Most of the staff were rude and unhelpful, wifi wasn't working, room was so hot. Was pretty disappointed with this hostel. On a positive note, was in a good location.
I had to move rooms 3 time within the first hour I was there as they kept sending me to rooms with no free beds. I paid for an all female dorm but was sharing with males as well. There was at least 2 people that came to check in to the room I was in everyday but there were no free beds. The drain in the shower was blocked and flooded the whole room. Very disorganised hostel.
It is well located, clean and the rooms are spacious. If you want to party and meet people, specially teenagers, it is the right place. Otherwise it might be a little noisy.
I would not stay in a plus hostel again as the atmosphere wasnt great: not sociable. Also it took about 30 mins to walk to clubs and station
Great location and the facilities are worth thr extra couple bucks. We got to do laundry after a month of traveling and the pool was amazing. The only two complaints we had were the wifi sucked, for such a big hostel , they should definitely have more then one server and the A/C was annoying because it was controlled by the front desk and they could shut it off in the middle of the night so it was so hot when we woke up. But other then great time.
Great hostel before 10pm. Good location, very spacious, helpful staff. I was in a 6 bed room with an ensuite, I like that the shower room was separated from the bathroom so both could be used. But there were no outlets in either bathroom so if you wanted to blow dry your hair you had to do it in the bedroom. Definitely a party hostel, people were shouting and screaming and chanting until the wee hours of the morning. So if you like partying or if you're a heavy sleeper, this is a great hostel.
All it was good, but it was a little bizarre that there was a odd old men sleeping in the same room.
Large hostel so easy to meet people. Pool area is really nice and free use of computers is helpful. Wifi works well throughout the hostel
Nice bar downstairs, everything clean and pleasant, and they have a pool! Sometimes very loud, and the Wifi was pretty bad, but they have computer banks so it was okay. A good homebase when you're exploring Florence!
One of the better hostels I have stayed in. Clean, friendly people, fun night life, comfortable beds. Only thing is its loud at night due to bar but if thats what your looking for its a great hostel.
Had a great time here. Pool and bar were a nice touch after a hot day out. Huge hostel, more like a hotel, but with a hostel crowd. Ensuite was great. Clean, quiet enough, a/c worked well. Close to everything in Florence, easily walkable, even after a night out!
Great place in florence! Amazing facilities and great location!
Amazing place that we would highly suggest. Pool was a nice add on and stuff was very friendly and helpful.
They stuffed up our booking, leaving us short a night and did not really care, acted like they were doing us a favour when they found us some beds which was a big downgrade (private to 7 bed dorm). Wifi doesn't work Staff are not very helpful at all.
It was all okay. I had reservation for 2 people in a room which for 4 people. But we slept in different rooms. Much more than hostel. Terrace, swimming pool. But how on earth there was no soap in the toilets?! When we check out a girl in reception gave someone else passport without check it's ours or not. So don't give your passport for the key card when check in!
The staff had no clue what was going on which was very disappointing upon arrival. Also the pool is the dirtiest thing I have ever seen it was full of hairs, rubbish
My girlfriend and I had a great time at this hostel definatly one of the better ones we've been to Atmosphere around the bar area was great, very easy to meet people and they have a pool which is just so refreshing Staff speak great English and have us some excellent tips on what to do and where to eat Definatly stay at PLUS Florence again!!
Worst staff and worst facilities ever. There was no air conditioning even when it was 36ºC outside. Poeple on the reception were unprepared and rude.
Very big hostel and a little out of the way but still easy walking distance to main sights. Room was very clean and we had our own ensuite but the shower doesnt drain very well so bathroom sometimes floods. Staff v.friendly and explained main points of what is available - pool isnt big but is very useful in hot weather. Pool area can get lively in evening. We tried the hostel restaurant and it was actually really nice! Only downside is air con has to be switched on by requesting it at reception
