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.

    Excellent hostel - biggest bonus was the free food! Breakfast, snacks and dinner were offered, as well as tea/coffee/juice all day. Rooms were small-ish but cosy and clean. Staff made the beds every day. Free yoga classes were offered at a sister hostel around the corner, which were a wonderful addition to a good stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful too! Would highly recommend

    We LOVED our stay here. Very clean and modern facilities. Lockers in every room and they provide locks if you don't have one. Staff was extremely welcoming and helpful, and 24 hour reception is nice. They have food available almost all day (breakfast, afternoon snacks, and full dinner) with a great selection at no extra cost which is an awesome perk. Only downside was the location wasn't the most central, but no more than a 20-30 minute walk to some main attractions. Definitely recommend!

    Loved my stay here, having food available for breakfast, snacks then dinner included in the price was wonderful. The rooms had good AC and I felt my stuff was safe. It’s not a party hostel but, there’s always people around to talk to as people are always grabbing food.

    I really enjoyed my stay here. The best part was the amazing staff. I had trouble with my travel plans and had already checked out. Two women at the front desk helped me for 30 minutes looking up information and even writing messages in Italian to someone to help me figure it out. Some other things they really stood out were that they have a great breakfast with plenty of options, there is super cold water!!, they offer free sunset rooftop yoga daily and they even have light dinner options

    Staff were friendly and helpful, giving me good ideas of things to do/see. Free food was a bonus, very helpful if travelling on a budget. Atmosphere was lacking though, not a social place especially travelling solo.

    Very Good

    Good location but a long walk to centre. Friendly staff. Facilities not very true to pictures. Toilets not always clean and don’t look great. Shower doors see through and only one working for entire floor when we were there. Food served throughout the day but a lot of the time is snacks so cannot always be relief on for full meals. Rooms small and hard to manoeuvre around other people.
