Definitely a good place to stay. Close to the train station and really easy to find. Staff really helpful.
The guys were really accommodating, there was free drinks and snacks the evening we arrived which was an excellent way of the guests to get to know each other. Comfortable beds, great night in Florence!

Excellent location and thats worth alot, but that's all this hostel has going for it. They try to position themselves as a party hostel, but kick you out of your room from 10am to 4pm to "clean." They do not clean clearly because the rooms are quite dirty and the bathrooms are rather moldy and smelly. What they actually do, I'm not sure, but I came back at around 2pm one day and all of the bunk beds were folded up and the mattresses were standing up along the walls. I'd post a photo if I could.
Had an amazing time here, everyone was super friendly the rooms were quite large and air conditioned. There were a lot of stairs getting to the place and a little trouble finding it everyone knows it as a Student home free wine pizza partys at night were great! The only downfall is there was only two bathrooms but they're super clean. It is perfectly situated a few streets over from the Duomo. Also very close to the Accademia and bridges to the other side of the river. I would stay again.
This hostel is in a prime location, though difficult to find, building was well secured. Atmosphere was fantastic, it's small enough that everyone could hangout and go out together! Although when someone was sick the bathroom smelled like puke for the next few days, which was gross. We either got free dinner or wine and snacks every night!! There's no elevator FYI. The lockers are small but just enough for your valuables! Only two bathrooms but wasn't ever a huge issue. And lockout from 10-4
The staff manager in this hostel is the best I've ever been to. Everything is great here, especially for the tourists traveling alone. The hostel provides FREE pasta or wine every night!
Well, the location was perfect, just 3 minutes walk to Ponte Vecchio, however you can't find the apartment easily, almost nothing has written at the entrance. It's clean, no problem while staying, but 2 bathrooms are definitely not enough for 25 people. Also they wake you up at 10 a.m. to leave cause it's closed between 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. Nobody allowed to stay inside because of cleaning, but it's to long. Staff is nice and free drinks everynight, but it's expensive comparing to facilities.
Best hostel in Florence!! Great friendly staff and young people, clean, and free wine every night!!
Only stayed for 2 nights and for what it was and the price id say it was okay. Only 2 toilets for 20+ people but it was great for meeting other travelers. Be wary of the 10-4 lockout hours. I would stay again.
The hostel was in a great place very central to everything, the only down side is that they lock you out for 10am till 4pm to clean the rooms! friendly staff and really helpful :)
Free sangria on Friday/Saturday nights. Open lobby to meet others. Good wifi, showers, bathrooms. Only two bathrooms for 20-25 people though. Fun place overall.
Complete WASTE OF MONEY: 1. Only 2 bathrooms in the whole hostel. 2. Lockout from 10:00-16:00 everyday (nobody can stay in the hostel). 3. Impossible to find (no signs). 4. WiFi only works in small common area. 5. Have to climb 4 flights of stairs to get to it. Don't make the same mistake.
I only stayed here for one night but I had a nice stay. The guy that runs the place was friendly, I arrived on a Saturday night which is sangria night and was literary handed a glass as I walked through the door. There was a long wait for the bathroom most of the time and I have seen nicer bathrooms too, but the beds were comftable and there was a good social space so it was really easy to meet people. Also the location is perfect, you can't get much more central than this place.

Excellent place to stay. Staff here goes out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Dave and Moazam both are very kind and helpful. Best part about this hostel is that they have free Sangria Nights where people meet and bond. Also Dave takes care of partying!! ;) Moazam on the other hand will make sure you feel at home. Location of this hostel is the biggest advantage. Every sight in Florence is 10-15mins walk or less.
Pretty good hostel... Lockout hours are 10-4. Which is just way to long... Too clean. Also they move the beds around sometimes which means they also move your stuff around. Other then that it was great. Perfect location. Had social gatherings every night. Really fun people.
Staff was very nice and helping made my stay excellent, they offer you free parites, Free wine, pasta, pizza, snacks, this hostel is superb, Clean hostel and easy walking distance to all of the parts of the city you want to see. Excellet facilities, Great location no need for public transportation. Comfortable dorms that are spacious. good wifi, kitchen, lockers, free computers to use in the common room, I highly recommend and would definitely go back !
Location, atmosphere and staff were the best I've ever had in a hostel. It's nice that the staff tries to organise evenings with everyone from the hostel (basically every evening at 20:30), which makes it easy to meet new people. Only two showers, but if you shower in the afternoon instead of in the morning, this isn't a problem.
Hostel had really garbage facilities. Two bathrooms for 25 people meant you were waiting a long time in the morning to shower. Staff was really mediocre. The only saving aspect was the location. Would not recommend.
