Liked: Pleasant atmosphere, you could control the thermostat in your own room, lots of computer access and a pretty darn good complimentary breakfast, also a cheap restaurant in the hostel.

Disliked: The bathrooms were never well stocked with toilet paper. This problem is surprisingly more detrimental than it may sound.

Liked: Breakfast buffet and also dinner inclusive, definitely good value for money. Spacious balcony where people can hang out. Good location, close to stazione centrale and bus station.

Disliked: Internet very slow especially after the evening when everyone is back to the hostel. Staff are rather cold when they answer your question, it's understandable because it's a big hostel and you can imagine they have to handle a big load of questions everyday, of course they give simple answer. Volumn of other guests in the balcony was a bit loud at night.

Liked: Great location (and directions to get there!) Very helpful, caring staff. Great breakfast selection (even if it was a little strange...maybe some people like potato chips with their eggs! ;) Very clean accommodations.

Disliked: The only (very, very minor) thing I'd suggest for the property is to provide bathmats. The floor gets soaked and slippery after people shower.

Liked: Comprehensive breakfast, sufficient space in the room, plug point for each bed, enough locker space, great location

Disliked: Wifi is spotty at best and did not work in quite a few spots in the hostel which made it a little to plan travels in the city; the sheer size of the hostel can possibly make it a little difficult to meet people since the hostel is almost like a small neighborhood.

Liked: This is my second time staying at this place. Their rooms are clean. Good beds. Ended up with a five instead of a six bedroom. Huge lockers. Awesome free buffet breakfast ranging from oats fruits and veggies for the healthy to biscuits and cookies for the coffee drinkers. The internet gets slow at night but atleast it makes it to the rooms. There's even a desktop in the room but we didn't use it. Thoughtful though. The kitchen/cleaning ladies here work so hard - breakfast then cleaning then dinner - so be nice to them and don't leave lots of junk!

Disliked: A shower mat would have made a bit of a difference. Common area seats are too rough for hours of lounging waiting to check in though.

Liked: The location is great for getting to all the sights for Florence. A short walk from the train station and close to a grocery store as well. The murals and statues add to the charm of the place. Since there was no kitchen to cook your meals it was nice that the Restaurant had good food, for very low prices.

Disliked: The buffet breakfast left a little to be desired. Food like wieners and saurkraut, pickles, chips, cookies aren't what I call breakfast food. There were a few egg items, some cold cereal and some cut up fruit, so enough if you didn't want any of the lunch items served for breakfast.

Liked: It was a great location. Very near to the train station. The staff was fine. I was changed from a 4-5 person room to a single. This was fine, however it seemed to have been a storage room that was repurposed. As such there were no electrical outlets in the room. The shower was in the back of a restroom everyone in the hostel used. It didn't seem really dirty, but still made me a little uncomfortable. The breakfast was very big and nice to have. However it consisted of all sorts of strange foods. Still, better than none. The wifi worked fine, which is a big plus.

Liked: Firstly, the hostel has a 24 hour reception, which is great if you're going to be arriving late into the city. I had stayed at a few other hostels before coming here and this was the only hostel with a hot and cold water dispenser, instant noodles for sale, and some other kinds of snacks. so you need not worry about being hungry in the night. They also provide a fridge which you can store your own stuff in (eg. A bottle of wine you bought at the supermarket) but this fridge is a communal fridge located right next to the luggage room and not inside your own room. But it's good enough. They also have a few computers which you can use to book your trains, flights, and do check-in. The reception can print stuff for you if needed (20cents a page). The rooms are very clean and spacious enough to accommodate the number of people allocated to that room (I stayed in a 8 bed room and I found it spacious). There are big lockers in the room as well, so you can keep all your baggage in there and lock it. The beds are comfy and the sheets are clean, I had no problems sleeping. The best thing about my stay was probably the free breakfast buffet we enjoyed every morning. The hostel provides an excellent selection of hot and cold breakfast foods, coffee, tea, juices, yogurt, gelato(!!!) and even, tiramisu. Basically the breakfast kept me going throughout the day when I was walking around the city, and I could even skip lunch. Needless to say, I highly recommend this hostel to other travellers on a budget. Very very very value for money. I cannot stress this enough.

Liked: I loved the buffet breakfast, so many options and good food! I loved the property it is huge and has a great layout and outside space. It's close to the train station and the city sights, such a great choice. I would definitely go back.

Disliked: I paid for a 4 person room and it was a 5 which is not fair and the bottom beds for the bunks pull out your hair because there are things sticking out and the outlet beside my bed didn't work, but it was only my bunk the other ones worked.

Liked: It was close to the train station and had a free and very delicious breakfast

Disliked: The staff was not helpful at all, they did not seem to enjoy their job. It was ridiculous that you had to show your room key everytime you entered the building. The shower was with the toilet and made it hard for 9 girls to share one bathroom. Also, the shower made the floor soaked which made the entire hostel very dirty.
