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: This property was fantastic with a great atmosphere and the staff were friendly and helpful

Disliked: On arrival I would have liked more information about the facilities, for example I did not know about the air con in my room until the 3rd night which meant I had 2 very sleepless nights due to the heat

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.

Liked: The staff was really nice and helpful, and gave me awesome recommendations on places to eat. The directions on getting to the hostel where also really easy to follow which helps after a long day. The place is very nicely decorated,exceptionally clean, with very nice facilities. I also liked that they didn't have bunk beds! I would recommend for solo travelers

Disliked: Not the biggest of deals, but Everyone else got a drink upon arrival!

Liked: Bar and outdoor area are wicked. Cappucino at breakfast is rare in hostels. Great staff. In a quieter area of town, good to get away from tourist crowds.

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).

19 April 2014 Sarah would recommend this property

Liked: Safe and quiet neighborhood in a very residential part of Florence. I stayed in a six person shared room -- very clean with friendly, young travelers. Showers and bathrooms are clean as is the kitchen and dining area. Live music and a friendly atmosphere for a reasonable price!

Disliked: About a 15 minute walk from the city center, and public transport in this part of the city is lacking. Also, the hostel tends to leave it's windows open in the spring. I got at least two mosquito bites every night I was there -- bring bug spray or anti-itch cream.
