Liked: Simple hotel. Location is quite far away from attraction. But a good 15 min walk will get you to the old city. It really is great value for money.

Lachlan Preston

04 October 2009 Lachlan would recommend this property

Liked: Only a short walk from Santa Maria Novella train station which is the main one in Florence. Property was clean and bedrooms were in really good condition, with TV's with channels including MTV, CNN and NBC. Kitchens were great with stoves, microwaves etc and very clean.Also a nice outdorr area. Not such a good place to meet other tourists, as it is more like communal apartments, but still plenty of tourists are there too.

Disliked: Lachlan left no negative feedback.

Andrew Macpherson

23 September 2009 Andrew would recommend this property

Liked: Very clean hostel, more like an apartment than a hostel environment. No communal area to socialise and no internet point other than wi fi. Excellent cooking facilites and flat screen televisons in all rooms wih english channels. Good location, but wouldnt stay again due to lack of fun. Perfect for older travellers.

Customer review

18 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very close to the historic centre of Florence & Santa Maria Novella Station, so no need for public transport. The room was spacious and airy, but situated next to a busy road, which made it a little difficult to get to sleep at night. The staff were very relaxed and friendly, letting us leave our bags at the hostel for the day when we checked out, and although the room wasn't ensuite, the shared bathroom was fine. A great place to stay in Florence.
