Liked: The price was good, and the location too. Good value for your money.

Disliked: I felt itchy after waking up from sleeping in this hostel. I also had a few bites on my body, but I cannot be sure where these came from.

Travel Type:
As a family with children

Trip Type:
Family Holiday

Liked: Good location, good sized rooms and good clean facilities.

Disliked: We visited in September and it was still hot but staff refused to give us remote to turn on air con as 'there is no air con in September'. The staff seemed uninterested or concerned. The alternative to sweating it out in a steam room was openning the window without fly screens and letting in millions of Mosquitos (the whitewashed walls have blood marks from previous squashed biters) - not a new problem in Florence. Our family of kids got very little sleep and paid the price with many welts the next day. Simple and cheap fly mesh or understanding staff would have got this place 5 stars.

Liked: Good location 10 minutes walk from train station. Only problem is you cannot take bus FROM train station, only TO train station. This is Florence problem not Ciao hostel problem. Very modern hostel, good common space and full kitchen, three keys for security, helpful staff. Highly recommend.

Disliked: Rooms on street side are pretty noisy in the morning from traffic, ask for back room.

Liked: Clean, not too expensive and provided twin rooms which can be hard to find in Florence

Disliked: It was quite a walk from the main sights and attractions and had NO atmosphere! This is a hotel-style place where you share the bathroom. Not a hostel.
