Score from 670 reviews Good
Steps to the Duomo, helpful and friendly staff, free wine and snacks every night!
There are plug-in mosquitoe repellents in every room that give the hostel an unpleasant smell. And, they don't even work! There were so many mosquitoes it was hard to sleep. I suggested they cut down on the cleaning costs (people come in to mop the floors every day from 11-2:30 so you need to be out of the hostel - quite annoying and not necessary to mop every day) and buy everyone mosquito nets! Wifi was very slow. Kitchen did not have a stove.
I loved everything about this hostel except that it's a bit noisy internally as there's no floor coverings and the floors are tiles or similar. You can easily hear doors banging etc down the corridor and the entry buzzer. Some rugs or carpet would help a lot. Other than that it is great. Fantastic location.
Staff are fantastic - Rosa and Adwin (spelling?) were amazing as were the other people whose names I missed. Highly recommend. Very clean, great location, super safe for solo female travellers, would stay there again. Loved it. Thank you to the staff for helping me having a fantastic stay in florence :)
location is really great. room is very spacy and cozy. the staff is very friendly and helpful.
Great location, perfect service, good breakfast, nice people. You have everything what you need, even makeup zone with big mirror and good light! (girls, note). Good wifi. Very clean. Personal safe and towel. Cozy terrace. The best place to host.
My korean neighbour spoke during sleep. Lol
Good location. Friendly Stuff.
Where to start. The location of the hostel could not have been better, central to the main attractions and close to the station. The staff were friendly and helpful. My wallet got stolen (not in the hostel!) And the staff went above and beyond helping me make a police report and making sure that I was ok! Every night they have free pasta, pizza and wine to get to know other people in the hostel and had a nice common area. The bathroom facilities were reasonably modern and clean and the beds were comfortable.
The WiFi didn't work in my room... #firstworldproblems
The best thing about this hostel is its central location !!
Nothing as such to not like :)
The location is very good. You can see the duomo from the gate. The whole area is clean esp the rooms and the bathrooms which are my main considerations.
i stayed in the private room. it was nice. staff was nice. place was clean. easy to find. (though not that easy if you dont look up the directions ahead of time and just try to go from memory from a map you saw two days before). big enough to have space. small enough to meet cool people. was able to take a quick shower after checkout on day of overnight train. i would stay here again
The staff are very helpful and warm. They take pride in cleaning up the rooms every day. Proactive in helping you to make your stay enjoyable. Food provided is better than what is sold outside. Location is centralised.
Occasionally there are mosquitoes even though there are repellants around.
Very clean, well-organised, extremely friendly and efficient staff (especially Rosa!) Location and facilities excellent - lockable cupboards, torches, partitions between beds, no bunks etc. Wine and pasta provided free each night makes an excellent focus for socialising!
Breakfast OK not brilliant, but hardly a deal-breaker. No significant drawbacks and would certainly return
Good security. Professional, friendly staff. Clean.
Seemed a little expensive.
Friendly staff Cleanliness Simplicity
good amenities, fun happy hour, very very central to EVERYTHING
bed wasn't the most comfortable and the wifi was spotty in rooms
Central location Nice staff Free wine!
Pretty noisy in the mornings due to location Not all bed areas have same amount of space, I was crammed in
A very lovely hostel exactly located in the city center. The staffs are all very nice, and they have some like dinner party for you to make friends here. It is really good for you if you would like to make friends around the world! You don't need to afraid of getting lost and can't back to the hostel since it is just located next to the Florence Cathedral, easy to find!!
When we sleep or go out, our door can not be closed. I felt a little bit insecure.
Large, airy double private room. Bathroom convenient shared with few others. Lots of windows. Location, location, location!
Would have enjoyed a hair dryer, didn't bring my own. Little hot water at times. Beds in Italy are quite hard.
The location was absolutelly perfect! The staff very lovely. They prepare an aperitivo every afternoon that allow people to know and talk.
They were diung works outside and was a bit noisy.
Location was fantastic. Free italian food at 6:30 every night and wine as well.
You need to leave the hostel before 11:30 till 2:30 for the cleaning.
Guests Location Price Breakfast and free pasta evening
The hostel is perfectly located in Florence. Breakfast is included, they offered a Saturday night wine and pasta evening, and the staff is excellent. I even received a requested wake up call.
Creaky floors in the 6 bed mixed dorm, making sleep challenging with 6 people staying there.
