This hostel was a nice, cheap place to stay. Could have been improved with evening events other than a buffet, and proper kitchen facilities-a microwave is not a kitchen. Other than that the location is easy, on the same road as the station and just a 20 minute walk from the tower. I have had a lovely stay here.

Great atmosphere, nice bar and swimming area at the ground floor and a nice terrace on the roof. Rooms were spacy as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay! The accommodation was great! Rooms got messy at night but were always spotless after staff had been in to clean! Just one comment: possibly mention to people checking in that air conditioning is available upon request. I slept in a very hot room for the first 2 nights because I didn't know this.

Everything was extremely convenient and facilities such as pool and etc were great. However not the same sense of community you get in smaller hostels making it harder to socialise

Overall good place, rooms were super clean and pool/bar facilities really nice. Bar was packed at night but not hugely social, as most guests were with Top Deck and Busabout, but good place to stay with a group.

Look - if you're looking for a HUGE, impersonal hostel with a party vibe and pretty good facilities, then PLUS is a good choice. The beds aren't great, the bar and restaurant are laughably overpriced and the 'fitness area' consists of a treadmill and bike - but it is in a good location and the staff seemed friendly enough and we enjoyed our stay. Remember what it's like flying on Ryanair - plus is the PLUS is the hostel equivalent in Florence.

I have so many good things to say about Plus Florence! Great location and clean, comfortable facilities. Also extremely helpful staff-- I had not been able to find any hostels available for the number of days I was staying in Florence (book your hostel early!!!), so when I checked out, I begged Plus to see if they had any availability at all for the next night. They were able to find me an available bed after someone cancelled that had a great view of the city! Great wifi too. Highly recommend!

Very big hostel almost hotel like, beautiful pool and outdoor area. Contiki tours coming through can be loud but that's expected. Nice rooms.

Close to everything in Florence which is really nice. Wouldn't recommend the restaurant we ordered pastas one night and it was precooked from a large pan and heated up nothing special. Pool was fairly small and the indoor one was closed. Overall our room was nice cleaned each day

Was a really good hostel. Would recommend. Met heaps of people. Only bad thing is that in a 12 bed dorm there was only one shower and one toilet with no alternatives other than the toilets near the bar. Aside from that, loved it!

I was pleesantly surprised by the Plus Hostel in Florence. The facilities were great and in some ways beyond our expectations. Staff were lovely and helpful, a bit slow but partly due to the volume of people especially on a Friday check-in. The place was clean and well equiped. Loved it! will definitely be back!

This hostel is extremely large: large enough to support its own bar, a pool, and its own cafeteria. The upside is that these facilities provide an excellent way to meet fellow travelers. The downside is that the hostel is a stationary cruise boat (i.e. karaoke at 11 like clockwork) with an extremely high turnover due to Australian "Busabout" tours. Meet some people in the pool or at the bar and then go out with them to see everything that Florence has to offer, and it won't disappoint!

This hostel is more like a hotel. It was nice to have a pool, but it a pricey place and you don't really get any extras. The restaurant and drinks are really expensive. The staff is really busy all the time, so a bit hard to talk to, although they are very friendly. A lot of big groups go there. It's not very social for solo travellers. The rooms and beds are very clean, and you get a free towel, which is nice.

If you like a party hostel this is definitely where you should stay. We had a great time here and the pool is an awesome addition especially when you have been walking around site seeing all day.

Dear guest, thanks for sharing your opinion. The outdoor swimming pool - with the pool bar - is the ideal place to relax after a day walking around. and we also have an indoor SPA opened during the wintertime!! Best regards
