Very kind staff. Free wine and/ or pizza nights brings people together. The lock out for cleaning is a bit early.

Only pro is the location. Two toilets with showers within whole facility. Lockout hours is ridiculous. They will come in at 10am even if you are changing .It said its for cleaning but it's not clean at all. The free dinner is really cheap and taste like nothing ( can't compare to the hostel I stayed in Barcelona) very awakes common room cause the staff is always there with strange vibe. The lockers are small and need your own lock.

Warning: there is a 10am-4pm lockout everyday. Everything was very clean and the beds comfy. The two guys working there were very friendly! It just sucked having to stay out of the hostel everyday for 6 hours, especially when hungover!

This hostel is in heart of the city. staff moazam salman are so much kind and helping they let me store my luggage there after I'd checked out, before my train. VERY central to the best of Florence. staff were really helpful when needed. Very accommodating. They told us of local hangouts and where to eat like a local. all the facilities were good.

great location, good atmosphere, free wine and dinner. rule about leaving between 10-4 was lame - unsure why they needed 6 hours to clean such a small place. also only two bathrooms so be prepared to wait for the loo to dump the load.

Great location and nice vibe around dinner time with the shared dinner and wine. Found it odd that you're locked out for so long when there's no evidence that they do any cleaning at all

Nice places good atmosphere great location but the daily kick out at 1000hrs can be hard if your feeling rough

I came back to the hostel to find another guests stuff in my suitcase. I don't mind having to leave the property in the day but I don't see why it is necessary for them to rearrange luggage that has been let in a perfectly respectable way and was out of the way. The shower was awful there is no water pressure and there were large amounts of hair around the bottom. Being kicked out at 10 and only having 2 bathrooms for everyone to use meant mornings were hectic However free food, great location

Location is brilliant luckily.the free food and wine gets people socializing thankfully as the Common room lacks atmosphere. doubles as staff bedroom and you have to leave @ midnight.The cleaning lockout from 10am till 4pm is ridiculous.staff open your blinds and windows at 9am warning you have 1hr to get out.you will then find if you want one of the two bathrooms(which you are queuing for) that the staff are actually showering.nice guys.stupid rules.have to exchange passport for a key😳

We got free dinner with wine which is a great way to bring all the guests together. Though it would be nice to not be kicked out of the hostel for six hours while they "clean". All good apart from that.

Staff are very nice, but how is lockout for 6/24 hours and then kicking everyone out of the common room at midnight ok? The mattresses are grimy and old and mine had an indent in the middle, floors filthy, blanket dirty, ac drips into a bucket all day. Dinner and wine is great, and best location, need more chairs for people to hang out. Even with great staff and location I wouldn't come back because of the lockout, dirty floors that turned my feet black, questionable bedding cleanliness.

The location is perfect! Really hard to find though because the sign is tiny. Fairly clean, but only two bathrooms for a lot og people and no lockers in the rooms. Free pasta and/or wine every night and kitchen to make your own food. Lockout between 10-16 is too long time. Good place to meet people because you eat together.

Excellent location for exploring Florence. Did not get free pasta but did get lots of free wine. Only 2 bathrooms with both shower and toilet inside for the whole hostel. Need to bring own top sheet as they only give sheet for mattress and pillow case. Small hostel so good for meeting people, would be good for solo travellers.

Amazing place, great staff, free food and drink. We were there on Friday and Saturday, which are free sangria nights, and if you finish it all then they make more for you! The only problem was that there are only 2 toilets/showers, and the hostel can take up to 50 people, so you often have to wait before using them.

Very basic. The hostel is in a good location, very central. Also the atmosphere is good. Staff was friendly.
