This hostel was in a great location, close to the main train station and quick easy access to the main attractions. Most of the sites were a short 10 - 15 minute walk. I liked the fact that the offered all female rooms and each bed was assigned and the lockers came equipped with a lock. The area had plenty of restaurants and shopping. The staff members were also very helpful.


if the wifi network can improve, it will be much better.


Nice hostel, plugs by each bed, my 8 bed dorm had it's own shower. Free breakfast was nice, they also serve cheap but good meals. Only thing missing was atmosphere, it felt like the place was dead when I was there in the middle of summer.


It is very clean and nice. And it is very near from station .


the only thing is those sheets are not very clean and new.


I was quite surprised that we were moved from a hostel into a hotel. I was looking forward to a hostel type environment where I would be able to socialise with other travellers. That aside, this was in a good location and the staff were quite friendly.

We went on both free walking tours with Constanza - she was fantastic and showed us a few places off the beaten track. It really made our trip to Florence. thank you!!


Great hostel. Rooms were always clean. Breakfast was big and varied. Although they can be a bit slow to fill things up. Dinner was good and cheap. There is a lovely garden. They also had hot water and cold water and a microwave for use. No full kitchen but you can get by. Also very close to the train station.


Very spacious, nice hostel. Breakfast was very good and in a good area of Florence. Would stay here again, good value for money


Staff is impersonal and straightforward. They got cheap eats at the hotel (pasta and pizza) and basic survival snacks and drinks at the reception desk. What I disliked is the fact the breakfast took too long to be refilled, so we had to wait a long time once we got there a little late. But it is amazing and they even got tiramisù. So it compensates the bads. The location is good if you are arriving by train and going around is a 15 min walk to the historical district.


Convenient location, being just 3 short blocks from the main train station, and within easy walking distance from most of the important sights. There are city bus stops nearby. There are good restaurants and cafes on Via Faenza where the hostel lies. The breakfast is phenomenal with eggs, lasagna, vegetables/ fruit, rice, bread and pastries. Many Koreans there and they are not accustomed to hostel culture. They tend to make a mess and inconvenience room mates. Plumbing issues but handled well.


Great hostel, definitely recommend. The wifi was dodgy at times but eerything else perfect


I would reccomend Archi Rossi to the most of travellers)... They are really friendly, have nice rooms, charge proper money. I would only improve the internet connection speed and definitly added towels in set of facilities! Thanks a lot, Nadia


My room had a locked cabnet for each guest in the room. i was really happy about that, also a computer! wow! never seen that before. Really enjoyed the walking tour too! and Best breaksfast I have ever seen!


Fantastic and helpful staff! Variety of free breakfast options and free water as well. Internet on the computers were a little unstable and the public/first floor restroom needed to be cleaned. Satisfying stay overall, though.

Great location, little-to-no atmosphere, good, free breakfast, free filtered water, OLD ITALIAN PLUGS. Great value for money.


Great walking tours included with the price; great breakfast included with the price; did not like the bathroom situation


Great value! The hostel is located centrally right between the station (Santa Maria) and the center (Duomo), so even if you're traveling alone you can go out late at night to enjoy the atmosphere in the piazzas, then walk back -- it's close and very safe down Via Faenza. The facilities are beautiful with a great garden. Breakfast is not gourmet food, but there are so many choices, from the standard cereals and donuts, bread, eggs, sausage, to noodles and lasagna and tiramisu.


A relatively large hostel, very clean, with a good breakfast buffet in the morning. In the evening, you can also order cheap meals in the cafe downstairs. Good WIFI, comfortable beds with individual lamps and sockets, very large lockers that are big enough to hold a small suitcase.


Stayed here for a night, wasn't bad, wasn't great. Breakfast is above average, but because of the amount of beds in hostel I recommend getting in early if you want something. Hallways covered with writing from other travelers, no big deal, gave the place a little identity. Highly recommend getting something for the mosquitoes, no air conditioning, so windows are left open. Bathrooms are average, beds were by the far the worst I have stayed in, springs were bent and deep to all hell.
