Liked: The staff is great! They're friendly, helpful and welcoming. The price was great and had great working wifi. The amenities offered for the cost is a great value. My friend and I stayed during a time when they weren't completely full, so they upgraded my reservation for free so that she and I could stay in the same room. We even had the room to ourselves the first night! The hostel is not far at all from one of the train stations which was nice.

Disliked: It's not close to the city center so going out at night takes some planning.

Liked: Because I booked through Hostelbookers, they upgraded us for no charge to a private ensuite room! Awesome! Very clean, hostel with extremely friendly and helpful staff! Great outside common area, breakfast was good for the price too. Location is a little bit outside of city center, but it's a beautiful walk and it's nice to be a bit away from the throngs of tourists. Extremely easy to reach the hostel by bus though if you don't want to walk.

Disliked: No kitchen

Liked: The room was simple but clean. The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was exactly what we needed- a cheep, clean place to stay while we were in Florence.

Disliked: One night there was no hot water in the shower and another the light in the bathroom didn't work. The hostel was a twenty minute busride from the center, but the bus came pretty often so it wasn't so bad.

Liked: Awesome atmosphere! Loved the dinner buffets every night, a great way to meet people when travelling solo. Also appreciated that there were both shared ablutions and private ones, so if the private bathroom is in use you don't have to wait! Staff were friendly and helpful.

Disliked: It was a little far from the town centre but it's a nice walk if you're not in a rush. Otherwise it was easily accessible by bus or train.

Liked: Good atmosphere, and the dinner buffet was a good deal.

Disliked: The breakfast buffet was terrible, and the shower was incredibly tiny, making one wonder why they decided to install a bidet rather than using that space for a shower large enough for an adult to turn around in.

Liked: Loved the size and atmosphere of the place. Great outside area with cheap drinks at the bar. All you can eat dinner + a wine for 7 euro! not bad.

Disliked: The bathroom was not so great (cramped space and a little unclean), the breakfast was not worth getting and the room was very hot at night despite the fan running. All fairly minor things though.

Liked: This hostel was okay-- it has big rooms and computers for people to use. it also offers a lot of social scene, with a bar, etc.

Disliked: The tint bathroom, which reminded me of airplane toiletts, was disgusting. It has a distinct odor, and maybe it is just old, but they should rennovate very soon. And the fan was also not working, so it was hard to sleep at night (Italy is disgustingly hot in Aug). The door knob fell when I tried to open the door because the key wouldn't go through. The entire place is too out of date. Also, i expected a lot for brekfast since it was 5 euros, but it was nothing special. So if yiu add the breakfast and bus tickets on top od the hostel, it really is not that cheap. i recommend finding something near the center.

Liked: Good place to stay clean, well equipped rooms (desk, wardrobe, bed side light, fan, shower etc ), free internet and computer (but slow), comfortable beds, quite at night time and the property is made of stone so it is cool which is great as Florence is very hot in the summer. it is also a good location as only 15 minutes by bus 17 to centre which run till past midnight!

Liked: This hostel is one of the largest I've stayed at but the atmosphere was still welcoming and friendly. We had a double room with private bathroom and everything was clean and satisfactory. This is definitely one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. The facilities the hostel offered were also very good, especially the options to have breakfast and dinner there. I would really recommend staying here!

Disliked: The only issue is the distance from the centre of Florence, it's about a 30 minute walk but not a bad one! The other option is the bus from outside the hostel which was fast and frequent into the centre.

Liked: This hostel, while being a bit removed from Florence, was a clean, friendly place to stay. There was a bar outside, and a market right next door to buy snacks! We really liked our experience there, it was a good place to sleep at the end of a long day of culture.

Disliked: The only thing that was a bit rough was the bathroom situation- sometimes the bathrooms weren't that clean and it's a communal bathroom for the whole floor.

Liked: The electronic security boxes are useful to store your valuables which does not require a key just a code that you create on your own. We stayed in a private double bed room and it was cleaned daily. No lock out/curfew.

Disliked: The other hostellers can be quite clique-ish but then again they might have travelled together. The toilet can be quite smelly but mostly bearable. The location wasn't unbearably remote but it seems a bit unfair and profit minded to charge for breakfast.

Liked: Loved the fact that it was quiet and close to the best gelato I have ever had. the staff were lovely and the food at the all you can eat buffet was delicious.

Disliked: the rooms did not have lockers - there was a small one you could use downstairs but my laptop didnt fit inside. also the door to the room unlocked with a key, if another person in the room forgot to lock it it was open and anyone could walk in.
