Likes : this hostel was value for money, the staff were very friendly and very helpful and the hostel itself was very clean. We found it to be in a great location as it was very easy to walk to the city centre and was very convenient when getting buses to the train station. I would recommend this hostel and...

The hostel is quite nice. Its big, it has nice showers, the staff is quite good. I tought that some areas of the hostel had some weird smell, but I think its just me. The common areas are really big, the kitchen looked really nice and the dinner room was colder than the rest of the hostel. What I disliked...

It's midsummer and there is no air conditioning. It is somehow hotter inside than outside especially at night. It's impossible to sleep. The men's bathrooms are disgusting and the wifi is basically nonexistent. Worst hostel I've visited.

Overall, the hostel is in a nice location and the facilities are okay too. It has a sitting area with tables, you can do some basic cooking and laundry. -however, the rooms get awfully hot and there is no air conditioning. If you want to sleep at all, do not book this hostel! Talked to other travelers and they all...

I liked this hostel, it's worth your money. It's a 10 - 15 minute walk to the city centre and Piazzale Michelangelo, there's a good kitchen and dining area. The building is old fashioned so the stairs are narrow but that can't be helped. However I had a pretty poor night's sleep as the second storey room I was in...

It is clean and the rooms have 6 beds in them. It is a mile walk from the main train station. It is in a good location and has a number of good places to eat nearby. The staff is friendly and was helpful in getting information on visiting the Chiant/Tuscany region.

Pros: It is in a good location, not so far away from the center (around 15 min walk tops). The rooms are big, and there are lockers, as well as a kitchen and fridge to store your food. Plus there is a supermarket next door from the hostel. Cons: The dorm I was in was really big and thus there...

The hostel closed between 10am and 2pm which was annoying. The stair were narrow and small so it was difficult with luggage. There wasn't a great atmosphere either unfortunately. I felt unsafe in the bunk beds. I had to use a plastic stool to get to the top bunk which didn't have railings. There was only one main light in...

I stayed here for one night, and I was able to book it the evening of. They were cheap, but the beds were good as well as the bathrooms. Towels and sheets were free! The location is good, 5 minute walk at most from the famous bridge and fairly easy to find. I definitely recommend it!

I was only staying 1 night but had no problems. Clean, not dirty, but not the cleanest ever. Rooms are very basic and entire place just kind of feels older and could use a cosmetic renovation. Again nothing bad, just not special. Hostel was quiet and everyone was nice. No real complaints from me, especially considering the low price. Great...

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Neighbourhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.

“Book early even when doing online booking. Private rooms probably best if a couple. Lots and lots of stairs so request lower floors if needed prior to arriving.”
