Extremely central, so if want to be smack dab in the middle of Florence, stay here. Reasonable price, good wifi, clean sheets. But no top sheet to put under blankets that I doubt get washed since so thick. The negative is the lock out at 10a so that we can't even stay and make breakfast or relax in common room. Also was asked two times, by same staff person within 2 hour span if I returned the hostel keys and I did it in morning when checked out so can receive my ID. Short term memory perhaps?

The 1st 2nd and 4th picture on Hostel world aren't from the Hostel :P I didn't love the cleanness of the blankets or not having a cover for my blanket with weird stains on it and the lockout time from 10-4pm wasn't very welcoming. Also only having 2 washrooms for the amount of people staying was not good. Asking around the room lots of people payed different rates for the same night the lowest one being 10€ a night. Good location though

For the price, this is the best deal you can find in Florence. The place itself was standard, nothing special but no complaints. The hot water in the shower was more like lukewarm while I was there, but other than that everything was fine. Excellent location, I'd recommend it.

(+)The room is spacious, with locker, and comfortable enough. It's not a bunkbed, but 3 single beds in one big room. So, there's a lot of space inside. The location is great, near shops, and another restaurants. Also, the staffs are very warm, welcome, helpful, and don't mind to serve pasta for the guests several times a week. (-) No lift, the main door is hard to open by key-chip, the pillow is quite thick, and noisy at night since it's located near the street.

This is budget accomodation at its best. Huge spacious rooms, a great kitchen, relaxed and fun atmosphere and great staff too who will go that extra mile if you need it. You won't beat it's location. Dave and his team really made me feel at home. Will definitely stay there again when in Florence.

The hostel was very dirty and had a terrible curry smell that soaked into your clothing. The doors for 2 of the rooms don't actually lock, and safes are not provided (so you're basically open to the entire world 24/7) - there are however lock boxes, so make sure that your bring a lock. If you're only interested in a cheap place with an amazing location, stay here. However, if you're interested in any comfort stay away.

Room doors with broken locks (staff told me that a guy broke the lock in my room just two days ago....but why did he brake the locks in all the other rooms, too?!?), bed covers with hair and dirt on them, curry smell all around the hostel, no maps available (staff told me that they just ran out of maps...), window could not be closed completely (in January!)

Me and my friend were in florence and we were having problem in finding the hostel, then we found this hostel at really good rate and we stayed for two nights, it was excellent experience. The guys at the reception, extremely kind and helpful, you can tell them any problem and they will solve it. I recommend it highly since its in the centre of the city. i wish to stay at this hostel again if i ever come to florence again in my life.
