  • The location was great and the hostel seemed really secure with lockers to keep the important stuff which I really liked. The staff was great, and overall a good experience.

  • Very clean and comfortable hostel. Good location as well. Really friendly staff, but while some people at the reception spoke perfect English, others didn't speak any English.

  • Staff was awesome, breakfast was appreciated but the wifi was iffy in the room we were put in. SUPER clean and nice though so that really wasn't an issue.

  • From what I saw, it was quite nice. However, I came relatively late and left before breakfast, so I didn't get the full experience. The room was slightly stuffy (especially in the upstairs bit), but overall very nice. The bathrooms were very nice - clean and new looking, with strong shower pressure.

  • It is up three - four flights of stairs (depending on where the room is) but the building is in the perfect location, steps away from the central market and vendor markets. There are small lockers outside the room but I didn't use them because everything was safe. The people who stayed at the hostel were great and the hosts were amazing.

  • The staff was friendly and Antonio was able to point out good places to go in Florence. The room we stayed in had an amazing view and the rooms were very nice. I would stay there again. The only problem we had was going up to our room at night the lights in the stairs didn't turn on. Other than that it was a great place to stay with a great atmopsphere.

  • I loved this hostel! The environment was charming and homey, and the location was perfect. I recommend this hostel to anyone who wants a peaceful night's sleep more than a hopping late-night scene. There are lockers outside the rooms to store things but I felt safe just keeping mine under the bed. I've no complaints but FYI: There was a breakfast provided, but not very filling; there was a computer but with very slow internet; and the hostel is up a couple flights of stairs, without an elevator.
