“Just dont, school kids running wild”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

The hostel its self can not be faulted, the rooms are nice and modern. The problem is that they allow group of school children to stay there and they run riot all night, and i mean all night. They were running up and down the hallway screaming, yelling and playing hide and seek till 3 am. My boyfriend got up numerous time to tell them to be quite but they just laughed and kept making noise. There were no hotel staff or teachers in sight to keep them under control. Overall, my stay in Florence was ruined by these kids, due to lack of sleep. I would not recommend this hotel.

A friend and I stayed here for 6 days during a trip around Italy in June/July 2014. We had a double room in the new building and it was everything we could have wished for. Do not be put off by the word 'hostel' - people of all ages were there during my stay - even families!

The pros:
-Cheap
-Clean
-Modern
-A decent size
-Great location - close to everything
-On site facilities e.g. restaurant, bar, launderette
-Friendly & helpful staff
-Free in-room WIFI

The cons:
-There really wasn't any

FYI Florence itself is very easy to get around on foot. You can walk from North to South in about 30 minutes

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new building

When we arrived on our bus tour they seemed so organized with their wee colored packets and room keys. When we got to our room out key wouldn't work, 5 flights of stairs up because the elevators were out of action and 20 minutes later waiting at reception we got into our 4 bedroom dorm. We booked a private double. Rage. Up and down 5 flights again and another 20+ mins at reception (they are so slow and only 2 are on with bus loads lining up) we finally go to our room. Then room was nice. Could have been a great stay if they would just sort the admin and elevators out.

This place was great. We stayed in the new building, so was very quite. Very clean, good price, good location, and good amenities. Pool, bar, and cafeteria on location. I am sure we would have enjoyed it even more if we were in our young 20s. I would definitely look into staying at other plus locations as well. Seems like they offer way more amenities than most hostels.

Traveling with 4 people, we were placed in the new building with our own room. We stayed for 2 nights while the world cup was playing.

Location: The location of this hostel was ideal- close to the train station and walkable to the action.

Accommodations: The room was clean. The shower/bathroom had nice hardware and good water pressure. We had plenty of room to lay out our things and the beds were comfortable. Although, the pillows were extremely flat.

Bar/Restaurant: The food was not the best, breakfast was straight forward. But the atmosphere of the bar at night was really nice. People pregaming before heading out and some congregating to watch the soccer games.

Customer Service: They were great at providing the "everyday" tourist spots, but they did not really offer any advice for fun local spots. The lines were often very long to check in/check out.

I would definitely recommend this hostel/hotel to anyone, the staff are great and the customer service!!! There was a mix up with the bookings and Michele (manager) was extremely friendly and helpful and even offered an upgrade! In peak season - that's anything to keep customers happy!! Definetly check it out :)

Michele was a god send ! We didn't have a confirmed booking for our group of 18 ppl due to terrible organisers!! and Michele saved us with his amazing customer service and set us up in the hotel wing ! We not only had somewhere tk sleep for 4 nights but also set us up with cheaper prices for the hotel wing! Shout out to Michele for giving us a place to sleep for 4 nights ! Xx
