    Towels, mini-fridge, wifi, no bunk beds (5-person dorm feels like a hotel room). Not a great place to meet other young travelers, and you have to specially arrange check-in post 5:30pm, but the staff is really nice, and the hostel is in the heart of...More

    Had a great stay here in Florence. The location couldn't be better!! Minutes walk from Piazza Vecchio and the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio. Also close to cheap food and shopping areas. Room was very bright and orange. Comfortable and homely. Even offered amenities and...More

    Okay just to share a story with you guys. My friend and myself (two young girls in our early 20s) turn up to Florence, make our way to our "HOSTEL" and our information sheet says 'ring the buzzer when you get there'. We ring and...More

    I booked a hostel and was positively surprised to find a "hotel" instead. I knew that I had a private room, but I was not expecting a mini fridge, complimentary tea/candy and someone to make my bed everyday. This was a huge surprise and I...More

    Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
    Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
    Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
    artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
    Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
    the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
    continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
    by songs and dances.
