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.


Very nice hostel. Have a kicthen, location is vey good.


I love staying in the kitchen and enjoyed using wifi as less people than some popular big hostel.


It is just located on the main street pretty close to the Duomo. At first I thought I read from the website there would be breakfast...the staff ware so nice and patient.


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.

dear guest carry Disinfestations structure every month. if you request it, we invoice the company that does the work. Security personnel have staff present from 9.am/10 pm, at check-in for all guests are told that we have a room safe.
