Staff and location are an absolute revelation!
I loved to stay at hostel Paola! Number one reason was definitely the extremely friendly and helpful staff. Aura is just an amazing receptionist! Another BIG PLUS is the PERFECT LOCATION! Just three minutes from the station and from the Duomo. even during the night it's a very nice place to hang around, or to go out for a walk. Not unsafe or anything like that at all. The facilities in the hostel were also very nice and good enough for a comfortable stay. I slept there for a week in a four-dorm room and it's spacious, with a locker and a shower and sink, which were practical enough and hygienic. I recommend this very nice hostel highly! And I can assure you that with this staff, you will have a successful and memorable journey for sure!

Clean, good location, no breakfast or kitchen
The place is clean and well situated near the train station and the historic center, but the street is very noisy during the night. There's a shower in the room, if someone uses it, the air becomes wet, but there is only two other showers and one of them was out of order. The lockers are big. There is no breakfast and no kitchen, just a ridiculously small fridge and a microwave, and the common area is really small. The hostel is on the third floor.

Friendly, Safe, Convenient, and CLEAN
After our horrible stay at another Florentine hostel, this place was a paradise. We were provided keys for the street entrance, the hostel entrance, our room door, AND even a key for our individual locker (which was bureau sized with a shelf and hangers). Our beds were clean, the lockout time was only 10-1 which really isn't that bad and when they cleaned the place, they really did clean. All the staff were very friendly and even allowed us to store our luggage there for free after checking out before our train arrived. We had a wonderful experience there. Only oddity was that there was a shower (with frosted glass for privacy) and a sink in our room just out in the open, but it was no big deal.

Small bathrooms
It was ok, though the bathrooms are definitely small, and there are only two showers for the whole place. When we were there one was out of order with no sense that it was ever going to be fixed.

Loved my stay
I would HIGHLY recommend this place. Great location in Florence, great rooms with huge lockers, and wonderful staff that were very accommodating! I would highly recommend staying here if you're going to visit Florence. The only drawback was carrying my luggage up the stairs, but I only had to do it twice so no big deal.

Very nice but not much extra
Good location, 8 min walk from duomo and 2 min from train station. No breakfast, and not always hot water, but Wi-Fi was good. My friend and I checked into a 3 person room, and had no roommate all weekend, so we basically had a private room to ourselves.

  This is an amazing find. I had no idea it was going to be this nice. It is right by the train station, so it's definitely convenient for the traveler. Clara, the owner, is passionate about her work. She is extremely friendly and energetic and is happy to point you in the right direction in Florence. The rooms are super modern and cheerful. You get two lockers to yourself in the room (but you already feel extremely safe). You are served breakfast (included) to your room and we're not talking the typical continental-hostel breakfast, you get scrambled eggs, yogurt and it's cooked by Clara. There is a common room and this hostel is small enough to feel like you can really meet new people. I have never felt motivated to write a review before, and I have stayed in plenty of hostels, but I really feel that whoever stays here will feel like they will never have a hostel experience as pleasant as this one ever again.
