Super Clean, Bathroom in every room only 23 euro a night, gardens and veranda Where backpackers will stay up late with several bottles of wine just shooting the shit with each other and talking of their travels. close to the train station. if you exit the hostel and turn lef and walk down the street to nationale cross that road and continue on fienze approkamatly 6 doors down on the right is a wine store called sebastion somethings you get 3 bottles of wine for only 10 euro and it's really good or you can get 7 1 liter beers foor 10euro....best price in florence. staff is somewhat rude but they got their shit in order the hostel runs like a well oiled machine. food at hostel is not bad. free breakfast is wonderful Bacon eggs toast sausage....just like mama used to make

stayed there two seperate times and only one room had a bathroom. but, that being said, archi rossi was alright. i didn't like the common room too much, and it was too cold for people to be sitting outside at night. the common room is much too cafeteria like, not very social. if you go out the door down via faenza for a couple blocks, you'll come to a small fried chicken place ran by a moroccan guy. fricken best 3 euro feed you will possibly find. 2 pieces of chicken, 3-4 hot wings, bunch of fries, and a can of coke. can't beat it.

Lizz, there is a cool town on the way to rome call perugia. It is exactly between florence and rome. There are a couple of hostels there (one of which is really neat). The old town is worth the visit.

i didnt get locked out...i just think its BS. most people are on vacation and they dont necessarily wanna drag themselves out of bed so early in the morning, and to pay for a room and then have restrictions, esp when the norm is for no curfew and no lockout
