Good location, spartan facilities”
Minimal toilets & showers
Good value for the $”
Hard to find! There was no signage until you were *in* the building. It was a cheap bed to sleep in. I was on the top bunk and the ladder hurt my feet (narrow metal rails), but my room had its own bathroom, which I wasn't expecting. The communal bathroom's sink looked like it was going to fall apart. I wouldn't want to stay here for more than one night. Convenient location in terms of sightseeing, but I think anywhere in Florence would be convenient since the city is so small.
The bathroom was very dirty. After 23pm until 10am there was nobody at reception and in the hostel
This hostel's Place was good for traveling but...”
There was a shower room in my room but Water was too cold you can not get enough warm water.... if you want to use warm water, you need to go to toilet outside in lobby. But there was too dirty and old Plus I think someone can try to steal your stuff easily.
You will need to pay extra 10 euro if check in between 8pm - 10pm. When we requested for receipt, they weren't able to provide it. The staff promised to send us the receipt through email later on during check out, but we still yet to get it despite few times emailing them. Hotel is on the 3rd floor, without elevator. Only stay here if you need it for the location.
good location ”
10min from station.5min from a super market.15min from Duom. you need 5-10 euro,if you deposit your bag.
Not bad at all”
The staffs were friendly. They don't have an elevator, so I had to carry my luggage to 4th or 5th floor. But it was okay.
Near Train Station, but difficult to find”
The mini hotel is located at the 4th or 5th floor of a walk up building. No proper signage. There are other mini hotels in the same building that has better signages. just one block away from florence central market, with an amazing food court at the second floor . This should never be missed!
Location is well”
The warmer in the 5bed mix room is just non working, felt cold in night. But they clean room everyday, that's nice.
Nice staff, clean place, good location”
the hotel is at the fourth floor without lift so it is a bit difficult for someone carrier a big baggage to climb all the way up stairs, good location in a bright alley, feel really safe during my stay in this hotel, the hotel is clean, the staffs are so nice to introduce the city at the beginning during the check in, this hotel is also worth with the price.
money for value”
the room was cheap and acceptable standard. There is a free water machine which is great to save money on cold water. However, heaps of mosquitos in the room and during the night possibility of waking up with millions of bites (during summer)....
nice stay and value for money”
overall stay was nice but there's no lift, but i think all hotel was like that as it's was a small and old city, a bit far from the train station, but nv mind since we can take water bus there and just 5 mins walk.
Good value, nice staff”
Excellent location. 5 mins away from Firenze train station. Good staff and English speaking. Micro wave and water machine. Great to stay. Will come back again.
Great staff, great location, terrible experience”
My trip to Florence coincided with a heat wave and also the city's fashion week (two separate things). I managed to book the last affordable bed in town. when I arrived, the fan didnt work and the replacement fan also broke down. So 5 people in a single room, with no fan, made for an extremely unpleasant experience. Not to mention the extremely cramped bathrooms/toilets. Of note, the hotel had overbooked, putting 5 people in a room for 4 (which of course, I had no idea they were doing that). The staff were very pleasant and helpful, even giving me a quick, yet insightful, overview about the city and its happenings :)
noisy hot clean”
It's a bit hard for us to find this hotel. Because the map is not easy to understand in Florence. But the staff is polite. The room has plenty of room for 6 beds. However it gets a bit hot at night and the fan doesn't help. At night it's very noisy coz the hotel is near the street. You can hear every word of people's talking downstairs.
Sehr gut, gutes Preisleistungsverhältnis und das Personal war sehr nett.
