Great location, just lacked atmosphere and security.
good location but rooms and facilities not good! but very close to central station and there is a nice place to sit and chat in the premises...
The hostel is well located, close to the train station, to the city center it's about 15-20 min walk. We didn't have our room right at the hostel but two houses further. But there our room was totally comfortable and spacious. The bathroom we shared with two other was quite big and clean. The best thing was the nice garden right infront of our room where you can chill out in a hoolywood-swing or in the grass. We only had Wifi in the real hostel. What I didn't like: there was no real kitchen.
Great porch for hanging out and picnics! Check in process was a bit disorganized and they didn't have change for us. This location is really convenient to the train station, but not very convenient to downtown Florence. All in all, a good experience!
This hostel is really good, and the staff was very friendly, I like the garden~
Good place for the good price. The staff is friendly and tells you what is the best things to do, Free coffee and tea. Nice, big kitchen. We got our free parking spot in a front of the hostel on the street. Wifi only worked for me in common areas- not a big deal, but it will be easier to have it in the room as well. Thank you.
Good hostel, but could do with a few improvements. For example, for a room of 5 people there were only 3 sockets to charge cameras and phones etc which is nowhere near enough. Had no ability to charge my phone in the room at night.
Great hostel. The family room was very clean, linen was clean and the toilet was rather large and spacious. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.
Good location, easy to find. Good wifi. no kitchen
The staff were very friendly and spoke english very well. It's only a short walk from the city center and many of the tourist points. My friend and I stayed here and it felt more like a hotel atmosphere because no one else ended up staying in the room with us. You can come and go from your room as you please and there is no assigned beds, limited access or curfews that you have to be back by. Our room had a toilet/shower to share amongst us that was only a short way down the hallway.
it is near central station. but the facility is not good enough. they arrange us in another building, not far away from the main building but no wifi there. the warm machine didn't work so we felt cold at that night,

we picked this hostel because it suposed to have parking space for free, but they forgot to say that there is a limit of 3 parking spaces!!! so if you arrive at the wrong time you will have to spend 1.5 euros per hour on parkin every day, till one of the spaces will be free. we slept in a diffrent building from the guesthouse, in the same street but not able to enjoy the facilities, it was another thing they forgot to mention before you book! Was good but I hate when they forgot many crucial
Decent place. The staff was friendly, free coffee and tea (sometimes you had to go looking for a mug). Wifi only worked for me in common areas... not a problem, but something to know. Also had a couple other issues... like troubles unlocking and opening the door to my room (the door handle on the inside was loose) (hopefully that's fixed by now) and they changed the sheets on the wrong bed in the morning so the next night a new person had to sleep on a dirty bed... a system might be good.
The location of this hostel is very close to the train station but about a 15 minute walk to the main attractions. The rooms where clean and we got ungraded to a private for free. The room we stayed in was in a different building then the reception and the common area which was a little odd. Besides that I would say that if its the best deal go for it. They do offer a laundry service for a small fee but there is no dryer.
We are Chinese exchange student. Staff are nice and helpful. The 4 beds share room is big and comfortable. The toilet is a little bit small, but it is acceptable. It will be better if we can have kitchen to cook food.

The hostel is close to main train station which is the only good thing about hostel. First of all one of the staff was very rude to us. Room was ok but there was even no hand-washing soap in toilet. When I asked they said they didn't provide. And also there were too many bugs and mosquitos in room. Not recommended.
You can find better, cleaner places in Florence for one or two more euros with similar locations. Easy to find and near train. Some people might find the staff crude. There is possibility for good atmosphere, but it just wasn't there when I went. Pretty average all around. Wifi works only in common areas, Mosquitos are rampant
Wifi is super nice. Clean rooms. But would be nicer if they have more showers and toilets. Nothing big to complain.
Self-service washing machines and dryers should be provided. More kitchen facilities is also needed.
Staff very kind and tells you what is the best things to do. Good rooms, but the double beds didn't have stairs to you go up, so you have to work it out in another way. The hostel is near the train station and far away (but you definitely can go by foot, it's about 20 min walk) of the leaning tower. The city itself doesn't have a lot to do (you can do pretty much everything in 1day), but it's great if you're want to chill out for a day before continue your trip.
