Amazing! Very relaxed I spent 3 at Tasso- grounded people who run this place, very friendly and personable. Romona greeted me when I arrived with a beer on the house and we had a good chat which was needed after spending several days out exploring alone. Highly secure - I felt safe. The rooms are very clean, (cool industrial/vintage), the beds extremely comfy, bathrooms are modern and the hallways are light, airy with interesting art on the walls. Breakfast was great. Highly recommend.
Hands down the best hostel I have been too, the atmosphere is great and they host so many interesting and fun events during the week where you can meet a lot of people and talk not just with tourists but with the locals of Florence. Most friendly and helpful staff, we asked them for recommendations and they told us about a cool jazz club, places to eat, etc. Great atmosphere, the breakfast is good. No complains about the room nor the bathroom, a bit pricey but well worth it

I was the only guest at the hostel except over the weekend during a hip hop event which I was unaware of during booking. Music blared from 10:00 am to 1:30 am. No access to kitchen from Friday to Sunday during event. Breakfast minimal other than excellent coffees. Beautiful hostel but little opportunity to enjoy it during event and spent most of my time in room while at hostel. Only expensive single rooms available during booking but dorm beds unused while I was there. Very disappointed.
You stay here because the owners are flippin' awesome. We were the only ones here during our stay and they were very accommodating. From restaurant suggestions, making tour reservations for us, advice for the cities we were going to next, etc. They'd wake up with you to provide breakfast/coffee. Plus, it's a super cool building, a renovated school. HOT showers, oh man, that's a rarity. A bit of a walk from the train station (at least 20 min) and to major attractions, but a great little getaway.
I highly recommended this hostel. Really ice atmosphere, and good espresso and bar options which was appreciate. The building and area are really interesting. A great vegetarian friendly restaurant nearby, close to Ponte Vecchio and within walking distance to everything else but also a good distance away. Security was bad in terms of people able to access the six-bed dorm throughout the day and night. Would have been better to have been provided keys or at least some better personal security.
Its quite a big place but spotless clean and has a cool bar downstairs, and a kitchen. It was pretty empty when I was there so not much atmosphere.
Had a very nice stay. The common room was pretty groovy and the staff were very helpful with providing suggestions for places to eat etc. My only issue was that I found my room (10) too cold at night and ended up having to sleep in my down jacket.
Tasso was great! Amazing atmosphere, everything was sparkly clean, and the staff was such a great group of people. The location is in a quiet part of town, but still close enough to walk to all the beautiful sites. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the wifi only really worked in the entrance foyer and not really anywhere else. But, absolutely not a deal breaker. I would 100% come back to stay!!
I decided to go to this hostel because I wanted to meet other people and have a social hostel experience.. This was not the case at all. Although on the weekends they throw parties, they are catered toward the locals and did not make the rest of us feel welcomed. The last night I stayed at plus hostel, which was just as nice and less than half the price. This hostel was disappointing and I wish I had saved my money by staying somewhere else since I didn't get the fun experience I was paying for.
Not your standard hostel! I was in a 3 bed room and it was the size of an 8 bed room in others. The room was good, but didn't lock behind you so it meant that if one of your roommates left after you and didn't lock the door behind them anyone could just walk into your room. The hostel has a max capacity of 25, so I didn't meet a heap of people but the ones I did were good fun. All the staff were locals so gave us good advice, welcome cocktail and heated towel racks!! markets on Sunday in hostel
Had a really amazing stay here. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the facilities were excellent. The breakfast was very carb heavy, however there is a clean, well equipped kitchen for you to conjure up your own culinary delights. Not forgetting the utility room so you don't need to travel with a suitcase/backpack full of dirty clothes. 😃👍 amazeballs!

Tasso hostel is housed in a truly amazing space. The old theater is in a quiet but cool district. There are great restaurants, bars, and cafés in very close proximity. Definitely has an authentic feel. Staff is friendly, I was welcomed after my day of travel with a complimentary cocktail. The first two nights, birthday parties were hosted in the main space, and on both occasions I was fed and welcomed to the celebration. Breakfast is modest, but the coffee is good.

In my opinion the questions asked here make for a somewhat misleading rating. the facilities are excellent, the decor is stunning, and the DAY STAFF is very nice, but this hostel definitely tries to be a party hostel. If you want any sembalance of quiet at night do not stay here. It is also comparably very expensive, and did not appreciate having to argue with the night staff about the noise level when the staff members were the only ones partying and causing the noise.
Everything was ok but there is ample scope for improvement in the quality of breakfast to be served. Location is very good , quite and pleasant but locating the property is somewhat not easy
I slept in room 10, the heater did not work well and how the window and facing the bar, I had a little trouble sleeping because of the noise. Other than that everything great.
They have a very nice bar, a patio and a big kitchen where you can cook (I did). Be aware though that bar people are kinda loud when smoking at the patio, so you either join them or tolerate.
Amazing place, the cleanest hostel we stayed in. The staff was very nice and helpful, at your arrival they offer you a free drink in the living room/theater. Breakfast was good, the room was very clean, bathroom too, we highly recommend!
This place is happening. If you like music and life you'll like your stay here.
Tasso Hostel has a really good interior, everything was really clean and the staff were all very helpful. It took us 20 minutes to walk to the Duomo, maybe 15 to Ponte Vecchio, and the neighborhood was fine. We really enjoyed our stay here.
