Liked: This is a wonderful little hostel, the staff were great and gave us everything that we wanted. We had a private room which was really spacious and the beds were made everyday. The shower was hot and powerful, there were towels and also shower gel and a skin in the bedroom. Overall, it was one of the best hostels i have stayed in and i have travelled all over asia, australsia and Europe. Well Done.

Disliked: I didnt dislike anything

Liked: There was a sink and lockers in the room, breakfast was not extravegant but there was toast provided. The location was great, although in a bit of a seedy area, just a few minutes' walk from everything that matters.

Disliked: You couldn't control the heat in your room; the owners had to use a remote to turn it on. We had guys from reception barging in on us (a room full of girls) at all hours checking to see if the heat was okay; once when nearly everyone was sleeping. The owners were brusque and not very friendly, although that may just be Italians in general.

Liked: -la localisation de l' hostel au coeur de la ville: tout pres de la place du dome et seulement a 10-15min a pied de la gare centrale de Florence-la gentillesse des proprio Francesco et Magda : il m'ont vraiment bien conseille sur les meilleurs endroits a visiter et les bons endroits ou manger. A chaque fois ils ont vise juste. Accueil superbe de leur part. Merci-le cadre et l' amenagement /decoration de l' hostel qui fait penser que l'on est dans l'appartement particulier que dans un hostel. tres sympa-un bon petit dej pour 2,50e

Disliked: -pas pratique: deux wc seulement dont un avec l unique douche pour 3 dortoirs de 4pers, mais c est plus un detail -pas de possibilite d'utiliser la cuisine
