용가능합니다. 저렴하고 좋은숙소 이용한것 같아서 기분이 좋네요. 다만 가끔 문을 열수없는 열쇠가 있으니 꼭 확인하세요.
Lousy and unhelpful staff. . Cheap in city but definately not worth to go!!! Trust me, it'll ruin your trip. And this is the worst hostel i ever stayed. Bad security, doors often no locked and there,re no locker. and they are all so not systematic. Run by all guyss, dont go.
Reception closes at 10pm! Becareful 'cause we arrived 30 minutes late and they didn't want to do the check in for us so we had to sleep in another hostel and we had to pay even if we were not there. Staff is not very friendly and we found bed bugs. Only the location is good, in he city centre, close to the Duomo.
The stay at Maison was great because I met wonderful people and we often stayed late in the kitchen to talk about everything and have some drinks. This hostel was the best I had regarding the ambiance ! However, sleeping in a room with 8 people was difficult as the beds made some noise and were not so confy... still if you re not afraid of short nights, I recommend it !
Greeted by a smiley face & a nice welcome, given a tour of the hostel, clean bedding, a city map complete with the important sites to see while in Florence. Stayed here for a week and had a fab time. Excellent location 2min walk from the Duomo, great kitchen complete with free spices and oils to use. Very clean and tidy hostel. Even has a balcony too! The only down side was there's no internet just Wi-Fi &the hostel is a tunnel so there's no doors, can be abit noisy at times, but still 10/10 :)
The hostel doesn't provide locker, so it could be unsafe. There was this one guy who didn't check in when he arrived (the staff wasn't in); he just came in, picked a bed himself and slept for one night. It has insufficient bathroom too, people always have to wait to use a bathroom. But it has a well equipped and big kitchen; that helps to save up money if you cook.
