    I Truly enjoyed this hostel, it was walking distance to the tram which made it easy for my friend and I to get to the Florence airport. They have activities set up each day. They also have a bar, food and board games downstairs which made it easy to make friends at the hostel. All the staff were so amazing! I would totally stay at this hostel again. Also shoutout to Haven, for answering my questions and helping me with my luggage. YELLOWSQUARE ROCKS!!

    This hostel was the best one I have stayed in Europe. So clean, comfy beds, spacious, good layout, cool events, awesome staff, great indoor and outdoor spaces to hang out, a pool, good aircon, good location near the tram but still in a quiet area. It was hands down awesome 10/10, I would give it an 11 if I could.

    A bit far out from the city centre. Nice hostel though. Although the bathroom floor didn’t seem very clean and smelt a bit. one of my roommates slept naked which was a bit strange but obviously not the hostels fault.

    Great hostel! Helpful, nice staff. Just that Our bathroom floor design had flaws, and every time sometime showered the water would make a mini gross pool in the entire bathroom that needed cleaners to come and dry the water…which they did when we asked. Also food from hostel was pretty bad! Lol dry fries and sandwiches… but overall awesome patio upstairs and would recommend staying there!

    Great facilities, pool, bar, activities etc.. super easy to meet people, if you want to be social you should sit out the front at night or take part in some of the activities, the pool is great. I went in September and it was €54 euro a night which is probably too much for the facilities, just because the dorms are pretty average (although each bed has a safe which is nice) staff are nice, overall it was a great stay. Definitely go to the pool.

    the most social hostel i’ve ever been to! they have so many events it’s perfect for meeting people. if you’re not big on partying they do have other events like bag painting, yoga classes, walking tours etc. the staff are all so lovely too. the lockers aren’t quite big enough to fit a case/larger backpack in but there’s space under the beds (not lockers though). they put in a lot of effort, but it’s still quite an expensive hostel especially as it’s not in the centre of town (15-20minute walk)
