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. For those little extra home comforts you get larger bathrooms, a vanity table with mirror, big fluffy towels for use during your stay, hair-dryers, and complimentary welcome cosmetic pack.

Birthday promotion:
PLUS Florence has just turned 8! So to celebrate we are giving away a free night to anyone who wants to celebrate their birthday with us. It's very simple: all you need to do is make a booking for a minimum of two nights and as long as your birthday falls on one of those days we won't charge you for that night! The offer is not valid with any other promotion or offer. Upon arrival, booking reference must be presented with a valid form of photo I.D. Not valid for double or twin rooms (so, dorm rooms only). And that's it - we told you it was simple!

The city tax in Florence will require a contribution of € 2.00 per person per night and it will be paid in cash by the guest.

Overview

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.

Rooms and Dorms

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.

Extras and activities

To make sure your stay's full of fun things to do, our team at the PLUS Tours travel desk will help you put together a schedule. In the morning try our buffet breakfast and in the evenings go for a proper Italian pizza at our Opera Bar and Restaurant (don't miss happy hour!). We've got Wi-Fi throughout the building too – you're going to want to share this.

    Nice rooms, great showers. Could have had more power outlets by the beds. Stay in hostels only if you are comfortable sleeping in a room with people who have varied schedules. Some people came in super late and were loud and some left super early and were quite. Invest in some ear plugs for the snorers. Would recommend and would stay at again.

    Would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Florance. One of the biggest downside about this hostel is that it doesn't have a proper kitchen so it's impossible to cook there and they charge €7,5 euros for breakfast , which is completely outrageous considering most hostels either provide free breakfast or dinner in Italy .

    Not too far from Santa Maria novella station and we also walked to all attractions within the centre of Florence. Great laundry, but no kitchen and food not allowed as they have their own restaurant. Indoor pool and sauna as well!

    The hostel is huge, and because of that it feels more like a hotel then a hostel. The bar connected to the hostel downstairs refused to give us five plastic cups, and were super rude - totally unnecessary. The rest of the staff was not welcoming or helpful. About a 15 minute walk to the center of Florence.

    Busy hostel with no not much of an atmosphere. Definitely not as lively as other PLUS locations and it felt expensive to me. The location may be better in summer, but cold and long walks to places in the rain made it a bit annoying to be on the edge of town. Room didn’t have great or talkative travelers.

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.
