Liked: Location is amazing. Really great spot. Next to everything you need and local transportation.

Disliked: Needs more ceiling fans or small fans in the rooms. So incredibly hot, couldn't sleep. Not a very nice atmosphere from anyone else staying either. No one wanted to chat or get together or recommend anything. Very secluded, do your own thing vibe.

Liked: The location was great. Very close to Santa Maria Novell station. Cheap.

Disliked: The staff were unhelpful, offered no information about the hostel. We weren't even shown the bathrooms. We were given a private twin room but it was extremely cramped. There were not enough bathrooms for guests. On the first day the shower only ran cold, on the second it switched between freezing cold and very hot in quick succession. There was also no decent ventilation which obviously in Tuscany in July is not ideal. Also not the hostels fault but travellers should be aware that there is a lot of noise throughout the night coming from the street.

Liked: Cool apartment. Free wifi though it wasn't described on the website. Fantastic location - a few min walk from Santa Maria basilica and 10min from the Duomo. Good value. As we were leaving at midday, the guy at Hotel Toscana let us store luggage for free, though he usually charges (the guy at Hotel Toscana gave great service). Can pay by credit card.

Disliked: Lack of security - we couldn't lock our room from the inside, so we had to sleep with it ope. We only had one key between two of us and no secure lockers. Staff could have been friendlier/more helpful. Wifi was pretty bad, though they let us use it for free at the reception. There were bedbugs when we were there, but the guy at Hotel Toscana was going to shut it down for two days and blitz the place as we were leaving which was great to hear.
