18 November 2010 John would recommend this property

Liked: Great location in the heart of the city, very close to major attractions, not far from central train station (and they, for a change when it comes to Italian hostels, give good directions on the site). Breakfast is a great value at 2.50 for scrambled eggs, toast, cereal, fruit etc. The rooms are good sizes, the beds are comfortable, and it's a cool and laid back vibe.

Disliked: Do note that you are right in the heart of the city and therefore if your room overlooks the street be prepared for drunken idiots yelling and singing at 1 am on a Wednesday. Also, please get more room keys. Having just one per room is kind of inconvenient and makes me slightly uneasy about leaving my belongings in the room without locking them up, again, in my own bag.

Liked: Magdalena & Francesco are very nice and so friendly. They helped us out with parking, brought our luggage to the hostel on the first floor, told us very useful information about Florence. Furthermore, we brought one notebook by ourselves, so that we could surf internet conveniently for hours, because they offered access point to its wireless LAN as well. Great job and great breakfast.

Disliked: no elevator, but they helped us a lot

Liked: It was in such a great location.. loved it!! it's only about a 10min walk to the train station and if you don't want to walk there is a bus right outside the hostel that will take you there for free. There are some awesome gelati shops and restaurants very close by. The hostel was older but it was good cause it felt like i was at home :) The rooms were massive and the beds were very comfortable and clean. The staff were very nice and helpful and always accommodating.

Disliked: NOTHING!!! AWESOME HOSTEL!!!!

Liked: A nice small but comfortable hostel which was very welcoming, small enough to have a "family" atmosphere- an excellent place to stay for good sleep and to enjoy the city sights due to its location. I'm totally satisfied with the service and cleanliness. Magdalena and Francesco are lovely. Just make sure you book ahead!

Liked: The room was by far the nicest we stayed in on our trip, more like a hotel than a hostel. Not really any facilities, but right in the centre of town and the rooms more than made up for it.
