We were a group of 5 staying here for one night. The rooms were good, and surprisingly SUPER comfortable beds. All beds have a light and outlet which was nice, and the shower was great. The breakfast was included and they served Tiramasu, which was delicious. (they also had eggs, bread, juice, coffee, etc). We took the free walking tour in the morning, which was the HIGHLIGHT. Our guide was great, and was a great way to see Florence. It is a 4 blocks or so from the train station, and about a 10 minute walk to the Duomo. Would stay again.

Huge place with lots of rooms, close to the station and within walking distance to the main attractions. Nice restaurants nearby. 4bed dorm is kind of small so no room for leaving your suitcase flat on the floor. Individual locker with key provided. Staff is very helpful. Breakfast consists in all sorts of things such as biscuits, sausages, vegetables, yoghurt etc. You can fill in your water bottle for free. A bit pricey but overall very good! Would definitely stay there again.

Booked a twin room for my friend and I, which turned out to be a great decision, as the twin rooms are in the hotel next door. After a really friendly check in with a couple of friendly staff members we were greeted with a spacious room with an ensuite. As both of us have been traveling for a long time this kind of quiet private experience was really needed. Breakfast and dinner were included in our stay which was excellent and very orginal compared to every other place I've stayed. Really recommend this place for a twin booking.

This was the first time we ventured to stay in an Hostel. We were pleasantly surprised. We reserved a room with a private bath. We actually stayed next door in the connected building. The staff was polite and attentive and had pretty good English skills. The room was extremely small, but we knew we would hardly be spending any time there. The bed was comfortable but pushed against the wall on one side. The lighting was dim to the point I had to use my computer screen to light the thermostat to adjust the temperature. There was a safe, fridge, computer and free internet that was quite serviceable for our laptop. There was no view from the room because of scaffolding and netting. Breakfast was included and plentiful and tasty. The building was a maze and there were areas that were still being remodeled. We recommend those on a tight budget, like us, stay here. It's very convenient to the train station as well as the museums. The lobby did frequently have a sewer odor. That was the only downside.

After my horrendous few days trying and failing to book hostels, I found this one by chance.

Clean, four bed, female dorm with lockers, breakfast, free walking tour and lovely outdoor patio that is warm even in winter.

Thanks for making my trip an affordable breeze.

An awesome hostel close to the train station with really friendly staff. The breakfast there was good and they provide free walking tours in English. You can socialise/relex with others on the terrace.
