Absolute joke of a place - DO NOT BOOK THE PRIVATE ROOMS HERE.
For 3 days, the bathrooms shared between private rooms had no hot water. When I complained at reception, they were not able to come up with an alternative solution even though the...More
I went by myself this summer and was amazed by the quality of the place considering the price. The location is just stunning - getting to the Duomo takes literally 30 seconds, but you might as well view it from the hostel's entrance. It was...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
