Florence Youth Hostel

Florence, Italy

Not my favorite. The Internet was turned off at night and not turned on until AFTER the lockout ended the next day, so I was pretty helpless in the mornings. They were really lenient and nice about the lockouts, letting you linger past 10 without making a fuss. They also let us store our stuff there the day we checked out until we had to leave. There were no lockers, but security didn't seem to be an issue. Location great. Think I contracted bedbugs from this hostel though - mattress was a mess.

The Silk Road

Venice, Italy

great experience! alex & max are both super accommodating and friendly, and this kind of removes the 'hostel' vibe - definitely more of a b&b feel! with that in mind, if you're looking for a party hostel this definitely won't be it. breakfast was the best you can get -- max explained that some law doesn't allow them to serve anything unpackaged. the location was perfect, right on the water and indeed in walking distance of anything you could want to get to. only issue was no AC!
