        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.

        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.

        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!

        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.

        Great staff, great location, terrible experience”

        Location, price, staff

        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.
