Good wifi. Very clean bedrooms and bathroom. Large lockers for backpacks. Quite far from city centre ~45mins to reach the river. Bus is two euro one way.


Great hostel, really close to the main train station as well as to city center. Clean rooms, great terrace, quiet, enough sanitary facilities in rooms and excellent free breakfast. If I ever visit Florence again for sure I'll be staying here again.


Great location and fantastic, free breakfast buffet. I enjoyed my stay at this hostel a lot and I highly recommend it. The staff was very helpful.


Thank you to the hostel staff for all your help!


Would recommend this hostel! Great breakfast buffet, large lockers, own power point to charge phone, comfortable beds, airconditioning in our dorm, location was in walking distance of every highlight in the city. Staff was helpful. There is a free cold and hot water tab close to the reception. Laundry service was good since the washing machine drum was very big. Large garden to hangout.


Overall, a good hostel with all the amenities you would want. The main downside is that there wasn't a ton of atmosphere regarding group activities, fun common areas, etc, which might not be a bad thing if you just need a decent place to sleep and keep your things. It was also really weird that a bunch of kids (age 12-16) were staying there that was a bit uncomfortable. Also, they really need to fix the air conditioning in some rooms because it was very hot and the windows were locked shut.


The breakfast was great and it was nice that it was free.


A very nice and clean hostel with informative staff. The location is also very close to all major attractions. Would definitely recommend!


A total value for money. From where do I start. A cute and a cosy hostel, at an excellent location with a superb breakfast. Don't miss the breakfast. The hostel also has a free tour of Florence an awesome way to know the city, the guide is good.


I only stay there for one day and I slept most of the time so I don't have a lot to say. The hostel is good enough, has a good location and the staff is really kind.


Really cool place to stay. The breakfast is in fact AMAZING and the environment is perfect. Close walk to the train station as well as the main sights.


Archi Rossi was a good hostel. Very close to the train station and just a short walk (10-15min) from sights. My room was a very spacey 8bed female, with two bathrooms ensuite (one with just toilette, one with shower and toilette)! Each bed has a large locker, with provided lock (can fit entire suitcase plus more). Rooms were clean. Breakfast was served daily 0700-0900, and had a great variety of foods. Staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.


The place was nice, large room. Wasn't there long so didn't meet anyone. Located close to the train station which is good but a little bit of a walk from the city centre which is fine, except for when your phones dies in the middle of the day :S


Great place! Nice and clean and the breakfast buffet is AMAZING (fruit, eggs, toast, yogurt, cereal, etc). Right near the train station and only a 5-10min walk from all the sights. Awesome staff, big storage lockers, and did I mention the breakfast buffet is amazing!?


Loved the location!


unlike most of hostel run by family, this one is absolutely commercial and efficient. It good on the one hand that the decoration is excellent, the breakfirst was a feast, everything got good standards; It not that good on the other hand that the atmosphere is not that cheerful. One thing that made me kinda unhappy is the staff was quite rude and cold. Not me only felt that way but my other roommates thought so too. And BTW if the online info says there would be towers, please do provide them.


The staff was very helpful, especially helping reserve a last minute tour. The room was very clean. Finally, the hostel's location near Firenze train station was very convenient.


My first hostel experience, set the bar very high! Wonderful location, extremely clean, and great staff! Would most certainly reccommend!
