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.

    Perfect hostel for young travelers in Florence! Great location, a 10-15 minute from Firenze Santa Maria Novella train station and a 10 minute walk to the central market where you can find many shops and restaurants. This hostel has a pool, a bar, a cafe, laundry, lots of vending machines, a rooftop terrace and more! I think there are about 5 washing machines and 5 drying machines in the basement, €5 to wash and €4.50 to dry or the other way around. The washing machine locks while cycling but the dryer does not so I would suggest waiting there until your clothes are dry. The cycles take 30-35 minutes each. My one complaint is that the AC in our room turned on but did absolutely nothing to cool down the room. If you are staying here in the summer, I would highly suggest closing your windows and curtains before heading out for the day so the room isn’t unbearably hot to sleep in when you get back from a long day. The staff were also very friendly and helpful! Would definitely recommend to other travelers and stay here again the next time I visit Florence!

    Okay so the check in was long but only 30 min. I didn’t mind to wait except for the part where you wait outside. The staff at check in was very helpful and nice. I loved the bathrooms and pretty good bed. The only downside was when we checked in we weren’t told the kitchen is locked after 10. Make sure to eat before then or put your stuff in there. Cool atmosphere but it’s overwhelmingly big

    It’s ok. The rooms are very hot. Even though there was air conditioning, it hardly functioned and definitely didn’t properly cool the room. Woke up sweating several times. For €120 a night, one would think that the least you could expect is a proper nights sleep. Additionally, they charge €3 for luggage storage.

    Great location, cool that it has a pool. Security to get into the hostel isn't great during the day. Free luggage storage for guests. :) AC didn't work well in dorm, fine in private room.

    Was a pretty good stay, got back to the hostel at 6am and had to check out at 10am in the morning. I asked if I'd be able to stay a little longer and they were very understanding and let me checkout at 12. Unfortunately, they started nailing stuff to the walls outside my dorm so didn't actually get anymore sleep. I could also carry on using the facilities as well after checkout. I'd also have gone in the pool if we didn't have to wear hideous swimming caps lol. Made some good friends though!

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.
