Archi Rossi hostel is one of the biggest hostel we have been to. Lots of common place to interact with people and have fun, but the only thing lacking were people. The facilities are exactly what they have said on website ( totally excellent), though our air conditioner didn't work during first night. Staff was friendly and suggested many good things.
I had a great time in your hostel. Thank you ^_^
Our stay here was very good. The breakfast was extensive and pleasant to eat in the outdoor garden area. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was big and clean and the ensuite was good. Location was close to train and major attractions but the street was quiet. Will recommend to friends
Had an awesome free breakfast! Staff was helpful. Room with nine girls only had one shower and toilet. However you could turn off the room lights from your bed, nice perk if you're on a top bunk! There were computers available for use and you could fill up water bottles. They had a hot and cold water machine. Super close to the train station which was very nice. Laundry facilities as well. I would stay there again.

Good hostel, with excellent breakfast, secure lockers and good wifi. Close to both the train station and city centre, though staff could have been a little more friendly.
Hostel was OK. Really liked the fact there was an AC in the room. The free breakfast is a real treat, too! Staff was nice and the internal garden was a really nice place to hang out and eat breakfast! The lack of a rug or something like that caused the bathroom to be wet at all times. :( Also, the power outlets were very badly placas and my bed was broke on spot, but nothing too serious.

It's a pretty nice place and was exactly what I needed. The free walking tours and breakfast buffet are much appreciated. Staff are generally very helpful. The outside areas were nice for sitting outside and socializing.
Well located, awesome breakfast, plenty of space in rooms and common areas
Great location and loved the free walking tours!! Breakfast wasn't very enjoyable (but it is free so can't really complain). Good atmosphere out on the communal balcony though you NEED insect repellant in summer. The room was clean (though I had a blood stain on the mattress above me which was a bit gross) and the beds are comfy, also each person gets their own lockable wardrobe which is awesome. The staff are generally pretty friendly and the beers are only €1 at reception!
nice part of town, nice rooms. would have been nice to have access to the kitchen
The hostel is very good, there is a great breakfast, good bed, cute place for staying, but the only thing to improve is to control people entering, because everyone can join.
This is a 3.5 star hotel at 2 star hostel prices. If you are looking for a classy place to stay for 30 Euro a night, this is it. Minutes away from the heartbeat of Florence and everything in between. Staff are accommodatin, knowledgeable and hospitable. The rooms are wonderful (just remember to bring a towel) and there is an included breakfast. The common area is in the middle of the hostel buildings surrounded by gardens. Truly a zen type feeling. Very quite hostel in the middle of Florence.
The hostel was of great value with its cleanliness and spacious environment. Facilities were comparable to a hotel especially with its canteen. The staff was helpful but not as warm as you usually see in hostel.
If I could give a Value For Money rating a "Best I Ever Had" rating I would. Usually breakfast isn't a big deal for me, but the breakfast buffet here makes this place worth staying. All the other facilities are nice, and the hostel is even decorated with copies of famous art, but the breakfast buffet was so big and diverse, that I ended up being so full afterwards that i spent very little money on food the rest of the day! Bathrooms were clean and rooms were nice! Awesome hostel.
The hostel was in a good location and was easy to get to from the train station and didn't take long at all to get to the major sites. The only downside is that it's not a good hostel if you want to meet people. The free tour was great and I met people from the hotel next door. It was more of a hotel vibe than a hostel vibe.
Everything was wonderful at the Hostel. The staff was nice, breakfast was delicious, and our rooms were comfortable.

Loved this hostel! Beautiful courtyard and restaurant, great free breakfast. Well priced dinners, computer access. The free walking tour was so good. The woman who guided us was really good at her job.
I've stayed in hostels all across Europe, and this Hostel is the very best I've had the opportunity to stay in. It's the best. The breakfast is GREAT. The space in the rooms is beyond great for hostel standards. This hostel sets the absolute bar for all hostels I stay in in Europe--and that's coming from someone who has taken groups abroad for six years….
