Liked: Location. Its traditional, simple atmosphere, and the decency of the staff.Having fridges is useful if you picnic on vacation quite a bit as I do- and a members' kitchen is good for energetic cooks I suppose.

Disliked: Well it is about a quarter kilometre to the mens loo from Gentileschi, the dorm I was in this time.Ideally I would like them to manage some sort of breakfast.

Liked: It was close proximity to Ponte Vecchio & other famous tourist spots, also just next door is a very nice but small supermarket which keeps everything you'll need.Bathrooms are really clean & nice.

Disliked: The Rooms are Non-AC and during the summer time the rooms get really really hot. Get ready to sleep in a pool of sweat. Apart from a few fans not much is done about the ventilation. Some of the rooms feel like a furnace throughout the day & night. The staff is not very friendly & rooms are closed from 10 a.m - 2 p.m for cleaning , So have to carry around everything you need for those hours,

Liked: Atmosphere was great, I turned up alone and by the first night was drinking with loads of the other people staying there, the kitchen and big common area makes it very easy to meet people. Staff were really chilled.

Disliked: The room could get rather hot at night - though I did stay at the very height of summer, I would have slept better if there was some kind of air con. Also the toilets were a bit of a walk, I thought especially a 22bed room might have its own.

Disliked: Extremely hot during the summer, no Fan. The access to the rooms is a bit complicated if you have big luggage. There is toooo many beds on the rooms, so very reduce personal space.

Liked: The location is perfect. It was close to the main sights. The hostel itself has a lot of character. Staff was really friendly and welcoming and the property was clean throughout. Lockers are available which is always a plus when staying in a hostel. Bedsheets were fresh clean. Kitchen was big enough with all the equipment you need.

Disliked: Perhaps because it is a big hostel with a lot of space people don't talk to each other much so there is not much of an atmosphere there. I'd like to recomment getting another fridge for the kitchen. Also our 10-bed dormitory was very hot as only a simple fen for such a big room was provided which was not sufficient.

Liked: Proximity

Disliked: They lock the rooms at 10:30am. Way to early. Should be at like 11:30am, at least. Most travellers I met do as I do stay up late and sleep in. Only 10% of the pop get up before 10am.
