Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    This is the most beautifully designed, well kept, fun and in general - best hostel in Florence. The price is good for the standards of the city, which means that anything cheaper won’t be worth the money. Apart from that, there is a free welcome drink and lots of other free goodies during your stay. However, the kindness, the friendliness and the professionalism of the staff is priceless. This all results with a great social connection between all the guests. I highly recommend it!

    Stable and comfortable bed, with shelf, night light and power socket. In a dormitory there are a toilet room and a shower room, both with basins, and there are extra bathrooms outside the rooms. No queues at all. The best shower I've ever seen in a hostel. Big and safe lockers. Towel included in the price. In general a good and clean hostel, it looks like a hotel converted to hostel.

    It was very nice for a hostel. I was expecting bunk beds but everyone had single beds and there were only two other beds in my room (plus two in a loft above), one of which was empty. The staff were very helpful and the location was great. I would definitely reccommend to anyone looking for cheap accommodation.
