    This is the best hostel I’ve stayed in, in Italy. I only stayed one night but I enjoyed the cleanliness, the privacy of the beds and the locker and towel you get. Check in was easy and their baggage storage area had a camera so I felt very secure leaving my bag their. Maggie helped me check in. She was a charm. Thanks Maggie!

    Fantastic hostel, the two guys that work there were so lovely and accomodating and helped us heaps. The rooms are really comfortable and spacious. The bathrooms are clean and a very ideal layout. The location of this hostel is the best part about it, so easy to get around and extremely central. Would definitely recommend and definitely stay here again!

    Staff is amazing!!! Super helpful and kind. There were however not outlets next to each bed, I had to get up to reach my alarm... Also ANTS right next to my bed. Luckily they weren't on it but I would rather not have them so close. Location is amazing, just perfect!!! Overall a good hostel with ants -.-

    A traditional youth hostel based in an excellent location. All of the major sites (ie. il duomo,ufrizzi gallery and palaza velechio are within walking distance). The dormitory I was staying in needed modernisation. My bed was missing a lamp and a socket. The sockets were placed at the front of the dorm. I found this slightly inconvenient because someone could come into the dorm and steal your phone whilst the phone was charging. The free breakfast was convenient and the bathrooms were clean.

    The location makes Academy worth it, and the place is pretty good too. The rooms have a bit to be desired but you’ll manage fine. Breakfast was simple but fine and the staff were friendly and easy-going.

    Place overall kinda sucked (it's in a really old building), air conditioning was awful, I didn't have a lamp or an electricity socket to charge my phone at night and the wifi doesn't work on the bedrooms (only "public areas"). The 'buffet' is low quality and even the positioning of the beds is awkward. Since Florence is so small, good location is simply not worth it. I had booked the place for two nights but had to leave after the first one (paying a cancelation fee). Go book another one!
