This hostel says in the description that all rooms have been recently renovated and their site contains many lovely pictures of these renovated rooms, but upon arrival my daughter and boyfriend were taken to another building where the room was tiny and not even close to what is pictured. This room was booked weeks prior to arrival so it was...

My friends and I stayed here for one night during a week-long trip to Italy, but we ended up wishing we'd stayed longer! The three of us were lucky enough to stay in a gorgeous apartment overlooking the Duomo--for the price of a hostel! We arrived early despite having a bit of trouble finding the hostel (directions were clear, the...

It's central, but that's about as much as is good about it. The guy at the front desk was incredibly rude and not happy to help us at all. The place itself needs some significant renovation to make it pleasant. There are much better options in Florence, I'd avoid if possible.

Overall, this hostel is very average. Fairly clean, fairly comfortable private rooms and OK service from the guy who works up front. Let's face it, you don't stay at a hostel for comfort and amenities, so this shouldn't disappoint. It's biggest selling point is the location. Easy walk to everything including Ufizzi, Duomo and train station.

Smelly sinks, shower. Lovely-not! The room was a good size, it had a reasonably priced minibar - bottled water cost no more than in the shops. It wasn't the friendliest place when we arrived, but they did help with our bags when leaving and called a taxi for us. The location was good. It's not disabled friendly, not their fault...

I booked a private room and it was absolutely beautiful. It is set up very nice and is very clean. It is separate from the main office but in a wonderful location. Our room was located somewhat in the center of the main attractions. It was a five minute walk from the Statue of David and was surrounded by stores,...

We went to the address on our confirmation but later were moved to another location. The new location had a musty and smoky smell. The room was big and roomy but the shower head fell and broke on the first night we were there. The location of the hostel is very central.

It was the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The owner was very friendly. He even showed us more rooms and allowed us to choose the one that we preferred. Needless to say the location was excellent, in the heart of Florence with a view of the dome. It was also very clean and cheap. I would love to go...

The hostel was clean and beds very comfy. Very central for all attractions and very near to the river which is lovely to walk along early morning or as the sun is setting. Large room with sleeping for 5 people, a fridge and tea making facilities.
