Archi Rossi Hostel is the ideal place to head back to after exploring the famous sights of Florence.

Join one of our free walking tours – we'll show you all our favourite places (and selfie spots!). We've also got plenty of places for you to chill, including a common room, a garden and a terrace where you can watch the sunset with an Italian beer. Plus, there's air con!


We're right in the middle of a vibrant, hip neighbourhood, and just a 5-minute walk from Stazione di Santa Maria Novella train station. From there, it's a 30-minute journey to Florence airport. In the city for a concert at Visarno Arena? It's about 20 minutes away by bus. We're just round the corner from the lively Via Faenza, and a 20-minute stroll from the famous Mercato di Sant'Ambrogio.

Rooms and Dorms

Our rooms are bright and modern – and you'll have your own locker to store your stuff. You'll get free, fresh linen, so there's no need to bring your own and you can stick your laundry in the washing machine. There are private en-suite rooms and mixed or female-only dorms, and you can make the most of our hot showers after a long day's sightseeing. Thanks to our free Wi-Fi, you can WhatsApp home from under your duvet.

Extras and activities

Whether you need tips on the coolest bars, or where to get the best pepperoni pizza, our friendly staff are at reception 24 hours a day. And sure, we all love pizza and pasta but if you fancy a change, get cooking in our shared kitchen for a quiet night in with some homemade food. If you're craving something sweet after dinner, make straight for the vending machine!

    Great location and helpful staff. The breakfast was delicious. Our room was also huge. The only complaint we had was that there were a few flies in our room, but otherwise it was a wonderful stay.

    Location is close to the train station so easy commute. I was in the room with 8 beds. It was clean and each person gets their own closet/cubby that comes with its own lock. Typical to other hostels I've been to but the only downside was that there were no outlets next to the beds (only 1 by the bathroom), but there was 1 USB plug per bed. There were 2 bathrooms. First one if normal with toilet+sink. The other bathroom had 2 showers, 1 toilet and 1 sink so it was a little awkward.

    This hostel is conveniently located next to the train station & within a 30 minute walking distance of all major sites. The staff is friendly & knowledgeable. Although the bottom bunk is a little short, so you can't sit up in bed (not a big deal if you are sleeping!!!), everything else is comfortable & accommodations were great. Amazing amount of storage! It's a quiet hostel but, if you take the initiative to start conversations, you will make friends in no time. Free breakfast is a huge plus!

    Very Good

    Location is fantastic, really close to the station and not far from the main attractions. Staff were okay but didn’t seem interested in more than checking you in or out. No bar or dedicated social areas led to the atmosphere being a bit dull. Maybe in summer when the gardens nice it would be better but don’t go here to meet people. Still using keys for their doors so security’s not great. Generally quite clean and a good buffet breakfast. Also quite cheap if staying in a dorm

    Cons: Old man at front desk let’s the hostel down, hostile/unwelcoming attitude, bugs everywhere, I got bitten!!! There is a big dog roaming the hostel - hence the insects - disgusting. Pros: OK breakfast, very close to main station, younger guy very helpful

Archi Rossi Hostel says

I would say the most unique features of our hostel are the art paintings all over, the free walking tours and our garden. For fun afterwards our guests like to hang out in the garden, drinking and socialising.
We're suited for all kind of guests. We have three completely different room types, all in separated wings of the hostel, with dorms, private standard ensuite rooms and the deluxe rooms, which are on a three-star level. We also have annex rooms (third floor, no elevator) for two-to-three people with computer/TV/safe/fridge and private bathroom.
The Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Galleria dell'Accademia, etc, are all within walking distance, but the one place I recommend to visit is Piazzale Michelangelo, about 40 minutes' walk from the hostel or reachable by bus in 15 minutes.
