eliana_testa My Friends' location is very convenient, a few steps from the train station and really near Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi gallery... walking distance to almost every hotspot in Florence. Owners are very charming and welcoming people, willing to give you tips and advice to get around the city. They are just great. I would come back any time ! Thank you !
young.jj Brilliant location in Florence, very easy to find on arrival with clear instructions of how to get there. Large clean room, very comfortable. A little noisy at nights as was on street frontage. Hosts were excellent - vey friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay again.
dietrich.h Our stay was in every way absolutely perfect. We enjoyed it being there and there was nothing we did not like or we missed in Academy Hostel. Especially we liked the aperitif in the evening, where many guests sat together and exchanges their experiences with travelling or interests. At this hostel you will find a great atmosphere and a lot of friendly people. If we will come back to Firenze we won't hesitate to stay at Academy Hostel.
tonywr We had already paid our money by the time we read some bad reviews about Ester, and chose to continue anyway. We had a family room, with a king bed and two singles with its own bathroom. The matresses were good and firm. I was travelling with my wife and two children. The room had a safe, a fridge, and the shower and toilet were clean. There were some loud tourists at times but I have earplugs for that sort of thing, and the rest of the family don't seem to care and sleep through it. All in all, the place provided us with exceptional value. The location is superb, only a few hundred metres from the main Train station and bus terminal. The best supermarket in florence seems to be just across the road (a little closer to the station but before McDonalds - deceptively hidden, looks more like a bank) The best gelati can be found at Grom or Festival of Gelato. You don't necessarily need to buy a ticket on the Florence tourist bus. We took bus 12/13 to the best view of Florence and that cost 5 Euro a ticket for 24 hours of use. All in all, I would stay at the Ester again.
icehermain It's so difficult to discribe our joy and surprise in words when we entered this comfortable, toasty place, especially after the previous stay in a simple and crude hostel in Rome. We've been helped a lot by the host here. The restaurant they recommanded was perfect. Everything here had been so nice that we regret our short stay.
rodentravels Stay here for sure in florence. Cannot sing the praises of Franz house highly enough. Nicoletta and Mauricio are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble at anytime of the day. Location is awesome for bus and train. If ur coming from station past church it's right down street hotel Roma is on. Took me a while as road sign is 10m down the street. You are walking distance to everything u would want to see in Florence. Florence and surrounds are beautiful having a great place to stay just made whole visit awesome. One tip to help the awesome hosts. They meet u there at the time you say you will arrive as they actually live just around the corner. I felt sssssoooooo bad when I arrived few hours later than intended as they are so lovely I felt bad for wasting their time. Staying here in Florence is a must for price and top notch service:-)
