Liked: It is a great Hostel! The Hostel is simple, but really good. The reception and living room have a great decoration. They have a really well equiped and clean kitchen for guests to use. There is a outdoor area where you can enjoy your breaksfast by the sun, and speaking of breakfast, you can ask for a espresso or a capuccino freshly made! The bedrooms are clean, and confortable. They also give you a fresh towel for use during your stay. The bathrooms are clean, big and functional. The staff is nice and hepful, they call you by the name! And you also get a welcome drink when you arrive. It is a great hostel, I would highly recommend this hostel for your stay in Firenze. I really felt at home in Tasso Hostel, it was a pleasant stay!

Disliked: The breakfast is included, its great to have a fresh capuccino in the morning and the croissants are really good, however I think would be nice if we could have something more to eat, like fruits, yogurt or ham/cheese.

Liked: At first I had a little trouble finding it because a lot of the buildings on the street look alike. After finding it, you have to be rung in. Upon entering you see a really sweet lounge. This place is actually a renovated elementary school and the lounge is where the gym was. They've set up a bar and seating area and also offer a stage for live entertainment. The area is also great, with a lot of small bars and clubs nearby. It's also very alternative friendly and non-mainstream. I got a single room with shared bathroom and all that jazz. The shared bathrooms are located in the hall so to room is entirely private. The attendant takes the keys when you go out so no worries about losing them, etc. in the morning, breakfast consists of coffee, croissants and cereal. However, if you prefer to make your own food a kitchen is available. I would definitely stay here again.

Disliked: Dakota left no negative feedback.

Liked: I like the whole concept of the hostel and find that it is quite cool and modern. A pub-like Receptiontist area; a clean and neatly arranged kitchen; toilet is almost of the time clean and dry; and simple and tidy room. It is probably one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in!

Liked: The hostel was located in a quiet street and was such a welcoming and well designed hostel. I stayed in a large twin room and both the room and shared bathrooms were very clean. The staff were excellent and couldn't be more helpful. You receive a free welcome drink on arrival and the bar stocks well priced drinks. You're a fifteen minute walk from everything Florence has to offer. Tasso is a great hostel.

Liked: The atmosphere and friendly staff were great. I stayed in both a single room and a dorm and both rooms were clean and felt spacious. The free drink upon arrival helped to unwind after a stressful commute to Florence. Would definitely stay again.

Disliked: I found it extremely hot at night. Both rooms had fans but this didn´t quite cut it.

01 May 2014 Katharina would recommend this property

Liked: Amazing hostel with great interior and courtyard, nice staff, spotlessly clean, breakfast sufficient (1 fresh croissant and 1 espresso/cappuchino from the "good" machine, plus unlimited tea, filter coffee, juice (not fresh one), toasts). Great for travellers who want to meet people and have entertainment in the evening (on my first night, there was a party, on the second a record release gig).

Disliked: If you want to be on your own and go to sleep early, I wouldn't recommend it, as there is entertainment, and it is noisy until around midnight (or later).
