Toilets Location Big and Room clean with individual cabinet to let our things. Afternoon free appetizer Good kitchen
Cold water to shower (they explain ecological reasons to set Water at maximum 45ºC but the waste of water waiting it get warm is much more critic to me) too soft mattress (very personal opinion)
I am very satisfied with my time spent in Academy Hostel in Florence. it is located in the center of the city - 10 minutes far from the train station, 1 minute far from the Duomo. All main sights are in walking distance from the hostel. The staff was very helpful (many thanks to Edwin). By and large, everything was cool. if i decide to visit Florence again, i will definitely stay in Academy Hostel.
Staff were really nice, the free pasta and wine evening is a good way to meet new people! The breakfast was great especially the fresh fruit salad! A great location for visiting Florence
Wifi too slow!! Had to wait quite often for the shower/ toilet room to free up, it was always busy in the morning! Would be better if rooms had a sink at least for brushing teeth and a toilet separate from the shower!
the single room was too small and it was too noisy out of the window with some machine noise maybe air conditioner.the hot water stopped during the shower which caused me to get cold, and the Wi-Fi was so unstable.
Very clean beds and rooms and all the facility. Very nice staffs. Free towel. Free breakfast--as much as u want to eat. Free happy hour: 6:30-- I got pizza and wine! :) It was truely wonderful.
My radiator didn't work so my room was bit cold. They gave me extra blanket. One of shower booth, unable to use hot water so check before you use (they say you should wait 1 min to get hot water but one of the shower room definitely didn't let me use hot water--I waited like 3 min, I could use extremely hot water for 30 secs, and then freaking cold water after that. This phase was repeated. Other shower room was fine. Just check before u use).
Everything was great! The location, the friendly and very helpful staff. The hostel was super clean, you get free towels and shampoo; very good breakfast, and I especially liked the aperitivo time with free wine and pasta or snacks in the evening. Very, very well organized.
The entrance to the bathroom was from the hall, so some people from other rooms were using it too, no matter that it was meant for our room (5 bed dorm) only. A key may solve the problem.
there is only 2 washing and dry mashine. Even 1 is broken! I think need more laundry mashine.
Perfect location right next to the duomo and half way to accademia. Lovely staff with free wine and pasta in the evenings. Large rooms and bathrooms. Free computers as well and book sharing. Great place to meet people.
Great location (almost next to Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore). Clean room. Friendly and supportive staff. Free towel.
WiFi connection was too bad. (but we can use shared PCs, which helps me a lot.)
Nothing to really dislike
good place:near the duomo
hot shower is not always possible. boil sysyem didnot work well. i wait more than 30miniutes for hot water but it did not come. i have to take a cold shower then i got a cold.
the location is excellent, with friendly staff, wify everywhere, warm and powerful shower, energetic atmosphere, what else you can ask for? highly recommended for young travelers.
Great location; free breakfast, pasta & wine at night; the kitchen and vending machines are useful; we never had to queue for the bathroom as we shared it with only one other room.
Our room was very cold while we were there (6 nights, end of October). There was no heating & no duvets on the bed, you only get a sheet and thin cover that provides no warmth.There are no curtains at the window which makes it feel colder. We had to ask for extra blankets & bought thick socks and jumpers to wear at night, but we didn't sleep well all week.
Ideal location, give towel, full number of services, provide with a breakfast and even with a small "welcome" dinner.
The only issue I had was the fact that the hot water wasn't consistent and sometimes there just wasn't any at all.
Perfect cheap stay in Florence just over the corner of Duomo! Inside: very nice and friendly personal, which can help you in any question, even where to go to eat or for party :) nice breakfast, and snacks at 6 (like vine and pasta). Sleeping part is very good too: big rooms with separate beds. I had great time in this hostel! Next time I'll chose this one, definitely :)
Very long cleaning time, (from 11-14) hostel closed
Location was excellent - just around the corner from the Duomo!
Got a bit cold but heating wasn't on
The staff I met was friendly, helpful and spoke good English. The hostel's location couldn't be better. The room was clean and safe and the shower was better than in hotels I've stayed in before. There were enough blankets to avoid getting cold at night. Will definitely stay here again when I come back to Firenze, this was a very pleasant stay!
Some noise from people in other rooms at night.
Location Free aperitivo All round good hostel Helpful staff Great vibe
I like the open, clean, and big rooms. Bathrooms were updated and clean to use
Some mosquitoes were in the area which needs to be careful if you open your windows.
Staying at the Academy hostel has tremendously exceed my expectations. It is not really a hostel, feels more like a family-like B&B. Great and relaxed vibes.
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.
