Hostelworld says

We like that PLUS Florence offers so many onsite facilities to guests, including a swimming pool, restaurant and a bar that guests have praised for being 'lively and colourful'. This hostel is located in the northern part of central Florence, near Santa Maria Novella train station and a short walk from the rest of the city. Hostelworld travellers have frequently said they appreciate the 'incredibly helpful and friendly' staff.

Property Description

Welcome to your home away from home in Florence!

PLUS Florence is a unique luxury hostel located right in the city centre and within walking distance to all the top sights, only a 10-minute walk from the main train station.

We set the bar for budget accommodation not only in Florence but in Europe as a whole. You'll easily notice the difference when looking at just some of the amazing facilities we offer: an onsite café, bar and restaurant, PLUS Tours travel desk, panoramic terrace, spacious dorms, a flat-screen TV in every room, PLUS Girls (female-only) rooms, Wi-Fi, DJs and more - and that's just the beginning: you can also relax at our outdoor pool and bar (summer only), or in the winter in our indoor pool, sauna and Turkish bath!

Jump online and stay in touch with your loved ones as we have Wi-Fi throughout the hostel as well as our own internet access point.

You can choose from a variety of room types.

Our mixed/shared dorms are light and open rooms that sleep four, five, six, seven or eight people. All beds come with a private reading lamp, crisp white bed linen, cosy fleece blankets and pillows. Each bed has its own storage locker that can be locked. The rooms also have an ensuite WC and shower.

The stylish and airy private twin/double/triple rooms sleep two or three people. Beds come with crisp white bed linen, cosy fleece blankets and pillows and the rooms are ensuite with WC and shower. The triple room contains one double bed and one single.

Our PLUS Girls female-only rooms have been designed with extra comfort in mind; all rooms are ensuite, bright, airy and stylishly decorated and sleep four, five, six, seven or eight ladies.

All the friendliness of a hostel with the facilities of a hotel – that's what you'll find at PLUS Hostel Florence. We've even got indoor and outdoor pools, an on-site spa with a sauna and Turkish bath! Snap a selfie against the skyline from the panoramic terrace before grabbing something to eat – and drink – at our café, restaurant or bar. Then get comfy in our cosy common room. If you're arriving late, with our 24-hour reception, there'll be someone to welcome you – even if you arrive in the middle of one of our DJ sets.

Location

We're in the north of Florence, less than 15 minutes' walk from the main train station – Firenze Santa Maria Novella – and round the corner from the Giardino della Fortezza park. It doesn't take long to wander into the city centre: the Mercato di San Lorenzo, famous for local food and crafts, is 10 minutes' walk away. If you're coming from Florence Airport, you'll get to us in 30 minutes. Take the LAM PO-FI bus and switch to the number 17 at Vivaldi.

Our mixed dorms and private rooms all have en-suite bathrooms and a TV. You'll find lovely crisp free linen and cosy fleece blankets – so you can get comfy – and a reading lamp. All our dorms have storage lockers to keep your bags safe. Love getting ready with the girls? Our female-only dorms come with treats like a welcome cosmetics pack, hairdryer and a vanity table.

    I stayed with my boyfriend in one of the four person dorms. The room was clean and comfortable. We spent some time in the bar and the atmosphere was fun and the bartenders were polite. All the staff that we encountered spoke English. I only have two small complaints about my stay: my key card was given to me broken so the two of us only had one to rely on, and there was no first aid kit in the room the only one we knew of was behind the front desk.

    This has by far been the best hostel I’ve stayed in! I will definitely be returning if I go to Florence again. My only complaints would be that there was no soap in the bathroom and no hook in the shower, but these are very small things and were just slightly inconvenient. Overall, I greatly recommend this hostel!

    It’s a huge hostel with nice amenities. The location is good, not super centric but walking distance from everything, including the train station. The common room is pretty small for the size of the hostel, so I found myself without having a place to eat comfortably. The indoor pool was nice after walking all day. The rooms are super nice and big and the bathroom was like a hotel’s. Everything was super clean. Staff was ok, but not great (wouldn’t give recommendations for example)

    4인 여성용 도미토리에 머물렀습니다. 화장실이 특히 깨끗했고, 아메니티와 샤워용 큰 수건을 주는 점이 좋았습니다. 전선 꽂을 자리가 위쪽 베드에는 없는데다, 아래 쪽 베드에도 제한적이니 멀티탭 꼭 갖고 오세요. 다 좋은데, 호스텔 첫 입구 현관 보안은 사실 잘 모르겠습니다. 다른 호스텔은 현관부터 카드 등을 찍어야 출입이 되는데 여기는 그냥 열리더라구요.

PLUS Florence says

I think the best aspects to our hostel are the extra facilities, such as the outdoor swimming pool in the summer, an indoor pool in the winter, a sauna in winter, and great bar and restaurant. How many backpackers can say they stayed in a hostel with a sauna and a pool? The hostel is ideally located, with The Academia only a short walk away. The Duomo is also really close to us. No visit to Florence is complete without visiting the Uffizi Gallery - remember to book early to avoid the queues. We also have theme nights such as toga parties in our Opera bar and restaurant. Don't miss out on our cheap drinks during happy hours! We have a mix of ages staying in the hostel, with most travellers in the 18 - 40 age range. I personally find that it is very easy for travellers to meet others and congregate in our hostel. Finally, we have some specific rooms for people with disabilities as well as elevators and ramps that are always available if needed.
