  • Centrally located, a decent price, and good amenities. Antonio, the owner, is a gem and will happily recommend sights in the city, where to get groceries, etc. My roommates were fine folks and I had a great time going out with them at night. Free breakfast is a good bonus, as were the computers with internet.

  • I spent 4 nights at Emerald Palace and it was great! The staff was very helpful and friendly. You can easily reach most attractions by foot from there.

  • Hostel is located in the middle of a VERY noisy market that has street sweepers at 11pm, and loud banging starting at 6am!! The hostel falsely advertises, what you book is not what get! I booked a 3-bed female dorm and was put into a 5-bed mixed dorm. When I complained I was told to go somewhere else! I had already spent two nights there in a private before this! The workers are very rude and the breakfast is bread and butter. Too many other great hostel choices in Florence to ever stay here!
