Kitchen was awful, only used as I was low on cash being my final stop. Pub was more filled with local drunks and old men than travelers. Bunks in 9 bed were shocking - squeaky, ladder always half breaking, 3 tiered and not attached to the wall which was quite scary. Staff seem more preoccupied with the pub than dorms. The location is good as there is the underground just down the road and walking distance to some hot spots (depends how much you like to walk though).
Had a grest stay at this hostel, after having little sleep in the weeks leading upto here it was great tohave some quiet time!! Alltourists leave this town fairly early which makes it easy to wind down after a day of hiking or swimming etc. Sad that there isnt much of a kitchen to use but its no more expensuve to eat out thsn her places in italy snd they understand the concept of take away! Great rooms, bathrooms and the staff were super friendly.
Hardto find when the msrkets are all up. Said to pay in cash but then when got there had to pay by card as cash was too difficult for some reason. Only stayed one night but didnt seem to have too much of a party atmosphete but is a good location for all things to do in florence. I checkec out at 7.20am and there wasno one at reception vso had to leave my keys with a note...
Great place to stay, relativley easy to find, loved having a kitchen and a secure locker at end of bed that could fit backpack and everything in it!
If arriving by bus chat to one of the locals who are always waiting for you when you get off and get them to direct you as the first time through the medina can be quite tricky!! Once you get used to it, it's a sweet spot close to food, shopping and of course the beach. They organize daily surf tours as well which are awesome! Staff are friendly, accoodating and totally make you feel at home. Miss this place already, thanks for a good stay guys!! :) :)
