Although it was a relatively fun atmosphere and we got free dinner, I would not recommend for anyone to stay here. The bathrooms and kitchen were quite dirty. The WIFI didn't work and my friends stayed in a different room and got bed bugs. The manager tried to blame them and all they were offered was 5 euro for washing. On top of this you get locked out of the hostel from 10am to 5pm every day. I know a few others got bed bugs before us so they might have an infestation.
Good location. Very simple room and facilities, no kitchen. Overall, not too bad but I probably would stay elsewhere if I go back to Florence.
Hostel Lika is not too difficult to get to (catch a tram from station). However we arrived and received no orientation, the hostel itself is quite dark, poorly presented and dirty and our rooms were reasonable but the sheets looked very old and worn out. We had to get a late train before we left and they wouldn't look after our bags for just a couple of hours.
Castle hostel is a great place to stay - very clean, easy to find (super close to bus stop) and most important, Miha and Klemen were fantastic! They are lovely, will help you as much as possible and they drove us basically everywhere. Great place to stay!
Sax hostel is situated close to the main city centre which was great, however there were a number of downsides. There is no kitchen at all, no laundry facilities and staff were very unhelpful. It was very clean and the decor is nice but nowhere to relax.
We LOVED RETOX!!! We've been away 2 months and we had the best time here! The staff are awesome, the nightly events are great and it's in a great location too. We didn't want to leave. It is definitely a party hostel so we didn't get much sleep but had an amazing time!! Would have loved to stay longer.
