        Something wrong with the socket but that's all :)”

        I got problem with my socket as it's too small for some of my plug-ins so when I try to put them out of the socket, it was drawn out, too. Well but in fact, it still worked. thanks god! My bed is right under the light for the whole room so when people were up in the late evening, i had to be up too. There are no curtains to cover and no privacy at all. The lockers don't have any key so you have to use your own. Mine is too big for it so I couldn't use one. The lift there is very slow especially in the evening and 2 lifts required a room key to get into though my room key didn't work. Anyway, other things are good, location is great and a few minute walk to the centre and 2 bus stations are nearby but if the tram would be closer, it would be much better!

        Better than most hotels I've stayed in”

        The room was amazingly modern. It had a swimming pool, a rooftop bar, a pool bar and a club. If you're just tired for the day and don't wanna go out "touristing" this is a great place to spend the day in and have a peaceful time. Lots of fun and things going on. Florence isn't that big but it's still walking distnace from most attractions. I'd highly recommend it. Even if you're considering going to a hotel, choose this instead. They give you individula beds, not bunk beds, and they don't crowd you like some hostels do. I traveled through five cities in italy and this was my favourite of all the places I stayed.

        This hostel was recommend to me by a friend and it was definitely worth it! The room I stayed in was very clean and perfect for the low price. The pool was a bit different than I imagined , but it was still refreshing on a hot day and I enjoyed hanging out with people from around the world.

        Good hostel but a bit far away from center”

        (+) clean room. Free towel. Clean room everyday and towel change everyday. Shower gel and shampoo are provided. Have swimming pool. A common room with limited tool but at least you can make noodles with microwave or water boiler. Good wifi. spacious room. Toilet and shower rooms are serperated so it's very convenient. Helpful staff and security guard. He helped me with my heavy luggages. You have 10% discount if you eat the new mercado center. I didn't try but they have verious food there and they open until midnight. (-) Long way to walk there with heavy luggage from bus stop or train stop. Stairs is also my problem coz of my heavy luggage. Easy to walk around but a bit far from city center if walking.

        Very very noisy ”

        I'll start off by saying the hostel is in a great location, staff are friendly and helpful and it's generally quite clean... But it is SO noisy. Inside and out. 7am this morning, the staff are wheeling their laundry trolleys around, the walls must be made of paper as you can hear everything from the corridors and outside. The hostel is on quite a busy street so the traffic noise is also quite bothersome. I wouldn't stay here again

        Party Hostel in Florence”

        Out of all my hostels I would say this one had the most party vibe because there is a terrace that people can go to dink, play games, socialize. It was nothing crazy though. I met some good people here. Many solo travelers. I was happy they had warm shower water and a room to store your own food. My only complaint is they make you pay a small fee for leaving a bag there. It was also not aesthetically pleasing in the hostel. It looked old but sturdy. I would go back but I would do some research before to see if this place sounds like the fit for you.

        Terrible place!”

        I made a one-night reservation at this place. I'd warned them I'd be there at 00:00. This whole problem cost me hours of rest. When I went up to the room I discovered that the bed that was reserved for me was completely dirty. I went to the front desk to ask them to change the bed covers. The receptionist was very rude and even thought I was lying. I had to wait for a while to finally be able to go to the room, when finally I was able to go to the room it was almost 2am, and I was super tired of the trip. This place is dirty and the employees are super rude. I would not recommend it in any way. I took some pictures of the room but unfortunately I can not post here.

        Very conveniently located to everything. The rooms are decent sized and not claustrophobic. ”

        Free towels and toiletries! Wish list: 1. Privacy curtains on bunk beds. 2. Cooking surfaces in common kitchen. 3. Free coffee/tea and earplugs. 4. Tips based walking tours and organized events. 5. Not having to check out at 10a then check back in again at 2p when you extend your stay. 6. Faster check-in process. Give people their keys when they come in early but do not activate and allow access to the room until 2:30p - so you don't have 50 trying to check-in at 2:30pm. 7. Almost everyone has a cellphone. Bastardo Hostel in Madrid uses cellphone to access rooms and common areas. Why are you still using cards? Upgrade your check-in system.

        Bed bugs!! Stay away from plus florence”

        Found BED BUGS when I woke up in the morning. Front desk was helpful but the hostel policies are to make you feel helpless in this situation. They were kind enough to refund me for laundry but make you sign an agreement that makes it impossible for the guest to ask for hotel/medication/trauma refund. They have won multiple hostelworld awards but I dont know how they deserved it. Unhygenic and complete carelessness since this has happened here multiple times in the past and they havent taken any strong actions. Please stay away from here and find a better place for your visit in florence.

        Great party hostel with good facilities. No signage as to bar closing times each night, seems to be different every night. That being said the atmosphere in the bar was great. Outdoor area was closed off earlier than bar closing so everyone got ushered inside, not sure why. Outside facilities were great during the day though and the food was great.

The other thing that i not satisfied, when i view this room I was so happy with the facilities come with steam room and spa,but I was closed due to the season.
