    Tasso was really cool with their bar space—there was a jam session happening on my first night which was very chill and a good selection of drinks from the bar. Beautiful outside area, too. It was easy to make friends with those in my room. It’s a little bit away from the main tourist parts of the city but still close enough that it wasn’t too far walking.

    Excellent, quiet hostel with lovely garden, organised staff, a great vibe and a fully equipped Italian kitchen. They let me stay all day and work on my laptop after I checked out. A great place to hang out.

    An absolutely amazing place. Beautiful lounge room, amazing bedrooms with single beds and ceiling fans. I felt like I was in The Maltese Falcon. What a hidden gem, both the hostel and the city. I’ll come back to Florence just so that I can stay here. Super cool staff, in-house bar and free breakfast. Absolutely a top hostel. Highly recommended.

    One of my favourite hostels I’ve ever stayed in. The staff were extremely kind and helpful and recommended a great restaurant for me to eat at. The beds were comfortable and the dorm room was really pleasant to stay at - all the people for the 3 nights I spent there were solo travellers so it was really easy to talk and meet people. The area seemed far away at first but walking around at night there was a great atmosphere and lot of nice places to eat and is easy to walk to tourist attractions

    Location is on the other side of the river from the main attractions, but is only about a 20 minute walk to the main attractions. I found this to be the perfect mix because you are in a more authentic area and less touristy. The hostel common area is one of the nicest I have ever seen. My only suggestion is to repair the lockers in the shared room I stayed. The staff said they would look into this and offered to lock anything I needed. This is truly a great, clean, hostel with character !!

    Very clean almost hotel like. Staff was very nice and friendly. Place has a bar and garden but there wasn’t anyone there. If you want to be social and meet people this is not the place as another reviewer said and it was very disappointing. Breakfast is 1 croissant and 1 coffee — definitely not enough and if you wanted to go out nearby for breakfast, there were many real options that didn’t involve sandwiches.

    Really cool place even though it was really quiet when I was there. Staff were cool and facilities were standard, fans in the room didn’t do a lot. I would definitely stay here again (I also stayed elsewhere in Florence) in the hope it’d be busier!

    Didn't realise this is also a venue that can have concerts on until 1am. Other than that I enjoyed my stay clean rooms and beds. Woild have preferred the lockers to be larger and the breakfast is a coffee and croissant which isn't too bad but have had better

    When initially reading about this hostel I heard it was great for social travellers but however there was no atmosphere and more had the vibe of a hotel but not with the facilities. If you're a solo traveller looking for a great atmosphere and to meet others, Tasso isnt for you. However the big positive of this place is the staff were really nice and super helpful with anything i needed and gave great recommendations especially for amazing food around the area.

    WARNING: Check their facebook page for events BEFORE booking! Don't get suprised by a late night Jazz fest like we did. While it was a very nice hostel, it was very loud. There was an event that was not well advertised, and jazz music kept us up until almost 2 AM. Would not recommend this hostel if you are looking for a quiet place to sleep. Would be good if you enjoy late nights and music.
