It's not like the worst hostel but it has a lot of downsides.
We had a nice stay, you get what you pay for.
I had a pleasant stay here, i recommend it.
The location of the hostel is great it's literally in the heart of Florence. I did not like the overall attitude of the staff, they were not friendly and helpful. Another thing about the hostel is that it totally lacks the atmosphere of a "euro student home" it is just a place to sleep and nothing more. This is not a place to meet fellow travelers.
