Because we are just young and have backpacks, no elevator was not big deal. But. somebody who interest in Il Ghiro should consider stairs.
First, staffs are very kind! Location is very nice. Just a few blocks from SMN station. And there are laundromats, trattoria, supermarkets around Il Ghiro. Wi-fi works well in room #2.

Wifi was sometimes poor in our room, kitchen should be better equipped. The gas stove had problem sometimes. But overall not a big problem.
Very good location. Friendly staff. Nice room, clean bathroom, very comfy bed. Great value for the money we've paid, fully recommend!

I don't care, but eldery people should note that they don't have a lift to 4th floor.
They have almost everything we need for stay of a couple of nights.

-We arrived late. Although we received instructions, we had problems getting into the room. Luckily, other guests opened the door for us. -No elevator. -In Room 5, when people use the public bathroom and kitchen, it is very noisy. The front door of the guesthouse also makes a lot of noise. -The heating was off in the night we stayed and it was very very cold.
-The staff is helpful. I think he is trying to make our stay comfortable, but the facility (esp for the triple room) needs improvement. -The kitchen and coffee maker is good -Location is close to the train station

The receptionist is a nice guy.....

No Elevator, but this is not big problem. The staff help us carrying luggage.
The location is not far from the train station and the hot spot. The room is clear and comfortable. All the facility is good and just like back home. We could use kitchen & washing machine. And the staff is really nice, friendly, and helpful. Good place to stay.

It is on the fourth floor, there is only stairs but no elevator. If you have heavy luggage with you, you may have to consider those stairs.
Location is really convenient, it is near the train station, and walking distance to the Florence Cathedral. Staff are friendly

El cuarto era muy caluroso y HABIA CHINCHES EN LA CAMA. Mi esposa sufrio casi 200 picaduras!!!! Que aun tiene. It is not recomended!! In bed bedbugs that were horribly damaged skin, this speaks to a lack of cleaning in place!!!
Amabilidad de los recepcionistas

it's on the fourth floor without elevator. i have to carry 20kg luggage up myself since i arrived after 6pm...
it's just two streets away from the SMN train station. There is one supermarket nearby. They provide kitchen, pot, dishes, coffee machine and kettle. The room is tidy.

Although it's close to railway station, it's not easy to find, no obvious sign. The big problem is no lift available. We arrived very late and the staff was off duty. We two girls moved two big and heavy baggages to the 4th floor......a huge task. Fortunately the staff helped on the suitcases when we leave.
Five minutes walk from railway station and price is attractive. It's more like private apartment, very warm and comfortable. Wifi is strong, room is quite big compared to other European hostel.

- Nice Kitchen - Helpful staff who picked our bags up to the 4th stairs - nice advice about tours - reasonable price

Homely. Good location. Clean facilities.

The wifi was a little weak in the room but was alright as we didn't needed it that much.
One of the things we like about staying here is because of the location. It's so close to everything and we ate at the Market Central everyday. Also a nice grocery store nearby. Stefeno and Paola are extremely friendly and supplied us with info we needed to pounce around the area. Very clean place! Thanks!

Nothing. We were really pleased with this place!
Close to station, restaraunts, shops, grocery stores and main tourist attractions. Room was quiet and bed was comfy. There was also a kitchen space in the shared area as well as coffee making facilities and a computer. Wifi signal was good in the room. Would recommend this guest house and stay here again.

It would be nice if they would give directions on how to use the washer :) Seems like it might get broken pretty quickly with a bunch of people trying to use it. I googled the words that I didn't understand and was able to get it working. Hostel is on the 4th floor and there is not an elevator. That can be tiresome, especially if you climb the 500+ stairs to the dome and 400+ to the bell tower all in the same day!
Staff was very friendly and helpful. It was nice to be able to wash laundry and dry on their line. Close to train station and the heart of Florence. 10 min walk to the cathedral, bell tower, dome.

There is no elevator. It was no problem for us. We had hand luggages.
Very good location and quitebedroom.

Having stayed before I had expectations and I was disappointed by given an inside room right next to the common area which was noisy at night.
Located near to the station with very friendly and helpful staff.Easy to walk around Florence, very close to non traffic lanes.Street and food markets very close.Good security
