The rooms are on the top floor and the steps are very steep, good for only young guests. The bathroom was shared but was clean...

Florence is amazing and this was a great place to stay while we explored the city. Just 10 mins walk from the Duomo. Although it is on the 3rd story so you have to walk up some stairs to get to it! Clean and tidy. Lovely rooms. There is a small kitchen area that has a fridge and a hob....

We stayed for 2 nights in June. The hostel isn't manned 24 hours a day, so they ask your arrival time before you come, but we arrived at lunch time. There was a little note on the door saying 'back in 5 minutes' ... it was more like 35 minutes but for us having a little wait isn't an issue....
