Liked: It had a lot of character! It was so nice and open. The kitchen and dining/relaxation area were exactly what you need.

Disliked: The rooms got ridiculously hot at night. Not unbearable, but hot. Also the bunk rooms power points were all in one corner of the room.

Liked: This is the best hostel I’ve been to in the last 10 years. Why?1. It’s super cheap. 2. It’s not hospital clean, but it’s clean enough to enjoy sleeping. The sheets are super clean though and super white. It smells a bit damp in general to the building structure, but it feels great to be in such a place in Florence to feel the authenticity of the building. I mean, if you want a high-tech recently-built place, go to Dubai, not Firenze (Florence). 3. The staff is amazing. All of them are super nice, friendly, caring, helping, etc etc etc. I don’t know them all by names but I remember Juliano who really help me out a lot on my last day that I had some problems with the post office, etc. 4. The common rooms like the dinning room, kitchen, terrace are really good places to meet new people. You can cook in the kitchen, use the computers, and everything. 5. It’s so convenient to stay there for even a long time (I stayed for 11 nights). The only thing one might complain is that from 10 to 14 you can’t go back to your room for the cleaning which is OK compared to all these good things I’ve just mentioned. Well, when can they clean then? So, don’t complain, and enjoy your stay.

Liked: The location was great, very close to all the attractions. The vendor machines have excellent prices, badly I noticed that on my last day!! For example a water is only 50 cents. The rooms are big and the staff is sure that only guest access the interior.

Disliked: That you can't be there for four hours, so you really have to have something to do which is easy, during this time.

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.
