    The room was clean and perfectly located in the center of Florence! There were also some basic breakfast offerings, which was nice! Each guest had their own assigned locker in the room, and it felt very safe! There was some noise, but it was more than worth the central location!

    Half of the hostel was closed during my stay there, but the staff was fun and good-natured, and the owner reduced the rate when I extended my stay in Florence. The hostel was clean and comfortable - the breakfast was fair and very basic. It seemed like the hostel might close in the future, but for a medium hostel stay in the winter, I was pleased with my stay.

    It was my second time staying here and I would probably stay a third time. Most (2 of 3 for us) were very friendly. The room we stayed in was very large but seemed dated compared to my first visit. The WiFi in the rooms was quite bad, but that wasn't a problem for me. It was all single beds, so no bunk beds during either visit.

    The toilet in my room was broken. The person working the front desk was not pleasant and unwelcoming. Overall, the location of this hostel is what sets it apart.

    The hostel is located at a covenant place where all the historic sites are at. The only thing I didn’t like was the lack of electrical outlets and the hot water source for bathing is scares. Overall, the staff is helpful but the facility needs some improvement.

    Really great location with helpful staff, but do not be expecting much for the quality of the room or how clean it will be.

    First of all, great location. Room is big and no bunk beds, also a plus. But the beds are very uncomfortable, and I found it hard to sleep at all. Not to mention the building is old and I think undergoing renovations? Room door doesn't lock and the gate is automatic with a code, so security is pretty minimal. There was no atmosphere to the place at all, not to mention a shortage of outlets in the room, old building but still. There's better hostels in Florence, I moved after 2 nights.
