Hostelworld says:

We like that PLUS Florence offers so many onsite facilities to guests, including a swimming pool, restaurant and a bar that guests have praised for being 'lively and colourful'. This hostel is located in the northern part of central Florence, near Santa Maria Novella train station and a short walk from the rest of the city. Hostelworld travellers have frequently said they appreciate the 'incredibly helpful and friendly' staff.

Property Information:

Welcome to your home away from home in Florence!

Our brand-new outdoor pool is now open!

PLUS Florence is a unique luxury hostel located right in the city centre and within walking distance to all the top sights, only a ten-minute walk from the main train station.

We set the bar for budget accommodation not only in Florence but in Europe as a whole. Youll easily notice the difference when looking at just some of the amazing facilities we offer: a swimming pool, onsite caf, bar and restaurant, PLUS Tours travel desk, panoramic terrace bar, spacious dorms, a flat-screen TV in every room, PLUS girls-only rooms, Wi-Fi, DJs and more and that's just the beginning!

Jump online and stay in touch with your loved ones as we have Wi-Fi throughout the hostel as well as our own internet caf.

You can choose from a variety of room types.

Our mixed/shared dorms are light and open-spaced rooms that sleep four, five, six, seven or eight people. All beds come with a private reading lamp, crisp white bed linen, cosy fleece blankets and pillows. Each bed has its own storage locker that can be locked. The rooms also have an ensuite WC and shower.

The stylish and airy private twin/double/triple rooms sleep two or three people. Beds come with crisp white bed linen, cosy fleece blankets and pillows and the rooms are ensuite with WC and shower. The triple room contains one double bed and one single.

Our PLUS Girls Only rooms have been designed with women in mind; all rooms are ensuite, bright, airy and stylishly decorated and sleep four, five, six, seven or eight ladies. For those little extra home comforts you get larger bathrooms, a vanity table with mirror, big fluffy towels for use during your stay, hair-dryers, and complimentary welcome cosmetic pack.

Birthday promotion:
PLUS Florence has just turned 4! So to celebrate we are giving away a free night to anyone who wants to celebrate their birthday with us. It's very simple all you need to do is make a booking for a minimum of two nights and as long as your birthday falls on one of those days we wont charge you for that night! The offer is not valid with any other promotion or offer. Upon arrival, booking reference must be presented with a valid form of photo I.D. Any deposit made will go towards the other night(s) booked and the free night is equal to or lesser value of what youve booked; not valid for double or twin rooms (so, dorm rooms only). And that's it. We told you it was simple.

Our all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet is available for just 6. It includes both full English and continental options.

If you do find that the private rooms are unavailable, we have another great site in Florence - PLUS Camping Michelangelo - that will almost definitely have something available. Check it out here on Hostelworld.

Experience the PLUS difference at these other great locations in Europe: PLUS Prague, PLUS Camping Roma and PLUS Camping Jolly in Venice and the brand spanking new PLUS Berlin.

    I think the best aspects to our hostel are the extra facilities, such as the outdoor swimming pool in the summer, an indoor pool in the winter, a sauna in winter, and great bar and restaurant. How many backpackers can say they stayed in a hostel with a sauna and a pool? The hostel is ideally located, with The Academia only a short walk away. The Duomo is also really close to us. No visit to Florence is complete without visiting the Uffizi Gallery - remember to book early to avoid the queues. Another great feature to the hostel is that we have 'PLUS Girls' - girl-only floors. We also have theme nights such as toga parties in our Opera bar and restaurant. Don't miss out on our cheap drinks during happy hours! We have a mix of ages staying in the hostel, with most travellers in the 18 - 40 age range. I personally find that it is very easy for travellers to meet others and congregate in our hostel. Finally, we have some specific rooms for people with disabilities as well as elevators and ramps that are always available if needed.

    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.
