Herzlichen Dank für das warme Willkommen in Florenz! Für uns war der Aufenthalt bei euch einer der besten während unserer Reise. Sehr hilfreich waren für uns auch die guten Restaurants- und Sightseeing-Tipps. C'était très bien. Continuez comme ça, merci!

The hostel owner, Nana was warm and lively. The day I arrived My Friends was freezing. I was very ill and stayed in the dorm sleeping for almost one day. She was so patiently helpful with everything and shared the New Year's hot wine and panetone with us. The location was brilliant, it was 5 minutes' walk from Duomo/central market and railway station. And you can have a map( with love) of gelato,panini and must see from Nana. Even the breakfast was the best I had in Italian hostels.

There was slight miscommunication on my time of arrival, and Nadina actually called me up and asked if i need help for directions or other help. She even went to train station to pick me up and helped me all the way to the hostel!!! She also hands us extra blankets cos she's afraid we'd be cold at night. Best host ever met, felt even before i reach the hostel. The rooms are tidy and cozy, sheets and towels are changed everyday. Breakfast is nicely prepared, the kitchen is also quite easy to use.

The place is nice and comfortable , clean and one of the most friendly staff I met during my travel in Europe ; I forgot to carry my Smartphone with me and was bit worried about visiting places in Florence , The map provided by Nadina is like TripAdvisor with all the attractions , Gelateria and food places ..for me that was awesome .

Wow, wow, super extra wow! It was a great pleasure staying at this Hostel. Nadina, the host, is very welcoming. She would make you feel as if you're in a five star hotel, yet with all the benefits of a hostel i.e. meeting and making new friends. It was always clean and the breakfast was prepared with love. The hostel is about 5 minutes walk from the train station and another 5 minutes walk to the Piazza del Duomo. I would surely highly recommend this hostel. Thanks Nadina xx

This was the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Nadina was incredibly sweet, accommodating, and hospitable. We were very happy with our rooms and the facilities, including comfortable beds, nicely decorated rooms, etc. Definitely made my experience in Florence even better than it would have otherwise been and by far my favorite hostel after traveling around Europe and staying in many hostels this semester.
