  • Simply excellent! Possibly the best location money can buy in Firenze. Not only is it just a minute's walk away from the city centre; it is also only 5-10 minutes from some of my favourite places in the city. The rooms are huge (and don't have bunk beds), lockers are provided and the cleanliness is impeccable. The only thing I would worry about is staying here in the summer or whenever it is more fully booked, as there are only two toilets. All in all - definitely my first choice if I come back!

  • It was great! They did wine and pasta or pizza every evening, it was a great opportunity to meet other people staying in the hostel. We travelled as a group of 7 people (18-24 years) and felt this hostel was perfect for us. There were no loud noises allowed on the patio in the late evening, but that was fine because we'd rather be out exploring the streets of Florence anyway! Our room was huge, the hostel was right in the heart of Florence and was an authentic Italian building. Loved it!

  • Place was very difficult to find. We walked by it 5 times before someone finally called and walked us there. Location was pretty good, close to duomo and walking distance to most everything. Facilities were average, and staff seemed pretty stoned. A little overpriced for what we got (2 people, one private room), but the convenience of location made up for it.
