It is just 10-15min walk from the train station and location is perfect. wifi is excellent and you have a computer room which is almost free of charge. I stayed n a mixed dorm and in the peak summer. The rooms were air conditioned and clean. They have a swimming pool, where you can chill out. They have a terrace bar which is cool. They charge around 3 euro for the breakfast, which is ok and they serve English breakfast. I would recommend anyone who would like to stay in this hostel.
Plus Florence is very big, so it can feel a little bit like staying in a hotel, but the facilities are great (pool was much appreciated during the heatwave!), the staff are helpful, and the rooms are very clean and well designed. It doesn't have a kitchen, which is a bit annoying.
Great social place to stay
Very good! The pool was lovely (although a bit cold, but with the heatwave, that was quite nice!), but not nearly not enough power outlets in the room. We managed though :)
I was upgraded to a 3-bed female dorm with ensuite (from a 4-person mixed). The room was amazing. It was huge and had two air conditioners! The bathroom was spacious too. The location was good too, close to the main attractions.
Loved this hostel! Very helpful with things to do around a town. The pool was awesome for the overly hot weather.
Overall, quite good. The location was very central, so I was able to walk everywhere. The facilities were nice - outlets for each bed, the restaurant was convenient, and I loved the pool! Only real complaints are the wifi and air con. The wifi was pretty spotty, and even though they claimed the AC was on, our room never felt cool. Didn't care to sleep in a warm room in such an already hot place.
Far closer to a hotel with dorms than a hostel. Clean and great facilities but big and impersonal.
If you are traveling with others, then PLUS is for you! The pool area and restaurant are great. However, I don't think they should be calling themselves a hostel. It's basically a hotel with dorms. for me, the hostel vibe was totally missing. There's no common room, no kitchen (can't bring in your own food) no planned activities for people to meet each other, and most of the people there are traveling in huge packs with Busabout or Topdeck and only keep to themselves. Staff was helpful though :)
It was a good fun experience staying at the hostel.

the deck chairs on the roof were wonderful and it really seemed like you were in a hotel rather than a hostel, it just happened to be strangers in your room. bathroom was great, food downstairs was good, location was wonderful and staff were friendly
Great hostel - would come back here no question. Clean, tidy rooms with own bathrooms, great bar and pool area. Staff helpfully recommened day trips, etc. Easy walk from main train station and next to sites. Wifi was a little shaky when I was there given that they were changing the router, but that would be my only complaint. Definitely would stay here again.
Really nice hostel and the atmosphere was awesome
Pretty good. Lots of interesting people, helpful staff but the pool is great for when Florence is +34 degrees!
Even though we were one of the many older couples (we are 30) staying there it still felt the hostel catered mostly towards a much younger age group. The rooms were very nice and clean, struggled with wifi and breakfast is for what you get.

Terrific location. Very clean. Thank god for the air con. I loved the pool and the bar. The restaurant was reasonably priced and quick but the quality of the food was poor. The €6 breakfast had canned mushrooms and I'm pretty sure the eggs weren't real either. A lot like a hotel in terms of atmosphere, people tend to stick with there travelling group. This makes it a little harder for solo travellers to meet people (unless they are drunk of course).
They knew i was going to book 1 nights on check in but because i came with a big group they took my passport and gave me the room key and said come back later as it was busy when i did i found myself stranded on my second night as they were fully booked. Otherwise the pool Area is great! Good food and cheap drinks!
Plus has better facilities than any other hostel I have visited in Europe, having two pools is a big bonus, and the pool bar is a nice place to sit during the day and evenings. Staff are also very friendly and helpful. will definitely be staying in and Plus hostel again!
I moved to this hostel for the air conditioning - the thermostat was turned so high it wasn't of much use. Great facilities for the price. I would have enjoyed them if it wasn't for my needing to leave so early in the morning. Good for singles and groups.
