Extremely helpful staff, facilities, location, atmosphere, bed comfort, quality and cleanliness of sheets and towels, shower quality and cleanliness, well stocked breakfast
Buzzer and clunking gate opening to let people in the night meant sleep was a bit disturbed.
Super good location, literally couples of steps from the Cathedral. Rooms were clean and staff was very nice and helpful!
clean room, good location
The staff was especially helpful giving lots of sightseeing tips as well as where to find other things like groceries etc. They also spoke very good English which was helpful for us. Great location!
Screens in windows instead of the smelly citronella for mosquito control would be good.
Close to everything, helpful staff, no bunk beds, clean modern rooms and bathrooms. Nice hot showers. Free food and wine every night. No bar so not not a party hostel. Chilled atmosphere.
This hostel is spacious and clean. It's run like a well-oiled machine and you don't even need a key -- there's a porter at all hours.
You aren't allowed in the rooms from 11am to 2.30pm while they clean. That's why it's so pristine, but it is a long time.
fantastic location and great facilities, cleaniliness.
long lock out time , unfriendly staff and cleaners, no atmosphere, freezing cold rooms, bizarre attitude to going out at night (i.e. discouraged).
excellent location, modern, secure and clean facilities and service
Excellent location (finding the right number on the street a bit difficult). Washing machine was allowed to be used in late hours.
There were only sweet things at the breakfast. Wi-Fi did not work everywhere. Sounds from the rooms next door and from common areas were clearly heard in the sleeping room (e.g. stumping on the stairs).
Clean and nice:)
Amazing location, friendly helpful staff, very clean, breakfast, dinner and wine, great kitchen, beautiful common areas, no lock out time, big lockers, nice bathrooms, laundry.
There was nothing I didn't like.
The proximity to the Duomo and other amazing sites was the best! The place was super clean and hip and fun and the 4 bed room was great with a huge ensuite. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable.
Having to leave the room during clean-up was a drag, but their patio hang out was a cool place to relax until they opened- plus the place was always clean!
Great location ,very close to the sites and train station Very clean!!!
there is improving room for the breakfast
So close to the train station and everything Florence has to offer- cannot fault this hostel which was more like a hotel in terms of bathroom facilities. Staff were so knowledgable. Breakfast was great.
This is THE place to stay in Florence! The staff is very friendly and helpfull, the room was clean, very good location and the breakfast is Just perfect.
Great employees, very near from the train station, very nice rooms and bathrooms.
the free hostel happy hour out on the terrace at 6pm was a great way to meet people & they provided a snack & a large carafe of wine for everyone. the location was central & provided a safe place from which to explore. the hostel itself was very attractive & very clean. there were no bunk beds that I saw & all beds had these cool dividers between them, which was great for some privacy. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
ONE tiny thing only: there were mosquito plug-ins/traps in each room, but they were still all over & I got a few bites every night.
Location, staff, facilities and evening apertif were wonderful!
I didn't like that you have to leave between 11 am and 2:30 pm every day but I appreciate that they are so diligent with the cleaning.
Clean, good beds, gratis pasta and wine happy hour. Super location.
Breakfast selection was limited. More expensive than most.
Very clean, excellent location. Everyday snack at 6:30 pm is great!
A bit expensive. There are few bathrooms, so one may have to wait for 10-15 mins in mornings.
The location was amazing, very close to the Duomo. Great staff, clean rooms & bathroom, also lovely idea to have drinks and snacks on the terrace in the evening - it really helped us to meet the other guests.
Only small thing was no plug sockets by the bed so charging phones/cameras was a bit difficult. Other than that it was fantastic
Just a few metres alongside Duomo. Quiet yet so convenient. Had private room which was large and very comfortable.
Bit of problem with airconditioning timer. Managed to reset first night but it was very hot till 1.30 in morning when it reset itself.
Absolutely everything! This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. It's in a pallazzo in the shadow of the duomo. It's air conditioned and the towels are included. They have individual portable night lights, great courtyard views, a lovely covered terrace. It's amazing!
Nothing. This is one hostel that gets all the points.
The location was very central, by il duomo, and it was clean.
You are not allowed to be in the hostel, at all (not even in your room) from about 11-3pm, for cleaning. This was not advertised and was very inconvenient. The AC didn't work in the room. There were lots of mosquitos- we were up for 2 hours in the middle of the night trying to kill them all in our room so we could sleep without them buzzing in our ears and biting us. It was a very loud location, hard to sleep, but you couldn't close the windows because it was hot and the AC didn't work.
