The hostel is located in the very city center, five minutes from the train station and all the main sites. The staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are clean, the view from the window fantastic. We've stayed there for 2 nights and were very satisfied with the quality of service. Highly recommend!

This hostel feels like staying over a friend's place is it is a renovated apartment. The entry has lots of stairs. A really good looking guy helped me to bring my staircase up. It is is the heart of Florence and the markets and as soon as you walk out you are in the heart of the action. The rooms...

Well all i can say is i was very impressed. i have only ever stayed in a hostel back in my teens, I'm in my 30's now and used to more refined accommodation. However i was blown away with Room 5 in this hostel with its comfort and styling. First of all I will point out that it is hard...

We loved this place when we first got there: great location couldn't get closer to the duomo for how cheap it was. Everything went downhill from there. The AC never reached the loft we were sleeping on, so we sweat all night long. The "breakfast" was coffee and tiny cookies. Staff was rude and hardly spoke English. Kicked everyone out...

Wowee were we in for a surprise. We were...

The place is super well located and there is breakfast included. However the room wasn't well cleaned and the air co didn't work properly. The noise from the streets are loud so the room I was in wasn't the best option. Wifi works ok.

Great location right near the centre! But my favourite part was the wonderful and helpful staff. The breakfast was either cereal or toast and coffee. Stay here for a easy time in Florence. Cute bedroom decor and newish bathroomfacilities! Be away it is right in the tourist area and so food in this area is extremely over priced. Wonder over...

Mati at the reception was very lovely and sweet. By far one of the best hosts ever. The hostel itself was fairly clean and quiet, conveniently located near the train station. Our room had a nice partial view of the Florence Cathedral and the bathroom was quite big and clean. The downsides were few although they were there. For example,...

I was upgraded to a larger room which was a plus. The staff were very friendly with breakfast put on each morning. The hostel is centrally located and a short walk to food, leather markets, the main shopping district as well as plenty of tourist spots. The wifi wasn't that great but did work. The hostel is up three very...
