There's so much to see in Florence that you'll definitely want a central base from which to explore – that's where our homely Hostel Gallo d'Oro comes in. And with our free all-day buffet to keep you going from breakfast until dinner, you'll be able to save on your budget and get to know other guests in our cheerful dining room. Our rooms, which have a maximum of six beds each, add to the cosy feel. We've also got creature comforts like air con, an elevator and free Wi-Fi throughout the hostel.


The iconic Duomo cathedral is less than 15 minutes away – and if you keep walking, you’ll hit the Ponte Vecchio, the most photographed bridge in Italy. Stop off en route to see Michelangelo’s David at the Accademia Gallery. The Santa Maria Novella train station is just 20 minutes away by foot, or if your bags are heavy you can jump on a bus that will take 15 minutes door-to-door.

Rooms and Dorms

We have both mixed and female-only dorms and all beds have personal touches like your own light, a USB and international adaptor, free bedding and towels. Each dorm also has lockers for your luggage. Our bathrooms have hairdryers and you’ll get a vanity pack with bathroom essentials like shampoo and shower gel. Ask for a dorm with a balcony, and soak up la dolce vita from your room.

Extras and activities

Our friendly team at the travel desk will give you a free city map and get you up to speed on the best way to see our city. We can also organise tours out into the countryside, where you can taste some fine red Chianti (salute!) or visit the nearby cities of Siena and Pisa. We have a self-service laundry area with washers and dryers if you're running out of clean clothes, and a communal kitchen so you can try your hand at Italian cooking.

    I stayed here for one night as a layover. It was a great stay and would definitely stay here again and for longer. The female dorms are on the other side of the building which was actually very nice! There are mixed dorms but those are in the main part of the building. There is a free breakfast that is great! Yogurt, coffee, cereal, bread, etc. About 20 min. walk from the train. Would highly recommend, especially for solo, female travelers.

    One of the best hostels that I stayed in! It was in a convenient location to all the main attractions and not far from the train station. The staff was very helpful and they serve breakfast, dinner, and a snack! The other guests were extremely friendly. I would definitely stay here again!

    GREAT stay! Good location,15 min walk from centre. Amazing breakfast, they provide everything you need: towel, shower gel, even moisturizer! Your bed is made everyday, there are lockers and Aircon in the rooms. Hostel really safe! They serve dinner, which was a life saver for me (Florence was my last stop, so BROKE!) The only tiny thing for me was the other guests, there’s no interaction, there is no social area, or anything to get people to interact as well. But overall, I’d 100% recommend!!!

    Well, what a hostel! Slight bit of a walk away from the city center, however we got into the charming little lobby, up the stairs and were greeted by the wonderful Sonia. Everything was tidy and clean and nice, and they even put a beautiful breakfast on in the morning, with teas, coffees and cake in the afternoon and evening. the room was an absolute delight, clean, lush and tidy. The recommendation for the free tour jolly jolly good fun. A real treat if you're a fan of the Medici household.

    Hostel Gallo d’Oro is in a great location, very close to the Duomo and major museums. It’s bedrooms were probably the cleanest I’d ever experienced (but the bathroom could have been cleaned more frequently). The staff really make this hostel stand out. When we experienced a traumatic event in Florence they were quick to take on the problem and help us each step of the way. They are extremely kind, proactive and responsible at this hostel.

    Great little hostel, everything you need and the food throughout the day is a bonus. Room 1 was a little noisy at night time as it was next to the communal area. Would have been better if guests kept it a little quieter with that in mind.
