Pros: Great location, good wifi (though a bit spotty in the common area), good breakfast, helpful staff, great facilities Cons: A bit hard to find Definitely would recommend! Very nice! Make sure you book early though because they book up quickly.

The staff was EXTREMELY friendly here, and it was our favorite place to stay by far during our Europe trip. They had 24hr reception, handed out maps and went over all the Florence highlights, plus they provided tips on where to eat, so we weren't just eating at the typical touristy places which makes a HUGE difference on the quality of food. I loved our bright orange room with the Tuscan style ceiling. The bathroom was small, but I find that pretty typical of Europe. :)

The location is awesome, it's located on the main street that leads to the Duomo and center of Florence. You MUST MUST MUST go to dinner at least once at Tito's down the street from the hostel! My friend and I went every night we stayed in Florence, on the recommendation of someone who worked the reception at the hostel. Also, the breakfast is really nice: fresh cappuccino and sandwiches with fruit and granola. We loved our time here and would absolutely return!

Definetely one of the best hostels, amazing staff and facilities. The place looked more like a BnB rather than a hostel but I didn t mind. The location is good, but there is a still walking involved. I would recommend this place.

Small, intimate hostel not far from the city center. Great breakfast!

Ostello Gallo D'Oro was comfortable and clean. It's around a 10 minute walk from city centre and around 15-20 minute walk to the main train station. The complimentary breakfast was a nice bonus. The staff was friendly and helpful. If I were to be in Florence again, I would stay here again.

We loved the staff here. They were so friendly and helpful. The facilities are also very nice with a beautiful and comfortable terrace, where breakfast is served (a delicious big breakfast). We wished a few times they had coffee for us at not-breakfast time but there is coffee close enough by. The room was a bit less clean than most of the others on our multi-city trip but still very nice and comfortable.

Best hostel ever, clean and safe, not far from the churches and galleries, with free wifi and free breakfast. Besides, staff are super hospitable here. it would be better if I didn't stay in a mix dorm, all roomates were guys made me a little embarrassed.

Very friendly staff, and warm and welcoming atmosphere. The location was perfect for seeing the sights. I had trouble finding the hostel from outside (maybe that was just me) but the lady at the desk was very patient and helped me find it. I would definitely recommend this place.

I loved staying here. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious! The area the hostel is in is fairly quiet and only a few minutes walk to the centre of Florence. Very good value for money. The breakfast was the best. i have had in a hostel. Sandwiches, muffins, fruit, cereal, juice, espresso coffee.

The hostel is beautiful and clean, but breakfast is a little weak. Because I have a large luggage , the stairs are too small for me to carry on.

Dear C. Are you sure you are talking about us?? Breakfast is our highlight!! And the stairs are 2 meters wide. Without mention that there is also the elevator....
