Awful experience with a lady staff


Avatar for Goo Tong

Goo Tong,

Thu 30 Jan 2020

Good morning Mr. Goo Tong Ang Can you please explain the reasons for your review? We apologize for the inconvenience. At this stage the management is working hard to improve quality, service and good prices for customers. We understand your state of mind and for this reason, thanks to your review we have initiated a series of necessary actions that we are planning. We kindly ask you to remove your negative comment and explain the reasons for our request to remove it: 1) we apologize for the behavior of the receptionist 2) our staff, in terms of preparation and communication, has worked hard to improve and avoid the repetition of such situations and comments 3) the "hostel life" project started right from our hostel (we invite you to watch the trailers by clicking ) which is becoming very useful for making our hostel known. In fact, all this is also very useful for making the Hostelling International network known. Thank you very much for your understanding. Ilaria

I enjoyed taking the train into Florence (half an hour and 6 Euros); the station is an easy walk from the hostel and you can buy your ticket from the machines there with card or cash. The manager was friendly and the place was spotless. I even had a window view to the old town and the football pitch which saw some exciting matches.
