The room looked like a slum, no air-con may be expected with such budget price hostel but one old fan for the whole room? Really? We had to wait for hours for somebody to appear at reception upon arrival.
The only unsafe hostel experience I've ever had! Rented room with 3 beds, but for only two people. Woke up in the middle of the night to find the other bed filled and assumed they had rented my unused bed. Went down in the morning to get a refund for that bed and the one dazed staff member was incredulous because they didn't rent the bed. It was actually a hobo that had snuck into the hostel! Nothing was stolen but could have ended much worse than it did. Install auto lock/close doors!
The location is absolutely spot on, so close to the duomo and some of the other sights and sounds of Florence, the staff are amicable but not always there, every day there would be at least one group of people who had to wait for quite some time. they desperately need more bathrooms, there were only two sets, and waiting for a shower would take forever. It's not the best place to be in the world but if you're only staying for a short time then it would be bearable.
Good location, nice staff, no lockers, WiFi didn't work most of the time, small filigree beds
I don´t think it was Yuri´s fault, but we were told that all bars have happy hour from 6:30 to 8:30 to pay for the drink and have like buffet food for free... so we went to the bar at the corner of the hostel, we ate and drank, and when the check came the charged us everything! (so was a lot of money)... so yes, maybe next time would be good to mention the specific names of those which have that happy hour... A part from that, all-right

Great hostel. People were friendly and it was right in the middle of attractions. Also close to the train station. Would definitely stay here again.
I have stayed 3 hostels in Florence and I can say that it's a nice hostel, a recommendable one with a combination of good prices and great location. The staff is helpful and friendly. Also the hostel is clean. The only disadvantage is that they only have 2 bathrooms. So you may need to wait for use.
