Liked: It was clean, beds were comfortable. Wifi and a/c were a bonus.

Disliked: There was rarely someone at the front desk to help with anything. Also even when they weren't there the front door was left unlocked, which seemed somewhat unsafe.

Liked: There was free WiFi and no bunks. It was generally a clean, neat hostel to stay in and the staff when we checked in were helpful and gave us maps of Florence

Disliked: The bathrooms were not always clean and the main bathroom on the ground floor did not have a good drain so there was usually water all the over the floor in the bathroom.

Liked: One kitchen per floor is very helpful, the room was very comfortable and the bathrooms are great too. Looks like a hotel than a hostel, then you know less people, but the staff is very attentive.

Disliked: A pity not to have computers for Internet use.

Liked: AIr conditioning! July was hot this summer! It was a bit noisy at night in my room, but nice and cool. Can come and go as you please. Met other travelers, good fun.

Disliked: No lockers, my pet peeve. Bit of a hike from the station with a pack, about 10-15 mins... but not too bad. My room was on top floor under roof, toilets were low sloping roof and hot.
