Liked: The property is located in the center of the city. If you are using Mega bus or other buses to go to Florence, this property is 7 minutes from the bus stop. If you arrive early you can enter the building and leave your stuff. There is cooking equipment available at the hostel so you can cook easily.

Disliked: There is no reception during the night. So unless you arrive between 09.00-5.00 pm you wont find anyone. It is however possible to check in your self as they will leave you a key at the reception.

Liked: Great location as is walking distance to the station and all landmarks . Is also located near many cheap places to eat out .

Disliked: I would not recommend this hostel for lone travellers looking to make friends . I stayed in a private room with a friend and rarely saw anyone else at this hostel as it is quite small and doesn't have a common area. Staff do not speak a word of English and are hard to find . I had blood on my blanket when I arrived and had to wait for the following day to locate a staff member . The staff member then didn't speak a work of English so I had to use google translate to ask for a new clean blanket.

Liked: O hostel é bem simples, quartos igualmente e o positivo é que fica muito bem localizado. Entretanto, as camas e a limpeza do ambiente deixam a desejar. As camas fazem ruido e tanto eu como minha amiga passamos a noite nos coçando com prováveis ácaros ou outro bichinho típico de instalações não mto bem higienizadas. Vc paga pela toalha, pelo ar condicionado, faltou papel no banheiro e o wifi quase não pega.

Disliked: comentarios acima.
