    Guys, I better location... hands down!! Everyone is so helpful and sweet! The guys at the desk were my tour guide and therapists for all the random things that kept happening to me. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Cozy, clean, convenient... you’re making the right choice going here!

    Overall, nice place to stay, especially on a budget. I didn't like that there was only 1 bathroom for 5 people. However, the staff were super friendly and even provided a "breakfast to go" because we checked out at 4am. Great location!

    Great central location, which meant we didn’t have to use any public transportation during our stay which was great. Facilities could maybe be improved considering there is very basic kitchen amenities, e.g no oven or stove, only a microwave and small grill. This made cooking hard, but they do offer a great free breakfast. Staff were helpful. Would advise to anyone planning to go to Florence to bring insect repellent as there are lots of mosquitoes in the city.

    I stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of May. Very quiet and relaxed place - definitely not a party hostel. Location was amazing, right in the heart of Florence. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The rooms, bathrooms, and common areas were very clean. The lockers were very large which was nice. There were only a couple of bathrooms which was a little inconvenient but not a big issue. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here and would book here again if I ever return to Florence.

    Location is best part about this hostel. A great place to stay if you plan to be out of the hostel exploring. The hostel is clean and comfortable and a safe place to stay. Staff is friendly and helpful. Only real complaint was the outlets are not near the bed, which makes it awkward to charge your phone. The atmosphere is very mellow and nothing to facilitate meeting people.

    Very good location, steps away from the Cathedral and about 10min walk to the Florence SMN station.

    Maybe I just had bad roommates for my stay but it didn’t seem like a great hostel to meet other people. Hostel room doors don’t lock but lockers were fairly big and seemed secure so valuables could be kept safe. Location was quite good

    Amazing location! Decent facilities, although the bathroom was detached from the room and was pretty gross.
