The worst experience I've ever had!! The bathroom on the floor was so dirty and stinked terribly! The bunk beds are so uncomfortable, your head will necessarily be hit when you're getting up on the bottom bed. The staff wasn't much friendly! I was made to buy a Hostel International Membership card for 4 euros which I didn't even get in the end!
The hostel is situated a bit off the centre of Florence, but there are buses running till midnight which get you to the gate of the hostel. However, from the gate to the actual hostel is a fair hike. Maybe around 600m. The breakfast was okay, nothing special. The boys showers and toilets are only on first floor and girls on the ground which maybe a pain. The showers have no doors just curtain, which for me was annoying.
Cons ; a little bit far from the center (about 20 minutes by bus)/ there is a fee(2 euro per night) if you do not have a membership for this hostel/ I think it would be hard to get to hostel if you have a heavy carrier (the road is uneven)////// Pros ; quiet place/ staffs are nice and kind/ breakfast is nice/ there are vending machines and TV in the hall/ facilities are clean/ bathroom is big
It is really far away from the city center. There are 2 buses that goes to the hostel. One of them works only workdays until 21:30. the other one works everyday until approximately 01:00. The bus journey takes about 20-25 minutes. After getting off from the bus, regarding the one you take, you need to walk between 400-900 meters in order to reach to the hostel. As we arrived there, there was a problem with the wifi connection and they didn't bother doing anything to solve it.Other than that OK
Nice place but far of the center... Anyways have a nice breakfast and the weather into the bedrooms were very nice.

It was good but a little far from entrance to building.
The place is a little bit far, and require some hiking, but it's a beautiful place, and if everything is full in the center it's a good option. Not good for couples or mixed gender groups since thee is only female and male dorms....seems a little bit out dated....descent breakfast included. A good place for calm and relax, no party hostel for sure.
