“average i should say”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2012

we stayed one night. had to walk up to the next door apartment (for unknown reason). try to imagine we had to walk up 3 floors with our heavy backpacks on our backs, but that's not a big problem. our room had very little air con and it was really hot at night ( it was mid-june in italy!). the wifi inside the room was really poor but it got improved when we moved out of our room. not much info provided by the receptionists.

but there are good sides of the hostel. presence of washing facilities, private bathroom even in 3-bedded room. a nice computer with high speed internet in our room. very cheap drinks (0.8 EURO for a 1.5L water). close to the train station. good location as when visitors walk in florence, we were able to walk from michaelangelo plaza to major spots and then back to our hostel nearly at a straight line. nice restaurants around. remember to try out a small store with 6 EURO for a tasty pasta. good breakfast.

yeah 3 stars should be fair

This hostel is by far the best we stayed in while on our trip around europe. It had everything you could possibly need- cheap restaurant on site, a little shop where you could by food, wine and toiletries for cheap, a computer and tv in our room....this place was set up for the traveller. Excellent, spacious rooms. The breakfast is awesome- a choice of several cooked options!! Free walking tour was fantastic.

We booked a private room in this hostel due to the great, convenient location from the train station. Everything around was in walking distance for the most part which was a big plus. The room was very spacious, almost hotel like. The price was decent but it was about 78 degrees outside and they had not yet turned the AC on, so it was extremely uncomfortable trying to sleep in the heat. We opened the windows at night to get some air in and were bitten up by mosquitos. There was one really friendly woman on staff, unfortunately she was the only pleasant one. The cleaning lady was extremely rude and bum rushed me when I tried to use the public bathroom saying that she needed to clean it and that I had to wait. The main building has a curfew which seemed a little ridiculous. We stayed in the main building on the first night then the next door building the second night. The drawback of this building was having to walk up 6 flights of stairs, no elevator. I would not stay in this hostel again nor would I recommend it to anyone.

Location
Just a 5 min walk from the S M Novella train station. Very very convenient if you are arriving or departing by train. A short walk will bring you to most of the attractions in Firenze, and there are many restaurants / ice cream parlours nearby.

Rooms / breakfast / dinner
Rooms were clean and spacious; the rates were very affordable. 2 things I did not like so much about this hostel is: a) the internet connection is rather slow in the room (its fine if you go down to the common area); b) the room has no aircon / fan, so the ventilation can be poor if you do not open the windows. But opening the windows meant that we were bitten by some mosquitoes!
Breakfast (included in price) was a choice of a simple meals generally comprising of bread, eggs and ham / bacon. There was also a side buffet spread with assortment of biscuits / fruits. No refill for your beverage, but its still good enough to keep you full.
One of the best things about this hostel (which I had not expected) was the 3 EUR dinners! The kitchen charges 3 EUR for a simple pasta or chicken cutlet or nuggets which is a real steal in Italy where most restaurants will add service charge and cover charge on top of the prices shown on the menu. Sure, its not the best food you've had, but 3 EUR for a meal that can fill you up is awesome! Plus you don't even need to step out of the hostel!

Service
Good service by the staff. No complains.

In summary, a great central location, plus super cheap dinners make this hostel a really good place to stay.

The location of this hostel is really prime. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. At the hostel you can buy beer and wine for about 2 Euros. As well as any snacks or microwave items you may want. The breakfast is really nice, made to order hot and fast!
The only downfall would be the beds. Our room had bunk beds and it was impossible to even lean up on the bottom bunk. probably about 3 feet of space.
