Liked: The staff are brilliant and really friendly. There was a great atmosphere and free food and wine every evening. The beds are great, no bunkbeds!

Disliked: The only downsides were having to leave the hostel between 11-14:30 every day while they cleaned it and the sometimes really slow wifi.

Liked: I like the location... Right at the center of everything, very convenient and easy access. I also love the cleanliness and all the very nice music that the staff played... Really very relaxing and wonderful;))

Disliked: The only things that I dislike is the internet connection in the room which is unreliable and also the amount of mosquito in the room and at the reception and kitchen... In fact, everywhere in the hostel... Though they did put up the mosquito repellant but it doesn't seem to help;((( so if you are going to stay here, please bring some mosquito spray/patch... For a more comfortable stay...

Liked: The staff was really friendly and helpful, the free aperitivo (wine and snack) that they organised every night brought guests to the terrace and it was easy to get to know other people. The hostel was really clean, everyone got their own flashlight, there was free luggage storage, felt really safe and nice. Location is absolutely the best in Florence and breakfast was pretty good as well, especially liked the fruit salad. Definitely the best hostel I've been to, felt like home and I would like to go back :) Thanks for an awesome stay!

Disliked: No sunlight in the rooms as the windows are covered with blinds (probably it is possible to open them, but I did not try). There could also be a power outlet next to each bed to make it perfect.
