Just a short walk away from Florence's top attractions, Emerald Fields is a chilled-out base for discovering the city. Our free breakfast will keep your appetite topped up so you can wander around the city's famous art galleries and churches. Grab a free cup of tea or coffee and drink it in our common room or garden terrace, where you can soak up the Italian sunshine and get to know your fellow guests.


Getting to us is easy: we're an hour away from Florence Airport, Peretola (or Aeroporto di Firenze-Peretola) by public transport or just 15 minutes by taxi. We're also an 8-minute walk from the main train station, Santa Maria Novella – handy if you're exploring Europe by rail. You'll be super near the city centre, with the main square, Piazza della Repubblica, just a 12-minute walk away. Browse the stalls at San Lorenzo market (a 3-minute stroll from the hostel) or walk a little farther to admire the paintings in the Galleria dell'Accademia.

Rooms and Dorms

Book your own private twin or double room for some quiet with your favourite travel buddy. Or, if you like to mingle and save some euros, choose a bed in one of our small dorms. They're cleaned every day, so the place is spotless. Linen's included, and if you forget to pack your towel you can rent one from us for a small fee.

Extras and activities

We've got free Wi-Fi throughout the building, so you can keep up-to-date with your favourite social feeds and research the best places to visit in Florence. Ask at our tour desk for local tips: our staff are always around to offer advice on their favourite things to do in the city and to give you a free map. And if you want to experience the rolling hills of Tuscany, book a spot on our own organised day trip! You can leave your bags in our luggage room while you're gone.

    Great location, walking distance from any of the main attractions and areas. We were greeted by a very friendly staff member called Moses who was super helpful and offered tourist tips and info!

    The receptionist, Gabriele was really nice and sweet guy! We had free breakfast starting at 9 which I felt a bit late but he accommodate us by asking everyone for coffee. The hostel itself is not that big so we had enough bathrooms. The location was amazing for sightseeing and even Gabriele showed me the route what to see in the city. I just followed him on the next day and it was good enough!I really loved this hostel and would like to come back!

    Amazing location, the friendliest staff ever, perfect coffee ♥️ The place offers luggage storage for free until 13:00 which was pretty convenient. The rooms and bathrooms are cleaned daily. The only issues we encountered were that the window of our room couldn’t close well (but we were still warm because there was strong heating and very nice bedcovers) and there were noisy people on our floor (but that’s not a problem of the hostel😅). All my friends were delighted to stay at this hostel.

    I have mixed feelings about this hostel. The location is great. Just a short walk from most of the major places. The restaurant downstairs is great and affordable. I booked Emerald Fields based on price but was changed to Emerald Palace which is a better location. Not sure if I would stay there again. Maybe for their restaurant below.

    I stayed at this hostel for just one night, as the previous two nights I was in a separate hostel that didn’t have a room open for the third night. Overall, I had a fine stay, but it really wasn’t anything special. The bathrooms were a bit dirty, the facilities seemed pretty old, and it didn’t seem like people really talked much in the building. So it was a very average stay, nothing went wrong at all but I’m not sure I’d book here again.

    I booked here but got moved to Emerald Palace. Fantastic location & if you want a cheap, no frills place just to lay the head then this is perfect. Only qualms I had were dirty bed sheets and no hand sanitizer anywhere. Place is dated but reception staff are very nice.
