Compared to other hostels this one ranks average. The extremely high ceilings amplified every sound which made it hard to sleep. The location was great, everything was very clean, and the price was definitely right. That being said, the atmosphere sucked. I enjoy a sense of community when I go to a hostel and the staff did nothing to offer that. There are so many huge common spaces that you have to go searching for someone to talk to or hang out with. I would stay here again though.
A good option for short stays. The structure is old (and big), but it gives a support for a short stay. Two things bothered me.The first, the bathroom was dirty for more than 12h (the toilet was unusable).The second, in the last day, when I arrived, my door was wide open, because someone had broken the lock.There weren't things of value of the closet (only clothes), but I was not notified when arrived. I had to go to the reception to find out what was happening,and they offered me another room.
This was my first hostel stay in Italy and it was absolutely perfect! My room (female, 8 bed) came with your own secured cabinets to hold all of your things for no extra charge. The staff was very friendly and the location was PERFECT!

the girl on the desk is very stupid but guys are very friendly there isn't kitchen and the breakfast is poor. wi-fi only works in common area
WiFi only works close to reception (on floor above it too). No kitchen but there is a fridge on ground floor next to the lift. I got cups of hot water a couple of times from the bartender in their restaurant (no mugs). No kitchen.
Very large place with no atmosphere, the place echo's from every sound. Was very loud private functions going on right behind the hostel both nights during the week, beds not great.
Really enjoyed my stay at this hostel, I ended up staying 2 extra nights. Definently a very good location to explore surrounding Tuscany.
My food and water was taken from the room and the lady in the reception was rude, not her fault she said. But definitily not mine!!!
