The flat (not hostel) was located in a very central location - 2 minutes away from the uffizi museum. Unfortunately that's all i can say about the place. The whole flat seems to have been converted into a makeshift hostel, and the room which we stayed in came off the worst, with the appearance of it having once been either a kitchen or bathroom - tiles, splashbacks and wirings still left intact and untouched. the whole place was very poorly maintained, with rusting door frames, a broken chair (with an attempted cover up with a cushion) and paint peeling off the toilet seat. our room door also did not fit properly in its frame, resulting in us being able to hear every single conversation going on in the corridor. Needless to say we were rather dismayed when we saw the place, especially after seeing the impressive pictures online. For the price we paid (26 euros) it definitely was not worthwhile.
