Reviews (8.7 Excellent)
Very nice hostel, good common area, no wait for showers or bathroom, good location. only small drawback is that it is closed every day from 10-2 and there is a lock out curfew
This is a fantastic place to stay in Florence if you are there to sightsee. It is clean, cheap, and very close to all the main attractions. The kitchen could be better, no fridge, and limited cooking facilities. Don’t expect more than what you pay for, basic price means basic facilities, but if you are out sightseeing all day then what does it matter.
Fantastic hostel, the staff were really helpful and location was good.
the hostel was goog, but the welcome was to cold, and the receptionist answers the questions not in a very nice manner, but it is okay, it is clean and you should remember to take a lock with you for your locker. A good thing is that they have a kitchen
One of the best hostels I have ever been. Situated in the meaddle of "centro storico" of Florence it is really easy to find and practical if you want to turn back late at night. The staff is really nice and the place so clean.
