Ostello Gallo d'Oro is located in the northern part of the historic centre of Florence, near Piazza della Libertà and a short walk from the rest of the city's sights. Hostelworld guests have rated their staff very highly, saying 'the staff is very good at making you feel comfortable and is very helpful with great recommendations'. One traveller told us they appreciated that 'the way the reception and dining area [are] set up makes it so easy to meet other travellers and get to know the staff'.

  • Hostel Gallo d'Oro says

    The nearest main attractions to our hostel are the Galleria dell'Accademia and the Duomo of Firenze, but personally I always recommend people visit the hill of Fiesole, the beautiful countryside in the Chianti area and the Central Market in San Lorenzo Square - it's got typical fresh Tuscan food for good quality/value.
    Most of our guests are aged 20 to 45. Since we're not a 'party hostel' we can accommodate people from every age who are looking for a clean, safe and cheap place after a long day of walking around Firenze. We organise special dinners with music so that people can meet each other, socialise and go out together. It's part of our general familiar atmosphere; we see people as friends before they're customers.

    I did not stay at the Gallo d'Oro hostel because they were rebuilding some parts. However, I am very happy with them because they relocated me in a really good hostel with the same facilities and servicies, very close to the original one. Therefore, my reviews are for the Wow Hostel in Via Venezia 18B. For this one I can actually only say WOW! :D
