THIS WAS THE BEST HOSTEL I'VE STAYED IN ALL MY LIFE! And let me tell you, I've stayed in a lot of hostels. Yes it is a bit far from Florence center, but it overcompensates with the cleanliness, friendly and really really helpful staff (they went to pick us up halfway from the centre twice), atmosphere was great (they even had a party going on one night, which was absolutely great), the place around the hostel is VERY beautiful, food was also tasty. Totally recommend it and want to go back!

Beautiful hostel, restored in a very sensitive way. Atmospheric, amazing views. Beds comfortable, crisp white sheets, perfect white towels. Lovely staff. Very quiet out of season, monastic! 1.5 km to nearest and very small shop and bar. No cooking facilities, no food/ snacks available after breakfast or before dinner. Breakfast is minimal, big pasta for dinner. Bus number 23, then 24 from Santa Maria Novella train station, reverse back. Taxi up cost me 25 euro.

Location was hard to get too, but once figured out, it was great. The views were absolutely amazing. It's very quiet, so don't expect a lot of people. Breakfast was awesome, light but delicious and pasta night was even better. They do have things going on sometimes, so expect noise when you're trying to sleep.

Hello, thanks for writing and that you enjoyed the Hostel. Indeed once or twice a week we organize some concerts or other events at the Bigallo but we always guarantee that music stops at 23.00 pm so to keep quiet at night for our hosts. Best greetings from all of us. Bigallo Staff

The staff is nice. But the location is really inconvenience, better have your own transport to stay there.

The staff and facilities are excellent!!! I will certainly recommend this hostel to my friends. Dinner and atmosphere were great! But the Hostel is not well-marked from the road. Drivers cannot see the name of he hostel from their cars. It was very difficult and frustrating to find. Also, there was a miscommunication about the bathrooms. Staying in a 5 person room, we thought we would only be sharing the bathroom with those people, not the entire hostel.

Hello! It was our pleasure to have you all here with us at the Hostel and are glad you enjoyed it. Indeed the Hostel is not really marked from the street because being an historic medieval building we are not allowed to put any signs on it. As to the bathrooms, we have them all in common and do not assign them to any particular room so that anyone can use them in any moment. So just recommend us to your friends or come back. Our best greetings - Nathalie, Tommaso and Francesco!
