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.

    We were in a 4 bed dorm. The room had its own bathroom, fridge, microwave and sink. Lockers you were able to use your own lock. The terrace was great to catch some sun after walking for hours through florence. We were very lucky and had some really rad people in our dorm room every night. Would recommend and stay again.

    You get sooo much for your money. The hostel itself felt super safe and has security by the entrance but a park close by can get a little dark. There are great facilities to meet other (mostly young) people, ac in the rooms and daily cleaning. Relatively easy walk from the Santa Maria Novella train station. Though the pool could have been a bit more clean, it was perfect to cool down in and a HUGE plus. I highly recommend!

    Checkin and checkout was a breeze. All girls dorm was clean and well thought out placement of furniture. No bunk beds!!! Wish they had hooks for towels and power outlets next to each bed. Facility offered comfort, quality and exceeded my expectations. There were all ranges of ages and families. Will stay with this hostel again

    Room was fine but didn’t have air conditioning so was very hot at night. Otherwise comfortable bed, easy check in, and the pool area was great. Lots of people there to meet and hang out with. Decent location.

    Lots of high school trips it seemed. Thus, lots of younger boys and girls that were taking over the bar area for dinners. Super annoying for people 18+ that did not sign up for that atmosphere. Young boys were throwing water balloons out their windows at myself and a friend. Besides this aspect everything else was good. Not super social, seemed like the hostel was booked up mostly of these high school kids.

    Very Good

    02 Jun 2019
    in an 8 person room and Someone came in at 1am and shone a flashlight into everyone’s bed...I guess it was a guest assigned to the room incorrectly. That happened twice. The beds aren’t assigned to guests so you have to leave something of yours on the bed or it’ll get stripped and you’ll probably have a stranger in your bed when you get back. A staff came into the room at 2am, turned on all the lights and told a roommate he was in the wrong room. Checked the reservation, the guest was correct.

    Very Good

    06 Jun 2019
    PLUS Florence got the job done. Clean rooms, comfy beds, nice pool area. Laundry is very expensive. €9.50 euro and you’re most likely going to still need to air dry clothes afterwards. Dryer only runs for 35 minutes. Don’t stay on first floor and leave windows open because there’s a big mosquito issue in Florence. PLUS is on the pricier end and not intimate when it comes to meeting other travelers. Stay at a smaller hostel in Florence unless there is no other option.

    The female dorms were quite clean but some of the sheets had stains. Not an ideal hostel for solo travellers. Many large groups (school groups etc.), there is a nice pool and bar but still not much of an atmosphere making it hard to meet people. Location is quite central but the staff do not give you any information or tips on where to go on arrival. Good for a couple of nights accomodation.

    Great for friends and partying. Not so great if you want a comfortable stay in the city: air conditioning was abysmally ineffective and they expect you to make your own bed (and put on duvet covers)! Never staying there again.

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.
