    I wouldn't be surprised if half of the good reviews for this hostel were fake profiles. My friend and I stayed here from July 26 to July 30 and were disappointed by everything except the beds. This hostel has air conditioning machines, but that doesn't...More

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Academy Hostel and only wish I could've stayed longer. The people I met were great and everything was clean and trustworthy. I also appreciated the fresh towels provided and free breakfast. Would definitely recommend to anyone staying in Florence.

    The location of this hostel is unbeatable, literally at the Duomo's footsteps. The dorm accommodations are clean, and you're provided with a lock and reading lamp. One thing that was lacking (at least in my room) was an outlet next to the bed (there was...More

    Breakfast and towel included (win). Individual PowerPoint and bedside light. Would benefit from more than one foot towel in bathroom- also pegs/ hooks to hang towels/clothes. Helpful reception staff. Great not having to climb into a bunk. Communal areas. Wifi best in reception- less good...More

    Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
    an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
    The historic center is characterized by the immensity
    of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
    brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
    not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
    Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
    enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
