    Stayed for 3 nights in Oct 2019. The 24 hour staff was very helpful. The location is spectacular, one block away from the beautiful Duomo, near sights, shops, restaurants, and easy to find from anywhere in town. There is a kitchen and large balcony to sit/dine/eat, desks available 24 hours, and comfortable couch and chairs near reception. The thin mattresses & pillows left a little to be desired. My one complaint: MOSQUITOS in the dorms! Woke with multiple bites on my hands and ears every day.

    I hate writing reviews, but I had to brag about the staff here! The workers were super accommodating and so so nice. I was eating dinner on the terrace and someone gave me a couple of sweet croissants for dessert! I had a super early check out the next morning and the same man was working the counter, and he let me eat breakfast before it opened and gave me a few more croissants for the road! Location is right next to the duomo and the facilities are clean and cozy! Wish I stayed longer!

    Had a wonderful experience here! Definitely on the quieter side, which is great because there is so much to do in the city and it encourages you to get out and explore. Everything was very straightforward and very clean, the staff were excellent and the 24-hour reception is a life saver. Highly recommend!

    Overall, everything was good. They provide a simple breakfast and lockers. The cleaniless was good too. The staff were friendly and helpful. The security was poor as the front gates can be entered as anyone pressing the bells, there’s no locks for the rooms too. However, you can keep your valuables in the lockers (locks and keys provided).

    Love the location. WiFi worked perfectly at the reception. No so much in the room. The kitchen doesn’t have a stove. The only thing that bothered me was that you have to leave from 11 to 2:30 so they can clean. Other than that good place to stay

    I had a great time at this hostel, the rooms were nothing exciting but the facilities were great and the staff were wonderful. Big thankyou to the night shift staff who was super friendly when he saw me upset!

    I stayed here for a couple nights while exploring Tuscany. The hostel is centrally located, you can literally see the Duomo from its doorstep. There are no bunks here, which was a nice relief compared to other hostels, and everyone is provided blankets and a towel. The hostel has free wifi, but it does not work very well in the rooms. Everyone here was friendly, however they mostly kept to themselves, so it was not the best place to meet other travelers.

    Very Good

    The rooms in the hostel are very cool, you can tell you’re in an older building and that is great. Location is also unbeatable, easy walk from the station and the major sights are at your door. This hostel encourages people to leave from 11-2:30 for them to clean but it isn’t really clean. They do have a mosquito problem and there were dead bugs on the wall everywhere, and things were still very dusty. I would stay again for the location, granted I would like to see the cleanliness improve first
