The hostel was set in a nice location, really near the waterbus station. One problem was not arriving during the checkin time. We managed to place our booking to show our arrival at 12pm but the reception was not open. The staff is really friendly and gave good suggestions when asked about food recommendations. Only one toilet on the floor that I was on and people were constantly knocking on the door while I was using it. Overall, it was a good experience

It is modern and practical, also very large, there is no youth hostel atmosphere. The staff tends to chjat a lot before taking care of the customers.
Plus Florence Hostel was a good experience, the hostel is quite big, they have a swimming pool, so that's cool. Also in room you have a private bathroom, so that's also cool. The check in is only after 2 pm, so that's not so good, but they have a room for your luggage, so that's not a big issue. Check out is at 10 am, but that's ok also. The breakfast costs 6 EUR, but it's worth the money. You can eat and drink as much as you want. I would definitely come back.
Only stayed one night but food was nice, staff was friendly and rooms were clean, wish I got to try out the pool and stuff though... Maybe next time
More like a hotel. Big bus tour groups stay here but I was in a room with other solo travelers. Location is 10 min walk from train station and 15 min walk to center. There's not a good common area for meeting people outside your room. Shower was hot and great water pressure! Wifi worked better on ground floor and I had some problems with it on the 3rd floor.
It's maybe the best HOTEL, sorry hostel, I've ever stayed in. Eveything was nice and had hotel-quality. Wide, airy, spacious rooms, elevator to everywhere, free pool, cheap price and the list goes on :) However, 2 bad things apart from the hostel itself: -They have no free iron and no one is planning to get one!. -The barrtender was such a SNOB just like specifed on every comments ever made about this hostel. What a punk! I'd come back and stay there, again and again. Thanks!
Incredibly clean, and its a 15-20 walk to the station and very close to the old quarter but you do have to walk everywhere in Florence, get used to that - but that's the fun of it. When I was there, a lot of the summer facilities weren't open, like the bar, the rooftop area was open but the lights weren't on, and it was cold! And disappointingly there was no kitchen or even kitchenette with a little microwave - just their restaurant downstairs where they serve breakfast and dinner.
The hostel is more like a hotel. Pretty weird (and special) to have a swimming pool and sauna rather than a kitchen for hostel guests. Yes, there is no kitchen (I didn't notice that before booking my stay at this place), so if you plan to do your own cooking, this may not suit you. However, the hostel in overall is good and the location is near and within walking distance with the train station and the main attractions of Florence. Comfortable beds and good facilities (except the kitchen).
It is a nice hostel in a good location only it feels more like a hotel. Staff were nice but not overly friendly and seemed very business like. The rooms were nice and the beds were comfortable.
This is more a hotel than hostel so it has very little atmosphere. The staff didn't offer group/daily activities which was unfortunate because it's a good way to meet people. The only thing that brought people together was the bad wifi that only works in the lobby. My bed was so noisy it would squeak at any move and only two of the six lockers would be deemed as secure. The staff didn't really care at all about the people and offered very little help. Stay but be prepared
Great location, were able to walk to all the main attractions.
We were super excited to stay in Plus Florence until we got there and saw that there was no kitchen, the 6 euro breakfast was not worth the money at all not was it replenished at all (there was still an hour and a half left), the beds were warped and the pillows were lumpy. The wifi did not work at all. You have to ask the front desk to turn up the heat but you can't get up there to ask because it's always busy there! Always! The staff were pretty nice though. The luggage room was not secure.
Muy buen hostal en Florencia. Hace falta el desayuno incluido pero tienen buena cocina para la cena. El internet no siempre funciona bien...
Loved the fact that there was pool an a sauna. Steam room smelt like mold though. Staff were very helpful. Location is walking distance from everything. Even the train.
깔끔하고 훌륭한 숙소였습니다. 거리는 산타마리아역에서 무거운짐들고 걷긴 조금 멀었지만, 관광으로 걸어다니는데는 문제없을 정도였습니다. 직원들도 친절하고 시설도 깔끔했고요. 1층도미토리 썼는데 6인실에 더블베드가 있어 7인실처럼 되어있었습니다. 침대마다 콘센트,개인전구가 있어 편했습니다. 철제침대라 소음이 심한것 말고는 불편하지 않았네요. 실내화장실,욕실 구분되어 있습니다. 와이파이연결은 가끔 끊기긴하는데 큰 불편은 없었습니다. 단 한가지 아쉬운점이 게스트키친이 없다는 건데 자체식당을 운영하고 있어 외부음식 먹으려면 5층외부에 있는 펍 공간(비수기라 운영은 안하더군요)을 사용해야 합니다. 자리가 넓은편이라 좋긴 했는데 조식도 좀비싼편이라(6유로대비;) 아쉽더군요.
Good location, clean rooms, comfortable beds - cant ask for much more really. There is no walking tours or bar crawls offered. The downstairs bar is terrible. I can imagine that the rooftop one would be a lot more fun in summer and would be easier to meet people.
You definitely get what you pay for and more, considering how inexpensive it is- which is also the reason I would choose to stay here.
Essentially this place is a hotel, not that I'm complaining... Great water pressure in the showers, beds were comfortable with a REAL pillow, paid breakfast buffet was good (all you can eat). Only complaint is the street traffic and paper thin walls.
Had some good things going for it: good rooms and clean bathrooms, had a pool, sauna and "gym" with a couple cardio machines. Had no real common area or kitchen to meet people, only the restaurant which was a disappointment - didn't eat there again after the first night.
Bar staff were a bit rude, but some travellers had pre warned me that the bar staff were pretty rude anyway. One guy in particular. All other stuff were fine and polite. Nice and clean and good for the budget.
