Right from when I first got to the hostel, I felt like I was being welcomed into a family. I arrived extremely early but my lovely hosts told me I could leave my backpack to go exploring. The breakfast was just enough to get the engines running and the bed was extremely comfortable. Would definitely, absolutely stay here again!
We had an excellent stay at this hostel althought the facilities were old. Breakfast was prepared for you every morning and we even got a bottle of homemade wine, which was delicious! The person in charge of the hostel was the sweetest. She gave us a map of all the things to do in Florence, pointed out all the good and not too pricey restaurants. Amazing stay!
I loved this hostel. The owner is so personable and happy to give awesome suggestions about the city. She makes all of the backpackers breakfast in the morning. It's a small place but there is a small area to hang out and it's great for making new friends. She cleans the restrooms and bedrooms every morning replacing towels for free. She's great about letting you check in early or check out a little late if you're having a hard time rolling out of bed in the morning. Highly recommended!
One of the best places we've stayed!! Nadina was so friendly and helpful. She went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We were given a map on arrival and shown all the things to do and see. Our room was clean and a good size. I had to wait a few times to use the bathroom but it wasn't an issue. Wifi worked well in our room. Beware that it's not a 24 reception. We got in earlier than arranged but one of the other guests contacted Nadina and she came back straight away to check us in.
I was silly and left it to the last minute to book in at My Friends... It was booked out, and for obvious reasons. I then changed my plans and headed to Rome first so I could come back and stay here on a friends recommendation.. It was definitely worth it! Nadina is incredibly welcoming and does everything she can to help you. It's a very friendly and relaxed environment where you feel at home as soon as you enter the door. The location couldn't be any better either! I can't wait to come back!
Only negative about this place are the too few bathrooms and tini kitchen. But if you want to feel at home, meet good people, and be super close to the train station, this is the place for you! And the owner is superb!!! So welcoming and lovely.
My friends hostel was by far the best hostel to stay at in Florence. Nadina makes you feel like your at home rather then a hostel and treats you like family. I have never felt more comfortable and clean while being abroad. Best hostel, hands down.
One of a kind hostel. Nadina is a truly amazing host and I certainly echo the sentiments that it "feels like home." Great place to chill out and hit refresh. Location is perfect, just a few minutes to walk from train station and easy access to everything in Florence. Was given a map of all the best places to eat and get gelato, along with major sights to see. Not a party hostel, but a great place to meet fellow travelers. If I find myself in Florence again I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Ciao!
Pretty great hostel, I enjoyed the day I spent here, nadina was super helpful, and got lots of local tips to make the most of my time in florence. Hostel is also super welcoming,and friendly, I was pleasantly surprised and it surpassed my expectations.
Nadina is the best host one could ask for. She's always there to help and is more than happy to do so. She provides a map with recommended places to visit and eat. She seems to speak 10 different languages as she spoke Bosnian with me even. The atmosphere is awesome, you're bound to meet people as it's a small hostel with one common area. Very clean, I highly highly recommend it. I've stayed in many hostels and this one by far has the best hospitality and a homey/myfriends feel.
Was a great stay in this Hostel. Very close to every attraction, near to the trainstation and i felt like i was staying in a friends house and not in a hostel:-), recommended!

An absolutely fabulous hostel. The host is amazing, so helpful. She goes out of her way to make you feel welcome, knowing everyone's name. Your bed is made every day and free good breakfast every morning. The hostel was very social. It is is walking distance to everything and 5 mins walk to train station. I would highly recommend!
The most relaxing and wonderful little place. Had stayed at a gross hostel the night before coming here and it was amazing to feel so relaxed and comfortable immediately upon arriving to Florence. Comfy beds, awesome breakfast, best host. Gave us a map with all the good local food circled on it and I swear I had the best meal of my life. Wish I could have stayed like three mores days
The location of the hostel is good, within walking distance of literally everything. Nadina and her partner were very welcoming and helpful. They even prepared a map with places to eat and enjoy gelato, and I can say all the places I managed to visit were great! Facilities were somewhat basic and the hostel was quite quiet at times. Overall, a nice relaxed hostel worth staying at.
I would definitely stay here again, which says enough.
First of all, the hostel is very near to the train station. The owners (a couple) were so nice and kind people. When I arrived the lady gave me a coffee and she also prepared the coffe in the other day. They already have a plan with their favorite restaurants, besides the attractions and explained me everything about the city. The room was very clean and the environment kind a familiar. I feel home and welcome there. This kind of service is rare and I wish the best to them.
I can't say enough about my experience here. If you are looking for a party atmosphere this is not where you should go, which is stated in their description. If you are looking for a place that is warm welcoming and is full of great people you have found your spot. The location is great and the owners are awesome! They want everyone to know each other and enjoy themselves. It was an awesome experience.
My favorite hostel yet. Nadina was so incredibly friendly and helpful. She recommended the good places in the city, made a tray of breakfast for you when you woke up and gave us fresh, nice towels every day. She even made sure to put you in a room with other people who speak your language so it was easy to meet people. And it was in close walking distance of all the good stuff.
This hostel suits its name so well right from the beginning I felt so welcome, Nadina is just amazing, so lovely and nothing is a problem for her she helped with everything! The location is great and quiet. It is a small place but it is not a problem it has everything you need.
