    Overall this is the perfect place to stay for a short trip to florence, situated literally 50m from the cathedral its location couldn’t be more central to where you want to be. Good facilities, really well kept, great staff, really handy and cheap supermarket right next door so cheap meals wont be hard to find. Breakfast was standard as hostels go, definetly not complaining as you can have as much cereal and basic breakfast things as you want. Really enjoyed my stay and would come again for sure

    It is based at a very convenient location in Florence - a couple of steps away from the Santa Maria Cathedral / Duomo in Florence, and pretty much at a walking distance from the Firenze S.M.N. Hauptbahnhof itself. I went for a shared room with four people and an ensuite bath, and it was very neat and nice stay. If you're travelling from outside EU, and if you don't have a converter - it can be arranged on request, and likewise a multi plug. However, WiFi coverage was a bit of a problem.

    Amazing staff with great recommendations and customer service! Only downside is the location of plug sockets in the rooms can make charging devices a little tricky and that the rooms themselves do not lock so you have to lock away all belongings at all times. You also need to vacate the hostel between 11:00 and 14:30 for cleaning which we didn’t mind but could be worth being made clear on the website. Would definitely stay here again :-)

    Our stay was very convenient and everyone was very helpful. The environment was very welcoming and hospitable. The location though is the best part of this hostel. Everything is very central and thus is perfect for a short one or two night trip to Florence.

    The facilities were very nice! This was the nicest hostel I have yet to stay in throughout my travels. One small issue I had was the staircase in the room. It is very small and steep which made it very nerve-wracking to walk up and down the stairs, especially with my baggage! The breakfast that was provided was small but more than sufficient. The staff was very kind and welcoming. I was for sure stay again!

    Academy Hostel was in the perfect location. The rooms were spacious with good sized lockers, beds were comfortable and bathrooms were pretty good. Breakfast was simple but good to have something before heading off to explore Florence. Supermarket right next door and so close to bars, cafes, restaurants and shops. I really enjoyed my stay.

    The staff here were amazing and did a few little things that made my stay lovely. I found that the bathroom was dirty at times, even after the three hour lock-out for cleaning. There was only one PowerPoint in the room, which was fine for me but difficult for the other guest on the other side of the room. We made do with a few power boards connected together but that made a bit of a trip hazard in the middle of the room.

    It was a good location. Close to the main centre. There was no socializing in this hostel. If you like to be alone then this is the place for you. Overall the place was clean, safe and good for what it was. Breakfast was decent and allowed me to leave with having eaten something.
