When we tried to check in...we couldnt't find it...the address was wrong. It was really 2 doors down. VERY confusing to check in...we nearly missed our reservations at the Accadamie because of thei. That being said...the staff was FABULOUS, Breakfast bar and patio wonderful and our breakfast great! Great location too. Very noisy at night.

Very friendly staff, good enough location (walking distance from the center), nice hostel, safe, good room, everything working. Only thing is that check out is a bit early (10:00 am) but they have room to keep the luggage and reception is open 24/7. Small tip: city tax must be paid cash separately (2eur per person).


Just fantastic !


We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Ostello Gallo D'oro and would definately recommend it to anybody looking for an affordable and cosy place to stay in Florence. Staff were so lovely - extremely nice, patient and helpful, always asking if they could do anything more to make our stay better. They really make such a difference in your experience.

It was a little hard to find because the numbers on the buildings on this street are kind of all over the place. After our first night, we ventured out on the second day and came back to our room to find all of our stuff missing. It took a while to get to the bottom of this, but it turns out someone forgot to tell us we were changing rooms. It was an honest mistake, no harm done. Aside from this we had an excellent stay, staff was very friendly, and I would definitely recommend this hostel
