The place is very near the railway station (like five blocks away) which in Florence is a very convenient location for all the touristic attractions and the neighbourhood is full of hotels and restaurants. I never took a taxi or any transport of any sort, you'll be near everything. The host, Nadine, is wonderful and super attentive. She is always...

This hostel is amazing. Truly. Not only are the beds ridiculously comfy, but the staff (a lovely German lady called Nadina and her boyfriend) are superb. WiFi is great. Breakfast is lovely. Unlimited tea and coffee in the kitchen. Not a huge place - two rooms of 6 beds, of which 4 are SINGLE bunks. No air-con but there are...

The hostel was quite small - maybe 16 people total - and had a sort of homey atmosphere. The beds were comfortable, and the breakfast nice. Good location. But the best aspect by far is Nadina. Her passion for Florence is fantastic, she has the best suggestions for where to go and where to eat, and she truly cares about...

I had a great stay here! Nadina is so lovely and really makes you feel welcome. The location is awesome and her restaurant recommendations were spot on. It's a quieter hostel with no real common area but I really enjoyed the slightly more mature crowd it attracted. It certainly isn't a party hostel. Rooms were spacious and comfortable with lockers....

Nadina is an angel and her hostel one of the best I have ever stayed at! The beds are really comfortable, the place very clean and VERY well located, it is a great place to meet cool people, if I ever go back to Florence (which is very possible, because it is a great city) I wouldn't hesitate one second,...
