Very clean and homey. Good price considering it's on the island. It's a bit far from San Marco but I personally liked being away from the touristy areas to sleep. Kind of a sanctuary. Plus it's on the island near other nice, less crowded squares. Nice beds and bathrooms

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. Friendly staff, delicious breakfast! It was a little walk to the city centre, but safe location. Rooms generally remained unlocked, but locker supplied.

Would be nice if the bathrooms are upgraded and the bed matrasses are changed.

We enjoyed our stay at this hostel, with a location convenient to the train station. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast at the hostel was the best we had on our entire trip through Italy! There was a wide selection of juice, coffee, baked goods, yogurt, eggs, etc. The only downside of this hostel was that our room was very hot at night, even with a fan and an open window.

Excellent place to stay. The staff are really friendly and helpful, the breakfast magnificent - and so much of it. There is hot water in the shower all the time, plus, good WIFI. The location is good as it is away from the immediate center and all its noise, yet close enough to all the important sights.

This was the first hostel I stayed at and I hope that the rest will be as pleasant as this one. Seriously, Ostello Gallo d'Oro has set the bar so high for my future hostel experiences I don't know if they can compete with this one. The front desk people were awesome, my friend and I loved the girls that we shared the room with (6 shared, all female). They provided breakfast that was on point and definitely made getting ready in the morning very easy.

I booked the wrong room and ended up in an all male dorm room. However, they were extremely helpful and informative about everything. They even warned all the guys in the room that I would be sleeping there. Unfortunately I was not able to get a female room because they were completely booked (I personally did not mind. I come from a family of four brothers). The food is delicious and there is literally always something there to eat. I loved it! I would definitely recommend this hostel!

While the hostel is a bit of a walk from the train station (Florence isn't that big anyway) it was very nice to be greeted with food that is available all day for free when I got in late. The place has ac, a young student feel, and very nice staff. If you prefer a party place, maybe not but this was a great hostel.

Super-friendly staff, clean, towel and great breakfast included! Not many power outlets in the room though and you can only pay by card from 2nights and more.. A bit far from the train station, 20min walking, but ok distance from the city centre. A little bit pricy though but would probably return! :)

Awesome hostel! It's a bit hard to find if you arrive at night but otherwise it was in a decent location that's easy enough to walk to/from. The hostel itself is great and the staff are amazing!! They'll do anything to help, just ask. The rooms were fine, although they could have used a few more outlets. Breakfast was delicious - so many options! Would definitely stay here again!
