Expert reviews

Lonely Planet review:

“This classy 13-room hostel – definitely not a party hostel – sits on the 1st floor of Baron Ricasoli’s 17th-century palazzo. Dorms sport maximum four, five or six beds, high moulded ceilings and brightly coloured lockers.”

Telegraph review:

“Wedged between Florence’s two most iconic monuments – David and the Duomo – the Academy Hostel’s location could hardly be better. Sunny rooms with pretty period features and a plant-filled terrace make it a most inviting place to stay, for teen- and golden-age backpackers alike.”
