Liked: It was clean and the staff was friendly. It was also conveniently located walking distance from most landmarks.

Disliked: The hand towels in the bathroom were always wet from multiple use. It would be great if they had a shelf with extra or an alternative hand drying method.

Liked: The staff was always so friendly and attentive, they were always willing to help and gave extra tips for the city. The hostel is really close to everything by foot. Breakfast was great and they even put more food during the day.The rooms were really clean and nice. The girl from the desk even offered me to change to a girl dorm as the other one were only boys. It was definitely a great stay at Florence

Liked: There s always food and beverage going on for the guests to take.

Disliked: When i got there i got a very bad attitude from the receptionist ( the blond one with blue eyes and eagleish nose). She was very rude and authoritative with someone who had got there very tired from a long trip: me. Also i then asked her for a recomendation of where to have a meal nearby and sent me for a 15 minute walk. Brought my concept of the place very down, considering how cool the place is. It s a real pitty.

Liked: The access to refreshments and food all day. Great internet connection. AC in every room. Clean bedrooms and bathrooms. Perfect location between centre and train station.

Disliked: The staff were very abrupt - especially the girl I checked in (blonde hair). Quite rude to be honest. Kind of cast the hostel in a bad light from the get go.
