The hostel was in a good location, and the owner upgraded us for free. However he smoked like crazy inside the hostel so the entire hostel reeked of cigarette smoke.

Great place to stay in Florence. Right beside to the Arno and 5 minutes away from Il Duomo and Palazzo degli Uffizi. Unique atmosphere and a warm and capable staff. Most recomendable.


In the entrance of the building there is a smell of gas, which means a leakage, that is dangerous. There is an other smell but into the hostel, in the reception, it's very bad and also there are broken furnitures. In the bedroom nobody does the cleaning service even one single day. There is not toilet paper. One night, there was a fight in the reception of the hostel, we could listen screams and hits between the men that were there. No one told us what happened. A really bad experience.
