Best hostel I've been so far! Just go, you won't regret it. They also sell breakfast in their restaurant (6€, all you can it, a good variety of food). I would definitely go back! - Melhor hostel que fiquei até agora! Apenas vá, você não vai se arrepender. Eles também vendem café da manhã no restaurante deles (6 euros, tudo que você puder comer, boa variedade de comida). Eu definitivamente voltaria lá!

Very nice hostel, with a great bar and excellent amenities, like a swimming pool, a sauna, and a rooftop terrace. The location is decent. Staff are excellent and welcoming. The wifi is pretty bad though.

I love Florence and I loved the hostel. I mean... I think you couldn't ask for more when you think of a hostel. Just have to walk 10 blocks from the train station but... the kindness of the people, the security, the nice and clean installations... and the good food! I would definitelly come back and also recomend it!

This hostel is perfect, the rooms and the whole facility are very clean, it has a good restaurant and it's close to the city center and the train station. Highly recommend.

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.

It was like staying in a hotel - when you are backpacking you don't normally get such luxury. The only downside was that it was near impossible to make friends if you are travelling alone as everyone seemed to be part of a large school group.

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

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...

Clean and decent sized rooms, lockers were big enough for larger bags. Wifi wasn't brilliant. Location was good for food and supermarkets but a bit further away from attractions. Breakfast was good but a bit expensive.
