Liked: Very clean rooms and bathrooms, comfortable bed. City center is within walking distance.

Disliked: Very noisy during the night, because of busy street. The staff barely speaks English and wasn't very helpful. There's no kitchen or at least electric kettle to boil water, just microwave in the corridor. Additional city tax was not mentioned when booking.

Liked: Loved everything about this place, from the room, to the choice of bathroom in the morning and evening, to the friendly and stupidly helpful staff. We arrived late having rocked up at Camp di Marte instead of SNM and had to taxi it over, that was the end of the bad times in Florence, mainly as this place was so amazing. Short walk from the train station (it overlooks the tracks) and about 15 mins to the Duomo. The breakfasts were the most unique ever - a pear tart for breakfast, it might well catch on!

Disliked: nothing

Liked: big rooms, balcony, we had 3 of the rooms for our group and the other 2 weren't occupied so it was basically like our own private apartment. we also enjoyed the espresso vending machine.

Disliked: as noted, it is a bit noisy due to traffic, but as long as you are prepared for that it's fine.

Liked: It was very close to the train station, which is good.

Disliked: We were in a room that was facing the street and it was noisy. Not only that it was above a cafe that turned into a club at night, so it was very noisy.

Liked: The property had a very homely feel about it, Jonathan was very helpful and always cheerful. Polly thought the flat was very clean and convenient. The property had a good location to the town and train station.

Disliked: The view was not super but the views in the city more than make up for it. The windows do not stop the sounds of the road, but you get used to it quickly. We were aware of the sound from the other reviews and took the chance. We were glad because of the other plus points.

Liked: PERFECT Location, really nice yard outside, and nice rooms. For a really good price. I would go back if I go to Verona again. Cosy rooms.

Disliked: No aircondition. Not a pefect breakfast but standard in Italy. We had to wait before they came and let us in. But it hapend to us everytime in Italy, it was a nice restaurant outside so we just spend out time there.

07 July 2011 Alicia would recommend this property

Liked: The staff member who checked us in, although spoke more Spanish than anything, was extremely nice and helpful. He informed us of our location and the locations of important landmarks and ways to get around the city. The location was also convenient. We could easily walk to the train station, which had an internet shop, and to museums, shopping, and the Duomo.

Disliked: We knew we would not have our own bathroom and would be sharing with the rest of the floor but I'm not sure if the other tenants understood getting completely ready in the bathroom (taking up lots of time) was not something they should be doing. Maybe a courtesy posting would have allowed for everyone to use the showers and facilities in a more timely fashion.

Liked: All in all it's a very nice place, clean (which is important when you want to rest) and with friendly helpful staff

Disliked: The only thing I'd say it's the noise as it is located in a busy street. It's not that you can't sleep but whenever you open the window you have to choose either the noise or the TV

Liked: Jonathan, who checked us in was extremely kind and helpful. He gave us advice about restaurants and places to see as well. He speaks Spanish very good and a little bit of English as well. We even checked in an hour earlier than normally possible (at 11:00). We had a very big and pleasant room with new furniture. The hostel has two bathrooms besides the four available guestrooms. Located near the train station and a bigger street. Depending on your preferences it might disturb you.

Disliked: We noticed, that the information on the hostel's website may be not quite accurate as it is automatically translated by Google.
