    I can't stress how special this place is due to being located in a former monastery. The hostel is newly redecorated, spacious, safe, and clean. And one walks next to historic frescos when entering the hostel. Suggestions for minor improvements: better equipped kitchen with encourages interaction more, and improve the annoying check-in process at the tablet.

    The entrance to the hostel is part of Chiesa di Ognissanti! You literally need to go through the museum to enter! The room for 4 people had plenty of space for all of us to move freely. The bathroom was new and clean. I would recommend to add a kettle in the kitchen, because there is no way you can get hot drinking water for just a cup of tea or instant noodles, other than to boil the tap water in a huge pan.

    Amazing hostel! Best I’ve ever been in. Was in a six person mixed but felt super safe and comfortable the entire time. Location is okay but Florence is super walkable so it wasn’t an issue at all. Highly recommend !

    Nice and central building. Very poor kitchen facilities. NGH has the policy to refund the deposit *5-10* days after check-out, info that is nowhere on their published conditions.

    Quite unusual place since it's a convent turned into a youth hostel. I liked passing from the old corridors or sitting in the garden next to the kitchen. The rooms have such a high ceiling, if you get a top bed like me u feel like you live in a fortress - the only bad thing is top beds dont get a lot of space up there so if you have a big suitcase is impossible to have it next to you. Only thing missing is a social atmosphere, really not the easiest place to meet other people if solo travelling

    Big rooms with comfy beds. The upper bunk bed offered a lot of privacy. Nice bathroom as well but not really clean. There was a really loud construction right outside our room and they‘ve started working at 8 am. The kitchen missed a lot of necessary tools, so it was difficult to cook. The whole atmosphere is pretty silent and everybody is kinda reserved; maybe not the best option for solo travelers.

    There aren’t many staff working in the lounge accommodations front desk, the cafe, and bar so we did have to wait a significant time to check in. Five person room is spacious. However, there was hair all over our bathroom and on one of the beds my friend found a bug that highly resembled a small bed bug.There was an external event, a party/rave till 3am where the hostel cared more about the event guests than hostel. We felt the hostel did not meet its high 9.1 rating and was a slight let down.

    I didn’t even stay here because I couldn’t enter Italy/leave my country due to Covid-19, and the staff REFUSED to refund my booking. They offered a voucher valid for 1 year and after explaining how I am returning back to school and cannot use this voucher, they still refused to refund my money back. They said their government told them to only issue vouchers, but I received a refund to my credit card from my hostel in Rome. Does not make sense. Terrible service, will never be booking here again.

    The worst hostel I have ever had the displeasure of TRYING to stay. I had a problem with the documentation at the time of check in, and the attendants were totally indifferent and unwilling to resolve, making me lose part of my day chasing the authorities to try to solve the problem, and after another hostel to be able to spend night. Finally, I was even CURSED (!!!!)by one of the attendants in Italian (who must have thought I wouldn't understand). I wouldn't even recommend it to my worst enemy!
