My mom and I stayed for one night. It's a nice enough hostel, the staff was very friendly and the room (though full of a lot of people!) was pretty good (dry, beds were alright, clean). The bathrooms were clean too and not too packed. The area is also, just unbeatable. Close to everything. The only down side was the...

This is the best hostel I’ve been to in the last 10 years. Why? 1. It’s super cheap. 2. It’s not hospital clean, but it’s clean enough to enjoy sleeping. The sheets are super clean though and super white. It smells a bit damp in general to the building structure, but it feels great to be in such a place...

About as average a hostel as you can imagine. Okay rooms, okay bathroom, okay atmosphere. Wifi is pathetic. Like seriously pathetic. The roof terrace is an absolute joke. It's literally big enough for one table and like five people to sit at it and that's a squeeze. Florence is a very walkable city so you'll find getting around the place...

It was not the best place to stay, very average. Some of the things I like is that there is someone at reception 24/7, they are informative about events and activities however the place does not justify the price. Its extremely hot in summer, and there is very little personal space, there is tooooo many beds per room so it...

Nice and clean, friendly staff, four showers and toilets per wash room so I never had to queue, good location, across the river 10/15 minutes form the centre. No air con and one fan so the four bed dorm was like a sauna. The street outside was very very noisy around 5 in the morning. It sounded like glass bins...

Likes : this hostel was value for money, the staff were very friendly and very helpful and the hostel itself was very clean. We found it to be in a great location as it was very easy to walk to the city centre and was very convenient when getting buses to the train station. I would recommend this hostel and...

The hostel is quite nice. Its big, it has nice showers, the staff is quite good. I tought that some areas of the hostel had some weird smell, but I think its just me. The common areas are really big, the kitchen looked really nice and the dinner room was colder than the rest of the hostel. What I disliked...

“Book early even when doing online booking. Private rooms probably best if a couple. Lots and lots of stairs so request lower floors if needed prior to arriving.”
