Location is very out of place. Rooms are not very nice and beds didn't even come with sheets... People were very loud into the early hours of the day and facilities were not well maintained.
One of the ladies at the desk had an awful attitude problem: very sour. the catering personel were very nice though. This place seems to be a home for refugees or asylum seekers?
Please, do not stay here. It's worth your money to stay closer to the center. It's way up on a hill about 45 minutes walking distance from anything you'll want to see in Florence. The staff were rude, the facilities were not clean, and we didn't really feel that safe. We were going to stay two nights, but we cancelled our second night and got a hotel in the town center - it was worth it. It's not worth saving €15 euro staying here.
staff was very nice, didn't speak English but were very helpful.
Good price and well located to explore Florence from. However the wifi was down for practically all of our stay, and there was a accidental fire alarm on our first night at around 2am. These things do happen, however there was no real apology or reimbursement offered. In fact, the guests were yelled at for congregating when the fire alarm was set off which I thought was rather rude.
AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL building and park! I stayed in the dormitory and in the camping aswell, and both were pretty ok for cleanness and organization. This hostel is pretty far from the center and from the train station, but decently connected by public service. The wifi is weak, but this is compensated by the emotion to read a book and relax in that architecture. Recommended.
Staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful.. The wifi was slow and stopped working for a day. There is no cinema, no restaurant and no cable TV. When the cleaners came into the room the only thing they touched was the bin. The only great thing about this hostel was the outside- beautiful fresh open gardens- a perfect place to relax. It is easy to get to the centre but very far away. The closest supermarket is a 15 minute walk away. The breakfast is very basic but not horrible. No air con.
The place is nice, free breakfast, they give us free shits for the bed, staff is friendly, bus stop is closed to the hostel But it is away from the city center, you have to pay for towels, internet access is only in the living room, there is no kitchen. Finally, i recomend this hostel because the place and staff are really nice, we don't need to spend all our time on the net and now prices are very low.
