Hostelworld says:

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'.

  • Ostello 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.

    The staff was amazing! They were extremely pleasant and helpful. I loved the atmosphere of the hostel and felt very safe! You don't really get that feeling at most hostels. The location was great, only a 7 minute walk from the Duomo. Near good restaurants and fun bars. Perfect for young groups, as well as calmer older parties who want a more classic Italian feel. The rooms were clean and were nicely decorated. I will definitely stay there again when I travel back to Florence!

    First of all, we booked at Ostello Gallo D’Oro but we actually stayed at the next door B&B, which is a possibility according to their ‘Things to note’ section so that’s fine. However, we had to pay double for the city tax, which wasn’t mentioned anywhere. On the other hand, the room was great, with comfortable beds and well-equipped. Breakfast was awesome (check their pics!). Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definetely recommend it.
