Liked: The location is very convenient and the staff very accommodating.

Disliked: The heating is centralized, so even though the room felt cold we couldn't do anything about it, and while there is heat in the room the bathroom is not heated.

Liked: The location was amazing so close to Old Town and within short walk to the cathedral. Pretty good facility for the price.

Disliked: It seems there is only one bathroom (at least if you opt for the shared bathroom room) shared among other travellers and there is a policy for 10 minutes bathroom use only.

Liked: Very clean, comfortable and peaceful hostel. Staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were excellent. Best location in Florence and not too much noise off the street.

Disliked: No kitchen facilities or breakfast provided so you will need to keep that into consideration if budgeting. Internet dropped out a few times but not too difficult to get it working again. No communal area.

Liked: open airy room. small hostel meant that the shared bathrooms were not too busy. Location was superb although being so close to the action meant loud street sweepers early in the morning.

Disliked: kitchen was being renovated when we were there so couldn't be accessed. there was no real communal area to sit and have a chat.

Liked: Excellent location! Right in the heart of Florence. No A/C, but the room had a fan, which was fine. For 5 Euro they will do your laundry!! (wash and hang dry). This was an amazing, and needed, service for us. The common bathrooms are kept very clean. There is wifi and a computer available for use (free).

Disliked: Nothing to dislike.

Liked: Amazing location. 15 min walk to train station. Smack in between Uffizi, Academia, Duomo, and Pitti Palace. They cooked you an American style breakfast with a ham sandwich and omelets every morning! (for 2.50 Euro), although the breakfast did end early (9:30am). Individual shower Staff was very nice - cooked me breakfast even when I was late, and lent me an extra towel for free.

Disliked: Kicked you out every day between 10am and 2pm; they also turned off wifi then. Insanely slow computer.

19 July 2011 Andrew would recommend this property

Liked: Excellent location, right in old town. The pair that was running the place setup breakfast and actually offer to cook things for you, rather than just setting out the usual breads and jams. Room had ceiling fan!

Disliked: No air conditioning, which was a little warm in the 100degF (38degC) weather, Rooms overlooking street can be very loud early in the morning when all the supply trucks and cleaning trucks go by.
