Overview

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.

Location

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.

    This hostel was great! We stayed in the female only area, the room was comfortable and they provided towels and lockers. The bathroom big, clean and stylish though not much privacy in the shower area, but it even provided a hair dryer and body wash. The staff was friendly and the common area nice and clean. The hostel provides food almost all day which is a bonus in a budget trip. Breakfast was pretty complete with a lot of options and free drinks all day! I would definitely stay here again.

    Fabulous

    22 Dec 2019
    It was an enjoyable stay , the staffs were very friendly. Moreover, there was food al the time not only in breakfast. One could have a light snacks at lunch and a healthy light dinner. They also provide lock and key for the locker. But even considering all these 35 eur seems expensive as there were many other cheap alternatives were available. Only downside is the eating place is small and there was not enough for socialising.

    Fabulous

    Highlight was the food. Big selection for breakfast, free croissants, cakes and coffee throughout the day and a tasty dinner. It’s a bit unfair for me to comment on atmosphere as corona virus was scaring everyone whilst I was there.

    Very Good

    21 Feb 2020
    Great overall. The best thing is the food – you'll have breakfast, snacks during the day and dinner included. It helps to save some. The only problem is that this hostel still works with actual door keys to lock the room doors, which is not the safest thing – 90% of the time the door was unlocked and basically anyone could get in.

    The building is quite old. It’s not the cleanest facility. The room was quite hot at night. The location is a bit of a walk from all the tourist attraction. However it is cheap hostel.
